    It seems to me that I've seen ai on sale many times. I wrote a review on it at our s5 forum I'll dig up the thread and see if I added why I went away from it

    SwiftKey was actually a paid app back in the day. That's what frustrated me. After 30 days you were cut off from all the great features (including your saved predictions) until you paid for it. Of course I didn't mind at the time because it was a great app and I was happy to support them. They got paid from millions of people and then poof, all support stopped. I don't know, IMO it just seems like they suddenly stopped caring awhile ago. This lag issue has been going on for far too long across far too many devices, for it to be an "isolated incident".

    I'll get that email fired off when I get home. With permission I'll link to this thread directly.

    The problem started about the same time they got into iOS, AFAIK.

    Thanks for all the the help. It sucks this has been going on for so long. Like you said, it's a paid app. Granted it's only 3 or 4 bucks, but still, I paid you, make it work right.

    I'm still testing keyboards, I'm using touchpal right now. It's pretty good. I remember using it on my s3. Predictions are OK, it's swipes smooth, types smooth. Cons: no arrow keys on top. No number row. And they major one, 2.99 a year. (call me cheap lol)

    I just deleted Swiftkey too...tired of the typos and crap..and it "fixing" words to words I surely didn't intend...

    I will miss the split keyboard though..

    I thought many new keyboards had the "thumb" layout.

    I think the SwiftKey devs will be very interested in the contents of this thread. Now that I'm home I can get that email fired off to them.

    I've only experienced lag with its latest update and especially in Textra. Textra even sent out a text message saying the problem was with Swiftkey. I thought it was Textra initially at ifrst because I never experienced lag with Swiftkey with any other app.

    I don't know if I'll switch back, Google keyboard has learned my typing quite quickly.

    It wasn't so much the lag..it was how it was trying too hard to predict and getting it wrong more often than not..I'm not having that issue with google keyboard...and my heat map showed i was pretty accurate as far as finger placement..

    It's been nearly impossible to predict if the flow feature all respond correctly since the last update. It'll work fine then slow down and suddenly hand (hang) in the middle of predictions/interpretations it used to blow throw (through) workout (without) breaking a sweat. If course, the really, take (huh?) oddball predictions/interpretations of my flow were always present, may not at the same level I am (seem) be (to) be seeing since the update.

    See what I mean? It injected a word and really blew it in (on) some others.

    I also really don't like how they took away the shower (slider) allowing me to customize is (if) I wanted accuracy or (it screwed up twice here, yelling (telling) me I said stored, then spotted) speed.

    But they tacky (really) seem far more interested in the iOS market than Android. Maybe they make more money over there. I don't know. But it really feels like they think Andros Andros (android) is a secondary market despite cutting their teeth here back when Apple wouldn't let anyone pole (pollute) their toys with antimicrobial (anything - and it predicts antimicrobial almost every fragging time I try to flow the word "anything") other than the sick (stock) keyboard.

    I miss the days I was telling (yelling) about how the word for (foot) was Wakarusa (always) filed follows (followed) by the word fish frosh (fetish) as a prediction for the lovely phrase "I just dropped a full may (jar) of pasta sauce on my foot fetish." in a text I sent my at-the-time girlfriend and then had to explain.
