    That's just funny because it's so true. Maybe Swift Key isn't capable of being politically correct?
    Yelling? Yup that's how I felt when using Flow.
    Shower? Yup needed one to calm down after trying to write a decently long email.
    The thing I want more than next word prediction is current word accuracy . Not since the beta days of Swype has any keyboard adapted to sliding styles. What I mean is some slide slowly and precisely with a great spelling knowledge. Then there's the rest of us. With the beta I could slide sloppily and quickly all over the place and it just seemed to know what I meant.
    Swype, to me, is a dictionary at times. Yesterday I didn't remember how to spell enunciate. I typed inunciate, it suggested enunciate instead is just one example of why I use it like a dictionary at times.
    This might sound crazy, but works for Swype and Ultra keyboard. If your Swiftkey keyboard is lagging try delete the data in your stock keyboard, especially if it's a Samsung device.

    Absolutely! Nothing better since the original Swype Beta. You could be so sloppy and that app knew exactly what you were trying to say almost 100% of the time.

    Misty hard (just heard) back from the guy over at SwiftKey. He said "we are aware of the [issues]" and "we beta tested for months" but not one problem occurred.

    I'm finding the latter hard to believe, honestly, unless they only used a handful of people and/or one device/version of Android. He then said it was because of the diversities (diversity) of Android phones. I kinda get that part pay (last part), but how come the Google keyboard plays nice with everyone? ABC (and) was the hub part fully realized throughout the process?

    I was told the with (engineers) were working really hard to fix the problems and that a psych (patch) was in the works to be regulars (released) soon, though.

    I'm out for now. Having a really, really bad knee day and even though I know I need to keep it up before it sizes (seizes) up, I can't take the day off.

    Thanks for the update.
    How do you know if you have a beta version or regular version of Swiftkey? I tried to sign up to beta test but I'm not sure if I was successful.

    I was a beta tester for them for a while. To be one they asked you to use their forum but 99.9% of complaints and/or bugs were either ignored or stated as not fixable. Like I said before, they said gestures to erase whole words and other action such as copy/paste/cut/etc are not possible and there were rampant complaints about Flow becoming buggy after a few days of use when it was new but those were never replied to by anyone important. Swype has 1 guy named Jacob towing the company line in his few responses so they aren't much better on their forum either.
