    Does Swiftkey have a clipboard option where it stores a number of items one may have copied to the clipboard?

    Nintype has a high learning curve, but it is superior to the other offerings on iOS. I assume it's just as great on Android.

    I like SwiftKey because it is the only 3rd party keyboard out there to offers Persian ( Afghanistan, Iran and Tajikistan) language text prediction. But nowadays there is only one provider for Persian speech to text dictation out there which is of course the one and only Google.
    Unfortunately, Google does not have a voice dictation or predictive text on it's GBoard keyboard app. It is only available for Google search via voice. I hope to see Persian speech recognition on iOS and MacOS keyboards someday soon.

    I use SwiftKey on my Android it works the best for me sure Google Keyboard is fine my Moto Z Force has that built in. Thing is I been using SwiftKey for about 3 years so it's pretty much learned how I type so I'm not going to switch to another keyboard unless SwiftKey falls off the earth somehow great video though.

    I used to use Swiftkey, but I recently switched to Google keyboard because Swiftkey seemed to be laggy.
    Have to admit, Google keyboard is nice, However I do miss being able to hold '.' and move right to get a quick '?'.

    Has anyone tried the AYE Keyboard? It seems interesting to me. Maybe I'll give it a try.

    It is funny how google keyboard is like 10 times better on iOS than it is on android. ?

    The problem I have with this texting is because I'm dyslexic I have to use the microphone because I can't spell very well and a lot of them don't have the microphone night so I can speak into it which is a bit disappointing for 2017

    I've been using SwiftKey for years but the new animated GIF function keeps popping up when I don't want it to. It's hugely irritating.

    Are there any simple Android swype keyboards that don't have all this emoji and GIF crap?

    you will have to many mistakes while writing, the best one and most perfect and accurate is "Touchpal keyboard for HTC " search that name on playstore, and you will be thankfull for me

    "The physical keyboard is all but gone" as I watch this on my BB KeyOne

    Years later Apple finally seems to have fixed stability with the keyboard platform. SwiftKey is awesome these days as well as the Google keyboard. The stock IOS keyboard is decent but lacks the convenient features that some third party offer.

    MessagEase is the only good mobile keyboard. QWERTY is unsuitable for phones.

    Its time to review another keyboard in 2018, please do the same video with latest available keyobard and different screensize — ergonomics too.

    I switched from the iPhone 6s Plus to an Android based phone and oh my goodness! Android keyboards are terrible! They're so inaccurate and inconsistent. I could type entire paragraphs on my iPhone at lighting speed but I can't manage 3 works on Android without backspacing an error. I've tried the Google keyboard as well as SwiftKey and they're both just bad.

    Fakk! I'm so late ??‍♂️
