    Default Re: S3 - Swiftkey Flow Beta

    I think I'm going to go back to Swype. I gave this a shot but I can't get over a few things. I know this is how Swiftkey works, but I don't like them:

    1. If I "Flow" (or whatever it's called), I can't get over that the suggested words are what it thinks I want next. I much prefer Swype's suggested words being alternatives to what it thinks I swyped. I know it's a trade off, and Swiftkey's way is better.....if it recognizes what you were trying to type (but apparently I suck worse at Swiftkey's flowing than I do at Swype's swyping).
    2. I also much prefer Swype's ability to just tap on a word and get alternative suggestions. On Swiftkey I have to tap the word, then it only give suggestions for the letters before the cursor, so I then have to drag the cursor to the end of the word.


    I don't know....I felt I gave it a fair shot and been using it since day 1, but I just prefer Swype and am much faster with it. To each their own.

    This is my first post using the new keyboard and being that I was a long time Swyper it seems to work very well. I've been using the non-flow version for a few weeks in preparation for the beta.

    There are still a few things to get used to but so far so good.

    I'm quite happy with the continuous input mode on the stock Samsung keyboard, so unless it's earth staggeringly good I'll give it a miss

    I'm really looking forward to the final version. I type most often in landscape, using two thumbs. But sometimes I want to type in portrait, using just my right index finger. SwiftKey Flow will let me do either, depending on what I want.

    I'm just hoping they polish it up before its final release. And I have read that Flow will be an upgrade for those already using a paid version of SwiftKey. Good thing I took the app back when it was an Amazon Free App of the Day.

    After a couple days I've switched back to Swype. Like monkey said above. The suggestions fit more to my swyping. Also the space thing with swift key is aggravating.

    After you "flow" it automatically spaces. Swype automatically adds spaces as well but only does it after you start to Swype another word. Which is way smarter and more efficient especially for someone who likes to punctuate.

    I really like Swype but also like the predictions in SwiftKey so I'm giving it a shot for a while.

    Exactly! I couldn't agree more, and I also prefer the alternative/predictive suggestions of: .

    Punctuation isn't an issue. If you insert a punctuation, it deletes the space. However, the word prediction is very different from swype, and I can see how that can be annoying. I'll be sticking with swiftkey though

    I like it, but I'm getting a lot more errors on this than I was on the 4.2 keyboard on the N4. Seems to want to spell much bigger words that I've never even heard of sometimes.

    You're not obligated to swipe. You can still tap, or even combine the two.

    It's learning your way of using words, spelling, and frequently used phrases. Be patient. And don't forget to submit feedback to them.

    The "flow" part of Swiftkey Flow does make the keyboard better... but when it comes to swyping... the Swype Beta keyboard is better. I find myself getting a lot of dumb mistaken words when I swype with Swiftkey Flow. It gets annoying sometimes. Swype 80% of a sentence... then have to type out the other 20%.

    Downloaded the beta this morning at 930. 8 hours later with in screen time if 1 hour my battery is at 40%. I am going to go back to regular swiftkey and see if my battery goes back to normal. I have seen a few posts mentioning battery drain so I'm glad I'm not alone.

    I downloaded the new beta and it doesn't seem to be draining the battery as much.

    Yeah, the new beta (4.0.0.6) is alot better. No way near as much of a RAM hog and isn't killing my battery. Flowing is better and the "hunt and peck" is just as good.

    Yeah, but the same thing happens, at least for me, with Swype Beta (e.g.- my post #72 on this thread). I'm still using Swype Beta, but it's getting kinda embarrassing at times, as no matter how much I proof-read what I've swyped . . . it's almost as if it has a mind of it's own, and a very stubborn one at that, and it seems like even after I've proofread and corrected/changed words–to what I want them to be–Swype Beta changes them back to what it thinks they should be. . when I'm not looking, or right before it sends! lol

    I'm thinking of uninstalling – and doing a re-install – as it's also been hanging-up ever since I updated my Rocket Player & Classic Notes apps.

    I hope everyone who has an issue or question is contacting the Swiftkey VIP forum. Don't forget, this is a beta version that is still being refined. Your input is what will help make it great. So please pass on your input to the developer through the VIP forum.

    I deleted the other version since Flow also does the same thing.

    I've been swyping since I got a Captivate a few years back. I tried the SK Flow and I'm back to Swype. I was having way too many errors with SKF, even tried "learning" through gmail and facebook, then tried to reset everything and not learn through that. I was much slower with it, less accurate, but I do miss the pink keys
