    How do you mean "forbid?" I realize the prediction can be sort of wonky sometimes, but I haven't ever had a word I couldn't get through.

    Guessing here, but perhaps it keeps auto-"correcting" when you hit space to go to the next word? No mattter how many times you go back and type the word? In that case, once you finish typing the word and ensure you have it spelled correctly, and BEFORE you hit the space or punctuation keys, tap the word as you typed it in the predictions selections above the keyboard. That adds it to your personal dictionary and will recognize it then and in the future.

    The flip side of this is that you can long press any word in the predicitions to no longer have it suggested (for excample if you saved a typo or misspelled someone's name previously).

    I tried really hard to get going with Fleksy because I like the BlackBerry style layout that only it (and BlackBerry) seem to provide. I even uninstalled SwiftKey and paid for Fleksy...still only lasted a few days on Fleksy. Back on SwiftKey. Again.
    You guessed right. It is absolutely infuriating to keep trying to type in a name or word over and over. And it will do this every time it encounters an unknown name/word? I really did like it at first....

    Auto correct on SwiftKey just drove me back to the playstore. Although the keyboard is far superior to Google, Swiftkey will occasionally forbid me from typing certain words, names. Unacceptable. How is this okay for anyone?
    There are always three suggested words above the keyboard as you type, and the one on the left is exactly what you type. Tap that and it will put in your typing and learn it as a word for the next time you type it.

    I tried using swiftkey for almost a full day, but it just didn't like my swyping technique which is my preferred input method. My fingers seem to be more tuned to the google keyboard (or vice versa), and I get much better results from it. I'm actually a FlexT9 fan, even though it's been unsupported for years, but when I got the Turbo, I decided not to install FlexT9, and have been happy with the default goggle keyboard, which was quite a surprise for me.

    But still, props to FlexT9, and RIP.

    Then all you had to do is tap the word in the predictions before you hit space or a punctuation key. Problem solved.

    And for his specific complaint, for that time, as well.

    Didn't know this. Always wanted a personal dictionary and here it was.

    Coming from an amputee (right hand) I absolutely love Swiftkey! I type one handed exclusively and it lets me transition the keyboard for my left hand, even letting me resize to make it less of a "reach" for my thumb. And i have rather smallish hands, using a Droid Turbo WITH a Pure gear case. 2 thumbs up if i could ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜ i would!

    I love Google Keyboard, but I wish that you didn't have to turn your ringer volume up the whole way to hear the keyboard sounds. Anyone know of a replacement that has sounds governed by the media volume?

    Swype has always had the best predictions for me. The latest update has resolved the long-standing lag in some input boxes, and it's working really well now. I used Swiftkey during the time I was waiting for Swype to get fixed; it is decent, but I can never get over the fact that there is always an extra space after everything I type.

    Swiftkey sucks. I will never get past the fact that you cannot quickly text what you want how you want. Their corrections are aggressive and cannot be turned off. I am a speed texter and swiftkey is not nearly swift enuf. Verrrry slow texting with "swift"key.

    Google Keyboard interprets my swyping better than anything else out there, and I have gone back and forth more than once. It's definitely a personal preference.
