    Minuum....it's nice and small and doesn't take up the whole screen. Great for one-handed typing.

    Crumbs - you want it smaller!

    You must be good.

    It's been so long since I used the stock app. Swiftkey also has themes and keyboard layout options.
    I didn't give it a fair shake. I'm back with it and trying out more of the options.

    I also loved swiftkey when I tried it (used to use swype) but it's a deal breaker that you can't use swyping gestures in pop up text replies. Using TouchPal now and liking it.

    Any concerns about Swiftkeys "permissions"?
    I have no concern about them. They explain what they need and why here... https://support.swiftkey.com/hc/en-u...droid-and-why-

    I used swiftkey for a long time also. But i loaded it on my s6 and after a few days i went back to google keyboard. Swiftkey is just to sensitive on my s6. I can't type anything in without extra letters or the wrong letters showing up. Found myself having to proof read and correct everything.

    I have been using Swype. My fingers can't get the Samsung keyboard to cooperate. I will be trying Swiftkey after reading this post.

    Turn off flow if you don't use it. That causes a lot of extra letters and taps because it accidently picks up movements it thinks are swipes.

    That being said, I am finding stock and Google more responsive at the moment and will be giving them a look for a bit.

    Wow, barely any votes for the Samsung keyboard. That's a shame because I hate having to clutter up my phone to replace stock apps and most phones have been shipping with great stock keyboards nowadays

    How does the beta version differ from the "regular" version of SwiftKey?

    It needs to learn our typing and syntax style. You can choose your own spelling instead of choosing the word completed for you. I totally understand that autocomplete can be frustrating.

    I am not sure all of the differences but it seems smoother than the other version on my S6

    I just started using SwiftKey based off suggestions within this thread. I must say I like it better than the s6 keyboard. I do have three questions...

    1) I did the Google cloud thing but didn't do the part about allowing it access to your sent folder to assist with predictability because of security concerns. Has anybody actually done that? If so do you recommend? Does it help?

    2) Is there a way to alter settings so it puts a period after double spacing?

    3) Lastly....is there a way to alter the keyboard? I apparently use question marks a lot when texting. Lol. Would be nice to have it on there.

    Used all noted here. Always go back to a.i.type. incorporates all the best features of google, swype, swiftkey… etc., but still more options.

    The only thing I don't like about using Swiftkey is that it brings up another button in my nav bar which is a "select keyboard" button.

    I always accidentally swipe on to it and it gets frustrating sometimes, anyone have a solution for this?

    That will always show up if you have more than one active keyboard, and you can't disable the Samsung one.

    I might have to eat crow on this one. Since getting my replacement S6 on Thursday (due to bad home button), I've been using the default keyboard exclusively and finding that it actually gives SwiftKey a run for its money. It seems to have similar smarts in terms of word prediction, and I find the lighter theme kind of refreshing (admittedly, I could just use a different theme with SwitfyKey). At the moment, I left the sound effects turned on, though I don't know how long I'll keep that up. If you don't care to enter words by swiping, you can configure it so that swiping moves the cursor around. I really like the idea of this feature, though you have to do it just right or it thinks you're trying to type a letter.

    Anyway, if you've been a long-time SwiftKey user like me and didn't really give the new S6 keyboard a fair shake, you might be surprised.
