SwiftKey Your Signature Emoji iPhone screenshot 001

Have you ever wondered which emoji symbols you use the most as your unique writing style? Well, the popular smartphone keyboard, SwiftKey, is previewing a new feature called ‘Your Signature Emoji’ which was designed to help you find out precisely which emoji characters you use more than other people.

Available as a beta for SwiftKey’s iPhone users, and coming soon for everyone, this feature takes advantage of SwiftKey’s knowledge base which gets continually updated as you’re typing away.

New Your Signature Emoji stats screen

As you can see on the screenshot above, a brand new stat screen in today’s SwiftKey for iPhone beta shows you exactly what the app has learned about how you like to use emoji, and which individual symbols you use more than other people.

“Another way of describing this is we show you the emoji you over index for,” developers said. The new stats screen is available in the Personalize > Typing section of the new SwiftKey for iPhone beta.

You must be a SwiftKey Cloud user to access Your Signature Emoji.

How do I get on SwiftKey’s beta

Those not already on the iOS beta can add their name to the waiting list.

SwiftKey Cloud

SwiftKey Cloud helps the app learn about your typing habits in order to provide smarter and more accurate typing suggestions over time. You can sign up for SwiftKey Cloud with your Facebook or Gmail account, optionally connect other services like Twitter, Evernote, and give it permission to use your on-device contacts, in order to help SwiftKey learn even more about your writing style.

To enable SwiftKey Cloud, visit in-app settings where you can also delete your account and activate or deactivate the Backup & Sync or Personalization features.

Because SwiftKey Cloud backs up and encrypts your learned language model in the cloud and seamlessly syncs it across devices and platforms, you won’t need to re-teach the keyboard upon getting a new device as all your language specifics such as nicknames, slang, special phrases and so forth are preserved.

SwiftKey Availability

The 47.1-megabyte app requires an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad with iOS 8.0 or later and is optimized for the iPhone 5/5s/5c, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus screen sizes. The app supports theming and let you download free themes or purchase paid ones via the In-App Purchase mechanism.

Grab SwiftKey at no charge in the App Store.

    Too bad SwiftKey sucks so badly on iOS. It works okay for some people and not so good for others, while on android, it’s the second best keyboard app next to google’s keyboard.

    • Guy

      I agree

      • Arsal Cheema

        I tend to disagree
        Fleksy is MUCH better than all the third party keyboards.

        Let me clean this up a bit. All (most) 3rd party keyboards on iOS are amazing. The way Apple / iOS loads 3rd party keyboards into memory SUCKS. They alway lag, stuttering, freezing, and finally doesn’t load at all. It’s not the developers fault it’s Apple’s.

      • I’ve found that the only time third party keyboards stutter is when using spotlight. Usually I have no problems at all apart from the occasional switch to the stock iOS keyboard when inputting passwords which makes sense for security reasons.

      • For me Swype is the best third party keyboard. It’s very stable and the detection when swiping is very accurate.

      Yes, it is so unstable on iOS… and after some updates it still the same.

      • Manuel Molina

        I believe, and I could be wrong, that it has to do with the guidelines within making a keyboard app in iOS. None of the keyboards I’ve used in iOS work at all, but android has no problem. I feel that apple said “oh, you people want third-party keyboards, then here you go. But they won’t be better than ours.” Then apple puts limits on keyboards functions to force users back to the iOS keyboard.

    SwiftKey needs to focus on to actually replacing the native keyboard on iOS. My 3 biggest complaints have yet to be fixed. First is there no ability to disable Caps Lock in SwiftKey. Any time I type iOS, it wants to capitalize the “i” and trying to change it instantly enables Caps Lock. Second issue periods. You can’t disable the added period. I tried to talk to a friend using baseball stats talking about a guy hitting .250. Rather than list it as .250, SwiftKey puts the period at the end of the last letter used instead of next to the first number. Finally which might be biggest of all, is it’s not stable enough to completely delete the native keyboard and use SwiftKey as the Native Keyboard. These are serious issues and SwiftKey doesnt seem to truly care to fix these bugs.

      You got all the points, Matt.

  • Jason Baroni

    Like it’s important to focus on Emojis.

  • eirrom

    Stll no numbers row or arrows row, unlike Android.

    How long does it take to add these?
    How many email do I have to send asking when?
