Re: Remove swiftkey

Hi @vassiliys,

 

It is to my knowledge not possible to disable or uninstall the Swiftkey keyboard since it is the default keyboard of the phone. I can forward this as user feedback though.

Re: Remove swiftkey

I liked xperia keyboard much more. I understand that development of it costs but swiftkey isn't by far as beautiful and simple to use as swiftkey. Especially switching between different languages and emoticons are better in xperia keyboard. Also emoticons were more beutiful.

Hi @MarkP1974,

 

I understand how you feel and will forward this as user feedback.

 

You may already be aware but it is possible to download other keyboards through Google Play. If you search "keyboard" there should be plenty of other keyboards available, maybe you'll find one you like better amongst them. Slightly smiling Face

Why you don't allow to download default Sony keyboard from market??? I can`t understand such things! All users are used to have this keyboard in older Sony phones. Please give it back!!!

Swiftkey is very bad for international users. It is a shame that we cannot delete it. Stock android keyboard is better.

Re: Remove swiftkey

Ican only agree. The Xperia keyboard is a beautiful product, SwiftKey simply can't compete. Sideloading the Xperia keyboard .apk was one of the first things I did after receiving my phone. I really hope Sony will rethink the decision to discontinue it.
