    I don’t know if this is a Pro Max thing or an iPhone 11 thing in general, but I came from a 7 Plus using SwiftKey. Now my new phone has a swipe type keyboard that I’m discovering I like and hate.

    So I’m wondering who else uses or used SwiftKey and either still uses it with the 11 or stopped using it in favor of the 11 keyboard.

    Pretty sure it’s just iOS 13, unless it was iOS 12, I don’t really remember. One of them brought swipe native to the iOS keyboard. I don’t use swipe, if I do, I use Nintype. All other swipe options are too slow.

    QuickPath was introduced with iOS 13.

    I turned quick path off. I am not really a fan of swipe keyboarding.

    Ok, thanks. Been beta testing SwiftKey for a while and still prefer it over Quick Path. Yuk.

    I never found swipe typing to be any easier than tapping the keys I tried it for a full day and couldn’t see any advantage for me.

    I definitely type faster tapping away in the keys. Quick path is useful at times though

    I use to use Microsoft Wordflow keybaord before iOS 13. Initially while I was on Beta, it took a while to recognize the right words with my swiping gestures. But now after using it for over a month, I am comfortable using the Quick Path.

    I don't use Swiftkey because they don't have a substitute for the force press to move cursor for haptic touch.

    I've used SwiftKey for years but really don't find swipe typing to work for me, personally. I tried it for about a week , quite some time ago. Probably an 'Old Dogs & New Tricks' thing....

    I use swiftkey or Gboard. What I would really love is the iPad keyboard where I can swipe down on the keys for the numbers and symbols. Why the hell they didn't do that for the iPhone is beyond me. Makes no sense.

    I'm definitely not a fan of Quick Path. I have been tryping "the regular" way for far too long to change up now. Granted, I may not have given it a fair chance, but it seems so slow and a pain!

    The v 13 swiping works better for me now but I'm totally hooked on SwiftKey's row of numerals always there and for punctuation. For those not aware, you can add that row of numbers in SwiftKey settings.

    The Microsoft ownership seems to have SwiftKey in same league as their Office 365 and Azure apps - stable, updated, features added. Today's Microsoft can't be judged like the past but many people do that with Apple and Microsoft.

    You made me have to switch to SwiftKey for a minute again. Just to verify, SwiftKey did add haptic to move the cursor some time ago.

    I've been using Swype/Swiftkey/Gbaord since this technology was introduced, and today I CAN NO LONGER type any differently.
    Therefore I appreciated Apple introducing quick path, however, after trying it out for a couple of days, I went back to Gboard, as it does better for my taste: better/more forgiving word recognition (imho), shows special characters on keyboard, plus some other minor benefits.
    I'm planning to try quick path again from time to time, hoping for it to improve, as I do not really want Google to continue reading my typing forever.
    One thing I miss when using Gboard is that you can't access self made avatars/animoji, but this is not a very big deal for me.

    I still use Swiftkey but I really wish they would add back the ability to hold the space bar to scroll the cursor. I really miss that option.

    I’d use the built in Apple keyboard if they added a quick key to get to emojis.

    A downside to the  keyboard is that a double tap on the space bar won't do a period, space, Capitalize. That alone is worth staying with SwiftKey for me.

    Maybe it's just me, but I can use SwiftKey and swipe War and Peace in the same time it would take me to type out the first page. :-)

    For me, QuickPath comes in handy on occasion, but I primarily type with the native keyboard app which is more than sufficient for my needs.

    Yea it does. You have to enable it in settings>keyboard. I double tap and get the period space and Cap on next word.

    Thank you. It ‘was enabled’ on my iPad ( I use SwiftKey on my phone) but not happening. I restarted the iPad and now all’s working properly.

    I’m using the Quick Path keyboard now and double tapping the space bar does in fact produce a period and will capitalize the next word. Wow. This is pretty sweet.
