    Unfortunately, when Microsoft chose SwiftKey instead of Word Flow on iOS, the accuracy dropped off dramatically. I still don't understand why they would should the obviously inferior product.

    Windows Phone was ahead of its time.

    After they swapped the auto-correct keyboard on Windows Mobile 10 with the sloppy acquisition of that crappy swift thingie, I was forced to disable autocorrect and go back to that stone-age approach of correcting manually, rather than being embarrassed with my typos almost like how apple phone users are. But no big deal, almost everything was ruined with 10, as if it was a premeditated sabotage.
