    I recently upgraded from the One to the 3T and noticed something odd with the Swift keyboard. On the One I used to have symbols like (@ " &) displayed on the corners of their corresponding keys, so when I would hold down that key i could chose that symbol along with other options.

    Now on the 3T I do get the same symbols when I hold down the same key but i don't see them displayed as a small icon on the corner of the key. I went through all of the settings on the Swift keyboard but I have not been able to display those icons, am I missing something? Or is that just how it is on the 3T.

    Still works for me in 4.0.1
    I think the minimalist theme of swift keyboard does not have this option. Try selecting a different theme or clear the data and cache of the keyboard app.

    You were right! It was the theme, I feel so silly. Thank you very much.

    Maybe a bit unrelated to the thread, but do you prefer swift over gboard? and if so, for any particular reason?

    I have not tried gboard but I love Swift, you can customize so many things. I just google it and Gboard looks really cool, might give it a try.

    Is there a way to uninstall Swiftkey? I used to use it but Gboard has caught up in terms of features and seems to fix some issues I had with Swiftkey. Therefore I'd like to remove the latter but it looks like a system app. I'm a bit surprised as all other preloaded (non G-suite) apps can be removed without a hitch.

    SwiftKey has its own advantages.. It never forgets a word that you type once using the keyboard, excellent predictions, great themes, etc. G board even though provides a few features is no match to SwiftKey... Once we start using it, we don't feel like doing without it
