I have both Switfkey and Swiftkey Beta installed, and I have lost "flow" functionality with both of them (it is enabled in the Swiftkey settings, and has been working fine up to now). I did accept the Swiftkey update not long ago, but don't know for sure whether the problem existed prior to the update.

I'm running Phoenix ROM 8.0

Has anyone else had this problem?

Re:
I had this problem on my i9505 under Cyanogenmod 11 (4.4.2). I don't know if you tried this already, I uninstalled both apps and put only SwiftKey (didn't actually liked the beta so much) back, and normal swiftkey started "swiping" again. Haven't tried with the beta. Also, between the uninstalls and installs, rebooted the phone and set default input to AOSP.

I just tried uninstalling the beta and I got predictions back on the normal Swiftkey release. But I really like the numeric keys on the Beta so tried to install it again from the Swiftkey beta site. For some reason this version expired on June 5th - i.e. it'll download and install but it's an expired version.

Does anyone know where to get a Beta that hasn't expired?

Tried googling for New update for SwiftKey emoji beta out today 2 june (2 june is the latest beta release I think). Hit the first result. Link working, apk working, does not seem like expired to me. Isn't this the beta you were talking about?

It turns out that the link I had to the beta (from Google) was a link to an out-of-date beta. On this occasion Google was not my friend :0(

So it's all OK now? Swiping works? (if it turned out OK for you I'd put up the beta again as default keyboard.. to give it another try).

Yep swiping is back too. It seems that expiry of the beta had also crippled the mainstream release. All was resolved when I found the correct version of the beta.
