The SwiftKey settings menu, which can be accessed by clicking on the SwiftKey icon in your phone's app drawer, is home to numerous customization options.
SwiftKey Cloud will keep your keyboard data synced between multiple devices. The app can also learn from others apps like Twitter, Facebook, and Gmail. This can be done by selecting the Personalization option.

SwiftKey can be set up to vibrate or make a sound when you press a key.
In the Layout settings you will find an option to enable arrow keys. This will make it easier to go back and fix a misspelled word.

The SwiftKey heatmap is a fun little feature that will show you which keys you use the most.
