I removed it and boom. Night and day. I can again type at full speed with SwiftKey as I did on my note 2. Lag is completely gone.

I found this by fiddling with limiting processes (to 4) in development options. I noticed this widget had to constantly restart.... So removed it and returned running process option back to default.

Try it. Like a new phone.
Nice find, Jeffruby. I'm sure it's applicable across many devices as well as the S4.
