    I'd say that you can head over to the Swiftkey official forums and ask them about it, they would probably have as good an idea as anyone.

    All third party keyboards have their own layouts. You can only choose the layouts offer by the particular third party keyboards. If you want a different layout than what is available, you will have to look at other third party keyboards.

    Not what I wanted to hear but fair enough. I really like the predictive corrections of swift key so don't want to stop using it, I'll just have to unlearn what I was taught on the iPhone and adapt.

    I have been using SwiftKey on Android for a while and they have changed the layout some with each major upgrade. It will probably change again next time as well. It doesn't take long to get used to the changes though.

    There are several good keyboards in the Playstore. Some time ago I tried many of them before settling on Swype. One that I also liked was SlideIT, and I could be wrong, but I seem to remember it having and iPhone theme. The keyboard was important to me so I tried many to see which one worked best for me. You might consider trying a few and then deciding. It was worth the time in my opinion.

    I know what you are going through. I've been issued an iPhone for work and it has taken me time to adjust to using the stock iOS keyboard. I primarily use SwiftKey on my personal GS3. Although iOS allows third party keyboards, the version of SwiftKey is too buggy and does not have the landscape thumb layout I normally use. Until SwiftKey updates their keyboard with the features that I like and fixes the bugs, I have to stick with the stock keyboard.
