SwiftKey em dash

I strongly prefer the SwiftKey keyboard over the stock Android keyboard, and I have used SwiftKey on my Droid Razr Maxx and Droid Maxx smartphones. But it took a little searching to figure out how to type em dashes.

Here’s how to type a SwiftKey em dash:

  1. Press the 123 key (123 key on SwiftKey keyboard) to go to the numeric keyboard.
  2. Press and hold the hyphen/minus sign key, and you can choose from an overscore, em dash, and en dash:
    SwiftKey verscore, em dash, and en dash

Now you can impress your friends by using em dashes (and en dashes and overscores) in your texts!
