        It's actually ridiculous that an app as advanced as Swiftkey lacks this basic basic feature. Disappointing

        Can't believe this basic feature is missing! Please bring this immediately.

        It appears that SwiftKey doesn't index common data in the phone such as contacts. Searching the contacts is very difficult due to this.

        Learn the most common terms and phrases with specific contacts. For example, writing my initials free form on the keypad would sign, "We appreciate your business! - My Name" to a client. And the same keystroke would sign something else to my folks, like "I send my love to you both - Your Son" And exclude auto-complete words that have never been used with certain contacts. Especially if SMS database is based on dozens of texts with a contact that follow the same format.

        This is pretty basic stuff really

        everyone types names of friends and contacts while chatting / emailing them, please enable this basic feature.
        Swype and others have had this for a long time.

        And learn other contact info as well; email addresses, street addresses and so on...

        This is one thing I really like from the iPhone keyboard. It takes names and suburbs out of the contacts.

        As well as adding a bit of intelligence with names. So if the user types Johns predict that they probably meant John's
