Ability to select the default currency symbol.
I often use the $ symbol in passwords as a replacement for the letter s. At present this is only available with a long press on the £ key on the 123 keyboard. Could this be added as a long press on a key on the qwerty keyboard?
€ symbol on qwerty and qwertz layout for Europe
My currency is not on main keyboard!
I have to go to number keyboard.
Make currency symbol on main keyboard configurable.
Many will have this problem. Australians use UK dictionary but need dollar $ as currency on main keyboard not Euro € as default.
Bring the $ back to the main screen
There's only one country in the world that uses the € and speaks spanish, that is Spain. There is no Spanish for Latin America, remember usa? We are the other 3/4 of the actual America, and we use $
For those of us who spell colour with a U but still use $.
Put the £ sign on the main keyboard (English UK keyboard option) rather than the $ sign. It is a real pain to have to switch to numeric pad then sub-pad to get to a £ sign.
US keyboard should have $ on x key, instead of£
Integrate ₹ Indian Rupee symbol & option to choose default currency.

I have set my SwiftKey keyboard to be US English, so I'd like to use the dollar sign. I live in Canada.
Although the £ symbol is on the long press of the $ button on the number keyboard, it would make more sense to have this as the standard button on the uk version. I have to give a lot of prices via text, and it's a little pet hate of mine that the currency of my own country is second option. Thanks!
When using european languages, it would make life easier to have a direct Euro «€» key instead of the key that shows the dollar as default choice.
Note that many physical keyboards have chosen to give access to the € sign as an alternative to the "e" key. I found that quite useful.
I downloaded the new SwiftKey update and now the $ sign is replaced with a € sign.
I am really missing that $ sign. It would be great if the $ sign is placed under the € sign when long pressing.
Another thing is that when you click the 123 button on the bottom left you also see different currency signs. I would expect the $ sign to be there also but there you also see the € sign that is already on the main screen. I think that it should be the $ sign.
Could you allow the user to select the currency symbol which is on the main keyboard? Finding the £ takes too long to select and return.
Still why no £ instead of $ on main keyboard for UK users?
Would be possible to offer UK users the option of a £ symbol, instead of the default $ symbol. Maybe this could Automatically be applied to the keyboard when the UK English language pack is chosen.
I ask for this, as it must be very tedious for people who need to use the £ sign to have to go through numerous taps each time they need it ; i can imagine this small inconvenience would put a lot of UK users off from using Swiftkey X.
Please consider it to keep us Brits happy...
I use English(UK) and am always presented with $ as default as opposed to £.
Can you put the euro (€) key in place of dollar for french (and européen languages). We must do 5 touch for reach it.
I chose the UK keyboard but I still don't have the £ sign as an easy access key. The this is silly. I do not want to have to long press the dollar key as it's not the US keyboard.
A british keyboard would be a great idea that way I don't need to keep hunting down the £ or at least make the second option for the x key configurable so that you can choose what your default currency is.
Local currency symbol in number input screen should be user definable. I would use a £ symbol much more than a $ symbol, but I have to long press to get it. Also only the dollar symbol is available on letter input screen, by long pressing X, but again for my region I would want this to be a £ symbol.
The default currency symbol is currently chosen according to the locale of your phone (not the language you are using).
If you longpress on the x you get a menu with a number of common currency symbols to choose from.

I downloaded the trial version on my HTC One S, I was very impressed also loved the ₹ on the keyboard. I was so impressed I bought SwiftKey on my wife's Google Nexus 4. Unfortunately, the currency symbol on her keyboard is the £ sign. I don't get it - we're in the same "locale".
We have to have the ability to select the default currency symbol.
This issue was first posted in August 2011 and it's now May 2013 and no response apart from the unhelpful one above? I live in Australia and speak English(UK). I only have the option of English(UK) or English(US). My default currency is pounds, despite my locality being Australia.
Nexus 7 ...
This is silly. The whole world does NOT revolve around the UK or the US.
Why can't I have it set to US keyboard (so I can use the $) and have UK spelling (because they invented english and so must have it correct by default)
The keyboard changes with the language. Either English (US) or English (UK). It should not.
I am living in Ireland using English UK keyboard therefore £symbol is default symbol how do I change default to € (euro) symbol. This happens on both my galaxy note 2 and my galaxy tab 10.1 please change as it is very annoying to have go back and edit
My nexus 4 is apparently set to english(UK), so i get the pound symbol... I'm in Australia so obviously I want the dollar symbol.
None of the apps ive tried can change the locale and i'm not fond of rooting or anything like that.

@Sarah Reynolds - I think the currency symbol choice on Swiftkey language keyboard should not be tied to the system language locale setting. On my Samsung Galaxy S3, there is no English (India) system language option. But Indian users use Indian Rupee symbol ₹. Swiftkey does not provide an English (India) [which is based on English (UK)] keyboard as well so I'm forced to use English (UK) as my language with the pound currency symbol. But for the Hindi keyboard it is very annoying to see the pound symbol as the default currency symbol. It should be the ₹ symbol for Hindi and any other Indian languages Swiftkey is planning to add in future. Indian users would be grateful if you could offer English (India) keyboard with ₹ symbol and Indian English words. Thanks!
Please add the option to choose the currency symbol. I am based in middle europe but use the dollar sign more often (than the displayed euro symbol).

Although the currency symbol is based on locale it would be better if we could choose the currency symbol. I am based in Singapore, we use English(UK) but the currency $ not £.
P Morton commented
The thing is, neither UK nor US English is the same as Canadian. Please don't ignore us!
Muhammad Nazir Abdul Hamid commented
I'm in Singapore and we use UK English with metric units and dollar signs. The default on the keyboard is the pound symbol. Highly irritating and inconvenient.
I'm in the UK but need to occasionally type in a dollar sign, how do even do this?
Change phone language settings to English Australia or English US and the symbol will change

Or allow choice of keyboard separately from dictionary.
USA keyboard with UK dictionary

Am wondering what version of Android those with this issue are using?
I don't get the problem on my LG Optimus 2x with GB but do get it on my Nexus 7 using Jelly Bean.
I'm in Australia and there is no Regional setting for English (Australia) so it is set to English (UK). This causes issues with some other applications with distances shown in a mixture of km and miles.
Bill Rodgers commented
Not for me on a Nexus 7 Sarah.
I'm in Australia, time zone is set as such, keyboard is set to English (UK) as it should be to get correct spelling and I have that ugly pound symbol as default for currency.
We need the ability to change it or English settings for countries other than the USA or UK.
I'm in New Zealand also and had the £ symbol as default. Once I changed my default language from English UK to English New Zealand the default symbol became $.
C hunter commented
This does not work correctly. My phone and I are both in New Zealand and the default should be $ but instead it is £. Have you mistakenly added £ as the default currency in NZ? Can you please give an option to choose the default, or else fix this bug?
Additionally, we use both UK and US languages here, so the dictionary should be updated for us accordingly.
Still get pound sign when set to Spanish
