customizable smileys / emoticons
Smileys should be customizable.
Add heart symbols and more smilies.
If you could add an opportunity for us to create our own smileys, and have them saved with or replace one of the standard smileys in swift key, it would be really nice!
add the ability to edit emoticon :-P :-D :-*
Maybe emoticons should come sooner before another app offers it and can be purchased somewhere else...
I'd like to have the ability to change the smiley faces available. I don't ever use B-) or :-* but I aleays use (: and <3 and etc
When you long press for the smiley faces, you should be able to customize the type of smiley. face youd like to use like without a nose because the nose looks stupid.
I would like to have an option in the settings to customize/add/remove smiley faces from the "quick smiley" menu (longpress on enter/return). I use a number of faces that arent in there and i use almost none of the others... Also i dont put any dash as a nose, like ALL of your smiley faces have. So i would like a customizable "quick insert" menu where we could put hearts <3 as well or whatever we wish.
Find a way to treat punctuation as letter characters in certain 'words'? Also, I don't like the long press for an emote, I can type o.o in about 1/5th the time of a long press
It will be amazing if anyone can customize its smiley page (long press on enter button) on its own SK3.
Introduce more smiley, s and be inventive
I would love to be able to add my own smileys to the smiley menu.
When you hold the enter key and the smiley box pops up it would be really cool if in the settings you can change the smileys to what you want. :) customize them.
There should be a way to customize the smileys as seen in e.g. smart keyboard.
I dont use halv of the smileys that are in there, but would like a couple of my own. It shouldn't be too hard to add this function
Hi, you should improve the smiley faces by removing the, - symbol,
Example, the smileys should look like this ':)' or ':(' rather than this (current smileys) ':-)' or ':-('
Just that. So simple and suggested for so long time ago. Don't know why not implemented yet.
Make an emoticon app for swiftkey to make it funnier and easy at the same time to expres how you think or feel!
Please reverse the smiley option for :-\.
Google and every other app uses the forward-slash instead. :-/
Many of these apps, like text-messaging apps and Gtalk and other messaging apps will replace these text smileys with icons. Everything else works, but they will not replace the back-slash, only forward-slash. Can you please change your option to show a forward-slash instead? That would be nice. Thanks! :-)
Just more convenient based on typing style
Not everyone uses the same type of smilies or emoticons. Swiftkey would definitely improve their user experience if they provided the ability to change the smilies/emoticons used rather than the stock android options
:) instead of :-)
:( instead of :-(
Increase the amount of smileys, and especially the horizontal ones, do it like with the languages, switch from a normal keyboard to a smiley keyboard by swiping the enter bar, so you have a lot of smileys as a keyboard
Setting where you can change and insert your own.
Having the option to add your own custom smileys
Everyone has a different emoticon vocabulary, but today the emoticon menu has the same set of generic emoticons for everybody! Since SwiftKey learns from a user's typing history, why not learn their favorite emoticons, too, and put them in the palette for easy access?
Make it possible to modify smilies. From e.g. :-) to :)
It Will be Nice to edit stock smileys
Make a button which allows you to choose noiseless emoticons such as :) or :(
The smiley can be configure with his Own ideas.
I hate smileys with the nose, like ":-)". It would be great if you could get different styles of smileys, such as without the nose.
You rly should fix so ppl can make harts in smilies i hate that this app dont have it cuz i write to my gf much
Edit the smiles
It's very nice to have a smiley button, but I never use it because none of the smilies are the ones I usually use. I'm sure a lot others feel like this too, and it would be very nice with something simple to replace the standard smilies.
There are some smileys i use frequently that are hard to access, and i would love to be able to replace smileys that are there by default. If not, PLEASE add a heart(<3) to the default list. Many thanks, the app is awesome! (Running the newest beta as of 16-06-2012)
For example: default :-) should be able to change to :)
My names warren and I'm a regular user of your keyboard and I'd like to see more options for smileys when you access the secondary enter key for easier use please
I think it would be good if you could alter/personalise the emotions you can select by long pressing the return key!
When you long-press the enter key (bottom right) you get a menu with smileys. It would be amazing to have an option to customize what smileys are on the keys.
3I think that somewhere on the main keyboard there should be a smile like this (: and also a heart on the main keyboard like so, <3
I think It would be great to have settings for fonts and smilies, I have seen them before but don't know how to do it with my phone without switching ROMs. With all the technology it should be easy for guys like you to fix this :-)
I would love to have more cool characters n faces like Hearst n stars n those cool faces other keyboards have
Please insert a modality to personalized buttons like.... <3 or O.o or similar to choose during typing sms or other messages
I think you should be able to create your own smileys. For example I often use this :) or <3 and it takes too long on this keyboard.
I think we should be able to edit the smiley faces that pop up when you hold down the enter key, for example, we should be able to change the ":-)" face, to the ":)" face, or replace the ";-)" face with the "^.^" face
Please allow the option to change the "smiles" on a long return press. I don't like my smiles with noses.
Hi, I think many people would like that you add some more emoticons to the app, like ♥, ♫, ♪, », ♦ And O_O please.
I think it would be aweseome if you could choose which smileys show up when long pressing enter since everyone is using different smileys
if that should be too hard to implement (which I don't think) atleast implement the heart smiley
Thanks in advance!
IT could be nice if there was <3 in smileys menu
It'll be better if you support for more smiley. Also show smiley as a image, not as a text in the keyboard ;-) My xperia's standart keyboard has almost 28 smiley
User can modify and customize the smilies?
title says it all
well, smiley editor option would be GREAT! furthermore with the custom auto text option that would be so awesome.
Hey, great keyboard!
Just have one proposal. If you press and hold the enter-button, you will get a pop up with common smileys. It would be great to customize those to your own personal liking. So that i can for example like the ":)" more then the ":-)" you can change that. Or if you use ":S" or "<3" more, instead of ":-!", you can change that to! The HTC_IME Mod by jonasl@xda have this feature for example so you can check what I mean. This would complete this keyboard very well! :D
Maybe we can individually customize the smileys or functionalities in the "Enter" button, to make even more user friendly. =)
In the past few months, the keyboard has gone through 3 different behaviors for entering an emoticon:
1) click once, click desired emoticon
2) long press, slide to desired emoticon and release
3) long press, click desired emoticon
Each time it changes, I think the keyboard is somehow broken, because there's no change notification after the update, and I don't always read the entire "What's New" section (if it's even mentioned). Every time I get used to a new behavior, it changes. Please make these 3 different behaviors user-configurable in the Settings menu, possibly in the Advanced section similar to the Long Press Duration.
MORE EMOTICONS! (just want a heart that others can see)
Change the smiley face menu so that we can create custom smiley faces and swap these out for the default ones if we want to, especially so that the dedicated smiley face button can be changed to a smiley face of the user's creation (I just can't take that :-) face and it's a pain to manually enter smileys just to use the ones I want).
a smily editor for edit smilys
Add the :D smiley to the list :)
I am a SwiftKey user and I use twicca as my twitter client. One thing that
doesn't work for me is going to the number and symbols keyboard to put some
smileys on my messages. I would like to be capable of configuration a smiley
key when I want one.
The Keyboard needs a smiley button.
Maybe you haven't a girlfriend ... maybe you have one and if you have one like me you always type this smiley " <3 " ! Is it possible to imagine a menu entry to custom the smileys in order to gain a precious time ...
You removed the :-D and added a button for a hard return. Please change it back or make it customizable.
The emoticon menu should be customizable. This would allow you to get rid of the noses or you could add your own. [ :-) becomes :)] or [>.<] You could make it so each box could be changed and you could enter your own emoticon. This would also allow you to change the order of the emoticons.
More settings for the Smiley button.
Changing the default Smiley,
Smileys with/without noses,
Change the function of this button altogether.
Just like the stock Gingerbread keyboard, long pressing the enter key should popup a window with smileys.
This suggestion is now under review. Thanks for your input and watch this space for more updates :-)
David Chen commented
Yes! Or at least there shouldnt be the "noses" of the smilies!!!
Shawn Wilson commented
Agreed, the emoticon area should be completely custom.
Customize keys & their appearance according to how often they're used.
Vinh Nguyen Tan commented
It's disappointed when this idea has been reviewed for 2 years but still not implemented. 4000 votes are still not enough :(
I also don't want to have the noses. But it would be the best, if the users could change the smileys like they want to have them.
Pat Diaz-Verson commented
I find the smileys are hard to distinguish one from the other in my messages. The features, i.e., smile, frown, wink, etc are very small (and I have my text size set to large), and nearly indistinguishable. Can't they be less "cute" and easier to actually see what they are?
Cait Colacchio commented
PLEASE get rid of the noses, or let me choose! It's such a pain to have to delete them every single time I want a smiley.
Mateusz Dąbrowski commented
Anything going on with changeable emoticons? I would really love to have this possibility (especially to delate the "-" in every one) - also, if you would let us put any char in there we would be able to use this not only for personal emoticons but also special characters hardly accesible (like "^") or just unaccesible (like "§") from main keyboard. Please take this under consideration :)
Brad Corcoran commented
Just letting everyone know I've switched over to Kii. It has comparable error correction to SwiftKey as well as Emoji and customizable smilies.
Still no emoticons? What gives swiftkey, good app with a big lacking hole.
Please at least remove the nose!!
Bartosz Motyka commented
Please, add emojis like those on iPhone and Facebook messenger, they're the best (:
We've seriously been working on this since 2011? ^ seriously, what's the deal? take away the noses or let it be customizable.
Goran Gligorin commented
It would be really helpful to have this feature. The default smileys have the - for the nose, which isn't recognized by some websites (mainly facebook) and apps as a smiley so they don't replace it with an icon. Also for services like Twitter, which are very limited with the amount of characters one is allowed to use, it actually takes more time to create a noseless smiley from the these quick smileys then it does to just long press for : and ).
Aneka Knell Bean commented
Concur with request. Alternatively, downloadable emoticon settings.
Bret Rivard commented
This would have to be my number 1 request for Swiftkey after upgrading to V4. Which btw - FLOW is awesome. We need to be able to sub in the emoticons we use daily otherwise your presets are only half-a$$ed and more customization is what people want!
Mike Miller commented
Seriously, get rid of the noses at least. Or make them optional. If I could choose a smiley when I wanted to type one (and wasn't forced to choose one with a nose, because who types like that?), the bug "Space in front of a colon" could be fixed because you could assume I never type a smiley, and always choose from the list.
Please implement the ability to let us change the smileys to :) ;) :D :P :( and so on!!!
Tin Nguyen commented
Imo the only feature missing from this awesome apps.. (using SwiftKey Flow to type this 8-))
