customizable smileys / emoticons
Smileys should be customizable.
I've seen a lot of people who would like to have the option to customize the smileys, or just have the noses dropped.
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
No need to send an extra character when we're cramming our texts as it is! I'd like to see shorter simple smilies like this :)
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
What's with this static set of symbols and smileys? We're stuck with those we don't use and have to hunt for those we want? I personally require the following:
[ ] ^ ♪ ☆
Solution: Let us customise special characters
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 :-)
I am interested in getting the emoticons that show hand symbols...such as thumbs up or thumbs down. My friends with iPhones send them to me and I prefer them to what Swiftkey currently offers.
Erika Miranda-Bartlett commented
Why hasn't this been added? I think user demand is definitely there.
Manca Pezzot commented
Please please, can we get this? I want to use >_> and <_< often and it is a huge nuisance to enter right now. First I have to switch to the symbols for the "<>" keys and then move the cursor one space back and switch back to normal mode to add the underscore.
This is really the only thing I'm missing with the keyboard.
Please add a setting switch to add/remove the smilies keyboard altogether. We are not all children...
Please, solve this problem!
I need to change smiley keys to my often used words or numbers!
Many other keyboards has this feature
Alex Trofimov commented
Need this feature. Would make typing so much more pleasant and so much more me.
I don't care much for emoticons, but it would be a killer feature if we could fully customize them, so they can be used for frequently-entered text, phone numbers and certain hard-to-enter unicode characters
@eric shaw thank you it's been close to 3 years since I suggested this I hope to see this feature soon
Jeferson Andrade Dos Santos commented
Please. I'm a paid user and i'd like to get this feature
AdminEric Shaw (Admin, SwiftKey) commented
Hi all, we just bumped this issue again with the dev team.
Matteo Franzina commented
I don't understand why they haven't added the feature yet. To me that's the only thing it lacks hurry up SwiftKey!!!
Need the heart emoticon
Yes the same as A.I. Type keybord
YES!!!! CUSTOMIZABLE SMILEYS/EMOTICONS!!! +1000,000,000,000 VOTES YES!!!
Please implement. I don't like the noses. Full customisation would be awesome.
Eric Hedden commented
You guys need to understand that the keyboard can only control the text chars that are handed to the app you're in, i.e., ":)" vs ":-)".
The APP (not the keyboard) controls how that is displayed, i.e., traditional yellow smily faces vs green BugDroid smily faces.
I want that too, just bought swiftkey, its the only nagging shortcomming
Obviously Sarah likes the noses HAHA
This is the long press on the enter key right? Cause then i voted 3 for this. Then i can use custom smilies and put things like "brb" or "<3". Should be easy to do.
