    • Please don't auto correct my possessive. For example "taylor's" auto-corrects to "Taylors". I spent 450ms putting it in. I want it.

      Special characters like apostrophe and hyphen should be treated as if the are intentional since the take so long to enter. "Deal-breaker" should not be corrected to "deals breaker"

      • Learn from text file -- Learn from Whatsapp (Volume 2)

        I know that Whatsapp do not offer an API to access their messages. But it is possible to export the history of Whatsapp as an txt-file (you can choose this option in the settings of Whatsapp). It would be great if Swiftkey can analyze this txt file!

          • Store list of frequently used usernames and email addresses

            I would like to see the option to either store or cache a custom list of usernames and email addresses so that we don't need to type them in full every time. Maybe add them to the .com button or let the prediction feature do the job. Thank you

            • Personalization without Cloud Sync

              Personalization settings should be separated from Cloud Sync. Not everyone wants to use Cloud Sync yet everyone does want to use one or all the personalization options.

                  • Own spelling checker dictionary i Swiftkey

                    Add words to your own userdefined spelling checker dictionary to get rid of typing errors. Swiftkeys correction by learning is not good enough if you by mistake repeat typing wrongly spelled words. It will on the contrary learn wrongly spelled words

                    • It would be great to eliminate autocorrects that are constantly wrong.

                      Eliminate constant wrong completions. I constantly get 'fur' instead of 'for' and 'abs' instead of 'and'. It would be great to tell the app that I will literally never type 'fur'.

                          • first letter missing prediction i.e. ight could be right. why do you assume that i is the first letter

                            often for some reason my Samsung note doesn't register the first key I press. this makes predictions useless. how hard would it be to predict as if the first letter is missing.

                            • Learn apostrophe in names.

                              It would be great if names apostrophed came up in the predictive text. For instance if I write "Sarahs" it would be nice if "Sarah's" automatically came up at least for common names.

                              • Auto-Correct "Undo" Button that Learns

                                There should be a button to undo an auto-correct. While helpful most of the time, auto-correct can be frustrating when it "corrects" a word into something the user doesn't want. Having a simple undo button would alleviate this frustration, and the software could learn that when auto-corrected text is followed by an undo, that specific auto-correct suggestion should not be used in the future.

                                • Learn abbreviations: Don't insert space after dot and capitalize next letter

                                  It's quite annoying that I have to "remind" SwiftKey to not capitalize letters that come after dots in abbreviations I type all the time, e.g. "e.g." and such. When I write "e.", SwiftKey puts a space after the dot and then capitalizes the next letter. Then I have to skip back, type "g.", and then uncapitalize the next letter in the next word.
                                  Instead, SwiftKey should learn from my many "e.g."'s so that when I write the letter e and then a dot, it expects/predicts the letter g (not capitalized) and then maybe another dot. And in particular, it should…

                                    • Let me disable or override autocompletion.

                                      Let me disable or override autocompletion. If I backspace over a suggestion, it should not come back. I tried to type "Damn" and it was replaced by "Danny" three times. There was no way to type the word I wanted!

                                      • Switch for umlauts

                                        Please add option to turn on/off using umlauts. Many people speaking languages with umlauts write anyway without umlauts. Eg. when writing SMS message with ASCII characters has limit of 160 characters, SMS with umlauts can have just 70 characters . and there are other cases when not using umlauts is useful / necessary. Now when I write sometimes with and sometimes without umlauts, SwiftKey prediction is a mess of words with and without umlauts. It would be great to have option that SwiftKey would discard umlauts on background based on user preference. Looking forward when this will be implemented. Effort…

                                        • Shorthand writing

                                          It would be very nice if we'd have the option to define shorthand words (or short-cut combinations) for words we know we'll be using a lot. (It would be awesome if they could be auto-detected)
                                          A good example would be that I'd type 'ap' (without quotation) and SwiftKey would suggest 'Android Police'.
                                          You could then add an option to automatically apply this suggestion if a space is entered (for each entry individually or a general behavior option) in the settings menu.
