        • Make the compact and thumb keyboard not mask the screen when docked and undocked

          The compact and thumb keyboard layouts both mask the screen at the bottom as if the full keyboard is still there. Even happens when undocked. Don't know if it's just the xperia z this happens to, but it makes the compact keyboard kind of pointless.

                        • Prediction Definitions

                          integrate dictionary and thesarus into word prediction have the option for online or offline dictionary of course offline would be a larger download, but this would be very very beneficial when typing to ensure we are using words correctly. Also cache and defined predictions so if I looked at the definition for Dog that would be cached so next time it doesn't have to hit the network again, I know this is pretty much a given but wanted to explain.

                              I personally like the typewriter type sound..
                              But it would be better if there are a few more options also

                                  I always wished for a flat UI Transparent theme, with a gray-ish background and some gradient around the shift,space and enter button

                                  • Please don't change my capitalization or lack thereof, if the word is otherwise typed correctly.

                                    If I've typed a word correctly and capitalized one or more letters, in any sequence or position, please don't change the word to alter the capitalized letters. Likewise please do not autocorrect a properly spelled word to the same word but with previously used, different capitalization. I hope I've explained myself clearly. I can't think of a better way to put it.

                                    • Add a few more themes to the store (color-wise) and add a few more languages to it as well.

                                      Would be really good to add mandarin and Japanese to this. And a more organized themes section to the store, but otherwise probably the best keyboard I've ever used

                                        1. the keyboard mode is too many things , like a ( D + % ) sometime dizzy look at the Keyboard

                                        2. Make it as simple keyboard but have a thousand way to typing faster ( Look from Fleksy Keyboard )

                                        3. Invisible Keyboard ( Ghost Mode )

                                        4. Swifting for Delete and Spacing ( recommended ) * Survey No need to hold Delete Icon again for deleting word because with One Swift the word is…

                                        • Add an option to disable Popup on keypress

                                          Hi, I'm reposting this as a separate thread because SwiftKey seems to have forgotten that they put this feature under review.

                                          Please have a look here to see that many of us actually want this feature since 2011!!!
                                          And it was put under review in 2012.

                                          Please work on this because this is something that causes major performance issues.
                                          I'm on a Galaxy S2 I9100 and can clearly tell that the stock keyboard was much much smoother than this.

                                          It doesn't cause a lot of problems when using flow, but while typing…
