              In our latest Beta, you can choose to set the bottom-right button to always prefer “enter” over smileys.

              This is accessible by pressing an holding the 123 key, choosing Settings, Theme, and checking the box by Enter key

              You can find out more about the beta here http://www.swiftkey.net/en/blog/swiftkey-4-5-beta-brings-emoji-and-number-row/

                • Don't autocorrect a word when the user backs up and deletes part of it,. People want it: http://redd.it/122sp3

                  Don't autocorrect a word when the user backs up and deletes part of it.

                  Whenever SwiftKey autocorrects a word that is almost correct (e.g. "bikes" instead of "bike"), don't autocorrect the word back to "bikes" if the user deletes the 's'.

                  As of right now, #1 post on Reddit!: http://redd.it/122sp3

                    SwiftKey Cloud (4.2) has now been released to market! This version of SwiftKey includes improved backspace behavior so that suggested words now prioritize exact text entered after backspace is used to fix a mis-correction or completion.

                    If you have previously purchased SwiftKey, you should be able to update for free (use the same account and app store).

                    See our blog post for more info: http://www.swiftkey.net/en/blog/swiftkey-cloud-launched/

                    Thanks for your support!

                    • Typing a web address is a pain

                      Typing an URL is quite a pain: Www. SwiftKey. Com
                      It shouldn't be too hard to detect if a user is typing a Web address or an email address and adjust the correct functions accordingly?
                      Would be appreciated :)

                        Swiftkey now goes into “literal mode” after you have typed @ because it knows you are typing an email address. It will not correct or add spaces after periods.

                        It will also do this after you type www. because it knows you are trying to type a web address.

                        Outside of a URL field or an email address box we are currently unable to tell if you are writing an email or a web address before you get to these points.

                          • Customize scaling and split keyboard in portrait mode

                            I would like to have it so that I can adjust the horizontal and vertical heights of the keyboards. I findthe horizontal keyboard just a little too wide for me to use comfortably. Additionally I would like a split keyboard for the portrait mode as well.

                            So far I am greatly enjoying this keyboard due to its very smart auto completion and dictionary. I am also loving the fact that the space bar is directly below the letters. I just wish the keyboard had a little more customisation to it to make it more comfortable to each user. Thank you…

                            • 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"

                                    • Move primary suggestion to right or left, not middle

                                      I don't know about others but I use the split keyboard with my thumbs when holding the tablet in landscape position. The keys are conveniently on either end. Unfortunately, the main suggested word is in the middle so you have to reach your thumb across the screen to press it. It actually defeats the purpose of SwiftKey because you don't do it - it's awkward and takes you away from the alpha keys. I suggest moving the primary (green) suggested word to either side so it is easier to hit.

                                      • Backspace should return to previous word (Undo function)

                                        When a word is corrected but wasn't required to be, the user should be able to go back to the original word by pressing backspace

                                          SwiftKey Cloud (4.2) has now been released to market! This version of SwiftKey includes improved backspace behavior so that suggested words now prioritize exact text entered after backspace is used to fix a mis-correction or completion.

                                          If you have previously purchased SwiftKey, you should be able to update for free (use the same account and app store).

                                          See our blog post for more info: http://www.swiftkey.net/en/blog/swiftkey-cloud-launched/

                                          Thanks for your support!
