      • Easier way to change language / language switcher

        I usually use 3 languages: Spanish, Catalan and English, and it's not suitable to have enabled all 3 because predictions are not very fast or they are not in the wanted language. (and it get worst with Spanish and Catalan, because they have a lot of similar words) and it's uncomfortable to go to languages and keyboards everytime I chat or send an email to my different contacts.

        It would be great to change the language in use just holding space, or with a key, or making swiftkey remembering the language used for each contact,...

          Update 5/28/14
          Looks like this feature is being worked on internally. I am not aware of the timeframe, but this has become part of the roadmap. Stay tuned.

          Update 4/30/14
          Thanks for the follow up everyone. I think this is a good idea, and you all have helped me fully understand the need as well as provided several potential solutions. I will take this to the Design and Product teams and see if we can get it onto the roadmap. Obviously I cannot make any promises towards feasibility or timing, but I believe this could be a valuable addition to the product.

          Update 4/28/14
          Hi everyone, thanks for all of you taking the time to vote and give feedback. Currently the way things work for language selection is, as we have so many, we cannot have all languages “running” that are not enabled. For those languages that use a different…

                  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'.

                    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!

                  • 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"

                          • 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.

                            • 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

                                    • 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…
