        Is this ever going to be implemented? Seriously, it's not that hard and it's clearly a well-requested feature. What gives?

        Yes yes please! In the Android Community there are many savvy geeks, and many among them are jealous of their battery life and RAM like no other. You can tell if they use black theme in combination with amoled screen. Please allow us to disable Pop-ups. The idea of it also appeals to my minimalistic lifestyle

        It would be better if the prediction bar would go away! But other than that it's good

      • Yash MehtaYash Mehta commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Most of the other Android keyboards provide the option of disabling the character pop-up feature.

      • ShanShan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I'd like to disable for security reasons so no one could look over my shoulder and see what password I'm typing into my phone.

        You can also add a delay time for these letter pop-up.
        At the moment it pops-up to fast. I can't swype the word if the second letter is behind the pop-up. An other solution is to show up the pop-up in front of the text element instead of the keyboard..

        Useful for 2 reasons:
        1. It would speed up rendering on some devices.
        2. Would eliminate the flickering in gray areas on devices like my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition when using themes that have blue pop-ups, like Nickel and Cobalt.

        This is the only real reason I don't use this as my default keyboard. I don't need a key popup for when I type. I disable that in every keyboard app that is used. Since I can't do that here makes me not want to use this. Do you know how easy it is to get sensitive data by just looking at the screen as someone types in their user/pass on their smartphone when this is enabled? Very easy.... Also I don't need the popup to confirm what I'm typing. I try and look at the screen when accuracy matters.
        What is so hard about enabling this as an option for the users that don't want that annoying key press popup? Also if I could put all my votes into this I would.

        Total yes to this. I voted 3. If I can I want to give all my votes to this feature request until it is implemented!

      • mioakimioaki commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The pop up is to ensure the user that they type the right letter. But the point of having a sophisticated prediction engine is to make you not worry about typing the the correct letter. So i really am surprised by the illogical decision to not have an option to disable the popup

      • mioakimioaki commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This. I really hope this will be in the next version. It amazes me to see this is still under review from 2012. It should really not be very hard. Every other keyboard have this. And this should be the first thing to be present in every keyboard. It annoys me without end. This and being unable to disable the multiple language prediction is the reason why I keep trying new version of swiftkey and uninstall it a few day after.
        Swiftkey keeps bloating the keyboard with things like emoji without considering to really polish the base of what make it great.

        This honestly shouldn't still be an issue. This really can't be that hard to fix. That popup can't be generated by more than one function call, just add in a check in the function for the setting that was set. That's all you need. Why hasn't this been done yet?

      • MousemanMouseman commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Ridiculous how this feature has been "under review" for nearly 2 years. Can you not see that a ridiculous number of users want this feature? Even the AOSP keyboard has this feature.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree, an option to enable or disable the letter popup is definitely needed. It is good to have enabled when first learning to use the keyboard, but it is better to not have it enabled once familier with the screen touch.

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Bummer, my default has it, I type better with no popups, it blocks my view :-P
