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

To get around security issues, Swiftkey could use Abbreviations/Shortcuts similar to Blackberry and, now, numerous other Keyboard apps*. See this thread and support it! http://support.swiftkey.net/forums/116689-1-ideas-and-suggestions/suggestions/1958139-autotext-word-substitution-macros-brb-be-r
*These other apps aren't as good as Swiftkey overall, but this lack of shortcuts has sent me elsewhere (I'd like to be able to type "mcfd" and have it type "Ministry of Children and Family Development," for example)

I utilize the same username as email@example.com. I'd really love to be able to have SwiftKey capture this & then I can longpress the @ key for the email & you guys figure out whatever you want to use for just my username.
yes, because we really want a feature that destroys the security on all our passwords. ill settle for it just not autocorrecting username and password forms
Great idea. Would extend to any sort of frequently used short phrases. Should be available in any text field except maybe passwords.
Yes add this. New user. Driving me crazy.

Come on! How long do we have to wait for a simple thing like remembering email address and adding words. Poor Swiftkey, poor!
Other keyboards have had this for ages now and they are FREE!!!
Maybe a 'clipboard' button would solve this?
That way you could store whatever you like.
Access the clipboard via long press on space bar?
at the very least, the gmail account i use for personalization should be reccanized, ju know?

Learning full emails (and usernames with periods) would solve my one major headache with using SwiftKey.
This could be a good way to address some of the underlying issues resulting in this very popular (~5000 votes) request to disable automatic spacing after punctuation:

I think this is a must have for any android keyboard.. I have to type in my email so often I can't believe it isn't a staple feature for any of these types of programs... I know at least one that does it... forget what it is now.

Similarly, frequently used domain names should be learned as well, per http://support.swiftkey.net/forums/116689-1-swiftkey-ideas-/suggestions/2563481-customizable-email-domains

Arent they just auto-added to the user dictionary? If it's not now, I wonder why?
How do I delete old email contact addresses? I own a HP computer.
Bump for this feature! I'm so saddened that this has not been added yet, and I've been using SwiftKey since like my very 1st smartphone. Just being able to add custom domains and rearrange and/or set priorities for them to the @ long hold would suffice. Never ever use Hotmail or yahoo addresses!

The blackberry did something similar, where I ad shortcuts that could become any aliased text. For example, if I wrote "mynum" it would expand to my phone number. If I wrote "mygmail" it would put in my full Gmail address. I even had "dnd" = Dungeons & Dragons. Something similar would be a great solution.
For that matter, how about something to pull in numbers and addresses straight from the contact book?

I came here to add this suggestion specifically. I think about it everytime i need to type in my email. I would love to see an 'E-Mail' button that you can press to put in a default email address or long press for a list of addresses.
Just contacted support:
I use another keyboard so far. Swiftkey is great!
I would like to have a mail address with hyphen being predicted (such as firstname.lastname@example.org). It seems swiftkey learns the first part aweb7@abcf and the second part efgh.ch separately. When I choose the predictions there are dispensable spaces between.
Is there a way to solve that?
Please add custom key for emails, domains and passwords.
I have two emails a gmail.com which is easy to enter and my business address which is looong. It would be killer to have the option to add another item to the gmail.com,yahoo.com list.

Yes Yes YES!!! Basically macro buttons that when pressed will use any canned word, phrase or sentence we program into them. Great for email addresses used alot, passwords, etc. I use a clipboard add on for this, but dedicated macro keys would be SO MUCH BETTER!
