    • Flowing to period or comma should input apostrophe

      Flowing to period (.) or comma (,) should insert apostrophe ('). For example, if flowing "we're" you can flow "w" to "e" to " , " (or " . ") to "r" to "e". Or if flowing "he'll" you can flow "h" to "e" to " . " (or " , ") to "l". This should be an optional capability.

      • (Period) or (comma) "s" should become " 's"

        Typing period (.) then "s" or comma (,) then "s" should autocorrect to apostrophe s ('s). Have the flow do the same thing. Swype had it working fantastically where if you swype from (period) to "s" it automatically corrected to inserting 's after the word you were just typing/swyping.

        • Add home, end optional functionality, as well as ctrl key

          The biggest thing missing for me for a complete typing experience in SwiftKey is being able to go back to the beginning/end of a row instantaneously with the hit of a button, without needing to stop my typing experience to do so manually. Also, the ability to use search (ctrl + F) online and in other supporting writing apps, as well as easily select all available text (ctrl + A) would greatly enhance the experience.

          • Flow Umlaute

            Es wäre sehr von Vorteil wenn das Programm beim längeren Verweilen auf einem Buchstaben davon ausgehen würde dass man den Umlaut des entsprechenden Buchstaben verwenden will. (Bsp.: hatte - > hätte und wurde - > würde bei längerem Verweilen auf der a bzw. u Taste)

            • Arrow keys tablet

              Bring back the arrow keys for the tablet version with the option to have them all up all the time not just under the 123 key. Especially for tables the option to have them on the top or bottom would be nice also. They are really hand to have when taking lecture notes.

                  • Swipe left/right to switch between alphabet and number pad

                    I think it would useful if you could swipe the number pad into place instead of using the 123 button. As you swipe between apps on your phone or tablet desktop being able to swipe to the right for the number pad and then back to the left for your alphabet, This would occur only with the letter and number pads and leave then prediction row in place.

                    • When undocked it would be nice if you could change where the control point is. I would like to have it flush with the bottom of the screen.

                      When undocked it would be nice if you could change where the control point is. I would like to have it flush with the bottom of the screen. Or if there were a centered compact option. That would do it.

                      • Don't count things like 's and 'd as parts of words

                        When I type a word like " SwiftKey's ", my keyboard tries to correct it to " SwiftKey' ", with the apostrophe but no more "s". This is incredibly annoying. My solution would be to not include " 's " and " 'd " as part of the words.

                                Sometimes it's impossible to know what key you pressed because the popup dismisses almost instantly. Increase the pop up time so we can get better feedback of which key we have pressed.

                                • Add Swipe to delete while using flow.

                                  My idea is to use the space bar for Swipe to delete while flow is activated.

                                  I'm an avid user of Swipe to delete, but I wanna use flow too.
                                  So since the space bar is so long. Why not use the space bar for such a function? To get the best of both worlds!

                                  • In swype mode, swype to the only prediction displays other possibilities

                                    A lot of people seems to be frustrated by the fact that, in swype mode, there is only one prediction. The problem is that, in swype mode, when you release your finger, it's still interresting to see the next prediction.
                                    A solution could be: when the prediction appears and you are not happy whith this prediction, just continue to swipe to this only prediction (without releasing the finger), at this time, swiftkey could perform a new search (more time consuming) and propose other possibilities (other words or other form of the same word).

                                    Advange of this solution: when the prediction…

                                      • Delete word when using Flow. From Delete key, swipe leftwards. Most natural. Or swipe leftwards in the "Suggested words" top row.

                                        When using Flow, allow to delete word. Frustrating not having this. Two possibilities:
                                        a) From Delete key, swipe leftwards. Most natural.
                                        b) Swipe leftwards in the "Suggested words" top row. Staring from the right edge, swipe leftwards.

                                          I would like to see this symbol ( " ) in the opposite, to the other side too. It just don't exist in your keyboard.
