    When you write an email address or a Web site, I always get and auto word or an space, I think that in that cases, you must let end the Web page (after dots) or an email address (after @)

    • Hold swipe to delete multiple words.

      I just switched back to SwiftKey after being on fleksy for a few months and I miss some of the gestures like being able to hold a left swipe to keep deleting words until you let go. I also miss the ability to swipe up to change the predicted word but maybe that's taking too much from fleksy.

      • Improving flow functionality

        I have moved over from swype, and there are a couple of basic features that i miss:
        The first is to implement basic smiley faces [ :) :( :/ :S ] into flow
        The second that when using flow in swiftkey, when long pressing to type numbers, to continue you have to hit space, where ideally to keep speed up you could just start the next word and move on.

            • Gesture swiping.

              To make typing faster, enable adjustable sensitivity gesture swiping that was included in the previous versions. It would allow people to customize their senility to their own personal likings as well and habits.

                • Swipe to delete last word should just delete one word. It worked better that way.

                  In classic SwiftKey, when it completes a guess for multiple words, it used to be it would treat them as different words. Now it treats it as one long word. But if I type three words and only the last one is wrong, I can't quickly delete it I have to delete the whole phrase, it's way more often the last word is wrong than the whole phrase and there isn't even an option to go back to the old behavior!

                    • Option To Remove Number Pad

                      I would like the option to remove the number pad allowing the space to be filled with more symbols. I feel this would be of great use to users who already enable the number row feature.

                      • Make the Emojis menu the same theme currently used

                        Currently, the Emojis menu doesn't match my current theme, which for aesthetically-inclined people like me, makes for an uneven user experience.

                        • Autocorrect

                          My only gripe is when I spell a word correctly and then it autocorrects to another word. If I spell a word correctly the #1 default prediction should be the word that I just spelled. These are simple words too like 'of' or 'for'. I'm constantly typing of and it is switched to if. Or vice versa.

                          • Minimal White keyboard

                            You should create a new themes including a Minimal White keyboard. The Minimal Black is my favorite but I would like to have a Minimal White as well. Most other developers had designed one already, and I am waiting for you to design one as well. Thanks

                            • Spaces after commas or full stops

                              When you swipe a word,then add a comma,the app doesn't add a space after the comma automatically - which means a waste of time fiddling about to add one back in . it doesn't handle swipes after full stops to well either.

                                It goes out of dictation mode too quickly and bounces around a too much in swype mode.

                                • Additional language

                                  there is not custom languages I suggest you to add option to additions language by user. By this way user will able to add his/her language in the device. if you think do something like this I strongly suggest you to add function to import/export custom added word to text file. And syncing with google account. Please consider this.:) for example my native language is kurdish(kurmanci dialect which use Latin alphabet as English only it contains extra 3letter which can access by long pressing some letter in English keyboard). I know you may not able to add all languages in…

                                      • Vibration length and long touch length setting.

                                        Hello, I want to complain about the settings - especially vibration length and long touch length options. While is it so precise, why can I set every single millisecond. I think, that everybody want some round number. One ms makes no noticeable difference but it makes it impossible to set exactly number, that I want (round number, e.g. 200). Why isn't it 10 20 30 40 50...?

                                        • Type symbols above the numbers on a standard keyboard by hitting the shift key.

                                          You should be able to type symbols by pressing the shift key and the corresponding number like you do on a physical keyboard. There should be an option to make the layout of symbols and numbers identical to that of a physical keyboard. Currently it is very hard to type the complex passwords containing symbols you can type on a physical keyboard.
