    • Reduce the apk file size

      hiii devs, first of all i must say swiftkey is the stand out no1 keyboard for android.. but u guys started to neglect the phones running in older versions of android..
      yes, while swiftkey keyboard been a paid app the size is just 15 megabytes,, so i replaced the default keyboard as swiftkey by making it as system app..
      but after swiftkey gone free, oops its apk size is 26 megabytes..
      so if i update swiftkey, it taking more than 60 megabytes in total out of my 500 megabytes in my internal memory..
      so it was tough for us..

        • Swiping up and down for autocorrect suggestions.

          I tried Flesksy and it didn't really work for me. However, the ability to swipe up and down to change autocorrect suggestions, undo autocorrect, and add words to the custom dictionary was really nice. I can see how this would be hard to implement on a flow enabled keyboard, but on keyboard shortcuts to these somewhere would be pretty cool.

            • Key to quickly display character assignments on minimal themes

              There should be a button that you can press and hold to display what symbols are available for each letter when using minimal themes. For example, I don't know what key off the top of my head the asterisk is on. If let's say I could press and hold the shift key and it momentarily shows me all the punctuations that are assigned to each key that would be helpful.

              • Stop auto-correcting Web addresses

                It would be great to be able to type a url in the browser address bar without having spaces added after each '/' and '.'. Or even better, to have an option to turn off auto-correction altogether, or context sensitive auto-correction that would change behaviour in the address bar.

                  • Option to turn off autocorrect when full stop is placed

                    As a long time SwiftKey user there's one thing that infuriates me on a day to day basis. When I try typing a website into a plain text field, as soon as I press the period for ".com" it "corrects" whatever was placed before the period as though it were part of a sentence. This is annoying beyond all belief as I try and link my friends to website or try and do something similar. Please add an option to remove this feature. It'll make using the app a lot more pleasant and seamless

                      • Suggest email when the email keyboard pops up.

                        When the email keyboard pops up the predictive box disappears. Can it be re-enabled but only shows recent email addresses being used.

                        • Add arrow keys back to main layout on tablets

                          I love your Swiftkey keyboard on my Samsung Galaxy S III and one of the things I like the most is the Right & Left and up/down arrow keys [far more useful that using my finger and trying to move the cursor to the precise location to correct text].

                          However, on my Nexus 7 2013 tablet [with far more screen space], the arrow keys are hidden on the less used numbers and symbols screen. In addition, I have read comments on the Google play store with others making the same comments / complaints. Is this something that I can fix…

                                  • Option to disable "enter double tap" to show smileys.

                                    Hi, an idea for the users who does not use smileys when they type is an option that can turn off the "enter double tap" to show all smileys. It can get pretty annoying when using swiftkey and you try to do page breaks and every other tap the smileys come up.

                                      • Add a try button to try the keyboard in a textbox, to see whether we like it or not

                                        Basically under buy, there will be a try.The keyboard with them will pop up with a textbox, and you can try it out

                                        • Make SwiftKey pop up and pop down faster

                                          Make SwiftKey pop up quicker when I click in a typing area to Type text or comment(just let it appear faster when I need to used it) , also make it pop down back quicker(make it disappear quick when am finish with it). This keyboard take a while to respond when am using Facebook app to comment type a status etc. The Google Android keyboard respond faster when it is call up on to Type and when your finish with for it to come off the screen it much faster. Hope you can improve the speed and responding time of…
