    • 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.

        • Quickly toggle Flow

          I love tap-typing on SwiftKey, and one of the most defining features that I pretty much can no longer live without is the gesture to backspace an entire word by swiping to the left. However, when I only have one hand available, I find Flow to be very useful as well, but activating Flow disables the backspace gesture. I would like to suggest that there be a quick toggle on the keyboard, or maybe even better if there was one at least in the small settings menu that appears when holding down the "123"/Swiftkey logo key rather than having to…

            • Formatting bar on the Android version aka italics bold and underlining

              The iPhone version almost immediately got a formatting bar where they slide left from correction bar, where is ours?

              • Apostrophe prediction capability

                As nearly as I can tell, the word prediction function doesn't understand apostrophes. If I type I', I would expect I'm and I'll to be predicted, but this doesn't happen. Likewise we' should produce we're or we'll. This seems like an easy fix.

                • Slide left instead of Press long/enter to access to emoji

                  Be able to slide left instead of Press long/enter to access to emoji, it is possible ?

                  It is a little bit too long to make a "Press long" on enter to access to emoji especially in Samsung Message app ..

                  Sorry my english isn't really good ...

                  • Long press and slide to select smiley

                    After long pressing the enter key (without releasing) sliding your finger to the desired smiley and releasing should select that emoticon. It appears this feature was lost in a recent update.

                      • Allow "m" key and "back" key to learn or be programed by user to correct for when one is hit when the other one was desired

                        For example you could allow us to alter the size of each key perhaps? And maybe that could be rolled out as an option for other troublesome keys?

                          • Caps Lock Behavior Update

                            I don't know if this is a feature of Swiftkey (it feels more like a bug to me) but the behavior for Caps Lock is weird.

                            On other keyboards, double tapping the Shift Key rapidly will enter Caps Lock Mode, however, if you tap Shift, or already in AutoCaps, and a second or so has passed then tapping shift again returns to lowercase.

                            This isn't the case for SwiftKey. No matter what, tapping Shift twice will enter Caps Lock Mode. This is a really annoying behavior especially since I like AutoCaps but sometimes (less often than not) I'll lowercase my…

                              If I enter 3 characters , I read some suggestions.
                              But entering the fourth character , the suggestions do not change !
                              It's usefull to change them ( plural , singular , male, female , etc. ), otherwise I would have already chosen one of the suggested word... :-/

                              • Language Specific Punctuation

                                Some languages like Spanish use different punctuation such as ¿ / ¡.

                                These punctuation still show up even if I'm using a language that doesn't require them (like English). This also forces the normal "!" halfway across the screen.

                                The only way to disable them is to disable Spanish. It would be nice to only have language-specific punctuation (similar to the setup with accent marks).

                                Thank you!

                                  • Space before point

                                    it would be awesome if points wouldn't automatically be placed next to the last letter. e. g. if you want to make a smiley like "._." its really annoying if the first point is placed directly next to the last word... maybe make an option for enabling or disabling this function
