    Move the SwiftKey symbol above keyboard to the right so that it won't throw you off everytinme you're looking to switch to the numbers or symbol and have to stop to think if the SwiftKey icon represents settings or if it represents symbols. I've been usingSwiftKey for a couple years now and it still throws me off every single time.

      • Remove redundant period and comma keys

        put period in long key press for comma key or reverse, and give separate key for question mark and exclamation in its long press.
        there is already comma key with no long key press option and period key long press has comma , period , question and exclamation mark.

          • Let me disable the predictions, and instead remain on the last word I entered to let me select another one there.

            I never use the predictions, and I always keep having to delete the space to select a different option from the one that was automatically chosen from the swipe. Let me just disable the **** thing so that right after swiping I can verify it's the word I meant, and then move on with a space. (You could provide a second option that can let me choose to have the space automatically added once I've selected one of the words for the last swipe. I would choose this, since I rarely need to add letters right after, and then I…

                • Add an option to activate/deactivate more special keys

                  I use my tablet to administrate several unix-like systems with ssh. Special keys like ESC, Tab, CTRL and full cursor keys would be nice. F-keys may an option.

                    • Please stop adding a space and completing a word when I enter a period!

                      In a worls with periods for many types of entries, such as urls, entering a space after every period makes it almost impossible to enter some words.

                            • More space between the enter & backspace keys

                              When using apps where the "enter" becomes send, hitting enter instead of backspace is a massive annoyance. If there were more room between the two, or if enter were always "enter" instead of "send", it wouldn't be such a hindrance to make corrections about the words your app is replacing without me even wanting those words in the first place. Current placement of enter & backspace results in a lot of incomprehensible messages being sent, and then i have to retype what i was originally trying to say AND explain why the msg recipient got a nonsense message from me.

                                    Hi,

                                    first of all I'd like to say thank you. I like SwiftKey, because it's easy an quick.

                                    The is only one thing anoying me: Position change of proposals

                                    Therefore I suggest any proposal to remain of the position, were it came up first, maybe frist proposal always left, second always in the middle and third alsways right, and than 4th again left....

                                    Why:
                                    When I have entered 3-4 letters Swiftkey makes a proposal. As I type quickly I might have entered a 4th or a 5th letter and SwiftKey changes the place based of the letter entered in the…

                                    • option to autocorrect on enter(new line)

                                      I have trouble spelling the last words in a sentence as the enter key just adds a new line and doesn't autocorrect the previous word

                                      • Allow customizable long-press shortcuts. Ex.: long press 'X' for exclamation point...

                                        'Q' for question mark, 'M' for em dash, etc. Even 'S' for smiley, 'F' for frown, etc.

                                        • Application specific keyboard layout

                                          Can application specific keyboard layout be implemented in SwiftKey? Like when I open Android Terminal Emulator, arrow keys will be enabled automatically even if it is disabled globally?
