  1. Punctuation inserting

    One thing that annoys me is that whenever I want to add a punctuation, it is always inserted right after the sentence even if I wanted to add a space before it. For example, if I want to type "hey !", it will always be like this "hey!". You should add an option to disable this issue.

      • Enable separate spell check (keyboards) for each language

        On my phone, I use English more often than my native language, but I do use my native language. Because both of the keyboards are the same, SwiftKey groups them together. As a result, I sometimes get Dutch words while I'm typing in English. A lot of frustration could be avoided by separating every language. I also have korean installed, and I can just swipe to get ONLY korean. It'd good if that was possible for every language regardless of keyboard layout.

        • Do not enable flow by default

          I updated swift key. I noticed that swiping to delete or swiping down was not working. At first I thought it was a glitch. I noticed that flow was enabled by default. Turned that off and my problem was solved.

            • Remove auto-placement of cursor

              Let the user decide where the cursor should be placed within a word. Stop making it automatically go to the back of the word.

              • Put the (visual ability) see as you type) ability back in the application

                It was a huge help to me as old as I am, as texting it is a help to me. Being as old as I am it was an amazing addition to the overall usefulness of the wonderfulness of the best keyboard I have ever before found usefully on all your app. Please put it back in the program.

                  • Learn from current documents (e.g. PDF or office doc) for the Search/Find function in a document reader

                    When having a document open which includes text data (PDF, or an OCR'd scan), learn and make them more likely to come up and incorporated with predictions/autocorrections when typing in a search box in the document reading app.

                    This would make reading and searching the document faster and easier.

                    Maybe only do this when you are in the actual app itself (or maybe remember the learning in generically business apps like other document readers, email, etc).

                    • Move cursor keys or suggestions ornumbers to the right of the main keyboard

                      Right now, when I pick small size, there's a bunch of unused space beside the keyboard.

                      Since my goal is to preserve vertical real estate, I'd like to move my cursor keys or predictions into that blank space beside the keyboard, thus removing a row from the height.

                      It could also be useful to put a Num pad in there (instead), to remove extra clicks required to enter numbers.

                      (user choice would be good)

                      • Different design

                        First of all I would like to say that SwiftKey keyboard is the best keyboard for any mobile os. I think the down side to this keyboard is the design and themes, I think this keyboard can even be better by improving the design language, my favorite design for a keyboard would be flesh, but the problem is that it showed me down by huge margin compared to SwiftKey

                              • Flow removal

                                Dear SwiftKey,
                                Please create a swipe-gesture using flow to delete an entire word at once. I use this gesture (swipe tight to left on the keyboard) a lot when flow is turned off and I want to remove a couple of words and it works amazing. I was a bit disappointed when I found out that it isn't a feature with flow. Press and hold remove key just doesn't deliver the 'flow-perience' for me. Maybe a swipe from right to left that started with the remove key? Right to left on the spacebar? Just a few considerations.
                                Kind regards,
                                Simon

                                • Having the option to replace the "," key with either the "?" or, "!" key.

                                  You don't really use the "," key, it would be much nicer if we could have the option to change to either a question mark or a exclamation mark.

                                      • Auto start SwiftKey when phone boots up.

                                        Allow a setting for SwiftKey to start automatically when the phone boots or restarts, with a choice of which keyboard you want. (I prefer SwiftKey's)
