  1. More themes like Pitch and Neon.

    I really like how the Pitch and Neon themes look. I like how it's kind of a minimalist look because the other themes make the keys look blocky. Can you make more themes like Pitch and Neon but with different colours?

    • Em-dash and minus sign

      Currently, the hyphen (-) is located above the "g" on my keyboard (4.1.3.149 on unlocked GN 4.3) and the en-dash (–) above the underscore on the numbers page, both for long-press access. There is no key for the em-dash, and the key for the minus sign is located near the plus sign, but the minus sign uses the identical character to the hyphen. The minus sign is supposed to be slightly higher on the line of text and slightly longer then the hyphen, yet shorter than the em-dash. (http://www.punctuationmatters.com/the-difference-between-a-dash-and-a-minus-sign/) Please update the keyboard to include the hyphen, minus…

      • Remove the seldom-used "comma" from left of the space bar and make that key solely for the microphone icon. I'd rather talk than type.

        The 'comma' is already available on the "123" keypad and is seldom used. Users shouldn't have to long-hold a key to activate the microphone. When circumstances allow, I'd rather talk than type. Otherwise Swiftkey is the perfect input choice for my Samsung Galaxy Note 2

            • there should be some flow way to insert capital letters in stead of pressing key. 

              I have been using swype earlier. Therefore I am using your flow feature. 

              there should be some flow way to insert capital letters in stead of pressing key. Like in swype, you swype from a letter above the keyboard it capitalises that letter

              • Greater use of Flow function

                Let us use the flow function in URL bars and Username fields. I can understand not letting it work in passwords (though I wish it would), but this is just annoying. It's one of the reasons I jump back to using Swype. For URL bars, allow the slashes and periods to immediately follow the Flowed word.

                • Swipe predictions to see more

                  When the word I want is not in the prediction bar I instinctively swipe it in order to see another set of predictions. It would be great if this actually worked!
                  This is especially useful when picking from a set of long words with different endings.

                  • A 'pause' button to temporarily disable all formatting and corrections

                    Occasionally you just need SwiftKey to ignore the next thing you write or just while you finish with whatever it is you're writing. Sometimes you want different spellings or formatting that you don't want corrected or learned from.

                    • Typing improvement

                      Rather than long pressing a key to enter a special character or a number, It would be better if one could enter a number by just swiping up. Also, to capitalise a letter, it would be more easy by just swiping down the letter. In short, swipe up for special characters /numbers and swipe down to capitalise.

                          • Include lots more symbols

                            Other keyboards have much larger banks of symbols to choose from.
                            Many people like to use symbols like circles k hollow & filled) ; squares; hearts and vertical lines in their texting and profiles etc. which usually come under an additional button but SwiftKey doesn't seem to have anything like that. This is a big disappointment!
