    Hello, I have a problem:

    on Nexus 4, when I use the mail apps (gmail, or corporate), I have two languages installed: Hebrew and English. When I try to write a mail or forward one, when I touch the "To" field, the hebrew keyboard pops up with no option to move to english! It's cut - only letters, no space bar or settings buttons I usually see.

    what can I do?

    • Lower the price

      Way too much consuming this app is comparable to Swype (.$99) and TouchPal (free).

      • Cant we just choose the word instead of airways having to backspace to edit? Only one in four words are correct so I spend so much more time

        Omigod the hell i just went through ț to tow that heading! As usual the cutest flow back to the beginning, typed something illegible and wouldn't erase.

        • Add bottom bar

          I've just changed to a phone where the action keys are part of the screen and I am always accidentally clicking when typing. Why not simply give users the option to add a small border or bar at bottom (height configurable) of keyboard so that there is added distance between the space and the action buttons?

          • Starting a word with the punctuation letter while swyping only piss the word puts the punctuation

            If I swype words like monopoly, I occasionally slip and start with the punctuation button. When I do this it only puts the punctuation, rather than the word. Example : "words like! " is from me trying to type "words like monopoly".

              • Add prediction

                Please allow users to Add their predictions back after they've been removed. I accidentally removed 'ok' and now it's constantly suggesting 'OK'. I prefer it to constantly predict small caps ok instead.

                • . It drives me nuts that SwiftKey

                  I'd love to be able to manually add my name to the prediction library. It drives me nuts that SwiftKey doesn't recognise my name even though I keep selecting it in the prediction line. Especially while using flow it never recognises my name. Thanks

                    • Make the vibration happen at the same time you press the key. Not after the fact!

                      Make the vibration happen at the exact moment you press the keyboard key, not afterwards. As it is, it feels like a delayed reaction.

                      • Add Insert Button

                        Please add a (forced) Insert Button to Insert text from clipboard. Even though Android has a Insert by pressing long at one place, some apps and some websites (Facebook in Chrome for example) have disabled this option for whatever reason. It would be great if SwiftKey would have a insert key to override these user unfriendlynes. Would save a lot of typing... and that's what SwiftKey is about.

                        • Long press space to bypass word completion and option to disable space after dot punctiation.

                          I really like the word completition with space, it allows for very fast typing however sometimes it also prevents me from typing a word completely. Adding an option to long press space to avoid the completion would be nice (so we can avoid word completion for said word only and not disable the feature).

                          Typing URLs is a pain because of the space after the dot, please please add an option to disable this for the dot only. This feature is already served with double space anyways no?

                          Thanks, this would be amazing.

                                • Hello, I like the neon theme. It would be beautiful if there'd be a pink neon theme.

                                  It would be best if there'd be different kinds of keys and the colour could be chosen freely.

                                  • The last upgrade spoiled my experience with the SwiftKey in my tablet. Why to change such a perfect layout like the the previous? Pls undo!

                                    I'm definitely not happy with the last upgrade and I wish I could go back in my app version. Well... You can!
