    • Mayor velocidad y fluidez

      Sugiero mayor velocidad, actualmente escribimos un mensaje y le damos al enviar y está enviandose el mensaje que empezamos a escribir uno de nuevo, y tarda en salir el teclado en pantalla o sale el teclado pero los primeros caracteres no los pulsa. Yo quisiera poder chatear vía Line, Hangout, etc con fluidez y rapidez.... No tener que esperarme unos milisegundos hasta que el teclado pueda reconocer los caracteres que pulso. Escribo desde un Samsung Galaxy S4

      • Backspace/delete after a word is Autocorrected re-engages all correct charcters

        When typing Swift sometimes Autocorrect single misspelt words into multiple words. For instance when typing Autocorrected for the first time it typed Autocorrect Ed. When I back space to Ed it doesn't select all the characters of Autocorrected, just the final word. Once Swift changes a word, backpacking immediately should reselect everything to change the entire word, rather than having to delete the entire phrase and starting again.

          • After adding word to dictionary, ensure it is in the autocomplete list

            e.g., add Clingan (proper name), still autocompletes only "Cling an" and others.

            • Allow easy changes to capitalization of words, and autocompletions

              It is not easy to get the title-case of the _non_ default autocomplete suggestion, or to get ALLCAPS. It is very common when writing to type first, then fix capitalization later: good editors provide this. SwiftKey is basically the editor on a smartphone/tablet.

                • Add an option to choose the article

                  My main language is a dialect of catalan and I use different article.

                  In standard catalan the article is "el/la/l'", but in the dialect is "es/sa/s'".

                  When I want to write something like S'administrador in seat of l'administrador I have to make very effort, because the correction writes d'administrador.

                  Can be possible add an option to set "my article"?

                  • Improve integration with the web version of Facebook

                    The SwiftKey and Facebook integration is buggy. I suspect that this is because of Facebook rather than Swiftkey, but it's more likely that Swiftkey will update their settings. On the mobile web browser interface the text typing within Facebook is extremely slow. The predictions show up correctly, but spaces are randomly added to the typed in text, then mangling all the auto-predictions. I'm using Dolphin Browser and Samsung Galaxy S3 android version v4.1.2 (the latest edition available for my phone).

                    • option to unlink a personalization account

                      For example, if when I installed and personalized SwiftKey, I gave it access to my Gmail, Facebook and Twitter, but I realized I no longer wanted SwiftKey to learn from Gmail, I should be able to undo this easily.

                      Perhaps, some sort of button that allows me unlink this account.

                          • Make it easier to use Apostrophesfor Contractions and possessive words

                            I have updated the language a hundred times, but it does nothing to make SwiftKey Flow recognize the word "wasn't". I've tried W A S N T, W A S N V T (because V is where the Apostrophe is) and W A S N (punctuation key) T... I'd think one of these methods should work, but 99%of the time it puts "want" other times it puts some non-word like "wa nnt.nt". Is there some tutorial I missed or something? If this is the norm, SwiftKey needs to fix it.

                              • Sometimes the predictions that I have entered manually, gets erased and can't be restored.

                                It would be useful if the restore option on the cloud could be backup and restored manually, for example to restore the backup if it gets erased for any reason.

                                • Add option to display full arrows on the keyboard, specially the split thumbs version (like the Thumb Keyboard app).

                                  There is a lot of space in the split thumbs version, in the middle, which would be better used for 4 directions arrows keys. Also, we should be able to add the arrow keys to all layouts. I was using Thumb Keyboard app, but word prediction of SwiftKey is the best - the only missing feature for me is a full 4 direction arrows keys.

                                    • eigenes wörterbuch bearbeiten

                                      Es wäre gut wenn man das eigene wörterbuch bearbeiten könnte und alle selbst eingegebenen Wörtern sehen kann und diese dann auch einzeln löschen kann.
                                      Und es wäre gut wenn ihr die buchstaben auf der tastatur etwas dicker machen könntet so wie es bei samsung android 2.3.6 bei der originalen tastatur ist, weil das kann man dann besser erkennen.

                                        • добавьте смайлики...

                                          такой шикарной клавиатуре не хватает смайликов различных (вот бы вам смайликов как на стандартной клавиатуре Samsung galaxy note3)
