  1. 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.

            • Desplazamiento entre celdas en una planilla

              Se podría incluirá tecla de tabulador (tab) para pasar a la celda de la derecha, y determinar que, luego de fijar la tecla de mayúsculas (dos pulsaciones y queda celeste), la tecla tabulador sirva para desplazarse a la celda de la izquierda y la tecla "enter" sirva para desplazarse a la celda superior.

              • 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!

                    • I do not like the keyboard layout changes. I paid for this app. How can I fix it?

                      I used to be able to long press on a key to make a less than symbol. I text my girlfriend more frequently than anyone else, and I tend to use emoticons when I do so. The less than symbol is used to make a heart <3, which is not included in the list presented with the long press of the enter key. When I text, I am usually in a hurry. I HATE that I have to go through two sets of letters/numbers/symbols before I arrive at the one I'm looking for. I paid for this app too, and…

                          • Remap question mark key

                            The keyboard is near perfect for me with one glaring exception... The punctuation key to the right of the space bar. I have a htc one, where the home key is literally right under that punctuation key in SwiftKey. I use the question mark probably over 90% of the time, so I have to long press then swipe up to get to it on the main keyboard. This motion happens to be exactly the same as the trigger for Google Now. I am finding myself accidentally triggering google now probably 25% of the time, which is super annoying.

                            This can…

                            • Custom Keyboard/ Phonetic?

                              I and countless people I know, use the English keyboard to write in other languages.

                              i use it to write arabic with english letters. The problem, is that these words then get mixed up into the first English keyboard. Could you add a way to have seperate dictionaries based on a language pack or such? for example, there could be English (UK) in addition to English ('Customname')

                              Thanks in advance

                              • Position de è et surtout é sur le clavier français

                                En français les lettres é et è sont très utilisées. Pourquoi les positionner à chaque extrémité de la liste de choix ?
                                Je suggère qu'en maintenant la touche e, on obtienne :
                                êè3éë
                                En français ěęė n'existent pas, à ma connaissance.

                                • The #1 improvement you could make is: if I type in a word twice in succession, stop trying to change it!

                                  Swift key seems completely oblivious to user intent. If it subs in a different word from the one I was typing and I then backspace away that word and retype my original word, swift key should grasp the fact that I really wanted my word, not swift key's!

                                  • Personally created dictionary

                                    As the title suggest, and I would love to have a blank dictionary as it will be created solely from my typing habit. I don't prefer full text while texting among my colleague as it will make me somewhat like an old guy.

                                    As for the side note this would be great for other languages too because it's blank dictionary and it will be filled by your own as the more you use it.

                                    • Make use empty space in compact docked mode on a tablet.

                                      On my 10" tablet, SwiftKey is great in the docked compact mode on the right side. It lets me shape write comfortably with my thumb.

                                      But two this off the screen to the side of the keyboard is blank. Let me put modules of keyboard modes there. Eg: a number pad, Arrow keys, extended symbols. Anything I have to currently mode switch between now.

                                        • I would like to have a single arrow key that takes the place of the 4 keys I use now. Like the punctuation key but vertical too.

                                          Lose 3 keys but have quicker and more intuitive input. I notice when I switch from holding the phone to horizontally the arrow keys are rearranged. So I have this idea. What if there was only one key for moving horizontally and vertically and it remained in the lower right corner all the time. To use it just touch and swipe in the direction you want to move the cursor! Sorta like swiping the punctuation key now.
