  1. Swiping on the keyboard (start from say the Shift key and swipe right) to move cursor. Something like SwipeSelect in iOS.

    Instead on tapping exactly where I would like to edit, it would be so much more convenient if one could just tap anywhere, and when the cursor comes up, start from the Shift key and swipe right across the keyboard to move the cursor to the right and from the Backspace key to move the cursor left. A double tap and swipe could start text selection. Makes editing so much more simpler.

    • Keyboard crashing

      My keyboard keeps crashing, as in it will appear I whatever app I'm using it for, but no words will type. Clearing RAM and closing the app doesn't do anything, it just seems to start working again whenever it feels like.

          • I would very much like to be able to reduce the width of the keyboard when in landscape.

            Reduce the width of the keyboard in landscape mode so the swiping experience is the same as in portrait mode.

            • Tanglish

              Tanglish (Tamil: தங்கிலீஷ்) is a macaronic language of Tamil and English; the name is a portmanteau of the names of the two languages and is sometimes spelled "Tamglish”. - (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanglish) . Tamil is a major language spoken by majority of people in the southern part of India, Tanglish is a macaronic language used by Uber generation Indians, especially those who use mobiles. So swift key has a clear edge over it’s competitors if it can bring on Tanglish dictionary, just like it has brought ‘Hinglish’ dictionary.
              Let me know how I can be helpful to achieve this.

              • Faster number input

                Rather than wait for the press and hold to get a number in the standard keyboard, allow a press and upward swipe on the letter/nunnery keys on the top row.

                  • Poder modificar el tiempo que se ve la tecla ampliada al pulsar sobre ella.

                    La tecla se ve muy poco tiempo ampliada quedando la sensación de que no estas pulsando sobre la tecla.

                    • Instead of just small normal and large make an extra large size as

                      The large is a great size but if your like me and have big fingers even using the large setting on a galaxyS4 is still slightly too small. Make them a hair bigger and the caps and back keys slightly smaller and your already stellar app takes the cake.

                      • Add email as a savable word

                        When you use any punctuation the keyboard thinks the word before it is complete. It would be quite convenient if i could at least be able to save my email address as one word.

                            • Add a second 3 word row above predictions row with auto-correct options OR Add a button to cycle through auto-correct options of last word

                              So instead of just having one row of 3 words that are predictions of your next word, we should have the option to enable a second row of words that are options for the last auto-corrected or flowed word. This will be very helpful since I am constantly having to correct myself because using Flow, the wrong word is chosen a lot. This means I have to hit backspace and correct my previous word.

                              Also we can add a button that changes the last word typed to the second most likely prediction, then the third, and so on. This will…

                                    • The period(.) key when long press also has the comma(,) choice,but the comma has it own dedicated key. Period should have another choice.

                                      The long press of period key should have another choice instead of the comma since the comma has it own dedicated key.
