  1. Suggested words

    By mistake I constantly press the suggested words instead of typing letters on the first row of the keyboard. You should separate them a little more or add the ability of remove them. Everything else is just great. But just for this I turn back to the Samsung default. Improve it please.

    • Bring back Manual prediction learning.

      I have no interest in posting everything I have ever said in texts in a compiled form to Google plus. In this new update, I have not the button in settings to manually initiate prediction learning. Bring it back! Not everyone likes Google plus clouds.

              • Never allow auto insertion to add the opposite meaning. Right now if I type do, don't is automatically inserted.

                When I type "do" and then space, "don't" is inserted. There should probably be a hard rule to prevent "n't" ending words from being an option until the n is typed.

                  • Theme

                    Hello,

                    I just wanted to say that I would really really really love to see more black clean themes. I don't like that I can see every shortcut on every key on my keyboard, a new clean keyboard would be much appreciated. Great keyboard by the way, really the best keyboard out there!

                          • Use clicking on the top half of the display as space!

                            Wouldnt that be much faster and better?

                            So it would be much easier to press above the suggestions, since you already move your finger towards them after typing the word, to act as if you pressed the space bar.

                            I am sick of the thousand times i pressed the space button and since it is directly above the homescreen button, you sometimes get back to homescreen.

                            Vote up please and have fun :)

                            • Have option for predicted word placement

                              When I'm working on the tablet with split keyboard mode, sometimes it is difficult to reach the predicted word in the center of the three words. I think it would be neat if you could have the option to have the number one predicted word on either side so I can reach it easier with my thumbs. It would make my typing faster.

                              • Enable multi-language spell-check.

                                Spell-check only checks for words from one dictionary, but I would like it to be able to check from more than one.

                                I use English and German equally often. SwiftKey provides great word suggestions in my two enabled languages while typing but then underlines all the words that aren't in the English dictionary in red.

                                • Increase the size of alternate (long-press) symbols

                                  When using small key height portrait mode, the alternate symbols (what you get when long-pressing) are very tiny. I can see them, but particularly the asterisk, quotes, dashes and colons cause me to squint. This is especially headache-inducing with the gray-on-gray themes.

                                  I also keep getting underscore confused with dash because it's much tinier and my eye is drawn to the larger underscore.

                                  I suggest shifting the primary symbol slightly to the lower-left to make more room for the alternate symbol in the upper right.

                                    • No automatic space insertion after a prediction is selected by the user

                                      For languages like Turkish where slibles are added at the end of each word there should be an option for no automatic insertion of space after a prediction has been selected.

                                      Example:

                                      Word in mind is 'asdfgh'
                                      After the prediction of 'asdf' is selected I want to continue typing 'gh' without the need of deleting the inserted space with backspace first.

                                      • Remove emoticon button and make punctuation button bigger.

                                        Emoticon button should be completely optional hence freeing space for bigger space and punctuation buttons.

                                        • Different order for special characters

                                          Currently the order for special characters (such as @ąăåäãâáà) don't follow the order of most used for the language that the keyboard was set. Ex for languages that came from Latin (French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, etc) the most used ones are the last characters. This order may work for Swedish, Norwegian, but in other languages it may follow the pattern of each language.
