      • SwiftKey keyboard doesn't change to small letters automatically at email address or password field.

        Just about every keyboard reverts to small letters automatically at email address fields and also at password fields but SwiftKey doesn't. Can youfix that? Also, try typing this exact message in this field and you will realize that you can't insert a space between you and fix.

        • Quick erase in flow

          We know how the quick option like quick erase (swiping left) is deactivated when using flow. But what about if this option was available when swiping from the erase button?

          Also, it would be good to allow us to hide the keyboard in some other way as with flow is not possible by swiping down.

            • disable the space after a point only if i start the word with www. untill i set a space by myself

              would it be possible to disable the space after a point if i start the word with www. untill i set a space by myself? That way we would still have the same experience at the end of a sentence but if we want to type a link, we woudnt get any spaces after the www or before the domain... nice idea, isnt it? ;)

                • Remove comma from period box

                  As there is already a dedicated comma key to the left of the space bar, it would be great if you could remove it from the box that pops up when you long-press the period key. That , I won't keep accidentally select the comma when I intend to pick an exclamation or question mark.

                      • Please automatically delete space before colons and semicolons (like with periods and commas). Please?

                        Could you please make colons and semicolons automatically delete the space before it? I have not seen a time where either mark should ever have a space before it. I otherwise adore using SwiftKey. If you can do it with periods, commas, and question marks, I have to believe it can be done with these marks as well.

                        Please and thanks googogs and bunches!

                        • Windows 8 version

                          Hello, I'm an Android used since way back (Paid money for the app and was happy to do so).
                          I was wondering... Do you plan on getting a Windows 8 version out anytime soon? (or 8.1 ... but not phone.. windows 8 PC)
                          That would blow the market away :)
                          I'd pay a few bucks for it easy! (not like 1000000$ bucks, but you know.. a handful ^_^)
                          So... any plans for it?
                          Please DO reply.
                          Thank you,
                          TripleEYE.

                          • [SPACEBAR] moved to the right.

                            I think as screens for phones have gotten bigger, the stretch distance for the thumb to the spacebar has also been increased.

                            I imagine I'm not the only person who drops his right thumb down to hit the space and hit the period quite often. a simple fix would be to move the spacebar to the right.

                            The best way to accomplish this would be to have a toggle option to make the "enter" key function a long press on the spacebar and to move the emojis into a long press function on the shift key.

                            it could also be…

                                • Add option to put the period/fullstop key on the left next to the comma - I always hit the period key accidentally

                                  Like many others on this forum, I am regularly accidentally typing a period when i mean to push the space bar.

                                  I assume I have the "longer space bar" referred to here since that is an old ticket (http://support.swiftkey.net/forums/116689-ideas-and-suggestions/suggestions/2035377-make-the-spacebar-longer?page=1&per_page=20) but that hasnt helped me much.

                                  A simple option in the Layout menu to put the period on the left of the keyboard would solve the problem for me because i almost always use my right thumb to do a space.

                                    • keyboard configuration

                                      can you create a way for people to literally customize their keywords, meaning decide where to add the space bar or move the letters and numbers in a way that can make it faster to type? that way everyone can customize any number of ways and still have the opportunity to purchase the background or color of the keyboard. just a suggestion. thanks.
