  1. Option to turn off emoji graphics

    The graphic emoji aren't useful when sending to non-Android devices. I'd like the option to turn these off and go back to old-fashioned emoji like :-) which work on any platform.

      • Delay for the 3 predictive words

        Have been using this Keyboard for months, hoping that one day this feature will be implemented, I will explain.

        The prediction and autocorrector is so awesome that right now most of my mistakes just come because of hitting the predictive words unintentionally when I'm not finished writing the word itself.

        Why please not add a delay when pressing the 3 top words, configurable or not of about 500ms or so. That way I will write almost perfectly.

        Thanks for your work

          • How about programming the software to reject mistakes that a typist has repeatedly corrected by back-deleting & then retyping.

            The choice most often typed in after the correction, could become the one that the software inserts automatically.

            • I need the swipe method to work for all websites like Quotev

              I want the swipe method to work for websites like Quotev or in other words, the swipe method to be universal so I can use it on every single website

              • Make an Apostrophe using a swipe on comma key

                SwiftKey needs a flow-worthy apostrophe key! If you're a Flow user, having to stop the flow to choose the correct option from the prediction/autocorrect bar severely impacts the efficiency of using Flow for words that can be spelled both with or without the apostrophe, i.e. dogs (plural) vs. dog's (possessive), or I'll (I will) vs. ill (sick), or we're (we are) vs. were.

                I suggest using the comma key, which doesn't currently have a flow-able action assigned to it anyway (touch for comma, touch and hold for voice typing) into an apostrophe when used during Flow typing. Simply swipe through…

                  • Auto-Correct "Undo" Button that Learns

                    There should be a button to undo an auto-correct. While helpful most of the time, auto-correct can be frustrating when it "corrects" a word into something the user doesn't want. Having a simple undo button would alleviate this frustration, and the software could learn that when auto-corrected text is followed by an undo, that specific auto-correct suggestion should not be used in the future.

                      • Long press and slide to select smiley

                        After long pressing the enter key (without releasing) sliding your finger to the desired smiley and releasing should select that emoticon. It appears this feature was lost in a recent update.

                            • create a SwiftKey personal clipboard button

                              why does SwiftKey doesn't have it own clipboard that can hold certain amount word which the user copy and paste, that can be accessed by a click of a button..
                              benefits of the clipboard :
                              1- ability to choose the word between the last copied words and paste it with a click of the button
                              2- quick access
                              3- creative idea for SwiftKey keyboard it will be the first keyboard which have this function

                              • Hold swipe to delete multiple words.

                                I just switched back to SwiftKey after being on fleksy for a few months and I miss some of the gestures like being able to hold a left swipe to keep deleting words until you let go. I also miss the ability to swipe up to change the predicted word but maybe that's taking too much from fleksy.

                                • S-Pen / Handwriting Integration

                                  Integrate the S-Pen (or any other handwriting to text inputs) handwriting to text functionality into SwiftKey. This should include a means of activating handwriting input from the SwiftKey keyboard by either long-pressing a key in the same fashion that we are currently able to activate the voice input key on the comma button, or by toggling it via the dedicated SwiftKey settings button (or through some other genius SwiftKey way, you guys are awesome!). The integration of a stylus/handwriting input should obviously include SwiftKey's word prediction engine. PLEASE DO IT! IT WOULD BE AMAZING!

                                  • Add an option to bring back the enter (new line) key instead of the send message key

                                    With the newest version I really miss the enter key in many applications, could you add an option to replace the 'send' key with 'enter' or 'new line' key! The option should be for phone and Tablet layouts!

                                    • 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.

                                      • Allow more than 3 active language modules.

                                        I imagine this is a reasonably rare usage scenario but those of us who speak and communicate with 3+ languages would surely benefit from the option of having more than 3 active language modules. Thank you.
