  1. Hold down on a predicted word to get more options

    I'd love the option to be able to hold down on a predicted word to get the full range of options for endings to that word. So many times I'll get two or even three options and none will be the one I want... eg. If you get the word bike as a prediction, you could hold down on it to get a drop down of bikes, biked, biking, biker etc. That would be ace.

      • Be more like ginger

        Ginger Keyboard + Page has quick dial options for correct grammar and spelling as well as definitions translations and much more I paid like 5.99 for swiftkey but when I saw it I liked it so I downloaded it and it's awesome but there only downfall is that your keyboards are definitely faster and have better self correct settings so I did delete it and keep you guys but you guys need to step your game up before they do that's all I'm saying

        • Marvel Comic Edition Theme Pack

          It would be amazing if you made a Marvel Comic Edition Pack. Which the themes were the colors of the superheroes. For Example a blue, and black theme for Spider-Man.

            • Please make colons and semicolons move like

              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!

              • Don't destroy comments/ideas when merging with others

                When a user posts an idea and it is merged with a "simalar" idea, it appears you delete the "merged" comment/idea.

                I checked. Everything I wrote appears to have simply vanished, even though I included several suggestions that were not in the "idea" you chose to "merge" mine into. Nothing appears under "my comments" nor "my ideas" nor in the list of comments in the prevailing "idea". This is both counter productive ans insulting. At the least, you could include the user's "idea" as a new comment under the "similar" idea that you "merged" it into.

                Obliterating it is not…

                    • Swift Key constantly changes words that I type.

                      Girl's name 'JILL' keeps being changed to KILL.

                      Dictation time is only a second or two. There is NO available time control. Terrible!~!!!!

                      • Emoji predictions: publish a list of the words corresponding to each emoji symbol

                        When "Emoji Predictions is turned on in the Settings, and one types certain words, an emoji representing it is shown in the Predictions Bar. For example, type "car" to get a car-symbol emoji, or "plane" to get an airliner-emoji.

                        It would be great if the Swiftkey team could publish, on their website, a list of all the words which result in a emoji being shown in the word predictions bar.

                        That way, we would look up and learn which words we need to type to quickly get to the emoji we want to use.

                        • Option to make "Hold backspace" or "swipe left" delete only the last word when a multiple-word prediction was selected

                          Hi. When typing fast I got used to choosing a two word prediction where only the first word is correct, then swiping left to delete the last (wrong) word and keep typing. Now swiping left deletes the whole two-word prediction. This should be user-configurable.

                          • Change size of each key according to user heatmap

                            Under "user statistic" a heatmap could be generated in order to see which buttons are pressed in what accuracy.
                            The idea is to implement an personalised keyboard which changes the sizes of the buttons according to the heatmap.
                            So for example if the button "x" is your weak button it should appear bigger on the keyboard and so on...

                                  If there was a keayboard input method like ation keyboard for indic languages. Like kannada (like translation keyboard in 'indic keyboard' app from swatantra malayalam) it would be easier for typing.

                                  • Turn prediction off for specific apps

                                    It would be great to be able to turn predictions off for specific applications. When entering names into Contacts, the prediction makes it difficult. Same thing with URLs in Chrome. It would make sense that this would be an advanced setting.

                                      • LARGER button spacing

                                        This might be best accomplished as a purchasable theme. I find the buttons appear cluttered sometimes. Especially with a bigger phone, some added padding between the buttons would give the illusion of space, making it easier to eyeball your next button push.

                                        I know not everyone will be a fan of this, hence why I suggested this might be best as simply an add on theme. That simply has the illussion of space, which I believe is all that is needed.

                                        I think this could be a toggle just like adjusting the height of buttons is currently an option.

                                        • Number row quick toggle

                                          I wish there was a way to quickly toggle the number row off and on without having to dive into the settings menu.
