      • 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!

        • Button to access my samsung clipboard! Now I can't access it and that's a big dealbreaker!

          All (or at least the higher end) samsung devices have a clipboard menu on which all previously copied text or pictures are saved. On the stock Samsung keyboard we can access it by a long presss on a button left of the space bar, then some other buttons pop up like voice input, some other things and the clipboard button. With SwiftKey i lost this functionality which is kind of a dealbreaker. Please also add a similar clipboard experience to SwiftKey.

          • let the mobile listen during typing process

            Let the mobile listen to the user during the typing, so the device will detect the word from the user by two ways from keybord and microphone each process compleat each other so user could print easyer and faster, also there is no need for auto correction becouse the devise will take the text from two input way to have more accurate text free of mistakes and more faster than before.

            • Manually set currency (over Locale)

              I've just read your useful article about changing the system locale to get shortcuts for the right currency and so on

              However, my build only shows a general "English" option as system language which seems to be obvious localised for the US

              Since Android is an OS existing in various different builds for different devices, I'd suggest to add a simple option to override the system locale and to follow SwiftKey's language selection instead, ie: English (UK) - > £

              Or let the user decide what currency to use as favourite. That might be helpful for the Irish, as they…

                • Enable fast and direct access to „?“ and „!“ by long press on “,” and “.” without to glide in subsequent dialog

                  Current preselection of “.” after long press on “.” is redundant, as the “.” can be selected directly! Also there is no reason for the “,” in this subsequent dialog (can also be selected directly). Long press of “,” is actually not used. That’s why long press on “,” and “.” could serve to directly access “?” and “!” by preselection and thus improve efficiency.

                  • 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.

                    • Clipboard option on galaxy series

                      Hi SwiftKey, on behalf of over 20 of my Co workers&all of my family, can we pls have a option to use our clipboard on the galaxy S series? There's room on the settings tab for that option or even some type of plug in, but I utilized my clip board heavily from poetry to business and my Co workers and I love the product you offer but have to switch back and forth to different keyboards to easily text copy and paste time sheets, memos etc. Once again I love you guys but that's one thing that makes me…

                          • Insert a key, which inserts a often used emailadress. :)

                            I often have to write my own emailadress at the login on webpages.
                            It would be nice, if there would be a special key, which inserts the email, that is saved for the key.

                                • A suggestion mode quick toggle

                                  Have a dedicated button on the keyboard that toggles on and off suggests. Some phrases are just impossible/extremely difficult to type with suggestions always on, like typing "google.com" will normally become "Google. Com" without some tedious editing. Also some fields don't disable suggestions automatically, most often email being the worst. As I feel there's no good predictive way to eliminate all the need for no-suggestion typing, I think a manual toggle would be the way to go.

                                        • Update the Holo theme with white text to match Android 4.4

                                          Along with Android 4.4 came the updated Google Keyboard, and I just think the Holo theme for SwiftKey should be updated with white text instead of blue to match the new design. I would start using the theme if it was like that, I love the color in the new Google Keyboard
