      • Display the emoji list with matching theme colours

        Since emoji have been added to Swiftkey, they have been displayed on the same default gray/black background.

        I think the list should be displayed on a background matching the current theme.

        • Allow to gift themes from the store

          Most of my friends don't have credit card in their account or hate paid things.. I would like to gift beautiful swiftkey themes to them, but it seems it's currently not possible.

          • Remove capital letter when separating two words

            When two words written together is separated by Swiftkey (e.g. donot --> do not), a capital letter is always proposed for the first word (e.g. Do not). 9 times out of 10 this means I have to go back and rewrite the two words again since it is not the beginning of a sentence. Please remove this feature. Alternatively, activate it only when you have actually pressed shift to make it a capital letter yourself.

            I have only tried this in Swedish.

              • Have a Gmail. Com butyin

                Have an option to set an email button so you can insert a default email, which is customisable, whenever you want. Also, recognise, in forms etc, what type of text box you're using and automatically change between text and numerical input.

                      • Enable 'slide delete' in Flow mode by swiping backwards on the space bar

                        'Slide to delete' is the only reason I don't use Flow mode. I've tried multiple times to use it, but the need for slide delete is too great.

                        I've played around with flow for a bit and the best way I can see to keep this feature enabled (whilst in Flow) is to allow the gesture to be used if you swipe to the left on the space bar.

                        The space bar has a large enough surface area to pick up the gesture without interfering with the rest of the keyboard. The feature would compliment the fast nature of flow…

                        • 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.

                              • 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.

                                  • 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.

                                      • ROLL BACK TO THE TRIAL VERSION.

                                        Everytime you update the Swiftkey gets worst now its auto selecting the wrong word! ROLL BACK TO THE TRIAL VERSION.
