      • Update Android's Nickel Dark Theme to Match the iOS Release

        With the release of SwiftKey on iOS 8, I see screenshots of a new Nickel Dark theme. But the one on Android doesn't have the same bevel, icons, or spacing. When will this updated theme be available for use on Android?

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

            Hi. I use SwiftKey since the beginning, I liked most of the new features that were added over time and got used to them. My hands are big and I prefer small phones, so I choose most words from the prediction bar. I also prefer using the smaller keyboard size, so it uses less space on the screen.
            When the multiple-word prediction was added to SwiftKey, I started to use this behaviour: Let's say I want to write "staying free", I aim to tap the prediction for "staying" but I fail (let's say I tapped a letter instead), then keep…

            • Predictions include number row

              I have the number row on top of my keyboard, but if I accidentally hit, say, '5', SwiftKey won't suggest words starting with the letters below ('t', 'y' in my case on a Swedish layout).

              It's quite annoying and I hope that it is possible to make SwiftKey able to suggest words when a number is typed first in a word :)

              • A setting for Flow to adjust word prediction accuracy for either speed or precision.

                Insert a setting for "Flow" that is similar to "Swype" that allows an adjustment for word prediction accuracy based on a user's preference to be fast or precise. I prefer to be fast, but the accuracy is too high and causes large undesirable words to appear in place of simpler more common words I was trying to type.

                • 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

                  • Auto suggest the current date

                    When I begin type what I know will be date e.g. "20" use one of the prediction slots for current date "2014-09-11".
                    Obviously consult local format, which would have to consider 11/09/2014 if I was to type 11, or American 09/11/2014.

                    Also don't remember previous dates, unhelpful in my experience.

                    • 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.

                        • 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!

                                To make typing faster, enable adjustable sensitivity gesture swiping that was included in the previous versions. It would allow people to customize their senility to their own personal likings as well and habits.

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • Caps Lock Behavior Update

                                        I don't know if this is a feature of Swiftkey (it feels more like a bug to me) but the behavior for Caps Lock is weird.

                                        On other keyboards, double tapping the Shift Key rapidly will enter Caps Lock Mode, however, if you tap Shift, or already in AutoCaps, and a second or so has passed then tapping shift again returns to lowercase.

                                        This isn't the case for SwiftKey. No matter what, tapping Shift twice will enter Caps Lock Mode. This is a really annoying behavior especially since I like AutoCaps but sometimes (less often than not) I'll lowercase my…
