  1. disable auto space after dot (.) like in email, account login.

    disable auto space after dot (.) like in email, account login. I don't see any option for this. It's really annoying when type email address or login account.

      • Japanese, Romanji, Hiragana & Katakana keyboard

        Seriously these are very basic keyboards that should be included before you get round to doing Sudanese or Tagalog... Oh you already have Tagalog and Sundanese I'm sure the market is huge for that. Meanwhile approx. 30Million japanese people are using Android... even if 1% of them would like an interchangable keyboard that's a lot. I really like you keyboard but I have been waiting almost a year now for a japanese extension to this great platform... I reckon I have another months worth of patience and then I am moving on... Good luck : )

          • Remember username and / or login / email addresses for common websites, example - Gmail, yahoo, Facebook, xfinity, wallet, etc.

            It would be a lot easier if SwiftKey would remember usernames for the most commonly used websites, it is tedious to type it in every time.

            • Enter key and Back Space key too close

              Most of my auto correct accidents happen when I wrongly tap the Enter key instead of the Back Space. Would be nice to have the two separated.

                • Warn people before updates so they can choose

                  Warn people BEFORE you change/break a successful product that is meeting their needs. I wanted the arrow keys on the main keyboard and the extended keyboard setting does not change anything on my Nexus 7. So your change broke my keyboard. :-(

                  • It would be nice to be able to close the keyboard with a swipe down even though flow is enabled? t

                    Adding a way to close the keyboard when one is done typing. Swipe will not work if flow is enabled. I'm getting a lil tired of always going back to the back button just to remove the keyboard.

                      • Quotation Marks

                        Quotation marks do not auto format to the ways one uses them. "this sentence doesn't capitalize the first word, right?" and it often doesn't finish them out properly.

                        • Easier, quicker and single handed way to switch to compact mode.

                          If you are using a big phone like the Note 2, it is really difficult to switch to the compact right hand mode using only the right hand. Please add a method to do this. For example, sliding left/right from the space bar or the comma key. Thanks.

                          • Gesture enable compact keyboard

                            Since the compact mode is designed to be used with one hand it would be nice to be able to enable it with one hand; like with a button or a gesture. I'm mostly a two-thumb typist, but sometimes have to type one hand if I'm in a rush or holding something. Being able to switch to compact mode and back quickly with one hand would be ideal.
