    • Serbian cyrillic layout

      In current swiftkey there are several cyrillic layouts, Bulgarian, Russian, Macedonian etc.
      Serbian native alphabet is cyrillic, and it shouldn't be too hard to create Serbian cyrillic keyboard layout.
      Even converting words from the existing latin alphabet dictionary should be pretty easy and straight forward.
      I understand that there might not be too many Serbian users but at the same time it should not take too much of your time.
      I would offer my help too if you need it!

      I really appreciate your help and all of the effort the whole team has put into developing this keyboard app,…

      • Quickly toggle Flow

        I love tap-typing on SwiftKey, and one of the most defining features that I pretty much can no longer live without is the gesture to backspace an entire word by swiping to the left. However, when I only have one hand available, I find Flow to be very useful as well, but activating Flow disables the backspace gesture. I would like to suggest that there be a quick toggle on the keyboard, or maybe even better if there was one at least in the small settings menu that appears when holding down the "123"/Swiftkey logo key rather than having to…

          • Save usage stats to the cloud

            One of the unique things about SwiftKey is being able to see how the app has assisted the user via the usage stats. It can be quite addictive, seeing how the app has helped over time, but when the time inevitably comes to upgrade the phone, the app must be downloaded again and the stats reset to zero. It would be nice to restore your latest stats from the cloud, and continue to see just how invaluable SwiftKey really is.

              • Quick Voice Dictation

                Checkout this UX video I made on how swipe gestures with the spacebar could enable better voice dictation integration. http://www.wideo.co/view/4131211404379659760

                Swipe up on spacebar and release to trigger voice dictation mode. Swipe up and hold to dictate, and release or swipe down to stop dictating.

                If you're in dictation mode, allow me to press and hold the mic button vs tapping so that I can dictate in small bursts allowing me to collect my thoughts and put together sentences or instructions in a more natural manner.

                  • Night theme option that switches automatically

                    Would be very nice to have an option to choose a dark theme to switch automatically at night. It's become very popular to have apps and dialers that change themes after dark automatically. My sms, email and dialer all change to night mode and I would love it if my keyboard also switched to night mode. It would complete the night time theme change. BTW, I have been using SwiftKey long before it became free. Thank you for your consideration.

                    • A "no prediction or autocorrect" switch

                      Typing urls or specific code with autocorrect is a nightmare. In some apps SwiftKey will insert the correction as soon as you lift your finger making editing impossible. This isn't a new problem there are old requests on here and it's my biggest complaint, I can switch to another keyboard but then why switch back to SwiftKey?

                      • Maybe I've just overlooked it, but how about changing the emojis to iPhone format. Makes things a lot easier!

                        Be able to have the option to change the Android style emojis to Apple style emojis.

                            • Randomized themes

                              Now that you guys in swiftkey 5 have a store where we can buy themes (and now there will be MUCH more new users since the app is free!!) maybe it will be nice of themes can be randomized and change every week/even hour! That way people don't just stay on one theme as I know I and a lot of other people will do. It will make swiftkey fresh and interesting and make themes more important

                                  • Free and paid themes without mandatory cloud usage

                                    Let paying customers use the free or paid themes without mandatory cloud usage. It is a shifty way to push people towards login into your cloud service. SwiftKey isn't very lightweight to begin with and some users don't like to have everything they type analysed by yet another entity.

                                    • 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…

                                        • Changing emoji fonts?

                                          Despite having an Android phone, I hate the Android emoji fonts package! Can we have the option to use :-) again or even have other font packages available like IOS or WhatsApp fonts........
