        • 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

          • Handwriting for necessary languages such as japanese chinese

            handwriting is pretty general and is a convenience for many asian languages, but there is no reason to not include it for any other language. perhaps as an additional on/off feature?

            • Keyboard font size

              Hi.
              Would you please put a part in swiftkey settings to change keyboard font and font-size? The keyboard font size is so small for people that have vision weakness.

              Thank you in advance.
              my email: sraminz@yahoo.com
              My name: Ramin

              • Bring Back Punctuation Prediction!

                +1 on punctuation predictions. I miss this feature immensely after v4 (I believe); it literally saved me seconds off each message I sent. It's especially helpful not having to hold and slide for punctuation when you're moving, walking, exercising, in the passenger seat of a car - basically in any environment/situation where the phone is not being held stably.

                So Swiftkey team, please bring this awesome feature back!

                • Fix minimal themes layout!

                  When using the new minimal themes, the separation in between the top letters and the predictions is too extreme. I think it is caused because even though you made the special characters transparent (or hid them), you still left the space they occupy on each key...why not center the characters and/or make them bigger so they occupy more space of each key. Thanks for this awesome update!

                  • Set Flow prediction to used previously used user words trump new ones. IMPORTANT.

                    Flow prediction seems to use English dictionary words over the ones that were used previously. Please make the user words trump new ones at 70% of the time. This is the one thing holding Flow back from being hands down the absolute best compared to Googles keyboard on the market.

                    • Minimal White keyboard

                      You should create a new themes including a Minimal White keyboard. The Minimal Black is my favorite but I would like to have a Minimal White as well. Most other developers had designed one already, and I am waiting for you to design one as well. Thanks

                        • Disable emoji auto fill from symbols *IN SMS*.

                          I'm very happy emojis were added, however I don't like using them a lot.
                          If I type "<3" I want it to stay as text instead of auto filling to

                            If it would be helpful, you can disable “Emoji Prediction” in SwiftKey’s Advanced settings. Doing so will then prevent emoji from being offered in the prediction bar. At the present time, this setting isn’t app-specific.

                          • Emoji plugin to match iOS

                            Please create a plugin that gives SwiftKey iOS style emoji. There are tons of lesser keyboard apps that give this functionality, but SwiftKey doesn't? Outrageous!

                                  • 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.

                                        • let us choose to havs all the emoij or not. they slow the app down.

                                          The new 5.0 update is incredibly slow compared to before. Its especially seen and felt when switching to the ****** emoijs.

                                          Give an option to disable all this nonsense.
