    • 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 : )

      • Spaces between words should only appear when you start typing the next one

        When you use flow or touch a prediction it inserts the word and a space. Any other keyboard around, including stock Android and Swype do it differently: put spaces when you start typing the next word.
        This simple change would solve a lot a problems. Every time it autocompletes login username, you have to backspace to remove the extra space. Every time you end a phrase with some punctuation you have to backspace, so the phrase won't t have one extra character at the end.

        And well, it seems just obvious... You only need a space when you write something…

              • Heat map

                Really unhappy of late with key stroke accuracy which bogs up my predictions with incorrect suggestions.
                You have my heat map, it has a clear border for what I'm trying to hit. Can you not superimpose the heat map to improve my key stroke accuracy?

                      • 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.

                        • Add on/off setting for the 'double space' after commas & periods.

                          The auto insertion of the dbl space in counter-intuitive to all other keyboards. It always reqires corrections to be made before sending a text msg or email. Makes it a "not so Swift Keyboard"! Let ME decide if I want to use the feature or not.

                                  • 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 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. :-(
