    System for move the cursor whit the swipe of the the keyboard like in in the Samsung Samsung stock keyboard.

    If you think it will be in conflict whit the flow system is obvious it will be fix with a simple option in settings or with another smarter way.

    At last but not list I think it will be very popular if you improve a system for manage clipboards like in samsung stock keyboard. I know it will more complex than the other my idea. Buy I think it will be very appreciated and more important it will be a…

    • 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…

          • Delete or exclude place names from language packs.

            I would like if the language packs came with the option to exclude place names. I use UK English because I grew up with it and the spelling of American English gives me shudders. But I don't live in the UK and don't need the place names, which are cluttering up my keyboard and might also be dragging it down with more predictions. I would like to be able to get rid of them with one stroke.

              • Gestures for Space

                Swipe right removes the last word - why not add swipe left for complete word / space? Sounds logical to me and works well with Fleksy - that's what I'm missing in SwiftKey right now. Should be easy to make and I see no reason against it.

                • Emoji - Long press Enter key.

                  In: Settings>Layout one can choose the superfluous option, "Enter Key: Always long press for emoji." That seems to be the default anyway, even when that box is unchecked! I hate emoji and never use them. It would be great to have the option to turn that particular long-press function off completely.

                  • Program swiftkey to change theme depending on active app or time of day

                    For instance, using Facebook Messenger I could program swiftkey to use a light colored theme. When using my message app, a dark theme could be active . A default theme could be pre selected. Also, themes could switch depending the time of day. For instance, knowing that it gets dark after 8,swiftkey could auto switch the default theme to a less bright (predefined, of course) one. I think this would make the phone less dull and it it could also be a slight battery saver for amoled displays.

                    • Please provide the calculated result in suggestions. For example If i type 550+175 there should be suggestion 725.

                      Please provide the calculated result in suggestions. if i type number with some numerical signs. For example If i type 550+175 there should be suggestion 725. Really it will kill a lot of time which we are wasting in opening calculator.

                        Hi Swiftkey, how can user enable the symbol on some new added themes such as 'Spotlight Blue' theme?

                        • Android Style Emoji

                          I think that SwiftKey should use the Google emoji's built into the stock and google keyboard, hangouts, etc. they fit the theme much better than the iPhone ones.

                          • 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,…

                              • Current date and time on hotkey or suggestion

                                Create a button types current date only, time only or date and time in different formats (like DD.MM.YYYY or YYYY.MM.DD - it can be customizable in settings). Also it can be done by suggested words for auto-type. When I enter "02.09" it would be very useful to get suggestion "02.09.2014" and not only previously entered dates or times.

                                • 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…

                                  • Bring back learn from sms prediction from version 3.

                                    Please bring back the learn from sms feature you have on your version 3 of SwiftKey.I'm not getting accurate predictions on my native language which is Filipino most of the time. I'm not an active Facebook, Twitter, or email user on my cellphone. So predictions from these sites is not useful for persons or users like me. Most of the time I'm not online to sync your program on cloud. So I think if you'll bring back the learn from sms feature you have on your previous version, this would be perfect for users like me. Thank you

                                      • Autocorrecting

                                        Great app except I can't enter certain phrases without it correcting it incorrectly. For example, when trying to say .45 (handgun) or .38 Special (as in the band) It keeps moving the period away. Why? I'm typing it correctly. Stop changing it!

                                          I like the option of buying themes in packs to save money, but all of the packs come with themes that I really wouldn't want. At all. It would be really nice if you offered us to create our own theme pack by choosing a certain number of themes we want and getting a discount for buying them all at once.
