    • 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

      • Let backspace key to undo the last prediction, just like in Google Keyboard

        The title is quite self explanatory. I think that one of the best functions of Google Keyboard is that you can undo the predictions when writing with a simple press of the backspace key. SwiftKey should really add it.

        • 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!

          • Idea - date - time? Visual status =?

            I'm distracted to read ideas by the lack of date and time. If only the age and actuality of it wld have a colour or shape to recognise it status, wld raise commu-quality. Am i dismissing something mobile?

            • Guard against input frm apps used for tracking

              Got autosuggest recently, clearly originating from app Google Opinion Rewards - results (!), though NOT connected to SwiftKey cloud, can you prevent swiftkey from being misused by this tracking lookalike behavior?

              • Missing feat.to delete right-frm-crsr chars

                On correction by autosuggest, swiftkey leaves surplus char(s) which need deleted (partly or all). So why this rightchar-del function is not present like in more sophisticated editors? Saves a lot of time!

                  • Never let SwiftKey autocorrect. Never override what the writer wrote. Put what the writer wrote in the middle rather than on the side.

                    Do not let SwiftKey place a word that you didn't specifically select. In other words, suggest corrections but never execute them without being prompted. It's like the apple keyboard and totally sucks. So much nonsense inadvertently gets written. Plus, put the recommendations on the side and the actually written word in the centre where the writer can easily see if he's made a mistake.

                      • Japanese Beta-Keyboard for Upcoming iOS 8 Users

                        Because Android currently has a beta option for Japanese, I'd like to see iOS 8 users (like myself) to have a beta option in the nearby future as well.

                          • 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!

                            • Using flow and caps lock.

                              As in the Samsung swipe text... Once a word gets suggested not using predictive text... If u want to delete that word.. U need to press backspace once... With swiftkey u need to delete it in a longer method... This needs to be shortened.

                              Also caps lock button.. It is not very clear that what would be caps when u start typing... The next alphabet or next whole word.. It needs to have 3 levels of lighting like in the built in keyboard of android

                              All else is fine with swiftkey... The multipurpose alternate keys are a life saver... Is…

                              • 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.

                                  • 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,…

                                        • 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
