  1. For the Farsi/Persian keyboard

    Hi. Please add a direct key for zero-width non-joiner (ZWNJ), encoded in unicode as U+200C. Like the one in Google-Keyboard. This key would be very useful to write the correct form of many words in Persian.

        • Grammar & spelling correction

          Hi that could be verry interesting to add a grammar and orthographic plugin like the keyboard Ginger Page (but only for English people and I'm French and many swiftkey's user are not english) or like the website scribens (grammar and orthographic corrector. Please add that and you'll become leader on the store ( I already get premium). Actually I use Swiftkey (learn more about our typo and better predict) and Kii better on some other way
          So please if you get this message please look about Scribens website and ginger page apk to add that on next update

          Thanks so…

            • The suggested word keeps replacing the typed one the last minute contributing to a lot of typos. This is unacceptable and should be fixed

              Suggested words should not auto replace the typed ones in any case, unless the predicted one is selected by pressing on it, because this is always leading to typos.

                • cursor jumping isnt just Samsung I have had on Samsung & Kyocera droid

                  The bug seems ro be with droid. I thought it was a virus, however I now believe it is some kind of memory overload. The problem goes away when resetting the phone but reappeared after typing very long text on web & got worse as I reinstalled more programs. Its irritating that the **** BLOAT WARE Can't be removed! Even those that have been discontinued.

                      • Option to change letter size

                        With some themes the letters apear to be too small and there is enough space to increase their size but there isn't any option for it(basic themes have bigger letters then the newer material). Would be nice if there would be a scale for only increasing letter size without changeing the whole layout size.

                        • Full Tasker support

                          Full Tasker integration could allow for changing themes according to the app it's used in, scheduled syncing with social networks and email accounts, manual backups, and even automatically entering text in certain fields. http://tasker.dinglisch.net/developers.html

                          • Better text field context awareness.

                            I love the auto correct capabilities of SwiftKey, including he space after a period, but I often find it very difficult to type url or host address names where it auto correct, the word before and puts a space. It maybe something can't be fixed based because it's based on the third party's application settings on the text field but definitely something to consider.

                                • Non Functional T9 numeric keypad.

                                  T9 style numeric keypad, does not need to be a functional T9 just have the letters so that I can enter numerical passwords that are based on words so 2743 would be bird, 786637 would be summer, etc. This makes remembering numerical passwords easier to enter and remember.

                                  • Make the compact and thumb keyboard not mask the screen when docked and undocked

                                    The compact and thumb keyboard layouts both mask the screen at the bottom as if the full keyboard is still there. Even happens when undocked. Don't know if it's just the xperia z this happens to, but it makes the compact keyboard kind of pointless.

                                      After typing on whatsapp and press enter, user have to wait about 1 sec to type a new word. It kind annoying because we have to wait on that moment. I am a user that use a rapid typing. Please fix this. Thanks

                                        • to have a landscape orientation

                                          for me i will suggest to have an automatic orientation just like if we go for landscape orientation the SwiftKey will go with it.
