  1. 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!

    • Create custom theme pack

      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.

          • Change colors of alternate characn

            On the cobalt theme, the alternate character color on the keys should be the Teal color of the arrow buttons. It would make it easier to see them. Black is her to see.

            • Would like long-press enhancements for dedicated arrow keys

              For me, a longtime PC user, the most significant ABSENT keys on Swiftkey are the HOME/END keys which on a PC keyboard cause the cursor to move to one of four different locations depending on the application program running.

              These four "target locations" that the cursor is re-positioned to when HOME or END is pressed are (1) START OF CURRENT LINE (i.e. SOL), (2) END OF CURRENT LINE (i.e. EOL), (3) START/TOP first character OF DOCUMENT (i.e. SOD), or (4) END/BOTTOM last character OF DOCUMENT (i.e. EOD).

              Conceptually it seems the four dedicated arrow keys on the optional Swiftkey keyboard…

              • Stop predicting others' added names, cities, foreign and "popular" words that I've never used!

                I'm tired of having SwiftKey predict words such as "Raja", "oui", or the ridiculously unlikely "async_load" and "Aung" that just predicted while I was trying to SwiftKey this post.

                I understand that SwiftKey (not "Saudis", or "s.src") could have trouble differentiating between the words "post" and "past", but a lot of these predictions are way out there, and not even in my default language of English. I'll be switching back to Swype keyboard until I can SwiftKey an email without removing from MY dictionary eight words that I have never used in conversation, let alone in written text.

                          • More chalkboard themes

                            Hello, I like the chalkboard blue theme, and I would like you to add more different colors of that if it is possible. It is clean and beautiful. It is a mix between the new material design of Android L and the traditional keyboard, clean but it still has the number and symbols above each letter. Because if don't want to go directly to the numbers keyboard, that's cool.

                              • Shortcut for language menu

                                Could you please add shortcut for language?
                                I think it would be better to have shortcut for language than for themes if you can't find space in the quick settings.
                                For example I use more than 3 languages and have often to switch between them or turn one off because it suggest words from another language why Croatian and Slovenian are very similar in some words.

                                  Allow for shutting off the phone without losing downloaded language packs. It's very frustrating to be required to re-download language packs every time I shut off the device for a few hours.

                                  • I know you guys use natural language processing, but it doesn't seem to work all the time

                                    I use flow all the time, and have noticed that sometimes if I'm a little sloppy with my swipes, writes would be inserted that are close to what I'm trying to type but don't make grammatical sunset.

                                    I get this a lot, nor nor all the time. Again, if it's reject, I use SwiftKey Flow all the time and only rarely type out the words by tapping. I'm typing out this suggestion without editing it all the mistakes that SwiftKey address to my typing so you can see the sort of things in taking about.

                                    • Change keypress sound or give different sound options.

                                      On behalf of all the people requesting at the forums, I kindly request you to change the horrible keypress sound or give multiple sounds. A lot of my friends are dumping swiftkey because of the keypress sound which really sucks.

                                      • Issue the standard emoji

                                        I used your keyboard and their is a major functionality missing which we just able to add multiple standard emoji. When I add standard emoji the standard emoji panel switches to keyboard. So unable to add multiple emoji with same panel. I might not explaining this right but please have a look it. I just do not want to uninstall your app. So improve it

                                        • Please turn off auto correct option

                                          I need to turn off auto correct option. But there are no options to turn off auto correct.
                                          Hope it will fix very soon
