  1. 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.

          • 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

            • More minimal keyboard

              The new themes are great but it would even better if we could customize the typing experience. For example; if we could increase the space in between the keys and make the predictions bar and its font size smaller. With more space between the letters it could make the keyboard more tactile feeling (clicky) and making the prediction box smaller with finer print would save space. Also, it would be nice if we could disable the numbers and symbols that show up just above the letters so we would only see the letters, I think it would improve the aesthetics…

                  • SwiftKey Urgently needs a key to minimize the keyboard

                    Why not having a key to minimize the keyboard whenever I need to do so, instead of having to press the back button every time I need to get back to the text I am editing? Please help us being more efficient at writing with SwiftKey. Thanks and regards from Mexico.

                    • Have more symbols on the symbols screen

                      One thing that I had personally, and I'm not sure how everyone else feels about this, but on my stock keyboard it had the numbers in a row on top on all screens, so for example you hit the symbols button it shows more symbols at once because the numbers were on top. If possible I would like there to be an option to where it does that instead of having a keyboard there.

                      • Disable emoji auto fill from symbols *IN SMS*.

                        I'm very happy emojis were added, however I don't like using them a lot.
                        If I type "<3" I want it to stay as text instead of auto filling to

                          If it would be helpful, you can disable “Emoji Prediction” in SwiftKey’s Advanced settings. Doing so will then prevent emoji from being offered in the prediction bar. At the present time, this setting isn’t app-specific.

                        • Emoji plugin to match iOS

                          Please create a plugin that gives SwiftKey iOS style emoji. There are tons of lesser keyboard apps that give this functionality, but SwiftKey doesn't? Outrageous!

                          • ABCDEF keyboard layout

                            My husband has aphasia from a stroke and it is very difficult for him to use the QWERTY layout as he remembers the alphabet and therefore easier for him to find the letters. I know this would be helpful for many challenged folks.

                            • Auto suggest the current date

                              When I begin type what I know will be date e.g. "20" use one of the prediction slots for current date "2014-09-11".
                              Obviously consult local format, which would have to consider 11/09/2014 if I was to type 11, or American 09/11/2014.

                              Also don't remember previous dates, unhelpful in my experience.

                                      • Autocorrect

                                        Please add a soft key to quickly stop auto-correction or switch between spacebar modes. This will be very useful when texting short messages with slang, stenograph and some language pack.

                                        Thank you.
