  1. Add a few more themes to the store (color-wise) and add a few more languages to it as well.

    Would be really good to add mandarin and Japanese to this. And a more organized themes section to the store, but otherwise probably the best keyboard I've ever used

    • Please don't change my capitalization or lack thereof, if the word is otherwise typed correctly.

      If I've typed a word correctly and capitalized one or more letters, in any sequence or position, please don't change the word to alter the capitalized letters. Likewise please do not autocorrect a properly spelled word to the same word but with previously used, different capitalization. I hope I've explained myself clearly. I can't think of a better way to put it.

        • Add an option to disable Popup on keypress

          Hi, I'm reposting this as a separate thread because SwiftKey seems to have forgotten that they put this feature under review.

          Please have a look here to see that many of us actually want this feature since 2011!!!
          And it was put under review in 2012.
          Is this really that tough to implement??

          http://support.swiftkey.net/forums/116689-ideas-and-suggestions/suggestions/1987971-turn-on-and-off-letter-pop-ups-popups-popups

          Please work on this because this is something that causes major performance issues.
          I'm on a Galaxy S2 I9100 and can clearly tell that the stock keyboard was much much smoother than this.

          It doesn't cause a lot of problems when using flow, but while typing…

          • Please add Amharic to the language! list

            I am a translator for the Amharic language. Unfortunately Amharic is not included in the language list.

                  • Full stop with and without space

                    Is it possible that SK can distinguish between automatically corrected punctuation with a space and those that are set manually? It’s not possible to make a full stop or ellipsis with a leading space.

                    • Make Secondary keyboard scrollable

                      After one press the secondary keyboard should become visible only while long press is still active and you should be able to pan to the correct symbol and then release similar to the period pop up. This is useful for minimal/spotlight themes where the secondary keyboard is not visible and the user might only know the approximate position of the secondary key.

                      • How about programming the software to reject mistakes that a typist has repeatedly corrected by back-deleting & then retyping.

                        The choice most often typed in after the correction, could become the one that the software inserts automatically.

                        • Let me share a few ideas...

                          1. You should make button for easy switching between different keyboards
                          2. Also here should be a support of Japanese
                          3. Move digits in a symbol layout in one line atop
                          4. Add button that should contain other word options - 3 is clearly not enough
                          5. You should use Standart Google voice engine, not current

                          Goods luck, you guys! ^_^

                                  I am thinking. How about triple tap the space bar to hide the keyboard.? I think that be cool. Because the swipe down gesture does not work.

                                  • Enter all the shortcuts to emojis

                                    You should enter all the shortcuts you can use to type in the word and get the emoji. I really like that but cannot figure out some of them and it is a pain to hold the enter button and find the emoji.

                                      • Minimalist Minuum style keyboard.

                                        I am torn between the awesome layout of the of the minimum keyboard and the accuracy and learning of SwiftKey. I need swiftkey to come out with a similar design to switch back to using it as a primary keyboard.

                                        • Provide differend special character page layouts

                                          I don't like the number block. Put the numbers to the top row and assemble the special characters in the two lines below.
                                          Also, it'd be great to have the ^ character on the first page of the special caracter page. I'm used to making ^^-smileys and it's annoying to use more than 4 clicks for it :P

                                          So all in all, i wish to have a choice between the classic special character menu and the one I just proposed.

                                          I'd be glad if you took your time to implement that, as it's the one thing that keeps annoying me…
