  1. Need Mature looking themes

    Need mature themes. No more of the glow in the dark or glaring colors like pink, orange, or lime green. I'm using aitype just cause there keyboards look professional. Not kiddie like yours. I rather use Swift Key, since I did pay for it and it actually does a better job at error correction and predictions.

      • Customizable shortcuts

        Customise shortcuts like for example program when you hold down "1" to anything you want. Reason is I want it to be my email address Pacifico.Talens.Jr@gmail.com. Folk like me with one or multiple "." in email has to go back and edit after each dot because SwiftKey autospaces after each one

          • Color and font customisation for themes

            Color and font customisation for themes, I love the dark theme, but I don't like the green, I want to change the flow and accent color to be modifiable, for example, the flow and font of holo but the key separations of dark. But the accent colors darker.

                  • Display relevant accents next to finger tip i.e. Ä next to a, or ö next to o when german language has been selected as main language.

                    When i hold down finger tip on vowel, display relevant accents next to finger tip i.e. Ä next to a, or ö next to o when german language has been selected as main language. Because i write mostly in German it makes no sense to display ą, or æ next to a. A french person equally prefers to see accents such as á, â ratger than å or ã

                    • disable prediction and learning (quick option)

                      Sometimes there are words that we do not want to be kept in the prediction list.

                      so the ability to disable learning and prediction through a quick button, (without going to settings) would be really useful.

                          • Higher priority predictive spelling for current documents

                            Repeated words or names in current document should be predicted earlier. Most of what I write often contains unique words, such as a company name etc. It would help if I didn't have to enter an entire word. Is there any way to do this?

                              • Typing option when using flow..

                                When using flow, if we type a word and ther are multiple options for the word, Swiftkey automatically selects the 1st word and inserts space. If I have to select 2nd or 3rd option, I have to press back key and then select the desired word. Make feature that for multiple options the app waits for the user to select the word and then automatically insert space and suggest new word.

                                • Disable automatic space in specific use case

                                  Automatic space insertion is hotly debated in general, but there is one small use case where I think it should definitely be suppressed. It is the following:

                                  I have typed a word, followed by some punctuation, let's say a comma. I then notice that my word has been autocorrected (which I did not want in this case). I change the word back by tapping on it and selecting the intended spelling. The word is corrected, and a space is inserted *before* my already typed comma - obviously not what I want.

                                  My instinctive next move is to just delete the…

                                  • Develop an add-on for synonyms

                                    For those of us who use SwiftKey for things other than texting - blogs, social media posts, Emails, etc - it would be nice to have an add-on to suggest synonyms. Maybe it becomes available after double-tapping a word, or is included with the cut/copy/paste options, or there is a designated key. I think this would be a nice option, very helpful, and be something else to further set you apart from the field.

                                    For what it's worth, I used Swype since it started and liked it a lot, but used the SwiftKey trial for about a day and it…

                                        When you swipe right anywhere on the keyboard (except spacebar) a space should be typed.
