      • Enable 'slide delete' in Flow mode by swiping backwards on the spacebar

        'Slide to delete' is the only reason I don't use Flow mode. I've tried multiple times to use it, but the need for slide delete is too great.

        I've played around with flow for a bit and the best way I can see to keep this feature enabled (whilst in Flow) is to allow the gesture to be used if you swipe to the left on the spacebar.

        The spacebar has a large enough surface area to pick up the gesture without interfering with the rest of the keyboard. The feature would compliment the fast nature of flow without having…

          • Add a personal dictionary already please.

            I fully understand the way it works now, but it's not efficient, it takes to long and often doesn't work. Please just let us make a list of words to save as a user personal dictionary. We all want it, when you add it you get my 5 star review and I'm sure a lot of others because once it's done I won't have any complaints at all and this would be the perfect keyboard. Thanks

              • Have a € symbol hot key for English. There aren't as many non American English speakers that use the £! (eg bilinguals)

                Have a € symbol hot key for English on the main keyboard. There aren't as many non American English speakers that use the £! (eg bilinguals). Or at least put it on the 2nd screen menu, not the 2nd sub menu!

                • 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…

                    • disable auto space

                      read about difficulties on developing tbis, BTW you could start simply adding the option to disable auto space
                      (eg by simply adding a delete char after swipe), in an advance menu like.., and see how user deal with it..
                      eg:auto space disable only if user don't chose a suggestion, this way user has to add space by himself he really needs it, simple cause space bar is big , eg:so swipe only=no space, choosing prediction=1 space

                      ..another way is to add a backspace after prediction, while swiping if user ends the swipe in the space bar, that way normal user…

                      • Suggestions with capitalised letters

                        I often typing messages for my mom or grandma, and I need to use ALL CAPITALISED LETTERS for better viewing text by they. But in capitalised mode suggestions don't works as usually. Please, add these feature that suggestions will be equally shown in small and capitalised typing!

                          • Why on earth didn't you make the .com key optional?

                            You might have had a bunch of users that didn't want this key, but you might lose me as a customer due to the difficulty of typing. Com (See?!)

                              • SwiftKey doesn't always start a sentence with a capital letter.

                                Just noticed something small that is annoying me. When I access Google now via the search bar it always allows me to start a sentence without a capital letter. I always find my self going back to correct it. It always seems to do that on a google search. Not sure if it's supposed to or not.

                                  • 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.
