    • Minimal White would be nice!

      Minimal White would be nice, I don't like the light gray one!

      • Hide keyboard

        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…

                • Captcha

                  Have an option to turn off word prediction temporarily for captcha fields. Of turned off you can enter a word 1)without having the first word capitalized and 2)it would not remember that nonsense word.

                  Thank you.

                  • Larger font on the keys. Maybe offer options on the font like bold and italic

                    Bigger letters on the keys. Just because the keyboard can be resized doesn't mean bigger font. Please consider this for those of us with bigger fingers. Thank you

                      • It would be nice that a particular prediction would not change place when typing more letters, if the same prediction is offered

                        The word predictions may change with every additional letter, but if there is the same prediction in consecutive "rounds", for example "exa" and "exam" it would be nice that the prediction ("example" or whatever) would not change place, i.e. if it was on the left side, it would stay on the left side. The changing places is very annoying when typing fast and you see the correct prediction, but might still type one letter more and then go for the correct prediction you saw, but when pressing it has changed to another word. Hopefully this was not too unclearly explained.

                        • Allow a option to move directional arrows to secondary function area

                          Hi SwiftKey team

                          Something I would like to request is that you can have a option to move "directional arrows" from the main primary keyboard to the secondary function keyboard area.
                          I just feel this would be a good option as the current directional keys sit underneath the space bar area and make you have to concentrate more and making sure to item the space bar, the return key or even the options key on the bottom left, instead of the directional arrows?

                          Even if you could move them away form the bottom would be better I feel.

                          Would love…

                          • Bring back options for the Enter key

                            Please provide customizable options for the Enter key action. Options: Send, New line, or Smiley/Emoji. Examples: enter to send/ long press for smiley.

                            It seems enough people have their own preference on what the Enter key can do for them. It would be very useful to at least have the option to change it.

                            I would really appreciate this addition to an incredible keyboard. I find it extremely useful to be able to send messages quickly right from the keyboard.

                            • I want to have the letter n "nyeh" to complete the word espanol & also the other letters based from the original KEYBOARD of the device.

                              I want the other words like nyeh from the letter n of espanol to be
                              placed in the keyboard and other letters like nyeh and would love it if you based the shortcuts for them from my samsung tab 2 10.1 original keyboard........ Also the question marks and exclamatory marks, place them near the right middle because its hard to tap them at the very side.

                              • Make the screen see thru while in compact and undocked.

                                Make it able to see what's behind the floating keyboard.. I think that makes use of the whole screen with out having to move the keyboard around because you can't read what's behind the keys...

                                • S-Pen / Handwriting Integration

                                  Integrate the S-Pen (or any other handwriting to text inputs) handwriting to text functionality into SwiftKey. This should include a means of activating handwriting input from the SwiftKey keyboard by either long-pressing a key in the same fashion that we are currently able to activate the voice input key on the comma button, or by toggling it via the dedicated SwiftKey settings button (or through some other genius SwiftKey way, you guys are awesome!). The integration of a stylus/handwriting input should obviously include SwiftKey's word prediction engine. PLEASE DO IT! IT WOULD BE AMAZING!

                                    • Stop the nag screens.

                                      I'm an original paid user, and gave 5 stars when this first came out, and still prefer SwiftKey over the others. But I keep getting nag screens to RATE when I have already rated. I use the cloud service, so some settings should have been saved, how about one that knows I have already rated the app? My current rating is now a 3 from all the nagging, down from the original 5. Seriously fire you marketing team.

                                      • How about fewer notifications on my phone? I find them redundant and too often.

                                        I think you send out too many notifications about your product when I am already using it. If I want to change the look, I can do that. I don't need to be reminded of this every week or so.
