    • Quick Voice Dictation

      Checkout this UX video I made on how swipe gestures with the spacebar could enable better voice dictation integration. http://www.wideo.co/view/4131211404379659760

      Swipe up on spacebar and release to trigger voice dictation mode. Swipe up and hold to dictate, and release or swipe down to stop dictating.

      If you're in dictation mode, allow me to press and hold the mic button vs tapping so that I can dictate in small bursts allowing me to collect my thoughts and put together sentences or instructions in a more natural manner.

      • Stop forcing me to download new themes just for my loyalty!

        I don't care about themes, I just want functionality. I gave up and I am installing the free themes, but just because I am really annoyed and tired of ignoring the "redeem your prize" messages. Stop it please!

        • New layout

          I love this keyboard, I would like a theme that has the keys spaced out a little more (looks like the default keyboard on a Samsung Galaxy S3, S4 or S5).
          I also think we should be able to edit our personal dictionary, there's some words that it learns when we use them, but I don't need them popping up in the first suggested list every time I type.

          • Allow correcting two words after split.

            One of the most annoying behaviors of SwiftKey is: autocorrect splits the word you've typed into two words. Most of the time it does so incorrectly, after all 'space' is a hard key to miss. You press backspace to correct the error, but the SwiftKey acts as though it didn't just split the word you've typed. It offers suggestions for the last word only (the second half of the word you were trying to type). Obviously all of these are useless. You are forced to delete both words and start over.

            • Do long press icons like Fleksy

              At least on themes that don't show the long press icons next to the associated number, (like spotlight and minimal themes), can it be changed where when I long press, I can see all of the long press icons and slide between them like Fleksy?

                  • Auto-correct word to likely suggestion upon hitting "send"

                    When typing on the iPhone, if you hit "send" in a SMS/MMS text message, if there is a word it is suggesting, it automatically corrects without the user needing to choose the word it is suggesting. This would be great--if I send the message "Want to go to the mobied", I would like Swiftkey to auto correct "mobied" to "movies" upong hitting send.

                    • Please stop spamming me. I have all notifications off and continue to get notices. Will go back to goog keyboard as the next try.

                      The app is exceptionally noisy and it's getting annoying enough that I'm getting ready to try off as a way to get Swiftkey to leave me alone about the lang packs. Please stop.

                        • Can't save uncapitalized words in some cases

                          I keep auto-capitalization disabled because I use my mobile device mainly for chatting and I use to split the same sentence in different messages, so they don't require capitalizing - however there are some words that end up capitalized everytime, no matter what. Words such as Android, Facebook and some italian words (that probably are spelled the same as some English proper names) always get saved with capital letter, even if I remove them from my dictionary to add them back without capitalization. This can get quite annoying because the message gets inconsistent as there are some words that do…

                          • remove autospace when selecting suggested word

                            Could you add option to not add space after selecting word from suggested words? When writing SMS and selecting last word in message, it is quite annoying to have to delete unnecessary space.

                                • Don't autocorrect a word when the user backs up and deletes part of it

                                  If I write IPTABLE and get it corrected to "if table", please, don't force me to use "if table" after I deleted your prediction with backspace and really wrote "IPTABLE"

                                  I don't understand why you removed this feature with SwiftKey 5, I now have to fight against the keyboard prediction instead of saving time when I write mails to other technicians working on projects with me.

                                  Thank you.

                                  • annoying

                                    One of the most annoying things about Swiftkey is that when it suggests a word I dont want and then i delete the word and try again, it suggests the same "wrong" word again! Come on! If I have just deleted the word, why does SwiftKey suggests me the same word????
                                    Come on, just a simple rule will fix this most annoying problem related to SwiftKey.
                                    Hope you guys fix it asap because it really drives me crazy for the stupidity of it.
                                    cheers,
                                    Marcos

                                      • Exclamation mark on coma key

                                        Simple solutions work best. We have a dedicated button for a coma and full stop so let's move the exclamation mark from the dot key to the coma and leave just the question mark on full stop. Then you'd have . on short press with ? On long press and , on short press with ! On long press. A lot faster if you ask me.

                                        • A "no prediction or autocorrect" switch

                                          Typing urls or specific code with autocorrect is a nightmare. In some apps SwiftKey will insert the correction as soon as you lift your finger making editing impossible. This isn't a new problem there are old requests on here and it's my biggest complaint, I can switch to another keyboard but then why switch back to SwiftKey?
