    • A suggestion mode quick toggle

      Have a dedicated button on the keyboard that toggles on and off suggests. Some phrases are just impossible/extremely difficult to type with suggestions always on, like typing "google.com" will normally become "Google. Com" without some tedious editing. Also some fields don't disable suggestions automatically, most often email being the worst. As I feel there's no good predictive way to eliminate all the need for no-suggestion typing, I think a manual toggle would be the way to go.

      • Move the cursor with a keyboard gesture

        Moving the cursor (on ios) is one of the more frustrating endeavors. I wonder if SwiftKey could solve this by allowing a sliding gesture along the space bar to move the cursor. Similarly, a slide beginning at the shift key would highlight the text.

                  • Blacklist certain apps from adding to predicition library.

                    If you're using word apps for games, such as Crossword Solver, you type in non-word letters such as DFGRIJKN. I'd prefer if Swiftkey did not remember that. I know I can manually delete it, and it's not the end of the world. It's more of an 'elegance' kind of issue.
                    I'm not sure, but this may be the same as

                      • Update the Holo theme with white text to match Android 4.4

                        Along with Android 4.4 came the updated Google Keyboard, and I just think the Holo theme for SwiftKey should be updated with white text instead of blue to match the new design. I would start using the theme if it was like that, I love the color in the new Google Keyboard

                        • make the display (or not) of the long-press characters a user option independent of the theme

                          have a checkbox setting for whether to show the long-press hints on keys or not, independent of the theme. i really love the minimal black theme... but need to see what the long press key is.

                          • Reorder secondary characters

                            Hi, although I'm aware that secondary characters are available by long press, sometimes the first option is not the one I need. So I would like to intelligence on the keyboard on the way that could reorder the secondary characters based on usage. For example I use the € symbol a lot, and never use the £ symbol. It would be very Friendly to me to have the € symbol as first option instead. Also sometimes I need to use the the numeric option, so the same applies but in this case would be available right as primary character since…

                              handwriting is pretty general and is a convenience for many asian languages, but there is no reason to not include it for any other language. perhaps as an additional on/off feature?

                                  • Keyboard font size

                                    Hi.
                                    Would you please put a part in swiftkey settings to change keyboard font and font-size? The keyboard font size is so small for people that have vision weakness.

                                    Thank you in advance.

                                      • Emoji - Long press Enter key.

                                        In: Settings>Layout one can choose the superfluous option, "Enter Key: Always long press for emoji." That seems to be the default anyway, even when that box is unchecked! I hate emoji and never use them. It would be great to have the option to turn that particular long-press function off completely.

                                        • Let backspace key to undo the last prediction, just like in Google Keyboard

                                          The title is quite self explanatory. I think that one of the best functions of Google Keyboard is that you can undo the predictions when writing with a simple press of the backspace key. SwiftKey should really add it.
