          The new 5.0 update is incredibly slow compared to before. Its especially seen and felt when switching to the ****** emoijs.

            • Disable hardware home key while typing.

              While typing on my phone with a hardware touch home button (Oneplus One), I often accidentally hit home when going for space. If an option were created on SwiftKey to disable this button whole typing, I'd love that.

                • Quickly toggle Flow

                  I love tap-typing on SwiftKey, and one of the most defining features that I pretty much can no longer live without is the gesture to backspace an entire word by swiping to the left. However, when I only have one hand available, I find Flow to be very useful as well, but activating Flow disables the backspace gesture. I would like to suggest that there be a quick toggle on the keyboard, or maybe even better if there was one at least in the small settings menu that appears when holding down the "123"/Swiftkey logo key rather than having to…

                    • Priority to accented vocals

                      Giving the firts priority to accented vocals makes the long press more useful because this is required more often than selecting other characters, especially whent writing in Spanish. Also, including exclamation, punctuation, and question marks in the prediction bar, after a word has been selected woul make typing faster than having to long press in the period key. This are features that I have fund very useful in other keyboards, and wouls maje this one even better than already is.

                        • Delete or exclude place names from language packs.

                          I would like if the language packs came with the option to exclude place names. I use UK English because I grew up with it and the spelling of American English gives me shudders. But I don't live in the UK and don't need the place names, which are cluttering up my keyboard and might also be dragging it down with more predictions. I would like to be able to get rid of them with one stroke.

                            • Gestures for Space

                              Swipe right removes the last word - why not add swipe left for complete word / space? Sounds logical to me and works well with Fleksy - that's what I'm missing in SwiftKey right now. Should be easy to make and I see no reason against it.

                                  Currently, the Emojis menu doesn't match my current theme, which for aesthetically-inclined people like me, makes for an uneven user experience.

                                  • Have SwiftKey match my system theme

                                    SwiftKey may not always match the system theme from the get-go, which is actually against Google' design language guidelines. I'd love to have SwiftKey either assemble for me or choose the best theme fit for my phone on its first boot qualifying the theme based on OS, OS version, phone, and (root) current system theme used.

                                    • Program swiftkey to change theme depending on active app or time of day

                                      For instance, using Facebook Messenger I could program swiftkey to use a light colored theme. When using my message app, a dark theme could be active . A default theme could be pre selected. Also, themes could switch depending the time of day. For instance, knowing that it gets dark after 8,swiftkey could auto switch the default theme to a less bright (predefined, of course) one. I think this would make the phone less dull and it it could also be a slight battery saver for amoled displays.

                                        • Add option to put the period/fullstop key on the left next to the comma - I always hit the period key accidentally

                                          Like many others on this forum, I am regularly accidentally typing a period when i mean to push the space bar.

                                          I assume I have the "longer space bar" referred to here since that is an old ticket (http://support.swiftkey.net/forums/116689-ideas-and-suggestions/suggestions/2035377-make-the-spacebar-longer?page=1&per_page=20) but that hasnt helped me much.

                                          A simple option in the Layout menu to put the period on the left of the keyboard would solve the problem for me because i almost always use my right thumb to do a space.
