  1. 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?

          • Autocorrect words throughout typing a sentence

            SwiftKey already has excellent prediction and autocorrect abilities, but they only work immediately after a word is typed. This can cause problems with words that sound correct in the current context, but are wrong when considering the entire sentence. For instance: "Well be there around 2." (I typed that using SwiftKey and no corrections)

            It would be great if SwiftKey could auto correct all words in a sentence after, say, any word is typed, or at the end of a sentence. For instance, SwiftKey could analyze the sentence after 'be' or 'there', realize I meant to type "We'll" and go…

                • Unify SwiftKey size

                  When you use the line of digit and you want to send an emoticon, SwiftKey's size changes.
                  So unifying the sizes of this keyboard may be cool!

                  • Night theme option that switches automatically

                    Would be very nice to have an option to choose a dark theme to switch automatically at night. It's become very popular to have apps and dialers that change themes after dark automatically. My sms, email and dialer all change to night mode and I would love it if my keyboard also switched to night mode. It would complete the night time theme change. BTW, I have been using SwiftKey long before it became free. Thank you for your consideration.

                    • Thumb layout predictions

                      Rather than the current thumb layout that is too tall, has a lot of wasted space in the middle, and only has two predictions, list 3 predictions vertically in the space between the two halves of the keyboard.

                          • UK support for Ash (æ)

                            English UK still technically requires the dipthong characters such as the ash (æ) and ethel (œ), but they don't seem to be available on the keyboard at all (and yet we have got ð?!)
                            Can we have them just so we British can spell archæology and diarrhœa properly, please?

                              Why not having a key to minimize the keyboard whenever I need to do so, instead of having to press the back button every time I need to get back to the text I am editing? Please help us being more efficient at writing with SwiftKey. Thanks and regards from Mexico.

                              • Desktop-based app or Chrome plug-in with flow typing with a Wacom pen.

                                I use a Wacom tablet, and would love a desktop-based app or Chrome plug-in that would let me use flow typing with a Wacom pen. This would also be handy for Cintiq users.

                                Can't find anything similar online, does this not exist?

                                Thanks!

                                      • costumizable bottom row to change the period to "?" or "!".

                                        Like we already have in sewiftkey, double click on space to type a period, so we do not need another period just next to it... it should be costumizable,
