  1. Easier detection of BT keyboards

    SwiftKey does not support all BT keyboards, some still show up with the Physical Keyboard option greyed out. As SwiftKey cannot be expected to support every possible keyboard out there, it may be useful to either have a way of submitting a new keyboard to SwiftKey, or alternatively detect it from the Bluetooth settings, when a device supporting "Input" has been detected.

    • $ not £

      I really wish I could switch out that silly £ British Pound key to something useful in my country... Or even a $ sign would be nice. The other currency keys are so buried... The heard that if you sail to edge of the map, you won't actually fall off the edge in an abyss. So they say.

        • Include the ability to ignore / not suggest / correct items entered in ALL CAPS.

          I work in an industry with lots of abbreviations and acronyms. It is extremely frustrating to correctly enter one and have it morph into an unwanted word. A simple toggle could allow these to be ignored.

            • autocomplete enable/disable option

              hi everyone, I just wanted to mention a suggestion. could the word suggestions that pop up when you type be disabled, then an option to re-enable them again? I ask, because it's annoying when you don't need to use it.

              • Auto-correct toggle button for username and password field not identified as such.

                There are situations were I need to quickly switch off auto-correct, auto space, auto capitalize, etc for username and password input in fields that are not recognized as such (for instance password managers). A toggle button on keyboard will be enough. There is also a good idea to also prevent Swiftkey from learning such words.

                • Customize lock-screen for alphanumeric passwords to show a PIN pad

                  I am using device encryption and with it I have to use an alphanumeric password which is hard to enter so many times when I want to use the phone. The idea is to be able to assigned a letter, number or special character to standard number pad (0 to 9). For instance a is 1, b is 2 3 is 3. My device password is ab1. Instead of using the small standard keyboard the lockscreen displays a num pad. When I press 123 Swiftkey converts it to ab3, display field shows *** and I can quickly unlock the phone…

                      • Customizable emoticons....

                        Allow us to create our own emoticons using shortcuts to display them once created. Basically a mix between a macro and creating emoji.

                        • Add trending words daily.

                          Add a social library of words to the dictionary. Mine twitter, CNN, and other sources for trending words. Update my dictionary on the fly. If I hear about something on the radio and I go to search for it, Swiftkey should already have a clue about what I'm trying to spell.

                          • hi

                            1. arrow keys could be more slim or make it variable. also an option to move arrow key to the top of the keyboard etc.
                            2. small keyboard size could be more "smaller"
                            3. little space bar to make room for other symbols.

                            thanks.

                                    I don't want SwiftKey learning my email addresses I type as they are often used as usernames. I know some users like this but it be good to turn this off. Same with URLs too.

                                      O app ficaria muito bom se vocês colocassem os números em tecla separada das letras para a digitação ficar mais rápido e prático.

                                        with the new Swiftkey store, themes are already available for download. although preview is available as well, I think it would be very much appreciated by the user if they can actually try on their phone or tablet what these themes would look like before buying them. let's say 1 hour or so... (just like fitting clothes) you may know your size but sometimes the fitting isn't what you've thought

                                        if the user likes how the theme looks on their gadget, he/ she may purchase it...

                                        • Lagging and less free themes

                                          Swift keyboard is slow and lag very frequently. Moreover there r very less themes which are free of cost. Looking for a update with all resolution of problems.
