        • I think it would be better if we can change the size of the keyboard

          I have a low - end phone with qvga display and there the keybo ard is very big. It is would be better if we can change the size of the buttons for example.

          • Swift Key constantly changes words that I type.

            Girl's name 'JILL' keeps being changed to KILL.

            Dictation time is only a second or two. There is NO available time control. Terrible!~!!!!

            • Improve switching to/from Dashlane Password Manager

              Recently started using Dashlane to manage passwords across multiple platforms. They have their own keyboard that can fill fields like username and password and others. It has greatly improved my password practices. But they can't touch SwiftKey suggestions for text.

              So problem becomes: How to easily switch between keyboards?

              I find Dashlane Keyboard and Google Keyboard both use a longpress-space-bar to bring up the 'Choose input method' menu. This lets me switch between those two keyboards without leaving the app.

              Please could you add "longpress-space-bar brings up the 'Choose input method' menu" feature to Swiftkey?

              If not, I will be…

              • Autocorrect 'off' needy

                It's quite disturbing (caused by Samsung ? Microsoft via samsung?) on a phablet to find growing mismatches on autocorrect in dutch (bullyservers in Ire?) but if no disable autocorrect in swiftkey i have to leave it behind. I have NO cloud 'on' for the sole reason it is intransparantly busy to 'in'. Without clear view about aspects, like 'out'. The 'in-no-out' policy =sucky. Distracting. If that kind of policy is prio over userlearning-at-users-timesaving, instead of the reverse, then swiftkey future is doubtfully. Sorry a hard key is more trustful than the primarily harvesting oriented soft key! Trust=1. Do not destroy…

                • Better recognition for tense

                  "Joe sighed and reac-" [reaching] [reach] [reaches]

                  If I am typing a sentence, and I already used one tense in the sentence, the next words in the sentence will probably use the same tense, as the predictions are failing to do in the above illustration. Please detect whether the writer is using past, future, present, etc. tense and weight words in that sentence accordingly.

                      • Change size of each key according to user heatmap

                        Under "user statistic" a heatmap could be generated in order to see which buttons are pressed in what accuracy.
                        The idea is to implement an personalised keyboard which changes the sizes of the buttons according to the heatmap.
                        So for example if the button "x" is your weak button it should appear bigger on the keyboard and so on...

                          Prior versions showed three predictions in thumb mode on tablets. Bring that back. Why are two better than three?

                            • Thumb mode, make space in middle visable

                              I really like thumb mode on my tablet Sony xperia Z2. What would be great is if the 'blank' space in the middle would be 100% transparent, or even better make 2 like floating thumb keyboards on the left and right . I think it would greatly improve browsing experience on my tablet.

                              • space after punctuation

                                It would be nice if spaces were inserted after punctuation (as in commas, questions marks, etc). Period can achieve this with the double space, but all other punctuation requires separately adding in spaces.

                                  If there was a keayboard input method like ation keyboard for indic languages. Like kannada (like translation keyboard in 'indic keyboard' app from swatantra malayalam) it would be easier for typing.

                                  • Narrow size availability for landscape mode just like minuum

                                    When typing in Landscape mode the keyboard occupies the whole screen. We cant use the the screen real estate to see what others are writing (in whatsapp conversation)

                                    Please shorten the size of keyboard

                                      • Cross out

                                        Sometimes it is better to cross out a word or phrase than to delete it. Is there a chance to get "crossed out letters" like they are available in word processing programms?

                                        • Use the wasted space next to the compact view to show the number keys and some common punctuation.

                                          There's no reason to have the big black void next to the keyboard in compact mode. Move the side to side button into they keyboard selection (standard, thumb, compact left, compact right). Use all that wonderful extra space for numbers and common punctuation. You have gobs of data about which of the two tap keys are used the most. Move those keys next to the compact keyboard. (I personally do not want arrow keys in any way. Just tap the text to move the cursor)
