How can we improve SwiftKey?

Ctrl, alt, tab.

Would be nice to have ctrl, alt and tab keys.
Installed this keyboard a couple of days ago and beginning to learn it I like it! But I don't want to keep switching to other keyboards just for these keys.
How about long press on space (earlier suggested by another user) or shift?

        I have been a long time Swiftkey user, but now I'm seriously researching other keyboards because of the lack of CTRL, ALT and ESC keys.

        I love this keyboard but like other commenters here the CTRL ALT & ESC keys are essential for SSH!

        Please, please, please add tvis ASAP!

        Thanks in advance & regards,

        OzOle

        Have this app and now wish I didn't buy it. It is indeed amazing but with no tab/F keys it's useless for me. They do have a Tab key now but 2 pages away from main kaybaord and for some reason SSH does not see when I use it.

        Installed it, found there was no convenient way to tab or escape, uninstalled.

        i cant use swiftkey for ssh because of missing ctrl-key
        this sad, because it's in every other way the best software-keyboard out there.

        tab and esc would be a bonus, but since i dont need them as often it's not first priority to me.

        this is the reason why i am not using this keyboard anymore, as far is i'm aware, this is the best keyboard for me, but i simply can't use it without these keys, you really need those keys for ssh
