Do not automatically add a space after email addresses, because this will cause problems in a lot of forms. (invalid email address)
My Email address has a dot in the first part (before the @) and a space is added automatically. As many times as I've typed it, it still does not come up in the prediction area.
Please remove the auto spacing between letters when you click on dot.. Maybe just the extra space would be sufficient
Trailing space in email prediction is an invalid character in most web forms. Ideally, the trailing space should be omitted by default in strings that include the @ symbol. At the very least, this bug should be documented - I've had a couple of friends pulling their hair out because web forms are rejected because of invalid email addresses that have the (invisible) trailing space.
Hi everyone – SwiftKey now does not do auto-spacing or corrections after you type an @ in an email address.

PLEASE STOP ADDING A SPACE AT THE END OF EMAIL ADDRESSES.
This is a real nuisance with periods in the middle of email addresses and spaces still being added at the end
But it does so when autocompleting an entire email address
As I've already mentioned several times, there are at least three topics, all related to SwiftKey's inadequate space-handling, all of which should be merged, whose total votes far exceed any other request. Also, for the record, this "solution" reported by Sarah doesn't address periods before the @ - which is why this topic can't be closed (but it should be merged)

Hi Sarah Reynolds why not just add my 3 votes from here and add them to my existing 3 votes over there http://support.swiftkey.net/forums/116689-1-ideas-and-suggestions/suggestions/2947495-please-provide-a-way-to-disable-smart-space ,why cant we please just disable "smart" space completely !
@Sarah Reynolds: Since this has been implemented, this idea should be closed and the votes returned to users who voted for it.
ADMIN - please merge the votes and comments for this with the identical suggestion at:
It still doesnt help when entering info in forms! Im a paid user and I am about to uninstall this keyboard that I love other then the auto space issues. My email is setup like email@example.com and it put the first letter capitalized and spaces after it every dang time!!!!!
I've just had my email address rejected because you appended an extra space at its end. Arguably the form should be smart enough to detect that, and in many cases that happens, but better would be that you don't do it in the first place.
I just downloaded SwiftKey from the market, and i am still seeing this in some places. I think the better thin to do would be to not insert a space at all, until another word is entered. Example would be on my banking app, SwiftKey saves my username (which I am ok with) then always inserts a space after it, which I need to backspace. Other examples are in Google+ I will go to + someone, and then insert a question mark at the end because their name is the last word in the question. "Do you think this or that, +xyz person?" That is how I should look. But with SwiftKey, the question looks like this: "Do you think this or that, +xyz person ?"
If I try to backspace the space, then the + feature breaks and so the person isn't tagged on the post, but with other keyboards and in fact even the Android keyboard, I can put the question mark immediately after the person that I mentioned, without a space.

This change, by the way, doesn't excite me one iota. I'm not shifting back until proper handling of space has been implement without all these layers of hacks to make typing appear "smarter". There's no smarter than KISS.
Andreas Toth commented
Fixes like this are still not enough. My Gmail e-mail address, for example, has two full-stops BEFORE the @ symbol. Being able to fully disable auto-spacing is the only solution.

oh no worries. Thanks. I keep checking back on SwiftKey because the prediction was what I missed. A I type seems to have a lot of wonderful features that even SwiftKey did not possess and I have been using that for a while now.
Chris Pilgrim commented
I noticed the change! Cool. No space after '@' or auto email fill :)

Charley B - I got the update on my phone, but the bug I complain about is still present.
Anyway, given the slow update pace, I assume the code has reached a point where fixing a bug creates 2 more, and they prefer to play safe, so I don't really expect too many improvements in the future, only bugfixes.
Probably it's the moment to move on to another keyboard, as others suggested.
Charley B commented
YaY. It's a start, albeit a small one. Only problem is now, the new keyboard I'm using has things like emoji and graphics and all sorts of other nice little goodies that I'm not sure SwiftKey actually supports :-( but Bogdan is correct, it's the space at the END of the email address that's even more frustrating than the one after the '@'. When will the update for this be pushed out to all users? I haven't seen it yet.
