    The width of the keys is determined by the width of your phone. The whole keyboard is touch-sensitive (there are no gaps between the keys) and SwiftKey’s input modelling adapts to the way that you interact with your screen to make typing easier. Check out your heatmap (under Settings>Stats) to see how SwiftKey adapts to the way that you type.

        I second this. I am always having problems. And it really looks like there is a lot of extra space. Regardless of. How smart this thing is supposed to be, I am having a LOT more issues with this keyboard and typos than before. Uninstalling until fixed.

        +1 I'm a new user, love the app, but need wider keys. There is some room available that is not being used. I need to be able to choose a keyboard with a tiny amount of space between each key. Please! Again, absolutely love the predicitive function.

        Size of keys is result of placement. Need less keys on main keyboard.

        The second row of keys could fill the screen instead of having wasted space at each end. The shift key could be wider at the expense of the backspace key (I'm forever hitting "z" instead of shift). The SwiftKey key should be removed and the functions added to the menu.

        I am thinking that the keys could just have more space between them like the stock keyboard, which would make aiming for them that little bit easier.

        Please! add options to choose the width of keys, or to remove some of them that aren't necessary.... Make space key bigger... remove "Swyftkey key" and "question key" for example...
