How can we improve SwiftKey?

Moving cursor and marking text by swiping over the keyboard.

Got the idea from this Youtube video: http://goo.gl/u2Vvk

- Move cursor via swiping over the keyboard.
- Mark text by swiping while holding down Shift button.
- Optionally add quick buttons to copy, cut, paste marked text

        I use this a lot in my Samsung keyboard. And I really miss it. I even have Tasker to auto switch to Samsung keyboard inapps that I needed them most. I really like swiftkey. Hope I'll not have to switch between keyboards again

        I had drag-to-move-cursor on my jailbroken iPhone and miss it. How about an option to to use swiping or drag-to-move?

        First, thank you for insulting me. This was definitely necessary.

        Yes, the cursor knows where to stop. The farther you swipe, the farther the cursor goes (as shown in the video).

        Sure, every input box has those features itself, but it would be more comfortable to have it in the keyboard itself and having to touch the text input box.
