Automatically capitalize the letter "I" when it's all alone.
When you're just typing the letter I as in speaking in the first person, having the I automatically capitalize. I use the enter a space after hitting spacebar and because of that the letter I is always lowercase when by itself.

No. You should capitalize it yourself. This destroys Scandinavian language, where the preposition i (=in) is the most common word.
This seems to have been implemented, will it be closed any time soon to give everyone back their votes?
I just want to add myself to the list of people that finds auto capitalizing "I" in non-english languages a little tiring. I usually type norwegian, but like to have the english dictionary available at the same time.
How is it possible some people have it not capitalize when when they want it to, and for others it doesn't when they do?
Please stop capitalizing the "i"-letter! In Norwegian, "i" means "inn". This lett should NOT be capitalized in Norwegian. Now I have to make this letter lowercase every time I write it in Norwegian, which is often.. Could you please learn from me correcting it every time, or make the capitilazation optional?
PLEASE make this optional; in my informal typing (text messages, facebook posts, etc.) I use a lowercase "I," as in "i love you," "i'll go," "i'd like to," etc. Even though I have AutoCaps disabled, it always predicts the capital and never lowercase, meaning for "i'll" I have to press i key, long press apostrophe, press l key, press l key, and even STILL press the "prediction" of what I actually typed, as capitalized is what it still wants to do.
I use SwiftKey in Norwegian and English. The letter I is automatically capitalized, so I gave the opposite problem when typing Norwegian.

Agree.. The letter i should always be automatically capitalized in English mode.... It's frustrating now, so please fix it. Thanks.

I like this idea as long as SwiftKey X keeps enough statistics about *currently* typed input to not mess with my text if the current input language is not English. SwiftKey X already supports inputting mixed languages and feature such as this should not cripple that feature.
This makes total sense if you're using only English. If not, auto capitalization of every occurance of "I" may cause problems. I use SwiftKey specifically because it allows me to use three languages at once - English, Polish and Czech. In Polish the letter "i" means "and", and should be lowercase when used in the middle of the sentence, so I end up decapitalizing it manually every time... Wouldn't it be possible for SwiftKey to learn that I'm doing it and start suggesting lowercase "i" with higher priority?
If so it should be made an optional thing, as we have a word in Danish "i" meaning "in" spelled in lower case.
