Typing Turkish characters is not very smooth in current version with English QWERTY layout.
If it is not easy to create a Turkish QWERTY layout in a short time for the developers, I have a more easy customization offer for Turkish characters: ç, ğ, ı, ş, ö, ü . So, SwiftKey developers will not need to change English Qwerty layout radically. This may work as a quick or early solution. In summary, I say that change the order of selection of Turkish characters from second to first (for c, g, i, o, s and u) and we will be able to type them easily by just pressing these letters long. OR please provide this as an option for Turkish users.
1- These (ç, ğ, ı, ş, ö, ü) are second options; if you press long to c, g, i, o, s and u. If you press long and release these keys, Swiftkey X prints: ^, *, 8, #, 9 and 7. To type ç for example; you need to press long to c and select second option ç. Too much work for a single letter.
My idea is to change these first options to Turkish characters for c, g, i, o and u. So when we press c, it will print c. If we press long to c and release, it will print ç, we will press long to c and select ^ as the second option.
We in Turkish, definitely type ç and ş more frequently than ^ and # . It is true for ğ and *. In a Turkish text or message we use ü, ı and ö more frequently then the numbers 7 8 9.
So if possible, and if it seems reasonable to you, please change the current key selection structure of
(c - ^ - ç) (g - * - ğ), (i - 8 - ı), (s - # - ş), (o - 9 - ö), (u - 7 - ü)
(c - ç - ^) (g - ğ - *), (i - ı - 8), (s - ş - #), (o - ö - 9), (u - ü - 7)
in the next update. OR please provide this as an option for Turkish users.
I agree with him. After update Turkish characters added as a ekstra keys. So this made keyboard smaller and hard to use. Especially users which are using more than one languages are confusing while writing and making more mistakes and that is very annoying. Please give us an option for using Turkish characters as a separate or embedded(which shown when long pressed)

Well, this was a stupid suggestion. Buttons are too narrow to write quickly. We didn't need a Turkish layout. I understand this need with any other keyboard but with Swiftkey, why the would you need Turkish characters? Swiftkey already replaces and corrects it beautifully.
Big thanks to all the people who vote for this and the man who suggest it. You guys did a terrible job. I hope you're happy with writing with those small Turkish characters on your small screens.
