  1. Automatically switch to Incognito in Edge private mode

    While I am opening a new tab in private mode of the browser, make the swiftkey to switch to incognito and back to normal when we exit from private mode.

      • Bing integration

        The Swiftkey keyboard is really nice and intelligent. But an integration with Bing will surely make it much better. Like if Bing is embedded, we can just search for a movie, a restaurant, a cafe or a city or about a plant and send it directly to the person whom I am chatting with. Please guys vote it so the devs can take a look.

        • Tab key

          Please add a tab key as a gesture with flow even? Or just an option to add a tab button on the main qwerty keyboard! Be so nice for organization, business, school. Instead of going through 3 pages for it!

          • Drag to rearrange pinned clipboard items

            It would be great to be able to manually drag pinned clipboard items to rearrange them. I think this should only be in the full screen 'edit mode' and not the 'in-keyboard' clipboard view.

            • Clipboard: A 'clear-all' button!

              A clear-all button which clears all unpinned clipboard items. It would include a short-lived undo button just like when manually swiping an item away, and it should appear in both the 'in-keyboard' and full screen 'edit mode' clipboard views.

              • Top bar Auto-hide

                A setting to automatically collapse the new top bar after inserting a sticker, pasting an item from the clipboard, or whenever the client keyboard is minimised via the swipe-down gesture or back button.

                    • Tap and hold spacebar should bring up the Change keyboard menu.

                      Most Android keyboards allow holding the spacebar to bring up the keyboard switching menu. I find this very handy for some of the other keyboards I use from time to time.

                        • Simplified Chinese with two keyboard layout as default. Example I want to use both pinyin and handwriting when using the keyboard

                          It would be good if I can access pinyin and handwriting keyboard for Simplified chinese. As now I can only use one or the other

                            • Nuke emoji

                              While millions of them want to get cute with their words, some of them deeply despise opening the gif/emoji menu by mistake. My opinion of a massively popular keyboard replacement app is about feeding both sides. It's like arms trade; power to annihilate nations at your edge of your fingers with Twitter or an official document typed on the phone. We are the users, too. Feed us this, the option to prevent unsolicited cuteness.

                                  • I'd love to have comma instead of a dot next to the spacebar. Double space can be used for a dot so it doesn't really need its own button.

                                    There are languages (for example Hungarian) where comma is much more often used than in english. It's super inconvenient to have to use the long press period - swipe to comma method to insert a comma.
                                    The dot is not a problem though - just double clicking the spacebar inserts a dot, so it's kind of illogical to give the dot a button of its own.
                                    It would be nice to at least have the possibility to customise this button from the settings.

                                    • Accented characters for some themes

                                      Some themes on SwiftKey do not show accented characters on the keyboard but they exist. You have to click on the '123' button or do 'Trial and Error' by long pressing on any of the keys. Instead, SwiftKey should provide an option for such themes whether the user wants it to show accented characters with the letters on the actual keyboard or not.

                                          The number pad is a waste of space, and at the very least needs an option to be removed. I got SwiftKey for the languages, but the original keyboard for my phone was much better with character management (no number pad).
