    • Remove the Number Pad

      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).

          • Better Kyrgyz Language Support

            The keyboard layout for the Kyrgyz language is based, as it is in standard computer keyboards, on the Russian layout (with an option to change it to the phonetic Russian keyboard layout).
            This makes it difficult to use the swipe function to spell words with unique Kyrgyz characters (ү, ө, ң) while relatively unused Russian characters take up valuable real estate (ц, щ, ъ especially). Would it be possible to switch out some of the Russian characters with Kyrgyz ones to better enable swiping? Maybe as a third layout option?
            Thanks!

              • Include on Amazon Appstore

                All of the threads I see here related to the Kindle Fire or Amazon suggest that Swiftkey isn't available for these tablets because Amazon doesn't support changing the input methods on their forked version of Android. However, I recently acquired a 7th Gen Kindle Fire HD 8, and I'm able to change input methods with no issues. While typing, you simply select the keyboard icon that appears in the lower right of the screen and choose an alternate installed keyboard (e.g.- Fleksy). I use Swiftkey on all of my other devices but this one and would love to be able…

                    • Eth (ð, Ð), dyet (đ) and thorn (Þ, þ)

                      I'd love to see the ability to type eth (ð, Ð), dyet (đ, capital dyet is the same as capital eth) and thorn (Þ, þ) on the apple version of swiftkey by long-pressing a similar letter such as "d" and "p" letters, respectively, instead of having to change the keyboard language each time I need those letters.
                      Thank you!

                      • Add option to enable dedicated Globe button

                        It's good to have ability for dedicated Globe button since sliding space takes a lot more time than just pressing button. Really, it is proved solution already!

                          • SwiftKey needs support for agglutinative languages - does not understand compound words, case endings and other suffixes

                            SwiftKey not functional for agglutinative languages - does not understand compound words, case endings and other suffixes

                            Please add support for compound words, case endings and other suffixes.

                            Swiftkey is fantastic and works great when typing in English. But is not at all that good with agglutinative languages which use case endings instead of prepositions. Thus, SwiftKey needs different logic to improve its handling of compound words and endings. This is particularly important with Finnish, Estonian and Hungarian languages.

                            Typing in English is fast and comfortable, but typing in Finnish kinda works at times, but it is lousy to deal…

                            • Include hiphenized verb forms in the portuguese dictionary

                              There are lots of very common verb+pronoun combinations that are not included by default in the Portuguese dictionary -- for example, "encontra-me" (meet me), "trá-lo" (bring it), etc.

                              These are standard verb conjugations that are used in day-to-day conversation, so there's no reason that one would have to introduce them manually in the personal dictionary (especially since the hyphen can only be inserted by changing into numbers/symbols mode).

                              Please include all standard verb forms for at least the most common verbs.

                              • I'd prefer if the three options at the top are for my pesent word rather than my next word. Or at least an option to do so.

                                Or at the very least, when Swiftkey has predicted the wrong word, it would be handy if one click on the delete key would delete the whole wrong word and not just the last character of it.

                                  Swiftkey would predict my pattern of typing much better if it could connect to my Hotmail account. Is there a particular reason why it only connects with Gmail?

                                    • When you hold down the full stop key, why on earth are a full stop and comma an option when they already have their own key???

                                      I really can't understand why when you hold the full stop key down, the full stop and comma are options. There's absolutely no point in it, if anything it's an annoyance. If I wanted a full stop, I'd just press it and let go and if I wanted a comma, I'd just press the comma key to the left of the space bar. It would be so much more simpler if when you held it down, you then just towards the left for the exclamation mark and to the right for the question mark.

                                      • Please add support for plural possessive and s'

                                        I would like to have Swiftkey suggest or at least remember words that have plural possessive or possessive forms of words that end in the letter "s".

                                        Example #1: I am going to my parents' house for dinner tonight.
                                        Example #1: I'd like to be in an octopus' garden with you.
