    I like how the keyboard for Android L looks and hope you can make a theme from it.

    • Choose if number pad is on left or right (numbers, symbols, numeric keyboard)

      Move the number pad back to the left, or have the option to choose.

          To resize your keyboard, long-press/press the settings key→tap ‘Resize’→choose your desired size and press OK once happy.

          See our video here for additional information: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BghHHPX1cQU

          (*If SwiftKey is installed on a tablet, you can tap the key directly to the right of the 123 key to access settings.)

        • I'd like an option to hide the SwiftKey emoji button

          I always hit it by mistake when texting since the enter/emoji is swapped. Not to mention it makes a brief lag spike when pressed while texting and on rare occasions crashes the app.

            In SwiftKey’s Layout settings, you can fill the tickbox next to “Enter Key” and the emoji/smiley panel will be accessed via a longpress of the key.

              In your device’s main settings, please enter Language & Input → Google Voice Typing → Settings. From there, make sure that the “Hide offensive words” does not have a tickbox filled next to it.

                  Hello,

                  This feature should still be there. Since we introduced the cloud in order to personalize from any service you need to sign into the cloud.

                  If you are still not able to personalize from SMS, please let me know in the comments.

                    Hi,

                    if you want to delete words from predictions, when you see it come up in the prediction bar, longpress it and select ‘no’ when it asks you if you want that word predicted again.

                  • Georgian qwerty keyboard

                    It would be great if existing Georgian keyboard could be changed to Georgian qwerty keyboard as its most used keyboard in Georgia. I don't use it a lot but when I do it takes some time for me to find required letter. I could possibly help you with the language layout. Not many Georgians will vote for this but I'm hoping it can be done by swift key team. Thanking you in advance.

                      Hello,

                      We wanted to announce that we have added a Georgian QWERTY layout.

                      Please go into SwiftKey Settings > languages > update the language pack if needed > tap on the mini white keyboard and select the new layout.

                      Cheers,

                      Ryan

                    • Add possibility for different language layout on keyboard

                      I'm using English as default language setting on my Android mobile but I would like to get Norwegian layout on the SwiftKey keyboard. This works great on Google Keyboard where you can have a different keyboard layout than the default OS setting.

                      Please add this functionality to SwiftKey.

                        • please make it possible to write without capitalising the first letter after you finish a sentense with a point or if you make a few dots...

                          Hi there! please make it possible to write without capitalising the first letter after you finish a sentense with a "." or if you start a new one!
                          Thanks so much!

                          PS: the only keyboard app that allows that is smart keyboard (which is my main app now) but I would use swift key only if that is an option!

                                Hi,

                                You can currently undock the keyboard. Open SwiftKey > longpress the 123 key > undock. You can move it just far enough from the bottom so you don’t hit the any extra keys.

                              • Keyboard Size Option

                                With the newest update the option to change the size of the keyboard in both landscape and portrait modes has disappeared. I would rather have that screen real estate to see what I am working on that look at a humongous keyboard. Please bring this option back.

                                  • When typing a word after perioid, do not automatically capitalize the first letter if precede by a number. for entering dates in dd. mm.

                                    After entering a date like 1.4. The next letter is in caps. The first letter of a word should not be in caps if preceded by a number. There could be a setting for disabling this.
