    When will we finally get to customize the domain names?? I use @sbcglobal.net which is a pain to type

    • BigTimmay

      Just curious. Why not switch to Gmail?

      • rcro

        Don’t know about him, but why should anyone be forced to switch emails for functionality? I know the only reason I have a gmail is because I have to for the Play store and android in general. I don’t even like the app. Can’t even delete email from the drop down menu. Archive only? Makes no sense.

  • Andrei Boboc

    please add more themes

  • effApple

    please bring back the .com key!

    • rcro

      a majority didn’t want it. Was a big feature request to ditch it. The proper thing to do was make it a check box feature if you wanted it or not. But of course that won’t happen. They’re not big on giving you options.

  • Phil Shobo

    how about it being the default keyboard on startup? how was the beta able to be the default but not this?

  • Cees Bierkens

    Please please, can you ad the cursors as in SwiftKey mobile into the SwiftKey tablet to and also the.com button. I’m missing these items in SwiftKey tablet.
    Thanks, and i love you’re app. I recommend it everybody who wants a smart keyboard. Keep up the good work.

    • rcro

      They don’t care. This and other major improvements like a dedicated number row have been ignored. They don’t even respond in their forum or on twitter. I don’t know where this innovating they speak of is coming from.

  • Eion

    Still waiting for new keyboard click sounds.

  • elinho

    Integrate Emojii….

  • Thomas Ellingsen

    I want it to complete my email address. Can it do that now?

  • rcro

    Still no dedicated number row. Still no nav keys on the tablet. Still a giant text box in landscape. Still can’t correct words properly when in the middle of them. And the list goes on. Meanwhile people whine about themes and clicks sounds and you appease them more than people that actually want a more functional keyboard. Sad people pay full price for this app.

  • Assaf Rapoport

    when filling the “to” field while writing an email on Gmail app, if the keyboard is set on Herbrew, the whole row of the spacebar and the predictions bar is gone! completely! so you can’t change the language unless you move the cursor to a different field, change the language and then go back to the “to” field. what the??
