  1. Better quick editing feature/ cursor control

    Wordflow needs a better quick editing feature. Sort of like the iOS keyboard allows you to move the cursor with force touch. Moving up to select the word in a text box makes this keyboard a lot more time consuming then the standard one.

      In the latest version, we implemented 3D touch based cursor control. We recognize this only works on the latest iPhone models, and will keep the feature for non-3D touch enabled iPhones on our backlogs. if you use 3D touch, let us know what you think!

      • +word to dictionary, edit dictionary

        Please offer an option to add words to the catalogue directly. Like on Windows phone this could be done by suggesting to add newly typed words with a + in front of them. This gives the user very good control and confidence in the saved words. (I.e. Make it an option to only add new words in this way.)

        Also, Please allow us to remove specific words from the my words catalogue. Nuking the complete catalogue is often a bit beyond the intention.

        • Windows Phone 8/8.1/10 Keyboard Layout

          Give the option of having the ENTIRE keyboard replaced by the Windows Phone 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10 keyboard. I sincerely miss the keyboard layout from my Lumia 920/1520/950. I'm not a fan of the static iPhone keyboard. Would be nice to have that classic Windows Phone layout available.

          (Merged) The way letters pop out above your finger to confirm what you've typed is one of the things that make the Word Flow keyboard so great on Windows Phone. The iOS version completely misses that key aspect, and instead uses a terrible "ripple in the water" effect.

          (Merged)…

          • Punctuation Gesture

            On most iOS keyboards and the Windows Phone one, you can quickly enter punctuation by pressing down on the "123" key, sliding your finger to the desired symbol, and releasing your finger over it. Please look into adding this to the iOS version. Thanks!

                  After taking a quick look, it seems that we are limited by iOS from doing this. We’ll see if there’s a way to work around the limitation, but can’t promise much at this stage.

                  • Dedicated Comma Key

                    The dedicated comma key to the left of the spacebar on Windows Phone was something I used very often. Please bring it to the iOS version too. Perhaps create an option to have the globe icon be a comma, and then long pressing that brings up the menu?

                      I'd like to see an option to change the 'shadow' of where your finger was to a (not dotted) line. Purely cosmetic, but an much more calm design.

                          • Better ability to enter secondary characters

                            So far I really like the keyboard (pardon the pun) flow. It’s nice and smooth.
                            Some requests: emulate double key functionality of the Swype keyboard, where a long press brings up a context menu to select a secondary character, such as the number the key uses in number mode. Alternately, emulate Google’s Android keyboard where the character key opens up all the secondary characters, not just comma, exclamation point, and question mark. Keep up the good work!

                                  Word Flow already works on keyboard, but it’s fair to say that we could be more creative about how to us the larger real estate. We’ll definitely keep this on our radar as we go through our backlog of things we want to add/improve. Thank you.

                                  A an avid fan of the Garage … I’d like to suggest creating Word Flow for Windows. It would make touch like great for tablets, touch PCs, and even mousers.

                                  • Improve touch target accuracy

                                    The autocorrect is really atrocious as well as the touch target input. It is too literal and does a horrible job correcting mistakes. It needs to be greatly improved. There is not a single third party keyboard as accurate as the stock iOS keyboard. This also applies to all third party keyboards on Android. They may have better or far better prediction but the input needs a ton of work to even be on the same level as the stock iOS keyboard. Please work on improvements to not only the targeting system but also the autocorrect.

                                        For inputs which can only be numbers, display a number pad, or at least open directly to the symbols tab

                                        • Paste Key in Suggestion Bar

                                          On Windows Phone, you can drag the suggestion bar to the right to uncover a dedicated paste key. It would be nice to have that added here, espcially since pasting text isn't always easy in iOS.
