  1. Escape from ?!,. popup without selecting one of these

    I sometimes select the ?!,. key by mistake and there doesn't seem to be anyway to get out of it without selecting one of these characters, which I then have to delete. Maybe add a blank space on the left and that closes the popup without entering any character.

  4. Enable it to use space without lifting

    One thing that really needs to be included is the ability to keep swiping onto another word after swiping to space. Going from one word to another is annoying because of the inability to swipe to the space key without it being unsuccessful.

  5. Alternative word bug

    Using an iPhone 6s on IOS 9.3.2 when I go back to change a word I typed in the chrome browser and the cursor is at the beginning of the word, selecting an alternative suggestion cause the app to freeze and chrome to crash.

  6. Ability to change the order of text formatting icons

    I use Bold Italic and Underline much, much more than I ever would some of the other buttons. I’d like to be able to tap and hold and drag the icons around to change their order.

  7. Predictive word suggestions should be based on typing history.

    I type several phrases regularly and the keyboard has never made word suggestions on them. Example "leaving now": I type this every day and "now" is never suggested after entering "leaving".

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. Auto correct is horrid

    There are so many things wrong with the auto correct I don't even know where to begin. There is a VERY annoying bug when swiping and typing that the key board inserts the first letter of the work you're typing, then adds a space and then the full word. What the heck?! I have deleted my dictionary that I CANNOT see (why can't I see what I'm deleting?). Still did not fix the issue. I've deleted and reinstalled...problem persists.

    This "solution" Microsoft has come up with for curse words that NO ONE wants is ridiculous. Forcing the user to type…

  11. 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?

  12. Cross platform usage like swift key

    Ability to link to contacts email etc and also save words so logging in on a new device gives access to previously built up dictionary. Also prediction isn't a good as swift key. Doesn't seem to remember email addresses or commonly used phrases.

  13. Can't install on iPad 3 even though App Store description says it works on iPads

    Doesn't even show-up for installing via the App Store on my iPad 3. Description in the App Store says it works with both iPhones and iPads. My iPad is running iOS 9.3.2.

  14. 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.

    hacking on this idea  ·  Alisher responded

    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!

  16. Create ipad version of keyboard

    To take advantage of the added real estate of the larger screen. Perhaps could add more symbols, dedicated number row, etc.

    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.

  17. Multiple keyboards as called for in apps

    When an app calls for other keyboards, IE decimal/numeric/internet keyboard, should bring up the correct keyboard as the default ios keyboard does.

  18. Bring 'Auto Correction' ON/OFF toggle switch to Quick Setting

    In the Keyboard Quick Setting where you can change settings inside the keyboard there is not toggle switch to On/Off the "Auto Correction"

    Since it's common for people to switch "Auto Correction", it needs to be in 'Quick Setting' for easy accessing.

    It can get replaced with "Auto Capitalization" which is no need to be in quick setting since people rarely on/off it.

  19. 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!

    We’ll definitely take a look at making secondary characters easier to input. Thank you!

  20. Needs keyboard macros

    Would hit it out of the ballpark if there was a way to store keyboard macros with the keyboard. Nintype can do this, I haven't seen other keyboards able to do this (TextExpander doesn't count as it doesn't have a swipe mode).
