  1. Case change and shift options

    1) Four CASE CHANGE options would be HUGE!!!
    2) Lock for numerical alt characters...as in making quotes and 3 successive exclamations—" !!! "—easy breezy.

  2. Please add an ON/OFF-option for Keystroke Popups

    I like your Keyboard very much. It's close to perfect, even for me as a windows-pc user.
    But please, I would appreciate more options such as
    - on/off for keystroke popups (sorry, I hate them)

    One-handed mode is very important for iphone plus users. Please add.

  4. Smaller text on keys on ipad

    When using PadKeys on an iPad, it would be great, if there was a couple of options in 'preferences' to set the smaller size to text for the keys. Also, it would be great, if in addition to 'Long-press' access to 'shifted' symbols, the access was available by hold-swipe down, similar to the system iOS keyboard. This would make for a faster workflow. Thanks.

    We already offer swipe UP for access to shifted variant on the symbol keys. Are you saying you would like this on letters as well, or that you’d prefer down to up?

    As far as keycap font, we’ll offer a “small-label” theme if enough users are interested, just like the current “bold” theme provides a way to have bold keycaps.

  9. Simultaneous languages like Gboard

    I need at least 3 languages simultaneously. Can't use your app until this function is implemented!

  10. hold-and-drag-down to access shifted character

    GBoard (I think) recently released a feature where a key that produces a different character when shifted lets you access that alternate character by dragging down on the key. Now, this tends to conflict with your keyboard’s gesture-based typing (where you trace out words); but I think something reasonably close could be implemented by requiring the typist to hold the key as long as they have to in order to raise a popup menu; _then_, in order to access the shifted characer, they swipe down from there.

  12. 3 issues

    Love the idea of this, but PadKeys needs definite improvements. The number row is so short I'm constantly hitting letters below. Also, the spell check row is too short on height as well. So I look up and my sentence is jibberish. It would also help to have the most common suggestions in the center working outwards instead of to the left where it's harder to see and further away from where your eye naturally goes. Lastly, the delete button is funky. It needs to be a square not some "tetras shape" where I'm constantly getting a bracket symbol mixed…

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Please, when submitting a layout request, mention whether you are primarily using iPhone or iPad, and portrait or landscape mode. These are all different layouts! Thanks.

    As far as delete key on the iPad US English layout, if you are hitting the brackets, just use the “square” portion above there and ignore the lower limb :-) Seriously, we used the inverted L to make the largest and most edge-occupying key we could given other layout constraints. Making it smaller wouldn’t make it easier.

  13. iPhone: Move backspace to low position

    On the iPhone, move the backspace key to the first or second row like it is on the system keyboard.

    Hi, putting this idea on the forum so we can find out how many people prefer the backspace in one place or the other.

    Currently it is in the top row. GOOD because it’s like other (non-phone) keyboards and allows the punctuation keys to be in their normal places. BAD because it makes backspace harder to hit and the keyboard is harder to get used to from other phone keyboards.

    We could move it to the bottom row. GOOD because it’s like phone keyboards that people are used to, and allows the backspace to be easily hit. BAD because it’s different from standard keyboards and would move the punctuation keys to a strange, hard-to-hit place.

    If opinions are split we might consider making it an option, but options make the keyboard more complicated to configure (and many users never open Settings) and to maintain.

  15. Would love to have dual languages

    I always need both Danish and English - often mixed in the same letter, so hope that can be made, just like in swiftkey, with a choice of which keyboard yet with two dictionaries active

  16. Relocate the bracket and braces keys to some other location and make the backspace key wider

    The backspace key is not wde enough as has not been wide enough for quite some time, now.
    I am always accidentally hitting the closet bracket key all the time.
    Move the bracket/braces keys to some other location and make the backspace key wider

    In the latest release (4.2.2) we increased sensitivity at the edge of the keyboard, so it should be possible to tap more confidently away from the brackets and have the presses register. Hopefully this will reduce the chances of accidentally hitting the brackets.

  18. Add greek

    This is a super keyboard. I've tried several looking for one that is both responsive and intelligently designed --- including tab key, number now and cursor keys.

    It would be very nice to have Greek as a language option.

  20. Word suggestions: arrange around center rather than from left

    Put predictive words working out left and right from the center rather than all the way to the left. One's eyes will naturally look to the center more readily when typing.
