  1. slide/drag/flick type gestures on keys

    Apple keyboard uses vertical slide down on key taps e.g. to access symbols. would be great if you could do similar and go one better -- vertical upwards should do CAPS. on cursor keys it could do prev/next word without the annoying need for option key use.

    ...or even one vertical direction for prev word and the other for prev sentence?! vertical cursor movement would be better but I understand Apple don't give access.

        The problem you mention is an annoying one. But I’m not sure about solving it by taking up a slot on the suggestions row for (typed) or “typed” every time there is an auto-suggestion. The constant presence of that item is one of the things I hate about other keyboards. Is there any other way we could address this issue?
