Hey +Fleksy, loving the keyboard! There's only one thing that's bothering me - Fleksy's correction algorithm can't seem to account for accidental extra letters at all. Sometimes, when I'm typing quickly, I'll accidentally tap a letter an extra time, and Fleksy always suggests a word with that number of letters (or, occassionally, with one more) even if it seems obvious what the word was intended to be. For example, try typing "theyy." At least on my phone, Fleksy tries to correct that to "thirty," which makes no sense; it only has half of the typed letters! Is there any way to tweak the algorithm so it does a better job of accounting for accidental double presses?

This is not a bug, more like a feature that's not there yet

There's a balance between under-correcting and over-correcting, as many of you have experienced.

No-one wants hello to be corrected to help and although this is a trivial example, it gets tougher to pick when you have helpo or even playes vs playsd vs playd.
Should we remove a letter, add one or simply correct?

We will add this feature, as soon as we know we will improve the overall experience. +Jeffrey Lowenstein

Hi +Chris Lacy​ - loving the new update! The customization on the top bar is fantastic, and really adds a lot to action launcher's usability. One request: could you make the touch target on the overflow button a bit bigger? Right now it seems to be very small - if I don't tap it dead center, it often launches voice command instead of opening the menu.

That'd be great. Thanks Chris!

Hi guys! Is there any chance of adding two-finger curve (i.e. swiping "more" by simultaneously swiping from m to o with one finger and from r to e with another finger)? There's a keyboard on the play store called Keymonk which does this - it used to be my absolute favorite keyboard and I've still never found a faster one, not even TouchPal. Unfortunately, development on Keymonk stopped in 2012 and I can't justify using it anymore. It'd be amazing to see this feature integrated into TouchPal, and would give it a real edge over competitors like Swype and Swiftkey. The google keyboard also supports this (poorly). You guys can try it there to see how much it can speed up typing - try swiping “example” or “maple” with one finger vs. with two.

Nintype is very interesting. But almost impossible to use.

No idea why, but as of today my keyboard won't do multi language prediction anymore. I have tried restarting my phone, checking and unchecking various languages settings, and uninstalling and re-installing the app, without success 😔 Please fix!

+Draven Zhou I can tell you right now that the prediction is much worse now than it was before.

I don't mind you doing additional internal tests, but please don't make us users cope with a bad version for the time being. +Michael Wong​

TouchPal has absolutely amazing prediction and swiping. The only thing I miss from Swiftkey is the ability to swipe a whole sentence without lifting my finger by swiping to the space bar between words. Any chance of adding this?

Could we get the option for a clock in the quickbar, maybe where the Google logo currently goes? I'm all about using Action Launcher to simplify my setup and let my wallpapers shine, and I'd love to be able to ditch my clock widget.

+Chris Lacy I know it might seem like overkill, but I'd really appreciate the option if it wouldn't be too difficult to implement. Sometimes I use very light wallpapers, which makes the status bar clock hard to see, but it would be much more visible in the Quickbar.

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful dinner here. The food was delicious - the homemade bleu cheese dressing is to die for. Prices are very reasonable and portions were generous. The two waitresses, Sherry and Debbie (one of the owners) were efficient, accommodating, and super friendly and welcoming. The service was exceptionally good. All in all, a great dining experience! Heartily recommended.
