  1. Hello, I just had an idea about something I had to think about a long ago and everytime I switch a theme, I trip on that idea again. The themes are are shown in the category 'galery' (=all) and the ones that were downloaded. The section of my themes should have a little setting to change the order of the shown list. It would be great to switch between 'mostly used', 'latest download' and 'recomended'. Mostly used: Should list themes first that have been used ofen Latest: should list themes in order of the time it was download (so new ones are shown first to remember them, most people download new themes at once but can't find the latest ones in the long list). Recommend: should list themes that look close to the style of themes that were used ofen or could be a good choice in context of the theme that is used at the moment. What do you think about this, dear community? Do you feel the same or have some other ideas that could be useful for next developmene steps? Rick

    Creating your own keyboard theme?

    Hello, nice news about the own themes.. Maybe it could help to solve this by let the user select a own picture that SwiftKey is using as background by overwork it in a automatic process of making it look good. Maybe something like diffrent colors to select or some other animations? The animations of iOS are really nice - why not using this thought here with the photo effects? I guess this could be what customers want. It is really hard to make a own theme - colors and design are not easy to handle for lots of users. The import of a own picture could make that easier in combination with some effects. Google uses a picture upload in their Keyboard. But since the picture is used as it is without effects, it is nothing special about it. The effects of animations or color filters would be a good idea. What do you think?
