New SkiftKey user here! :)
I've sent several suggestions via email through the "Feedback" channel, but wanted to share this one publicly in case anyone can offer potential solutions.
Many times, I'll be "flowing" (is that the right term?) and I see the right word in the prediction bar, then suddenly it switches to a completely different word, or it just never detects the correct word (for whatever reason).
I realize that part of this is user error (I feel like I'm learning a new language) but it's a bit of a pain to have to finish typing the word anyway, then hold backspace to delete and type the word over again.
Perhaps there could be some sort of "ABORT" option, such as flowing to the backspace key (even if you have to hold it for a moment) or possibly a quick spiral motion that prompts SwiftKey to start over on that one word. (Spiraling multiple times sometimes works but often results in a random word instead.)
It could also help if we had more than 3 word predictions to choose from, but that's an entirely different topic. (Other keyboards have a scrolling prediction bar, with approximately 10 options instead, but that's a discussion for a different thread.)
Any suggestions are welcome. I'm still learning, and open to new ideas. :)
