I'm quite happy with the increase in Jolla keyboard function since I started using it in v.2.14. Obviously, there is still a way to go, and this may be already on the agenda, but it never hurts to put it out there... - Text suggestions at the top of the keyboard work pretty well, but they don't show up in many situations. Maybe they could be there all the time, whenever there's typing? also... - Space automatically inserted after selecting a word is nice, but then if you need to add a comma, etc., the comma hangs in empty space, unless you backspace back to the end of the word. Maybe it could sense punctuation input, and move it back a space automatically ...

Plus one for auto-correcting punctuations. I'm not so sure about enabling suggestions everywhere. URLs etc. shouldn't use suggestions, at least not with the normal dictionary and formatting. Were there any other situations you thought of?

On my Jolla Phone it already does the auto-move punctuation, not in Android apps though but that has already demanded earlier IIRC.

Concerning text prediction: one more scenario where it's not needed is a correctly recognised email text field but generally yes, it should be available almost everywhere.

@luen - I haven't kept specific note of all situations. I feel in general that it doesn't offer suggestions more than it does. I would feel like even in url search bars that it would be a good idea, since most browsers these days don't sepatate the url and search functions, but just auto-detect... I'll pay attention more and find some specifics
