Can you add the apple Dictation microphone button to the Swype keyboard? It would be nice to be able to access this from the Swype keyboard without having to switch keyboards. Thanks.

Hello there,

We would love to provide users the ability to use our voice dictation, but currently the microphone is not available for keyboard extensions in iOS 8.

Perhaps in the future!

Thanks

Since that's not possible, how about making it easier to switch keyboards? Right now, the globe key is buried, so it takes longer to get to the main keyboard, which has dictation.

I agree with this. Also, please swap the number button and the globe submenu button because they are the opposite order as the Apple keyboard which makes the user have to keep switching back and forth when cycling through keyboards. Maybe this order worked on Android but it is the opposite on iOS.
