There are several usability problems. 1. It is not possible to add a language for multilingual input without also adding an additional keyboard layout. I am using 4 languages that could be combined into 2 layouts, but when switching I have to cycle through 4 layouts for no good reason. 2. It's difficult to access special characters. Long press on the letters should add various special characters just like it works with numbers in the first row.

Overall very good. But themes are hard to view when typing. And swipe gesture trail is so fat and opaque that it covers the keys, making it hard to see what I want to write. Could learn some things from OpenBoard, which does a lot of things very well, including the appearance of the keyboard for ease of typing. Thank you for your efforts, developers and all.

[ Edit: this bug seems to be resolved, so I'll increase my rating a bit, but it was very annoying ] I've used this keyboard for years and loved it, but recently it's picked up a weird behaviour where if you swipe a word and then type one letter, it appends the letter to the word instead of starting a new word. It seems a bit mixed when it does this, but "and I" always becomes "Andi", and "if I" always becomes "ifi" which then autocorrects itself to "if". It's awful to work with.
