iOS 3rd Party Keyboards

As it’s well known by now, with iOS 8 Apple has opened up to 3rd party keyboards. However, I’ve always thought iOS’s standard system keyboard works just fine. Still, it was interesting to see how a different keyboard worked.

In the past, I have tried both Swype and Swyft on Android. I liked them for the swiping feature. Then Android incorporated that feature for its own standard system keyboard and I stopped using those 3rd party keyboards.

Now I wanted to see whether I would like it on iOS. So I installed the free Swyft app and used it for about 4 text messages. That was all I needed to know I didn’t like it.

I knew what I’ve known before: iOS’s standard system keyboard is just fine.
