    Am I the only one who thinks it is not only nice, it's also necessary to have a floating keyboard on the iPhone 6+ just like on the iPad? See screenshot 1 & 2

    To be honest if I don't have my right little finger always under my phone, then I couldn't write/type text on the 6+. The only exception is when I hold my phone almost flat, looking from above on the screen, e.g. when I'm in bed and don't have to hold it up.

    Most apps aren't optimized for the iPhone 6+, that's why the keyboard is very big in comparison to the optimized keyboard, as you can see in the screenshots 3 & 4

    If we could move the keyboard somewhere on the screen just like on the iPad then everything would be ok, but it's not possible. I hope there will be a jailbreak soon and a developer who's able to create a tweak which make this possible.

    So what do you think?

    I split the keyboard on my iPad because I like to type with my thumbs. I will do the same with my 6+. Anyway, as soon as I get my 6+, I will download the SwiftKey keyboard. It is my favorite keyboard and it has split layout to let me type with thumbs.

    That's right, it's easier to write with the thumbs on iPad. But you also shift/move the keyboard somewhere up and don't let it completely on the bottom of the screen.

    That's what I'm saying, we need to move the keyboard freely on the screen up/down.

    You should try SwiftKey. It allows you to split the keyboard and as far as I can remember, it sits at the bottom.....at least it was like that on my Android tablet a couple years ago and I hope they keep it that way for the iOS version. I cannot confirm that because my iPad 4 is still running iOS 7. I won't upgrade to iOS 8 until maybe a month later and all the bugs are fixed.

    Go ahead and give SwiftKey a try, you will love it.

    Thanks for your recommendation, I already have all keyboard installed, also SwiftKey.

    It's really one of my favorite keyboards, but it also have this problem, which is not their fault, it's just a limitation of apple, that keyboards can't be moved, they can just extend and be bigger than the stock keyboard.

    I would love to move the keyboard more up somewhere in the middle or a little bit below to write/type/swipe etc. Floating keyboard on iPhone 6+ like on the iPad-imageuploadedbytapatalk1411740547.998614.jpg
