    I haven't had lock ups or issues with SwiftKey on my Air2 or 5s. What kind of issues are you having Zero?

    Locks up all the time. Most of the time in messaging. Which is where I want it to work fast so away it went.

    I had been having a lot of freeze ups in the Messages app while using 3rd party keyboards. But that's slowed way down. I enjoy SwiftKey too much to be concerned with a few freezes. I love being able to type the first 2 characters of my email address and the entire email address shows in the center predictive box. The stock keyboard was always messing me up. If I typed the wrong letter, a whole email address would be entered. It must have come from shortcuts. But I hated it. SwiftKey doesn't do that.

    See to me I think it's easier to just type then always stopping to click on the predictive type. Don't know it seems to take me longer to use it rather then typing.

    I don't really bother with them on the iPad since the keyboard is so big.

    Also just got done listening to the iMore podcast with all them agreeing about the lacking third party keyboards.

    I'm kinda sad to report, that since getting my Gold iPad Air2, my iPhone 5s has actually turned into just a phone....especially when I'm at home.

    I'm really starting to get the hang of swipe texting. I really like the predictive engine in SwiftKey.

    It does, but enters a space after which needs to be erased. Is there a way to turn off it adding a space?

    I used Fleksy a lot and I really liked it but there were a few times (even with the most recent update) that the keyboard wouldn't show up in the Messages app and I had to kill the app before it would show back up. And with the Messages banner, I'd swipe down to quick reply and the keyboard never showed up. It's a great keyboard but I would rather have the phone work correctly, all the time.

    It doesn't add a space if it's been entered correctly. You can delete the one with the space from the predictive dictionary by long pressing the box. Like this. I'm pressing the word out. Then start over. You may have to type your entire email address several times to get it right. Delete mistakes.

    I'm using SwiftKey keyboard on my 6plus. It's VERY smooth and predictable text is extremely accurate. I really like it.

    I tried Swiftkey several times but I find it glitchy. I like the stock keyboard just fine.

    How long since you tried SwiftKey? It's a lot better now.

    A couple of months ago when it was first released, I did also, but now after a few updates and with a new iPhone, I'm not having any problems what so ever. It's very smooth and the predictive text is extremly accurate.
