    How long since you tried SwiftKey? It's a lot better now.
    You've told me that before, lol. The last time we had this discussion, you told me to try it again, I did but I still didn't like it. That's ok. I wouldn't mind learning Swipe, though, but not if Swiftkey is still buggy. I can wait.

    What sort of bug do you experience with SwiftKey?

    It freezes all the time, it switches languages when I don't tell it to, it's a royal PITA.

    WOW, sorry to hear that you're having these problems. My Verizon 128gb Space Gray iPhone 6 Plus has accepted SwftKey with very postive results.
    Did you do a "Hard Reset" after downloading, I always do that since my BlackBerry days.... It's a habit that I never got rid of.

    I did but it didn't help. That's ok: I find that the stock keyboard suits my needs just fine.

    You never know about apps. The sound effects on my Words With Friends app won't work unless I swipe it out of the multitasking tray. Works for others.?

    I find Fleksy to be a great keyboard alternative. Coming off of a BlackBerry, the Fleksy's swipe left to delete a word is exactly what I'm used to, so it's a great alternative for me. Can be a little glitchy at times, but not so much that it stops me from using it.

    is there a keyboard app that allows adding a numeric row at the top of the keypad? i'm not caring much for the iphone keyboard on this two day old 6 plus. i'm trying swiftkey right now and it won't even let me capitalize the first word in a sentence.

    Hit the arrow on the left side to get caps on SwiftKey.

    Double tap the arrow for all caps.

    Did that previously and got no caps, now I have caps. Go figure! Oh well, working now and thanks for the response, but I am still looking for a keyboard that will give me a numeric top row.

    For numeric top row, tap the numbered key bottom left.

    OK, I know I can get a numeric top row on the symbols keyboard but I use them regularly and want it on the top row of the qwerty board. I have that on my third party S6 keyboard but I can't find one that offers that on this iPhone.

    This is my main gripe with the keyboard apps on iOS. None that I've tried have the keyboard at the top. You have to press the number key to bring it up

    Would either of you be willing to settle for the number keys to be super-imposed over the top row of letters? If so, the Swype keyboard offers this. It may break your rhythm in typing, so I don't know if you would like this. Also, the numbers are invisible in the iOS version of Swype, so you would have to know which numbers are above which letters.

    I haven't tried Skype in a long time so I'd be willing to give it a try

    Go to Settings > General > Keyboard. Press and hold the globe button on the bottom to the left of the space bar. Choose the keyboard that you want.

    You can just tap the globe to switch from one keyboard to another. But yeah, there's no other way other than removing all other keyboards.

    Not everytime, once you set which keyboard you want to use the iPhone uses that keyboard unless you're typing in important information then it automatically reverts back to the Apple stock keyboard. I'm currently using three different keyboards. I find that SwiftKey is the smartest when it comes to predictable text.

    I have started using Swype for both my iPad and iPhone and I really like it. I had used it before when iOS first had the capability to use third party keyboards. But it was a little buggy then. Now, with the improvements it's a lot better. I really like using it. And on the iPhone 6, it's really nice using it while typing with one hand.

    Well, I'm back with SwiftKey and Apple Stock keyboards. I've tried several different types of keyboards and these two just work for me and the way I use my iPhone. SwiftKey has to be the smartest predictable of all the keyboards I've tried.
