    Microsoft has rolled out Word Flow for iOS, allowing those with an iPhone or iPad at hand to install the company's keyboard. Previously available in testing phases, this handy keyboard app will enable you to take advantage of various features, including one-handed mode.

    I may give it a test run just to see what the hype's about, but seriously, I'm content with the native keyboard app...

    Same here. Now if BB rolls out their BB10 keyboard, I'd use it for sure. I loved that keyboard.

    Time will tell if Blackberry will roll out the BB10 keyboard for use in iOS. Still, I hope it does. We'll see...

    I started using it yesterday. It's ok. The predictive text isn't nearly as good as the stock keyboard. Also, no mic for dictation so that kind of stinks. I'll keep using it for a few days to see ...

    Not very loud sound from keys. No option to have the line of numbers on the top of letters.

    None of the 3rd party keyboards have the mic. Apple won't allow it.

    I tested it out briefly and found it to be 'okay'. There wasn't anything about it that made me go "WOW" or anything. I've since deleted it from my device. I may give it another shot.

    I know, but one can hope. I definitely don't feel as accurate with this keyboard. It probably won't be long before I switch back.

    I've tested it against SwiftKey, and SwiftKey performed much better with memory. The keyboard looks cool with a custom image though.

    I like it, the ability to type on the 6s+ one handed is very nice.

    This thing rocks! SwiftKey is absolute garbage in comparison.

    My problem with swiftkey is that it never pops up for emails. I tried again last night and got same results. I don't even get the globe to change it in an email. It works ok other places.

    That's odd. Do all 3rd party keyboards do that?
    Actually, that sounds like something with your email server. I haven't heard of it with any other SwiftKey users. I frequent the SwiftKey VIP forum.
    Are you using the stock Mail app? Some clients may have disabled 3rd party keyboards. Google disabled them in the Chrome browser.

    I gave it a try, nice idea, give them props for execution. However, for the same 2 reasons I dumped Swiftkey, I dumped this as well.

    1) As mentioned above, no mic button (and yes I know Apple doesn't allow access)

    2) I use the 3D Touch/Force Touch trackpad function in the stock keyboard multiple times a day. It's finally become second nature for me; instead stretching my thumb up to move the cursor, the muscle memory now automatically hard presses the keyboard. It's become a great time saver for me.

    Exchange for work. Gmail and yahoo for personal. It may be exchange now that I think about it.
