    I've been reading up on the most popular choses and I will still consider sticking with the new stock keyboard for iOS 8.

    But I am leaning towards Fleksy with its dark clean design
    Swype for me. I can't wait for it. One of the few things I like about Android is Swype. Makes emailing and texting so much better.

    I actually like the stock keyboard. I just wish the keys would reflect upper/lower case to show which you are in.

    I loved Google keyboard on my moto x and if that's ported over, I'll probably use that one

    Flesky isn't working for me. I still don't know how to use it, but I think when other devs release keyboards I will definitely try them out and then see which one I like best, although I am leaning towards SwiftKey

    That looked like one of the stock keyboards for a character-based language, possibly kanji

    Have being using iPhone since 2007 so I'm used to the stock keyboard. I'm one of those person who can type without looking so I think I will stick to the same.

    Those sticking with the stock keyboard.... have you ever used Swiftkey or Swipe?
    Yep. I've had a few Android devices, so I tried both. The stock keyboard usually picks up the way I type better than Swype or Swiftkey.

    Before writing off the new 3rd Party keyboards people should really give them a chance and more than for just a day. To use something like Swiftkey to its full potential you really need to learn and tweak the settings to make it best for you. Also you can have it scan Facebook, twitter, gmail, SMS, etc etc. and have them add all that content you have typed to your dictionary. After using it for about a week or a little longer it will pick up on your common words and phrases and really start knowing your predictions to the point that it is scary. Stock iOS keyboard is good and I have used it extensively, but it can't touch the predictions/customization on Swiftkey, if you are a fast typist on stock give Swiftkey a chance to learn and you will be even faster. Oh and cloud saving in Swiftkey is a nice feature too.

    I will test out some that come out, and whichever I like the best is which I will choose.

    I'm so used and comfortable with the stock keyboard and I won't try to fix what isn't broken. So I will still go with stock.

    I gave it a good try on Android & it just doesn't work that great for me. For emails its cool because I'm typing in a formal fashion but in my casual word, no. Maybe it just doesn't understand Patois or Creole but stock has proven to be much closer for me.
