    Might be a stupid question but how does this differ from Apple's new keyboard?
    SwiftKey learns better from how you word things resulting in better predictions. Also, the flow/swipe typing is just really awesome and faster than pecking. It is free so give it a try and see if you like it.

    Swype is available in the app store. Really tempted to try it out but kinda waiting for user reviews first.
    I downloaded while waiting for my son to exit his high school and get in the car. The Swype app works quite well on my iPhone 5. In fact, I'm replying via the Swype keyboard...

    I've found it glitchy. Couldn't get any keyboard to come up in Safari although that only happened once. It's not as fluid when rising up as the stock keyboard. Otherwise it looks and works great as a keyboard. I'm even typing this reply right using it right now now. Will take some time to get used too.

    Still no help until we can also use Siri with the keyboard. Having to switch out of Swiftkey to use Siri in iMessage is a deal breaker.

    I'm download the Swiftkey keyboard now, but it's downloading at a snail's pace.

    Not surprised since a ton of people are probably hitting apple servers to update their IOS device. Finding the App store in whole kinda slow. right now.

    I ended up pausing it momentarily to get it to speed up.

    Can someone explain Swiftkey vs Swype? This thread has mentions of both.

    Swiftkey specializes in predictive text and includes a swype-like feature called Swiftkey Flow. Swype specializes in ease of use in regard to communicating via the keyboard by sliding from letter to letter.

    I'm typing this on SwiftKey now. I had it when I was on Android and had forgotten about it! Awesome. So far, so good.

    Only took me 5 seconds to download and install via wifi. Have not seen a delay.

    I didn't know swipe style typing was something people still loved. Goes to show how out of the loop I got after a while out of Android land. It's not my personal cup of tea but I can see the appeal - I just find it slows me down a loooooooooooot.

    I'm disappointed that I don't see a row of numbers.

    It is still quite a familiar interface to use, though. The iPhone SwiftKey keyboard is just a touch on the tall side for me - probably will be a non issue on a 6 or 6 Plus but on a 5 the extra couple pixels SwiftKey takes may or may not be an acceptable compromise. I myself will use it on my iPad and will out it on my 6 Plus when it arrives but will probably just use the native keyboard on my 5 in the interim.

    None of the third party keyboards are working on my lockscreen when quick replying to a message. Anybody else have this issue?

    NO WAY am I every giving Swiftkey or any other developer the right to read everything I type on my iPhone keyboard. But that is exactly what Swiftkey wants from me by asking for full access. All of my emails I type with it, all of my credit card info, all of my private communications.

    No way. Swiftkey has already been deleted. Too bad. I've been excited to use this app again.

    I'm loving SwiftKey too. Find the predictions to be much better than the stock keyboard.

    Same here. I have my phone set to not require a passcode within 5 minutes, and they do work in that time interval. I hope this is a bug and not a feature.

    EDIT: Just submitted a bug report.

    I already have 3 keyboards installed. Fleksy and SwiftKey are my favorites so far. I wish they offered the mic for voice dictation.

    Has anyone checked out the Swiftkey options? I just got home and am still downloading iOS 8--are there any long press options? Are the arrows available like on Android? From Swiftkey's web site it doesn't look any different than Apple's keyboard. I'm hoping there are options for numbers, arrows, etc...I'm hoping it's as good as the Android version.

    Anyone find the options?

    Yeah, I'm wondering why Swiftkey doesn't have the voice option.

    After trying SwiftKey I might uninstall it it annoys me more than the default keyboard.

    I sense an in-app purchase coming for that feature.
