    I thought this was swift key at the bottom or is it predictive texting
    SwiftKey is predictive text. IOS 8 uses predictive text by default. But it's not SwiftKey. SwiftKey has a black keyboard and offers Swipe usage as well. You have to download the SwiftKey app to get it. It's free. Here's what SwiftKey looks like:

    Has what yet? Other than color, the SwiftKey app version also offers the Swype style if you like that. There are several 3rd party apps that offer a keyboard. Some are not free. They're all a little different.

    SwiftKey will remember words you use and your writing style. After a while, it gets eerie how it seems to know what you're about to type.

    Is it just me, but there is a second of lag if swiftkey is default, and you want to type?

    That's one of the things I really liked about it. A shame it will only integrate with Facebook or G+, neither of which I use. The Android version which I use as the default keyboard on my HTC can learn from SMS, Twitter and other email addresses too. Also, the iOS version doesn't yet have voice integration.

    I feel this is a great first run at it by the Swiftkey people and hope they will be able to develop it to be more in line with the Android version in time.
