    I was on the Amazon app browsing using SwiftKey keyboard and all of sudden the app frozen and I couldn't do anything after letting it sit for about 5 minutes my screen turned all blue and the phone shut itself off. Then I presed the on button and did turn on. Kind of strange...reminded me of the android days...wasn't expecting this to happen on the iPhone 6.

    It happened a few weeks ago, one time. I don't remember what app I was using at the time.

    Has happened to me with third party keyboards. Don't use them anymore.

    I don't have any 3rd-party keyboards installed on my iPhone 6 Plus so I'm not experiencing any crashes. I restored my device as new last night during the Super Bowl game so I doubt I'll experience any crashes unless I install an app that's not up to par with iOS 8.1.3...

    Since iOS 8, I've had Safari freeze up. That was fixed in an update. The only other freeze up issue is with the messages app freezing up occasionally because of the 3rd party keyboards. I like using those keyboards, so I put up with it. Hopefully Apple will fix that soon.

    My messages app freezes all the time. Specifically when I send a picture text and come back to it, it is frozen and has to be swiped away and restarted. Drives me nuts.

    So I can assume that it was not the amazon app but SwiftKey that caused the crash. Is there a way to find out on the phone what caused the freeze.

    I did on Swiftkey. Removed it and hasn't happened since.

    I haven't known the keyboards to cause a crash. Just freeze ups. The freezing is an iOS 8 bug with 3rd party keyboards. I think Apple is aware of it and will eventually fix it. It's just not high on their priority list.

    Aye, with any other keyboard than Apple the device seems to be prone to freezes/crashes

    I had about 200 mb left on my HD, and every app was running slow. Every once in a while, something would freeze my iPhone 4 and I would have to turn off the phone and restart.

    I deleted a bunch of photos and it's worked fine since.

    Never froze completely. The odd bout of lag or an application crash maybe, but never an all out freeze. I tend to stay away from 3rd party keyboards though, so that might be the difference for me.

    It's been happening to me quite often and I don't like it. It's not just when using iMessage either. I had YouTube opened watching a video and the whole phone froze. I hope Apple fixes this issue.

    This used to happen with third party keyboards but it's been resolved for me since 8.1.3.

    Only issue is that sometimes the third party keyboard still disappears when I reenter an application.
