    I have used it in the past and did not see a noticeable decrease in battery.

    Use it for a few days then you can go to Settings > Battery and see if it is using up more or less than you think.

    Not that I can tell! I've been using it as my default keyboard for over a year.

    I have found that if you disable/delete your default apple keyboard, it doesn't crash at all, have you tried that ?

    I have my stock keyboard deleted. SwiftKey as well as other 3rd party keyboards work better that way.

    That is entirely a matter of opinion. Some say yes, some say no.

    I personally think it's just different to the Apple keyboard. No better, no worse.

    I use it for my nativ language auto correction, because it's fast to click on a button and automatically correct. But is laggy, when i put iPhone into landscape.

    I think SwiftKey has a better memory. It's smarter. And it has nice features like the option to delete non words from the predictive keyboard library. But others like the stock better. I also like the dark keyboard.

    Didn't even realize you could delete the "stock" keyboard. And why doesn't it give you the option to make the keyboard physically bigger like it does on Android? I love Swiftkey but mostly for the option to make the keyboard larger.

    It is bigger on the 6s Plus, and in landscape mode. You can delete the stock English keyboard, but it still comes up for entering passwords and such. But it's still a lot better. I also deleted the stock emoji keyboard. SwiftKey has it's own emoji keyboard.
