    I use Swype. The only feature I want that's not on the stock keyboard is the swipe typing. AFAIK, Swype is the only one that gives that, so none of the others are even worth my time.

    All stock, all the time. I've yet to find a third party keyboard that I enjoy using more than the stock.

    Thank you for your input. You have given valid and interesting facts. I think there are great benefits to the use of all the 3rd party and stock keyboards. However, anyone would have to get use to using any of them if you're not familiar with them.

    How so? Have you tried SwiftKey? It's much smarter than the stock keyboard. It remembers your words and style much faster. I have 8 email addresses. I can type the first 2 characters of any one of them and the entire address shows in the middle predictive box. You can't do that with the stock keyboard. I've tried. I no longer need shortcuts. And I can delete individual non words from the predictive keyboard library. You can't do that with stock. Did I mention a dark keyboard? That low contrast stock keyboard is rough on my eyes.

    SwiftKey is free. You won't lose anything trying it out. I've used it since iOS 8.0.0. If you try it, give it a few days to pick up your words and style.

    Thanks, I'll do that! I have a BlackBerry Z10 right now which I believe has swiftkey on that and I love it

    I can understand that but you can turn off the reading and phrasing stuff. Don't be fearful of this. However, I'm not brave enough to use apple pay. I just pay the old fashion way.

    Apple Pay is actually safer then using your credit card without it. If you scan your card the information is saved on the stores servers there for if it gets hacked your info is. With Apple Pay your credit card company issues a key that the store can use once for your charge that key is then never able to be used again. Your actual credit card number is only stored on your credit card provider. Less chance to get hacked..

    Stock keyboard. I have tried the 3rd party keyboards and they just don't cut it. Swiftkey is my favorite keyboard on Android and if it worked as well as it does on Android I would use it, but it doesn't. Plus I actually like the stock iOS keyboard. I can actually type really well on it.
    Pretty much exactly my experience too, including the Swiftkey on Android part.
    Except the only difference is that I apparently have spanners for fingers as my typing on my phone sucks.

    Stock. I really wanted to like Fleksy but it wasn't what I expected. I am fast on the stock keyboard so stick with it. May try swiftkey again sometime.

    Oh well, the stock keyboard suits me anyway XD

    What you may have read was someone's opinion based on fear and ignorance. Developers like SwiftKey and Swype aren't out to swindle anyone. They have thousands of users, and I've not heard of one complaint concerning privacy issues.

    That's exactly my position. Although SwiftKey ought to be better for me since I am bi-lingual and it can use two languages at the same time, I gave up using it because iOS would routinely switch back to the default keyboard.

    Yeah probably. But that info is stocked somewhere, right?
    What happens in case of a breach/leak/hack?

    Stock primarily because 3rd party keyboards do not support voice dictation. That being said, if Swiftkey is better than stock in most other ways, I may have to give Swiftkey a try

    It won't switch back if you delete the stock keyboard along with the emoji keyboard, except for passwords.
