    Did you like the keyboard on iOS 6? As the 5c was my first iPhone, I never experienced it. I found a tweak called Vintage. It lets me use the iOS 6 keyboard in light or dark. It even lets you set different keyboards for each app so you can go back to modern in some apps!

    So what do you think? Did you like the iOS 6 keyboard or do you prefer the iOS 7 one (or iOS 8 if you've got it)?

    I think the iOS 6 one looks really nice in dark! Especially in junction with a fifth row tweak.

    Funny, I don't recall those symbols being at the top on the iOS 6 keyboard. But I like that one in "Dark". Can we have a dark iOS 6 SwiftKey keyboard? I think that's what I want!

    They weren't. She has a tweak that puts Another row of keys.


    OT: I didn't like iOS 6, but I think the keyboard was decent.

    I really like the dark iOS 6 keyboard. It's one of my favorites out of all of the keyboard styles. I still like the iOS 7 keyboard a little more though

    I actually love the iOS7 keyboard because it's lighter. I think I like the clean look of just the letters on it too.

    I would prefer the current iOS7 keyboard. That's just me though.

    You know, I've never paid close enough attention to distinguish between the two, other than the associated iOS theme. Having said that, I basically like them the same, I suppose....

    I wasn't around for iOS 6. Guess I'm enjoying some "Vintage-ness"! LOL

    I got my iPhone 5 in April of 2013 so I had iOS 6 for a few months before iOS 7 was released.

    I prefer the keyboard on iOS 7, I just feel like I make less typos than I did with the iOS 6 keyboard.

    I like the "vintage" keyboard look of iOS6 especially the bottom "floating dock" (shelf look). Since this is my first iPhone (5s), I never had a chance to experience it. I kinda wish we could go backwards and customize without jailbreaking

    Now vintage would be the original keyboard from the OG iPhone. I like the iOS 7/8 keyboard more than the older versions mainly because I like the design better.

    I care not for either keyboards. Once swiftkey/flesky are released on iOS I will most likely never touch apples keyboard again!

    I prefer either one. The only difference between the 2 is the design. They work the same.

    I am excited for Swype. I've always loved that keyboard. I've got a keyboard like that on my JB iPad but it's too buggy to use on my phone to be honest.

    It must take practice. I tried an app that had it, and I just got flustered with it. I do like SwiftKey. I may reinstall that app and play with it some before iOS 8 rolls out. I think it is called Fleksy. I use the SwiftKey Notes app some for long emails and blogs. Not practical for short stuff.

    I've had Swype on pretty much every Android I've owned. Even used JB variants on my iDevices. It works well if you've got small hands.

    I concur. iOS6 keyboard looks just SO old. iOS7 is great, iOS8 keyboard tops it off with the predictive typing enhancement. I don't think any third party keyboard will sway me, I tried swype and I'm just way faster with the standard keyboard.

    Hahaha I really thought I'm the only one who thinks like that... but when Ryan Petrich released the tweak to enable iOS 6 keyboard to iOS 7 OS I was sure I'm definitely not the only one

    BUT I just like the black iOS 6 keyboard, so installing Bloard was must

    Now I use Activator and Bloard together. From 6am to 6pm my keyboard is light (white) and from 6pm to 6am it's dark (black). Just set a scheduled event to turn Bloard on/off
