    I'm guessing there haven't been any 3rd party keyboards released yet?

    Nope - Apple wouldn't allow them in the app store.

    Well Fleksy said they'd be releasing a beta for people using the iOS 8 beta and signed up on their website so there must be a way that they can be downloaded without the App Store, although I don't think anyone has made one yet.

    Probably the same as beta testing any other app.

    Yea I'm talking about people on the beta. Fleksy says they have their keyboard on iOS 8 but it just hasn't been released yet. It looks like swiftkey also has sign ups on their website.

    Yessssss :D

    I love SwiftKey!

    Lots of companies make sweeping promises about their software and it doesn't always deliver, but SwiftKey is absolutely amazing. I can type so fast on that keyboard.

    Yea I'm surprised swiftkey wasn't bought by apple or google yet. It's probably the best keyboard on android right now.

    When Flesky and the others release their keyboards. They're not going to be free and may go for up to $9.99 or more. So when you get one be site it's the one with the features you want

    Reason why I'm mentioning this us I've read where people are thinking third party keyboards are going to be free

    I doubt they'll be free (the good ones other than Google keyboard on Android aren't all free either), but I very much doubt they'll be $9.99 a piece.
