    I hear some apps still have the old keyboard in IOS7. Should Apple offer a keyboard choice like Android? :)

    Definitely, they should just put android on all iOS devices with a secret switch to change over.

    Only the apps built into iOS 7 will have the new keyboard. Developers cannot release updates with the new API's until iOS 7 is publicly released in the fall.

    I just told him that in another thread, he's just trolling MacRumors.

    He created a thread asking how to close his account 2 days ago and then changed his mind and created 6 new thread in one day, and all the threads have the word "Android" in them.

    It seems they can already take on a iOS 7 style though. Check out Pixter Scanner app.
    (It does have the old keyboard though.)

    Apps will probably be able to choice whether have a black or white keyboard, but not the old keyboard. ;)

    Space bar vs. .com button

    The most annoying aspect of the new keyboard is having to retrain our muscle memory. When in safari I press the ".com" 80% of the time when I'm trying to press the space bar. I've submitted feedback on this issue. The width of the "Go" button should be reduced leaving more width for the Space bar.

    Anyone else frustrated by this?

    I don't see what is "wrong" with Apple's keyboard; it's simple, un-cluttered and extremely accurate. Why does one need more keyboards? Not exactly a complaint that was even discussed until Android rolled around and introduced "open" and "choice" (AKA, "we can't guarantee our product is good enough, so here's some others to try - we cannot be bothered - it's good enough")

    I'm guessing they just need to recompile the code into iOS7 compatibility, assuming no other UI changes.
