Do you think the keyboard is not responsive enough sometimes?

I find myself hitting keys multiple times frequently and often think I typed something only to look up and see an incomplete word with letters missing. It is particularly bad on message boards.

I didn't notice it initially but the more proficient I've become with the touch screen keyboard the slower I've noticed it is.

I feel like there should be a way to increase keyboard sensitivity.

Very yes. I've been an ardent critic of the iOS keyboard. Unresponsive and missed keys are just some of the shortcomings of the keyboard. One need only look at the plethora of "Damn You iPhone AutoCorrection!" websites to see this is one area the phone does not "just work."

I'm really hoping iOS 6 changes this...

Its crazy when I initially got the phone it seemed unbelievably good, it has really gotten old pretty rapidly. I hope iOS 6 gives me that fresh feeling again

Nothing on the keyboard during the iOS 6 keynote.

... I can't believe it. I am really hoping they just didn't feel like mentioning it. I can't believe Apple still thinks the iOS keyboard is acceptable.

My issue is the keyboard not always catching up with my keystrokes. So funny - it lags as much as when you'd type on an old ram-starved PC!:p

Isn't that the same thing we're talking about?

I love the iOS keyboard! It's like Nutella when compared to the ICS stock keyboard.
I've never had an issues with the iOS keyboard on the iPad or 4s. I do remember on the 3G it being hilariously unresponsive occasionally.

It could better, but there are much worse keyboards out there.

Oh, yeah... didn't read your last sentence. I just notice the keyboard lag - all of the words I type in are complete with no skipped letters (that's pretty odd, though!)
