    Honestly, I think this is an individual problem. Maybe you need to exercise.

    We had to wait years to get copy, cut and paste for iOS. Apple couldn't have just done it? It was obsurd. Swype has been out forever.

    iOS is for you.

    and then I'd have to constantly remember what each shortcut means.

    Sure you could do it that way, but this is more manageable.

    This is too anecdotal. Your argument here is basically "I had to! That means that my case applies to EVERYBODY!".

    I have a Galaxy S4, and for the longest time I just used the stock keyboard. I switched to 3rd party a few times, and now that I have the GPe ROM installed, I constantly switch between using the stock Google keyboard or the LG G3 keyboard. I haven't nor need to use a different keyboard. I still use the stock Google keyboard constantly. If I were present my argument as you have presented yours, then my argument would basically be "Since I don't have to use a 3rd party keyboard, NOBODY has to ever use a third-party keyboard".

    Or we can look at the file manager situation. In all my years of having Android, since 2012, I've NEVER had to have a file manager. I've had friends who have been on Android for YEARS who have never even touched a file manager. I have one installed because sometimes I like to go make custom modifications to files myself, but most of those modifications I can do through apps that do the work for you, or I could just wirelessly manage the file system or just do it via USB on my computer.

    You already claim that Apple's keyboard already does enough for you, so then why are you upset that others can choose? Since I jailbroke in iOS 7 and installed iSwipe, I've come to rely on it for one handed use. Apple's stock keyboard doesn't come with that automatically. It never has. It's not something that I absolutely have to have to be able to use my phone and I could live without it, but now that iOS 8 lets me choose my keyboard, I can now get the features I want that Apple has yet to provide.

    Also 1 hour = $100? Really? I doubt anyone is really that important that 1 hour is a $100 loss/gain.

    You're taking all of this way too close to home. It's a giant anecdotal argument, which are never good.

    Slide to unlock.

    I'm guessing that Apple will not allow 3rd party keyboards to be used on the lock/unlock screen. If Apple does allow them here then keyboards such as this one will need to think of security. i.e. can people pull up important blocks of your text without even unlocking your phone?

    For me, I just use Apple shortcuts. Can't remember them all? Don't load in 20 at once. Load in 3, get used to using them, as you find your self repeating text, create a new shortcut.

    Actually, I had the Motorola Droid before I got the iPhone 4 on Verizon. So, yes, I know what the android devices are. They are not good.

    Well you seem very objective. My Android phone is "not good." I wish I'd known this whole time.

    The main thing that kills android devices are its own devices. There are too many! The fragmentation is horrible... X has OS this Y has OS that.. every phone has a different OS and ruins the experience.
