    Whenever I use swfitkey and start entering login information it will change to the Apple default key as soon as I enter in password field. After multiple restores I still have the same issue. WTF, I thought Apple fixed this problem? I feel like Apple is forcing me to use their crappy swiftkey clone over the real deal. Anybody still experiencing this?

    I thought it was a safety measure with passwords since swift records user info

    The keyboard changes to the apple one so the password locker can be used. Think the wording is wrong in the update notes.

    I think what it means by "deselected" is after you would input a password with the Apple keyboard it would make that keyboard the default eliminating your prior choice. Now after I put in a password it still has Swype as my default keyboard when I use it for something else.

    This is deliberate - for any secure input fields like a password input box, the keyboard will always be the built-in Apple one for security reasons

    Yes but Apple are much more concerned with security than Samsung are.

    If you go and find the Apple developer notes for third party keyboards you'll find an explanation there.

    ----------

    Here you go, straight from Apple's developer documentation.

    There are certain text input objects that your custom keyboard is not eligible to type into. First is any secure text input object. Such an object is defined by its secureTextEntry property being set to YES and is distinguished by presenting typed characters as dots.

    When a user taps in a secure text input object, the system temporarily replaces your custom keyboard with the system keyboard. When the user then taps in a nonsecure text input object, your keyboard automatically resumes.

    Because Android's security is crap, you got that right.

    looks like im just going to use Apple's keyboard, scum bag way Apple, not everybody wants to use your crappy apps. So Apple hinders third party apps, making them cumbersome to use.

    Forget that it doesn't work on purpose in some instances...

    The 3rd party keyboards are still very buggy in 8.0.2, or at least Fleksy is, which was my favorite by far. I re-installed it after 8.0.2 and just last night, I tried to do a Spotlight search and nothing, it was as if the keyboard popped up but there were no keys displayed, just a gray area. I couldn't even go to the Apple keyboard since there was no little globe or anything to press to switch. Had to uninstall the app and then the Apple keyboard worked again.

    What the update is referring to is sometimes the third-party keyboard would become unselected after using your passcode to unlock your phone (ie waking it from sleep). Unfortunately, it's still happening in 8.0.2. Still needs work.
