    I can't get any third-party keyboards to work on my iPad Mini Retina. They always glitch out. I've tried adding and removing them from settings, reinstalling them from the App Store, and rebooting my device several times. No matter what I've done they don't work. For instance, Flesky is just blank. SwiftKey shows a blank keyboard frame. There is no way to switch between keyboards unless I use them one at a time using settings, and I have to remove them all to get the default keyboard back. Has anyone found a way around this problem?

    I'm reading about enough little issues with the third party keyboards that I'm going to give Apple's new keyboard a chance first. It's definitely improved. However I have to get used to the new workflow of typing the first few letters of something then hitting the auto-suggest item at the top. I'm getting there.

    In a month or two after the first iOS patch and some updates to these third party keyboard apps, I may come back and give them a try.
