Is anyone else using a different keyboard other than the original iOS keyboard? I'd like to try a new one but curious to know what others are using. I used to like Fleksy but it has since been removed from the App Store.

I used GBoard for awhile - Google's 3rd party keyboard. It isn't BAD but you can tell it has a TINY bit of lag that the stock one doesn't have. Still, the ability to search google from the keyboard is pretty cool (googling gifs to put in chats is super easy). I found the accuracy to be a little better than the stock keyboard too. Wallpapers and color theming are pretty sweet. However, that tiny bit of lag, especially on startup just kills it for me. So I'm back to stock.

SwiftKey is the keyboard I've been using for years. I love it so much and I've installed it on all my friends' iPhone :) Here in the Netherlands it's very common to use English words or short English phrases in a Dutch text and with SwiftKey you can use up to 3 languages at the same time without changing keyboard. It's true multilingual typing, I couldn't live without it.

I've been using "swipe" keyboarding for a few years on Android and couldn't deal with not having it on iOS so I quickly added Google's keyboard. It works so much better than the stock keyboard (and no lag). One thing I don't like is that voice input takes you to a secondary screen, then when you pause (long enough), it inserts your spoken text into the text field of whatever app you are in.

I was using gboard but now since experiencing 3D Touch I'm loving the features that brings to the default keyboard!
