    Your voice isn't necessarily the "collective", but I find it extremely humorous that for the past few years, people have complained about not being able to switch from the stock keyboard, to right now, not but a little over an hour from the announcement, complaining about the introduction of changeable keyboards.

    Keep the stock keyboard. Don't change it. That's the solution. You do realize that, correct?

    Seriously. What is this with "I don't like options"--don't use them, that's why they are optional.

    The keyboard is not fine...another row for numbers without pushing shift was a main reason for my JB. This will fix that.

    So you are annoyed that other people now have options available?

    Apparently they'll give us the option to switch back to the Pre iOS 7 keyboard. This makes me happy.

    I dont understand what the issue is. If you don't like the optional keyboards then don't use them?

    and LMAO at mods removing my previous post

    Sooo, errrmm, don't use the custom keyboards. Does having options annoy you that much? Don't ever buy a house or a car, you get many options there, you would lose it completely.

    LOL why is this even an issue?

    I'm not a fan of murdering people.
    So guess what I do?
    I don't murder people!
    It's still an option though...

    All I want is a keyboard that is exactly the same as the real iOS one but dark

    One of the great harsh realizations of my life was realizing that these people are all around us. Lots of them end up in various positions in the power structure/government.

    Actually, that's almost true since so many sites force app store to load it in your face over and over again.

    This forum needs a troll sweeper I swear. How the heck do you complain about a feature you have no intention of using? :rolleyes:

    I tend to agree with the OP. The beauty of iOS is Apple makes the best choices for consumers and delivers the perfect experience every time. If you start opening things up to developers who don't care passionately about perfection and delighting consumers in every possible way, you start degrading the overall richness of the iOS experience. Apple needs to tread carefully here.

    People can still use the native/stock keyboard and other pieces/apps. Those who try out other ones and if they are not to their liking/standard can also return to the native/stock as well.

    Yes of course technically it's possible to go back. But how many people will be capable doing it after having the fantastic idea of trying one of these alternative experiences? At best you'll be taking phone calls from confused family members wondering what they did and how they can change it back to the way it was.

    The elegancy of simplicity is on the path to being lost here. That's why I say Apple needs to tread carefully in trying to satisfy the cravings of the relatively modest numbers of power users.

    If they can figure out what a third party keyboard even is and how to install one, they should be able to figure out how to change to a different one (including going back to the native/stock one).

    Apple does what it thinks is best and then some people are happy. The Apple keyboard is absolutely not perfection (people are confused by whether the shift key is on!) and very basic in functionality compared to what some are doing with touch keyboards.
