    I like touch keyboard and have been using TouchPal for a long time. After PB3 download today, the touchpal does not show up. Worse the default keyboard does not show up either, so had to remove touchPal and then default shows up.

    Once I enable touchpal, the keyboard disappears on every app including webpage or messages app.

    Anyone have issues with keyboards?

    I had to remove the Touchpal to get the stock keyboard show up on apps. It not, I just see an empty space with no keyboard.

    I guess we are guinea pigs for their lack of testing.

    Same for me. On App Store, the keyboard would show up for searches on some tabs but not others. Have the issue with Notes as well. Tried filling in the Feedback assistant and couldn't populate one of the required fields due to this issue.

    You have to treat 3rd party keyboards just like any other app on the appstore. Devs have to update them to work properly on iOS 9.

    What lack of testing? You DO know that iOS 9 is in beta and you and anyone who installed it are testing it. And it's not up to Apple to make 3rd party apps work. That's up to the 3rd party app developer to fix things when their app breaks from a new OS.

    It affects the stock keyboard too provided you have 3rd party keyboards installed.

    Okay here's where the problem might be. The new beta adds this new keyboard toolbar with text format options/ paste options to all keyboards. That might conflict with third party toolbars, which some keyboards might have.

    I really hope apple sticks with this change as that toolbar is reliable and consistent like iOS is expected to be. Which means it's up to developers right now.
    And one of the perks of the toolbar? All keyboards animate on open/close ;)

    The newly updated FancyKey is absolutely brilliant on this latest beta

    Some/none of the 3rd party keyboards will work properly as they are equipped to function smoothly on iOS 9 beta. When iOS 9 officially releases next month, popular keyboards such as swift..etc will update their apps for iOS 9.
