    A good news, I have heard that famous SwiftKey is comming to iPhone very soon. But the problem is that it will be in the form of note taking app as Apple don't allow developers to change the core iOS apps. What do you guys say?

    I think Apple should just buy the company and bring its functionality into the native keyboard. Having a predictive keyboard that only works in 1 app is impractical and cumbersome.

    That's pretty much how a lot of these kinds of apps that offer an alternative keyboard or predictive technology or some sort of better text customizations or management end up working in iOS, given that there's really no other way for it to happen.

    Of other apps that do something of this nature? Sure:

    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/fleksy-happy-typing/id520337246?mt=8

    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/path-input-swype-keyboard/id618909051?mt=8

    There are various others that are similar in nature--essentially note types of apps that provide different keyboards and/or predictive typing and/or text customization/management that can then be copied/exported to another app (like Messages, Mail, etc.).

    My apologies. I thought you had inferred that Apple had bought some of these companies to incorporate into iOS. Sorry 'bout that.
