Is there something like a keyboard section in the app store now? I think there should be, I didn't see it in the GM.

It's in there. I followed them on Twitter. So I used the link they tweeted out to everyone just now. I am actually using it to type as we speak.

One of the many "features" that Android users loved to criticize Apple users about....and now that its available, hardly anyone will use it, just like on Android.

I don't know if that will work. Cause I am on my phone. But that's the link they tweeted.

This is actually true. I bet less than 5% of iOS users will be able to figure out how to change the keyboard.

Haha. My Android friend was always bugging me about how I can't get swype (I actually do like it). But when I say "Hey I'll get to have Swype now" I hear more about how Apple is years behind Android blahblah. Like I would've given up iOS and my whole laptop/ipad/iphone ecosystem for what's just a sort of cool keyboard gimmick.

So how about you develop a keyboard and give it away free then..

I'm guessing that for some reason the GM version cannot see Swype! I have the GM as well and could not find it in the APP store for the device I had to locate and purchase it in Itunes on my PC!

Must be a GM bug or issue!
