Same here! A bit laggy on the Retina mini when it's brought up but actually swiping is pretty fast and reliable. This was typed with Swype actually and this is probably my favorite feature on the new iOS. Too bad I can't use it on my iPhone yet. The buyer wants it with iOS 7 so I won't get to try it until I get my 6 Plus.
SwiftKey on the iPad is kinda pointless without swiping functionality. I deleted it and just kept Swype.
For people who have used both and prefer swift key, why? Is it only the predictive text that is better or is the swiping experience somehow better too? Does swift key have gesture input for question marks and other punctuation like Swype does?
Thanks for the update, that's good to know! I'm using both on iPad right now, but on my Android phone, I tended to prefer Swype. Planning to use both on Friday on my 6 Plus, and whichever behaves better, most likely I'll stick with it.
The two reasons I left iPhone for a Galaxy S3 two years ago are gone, and I'm thrilled. Bigger screen and ability to swipe on a keyboard? Oh yeah!
