3rd party keyboards are behaving all goofy right now. I'm waiting for 8.1 for a possible fix.I love Swiftkey but am tired of keyboard failing to appear when I select text box in messages, or emails, or search, or wherever!! If only way is to use stock keyboard... then so be it. Very disappointing.
It's not. I'm on 8.1 and with the new swiftykey update it still isn't even close to good. Messages still don't scroll up and it takes forever to appear. Honestly, third party keyboards are useless right now.ditto on the entire 3rd party keyboard experience. hopefully this will be fixed with 8.1 in a few days.
Yes... I've done this too. Or found an app that the keyboard worked in and then went back to where I was. But seriously... that's ridiculous to have to do that several times a day. And the auto correct on stock is insane (as mentioned earlier in this thread).I really like SwiftKey and have those issues occasionally. Not enough to deter me. I found that when I have those issues, if I go into settings and remove is full access and give it back, it starts working properly again.
In some cases this could be resolved by making your 3th party keyboard the primary keyboard above the Apple keyboard. See also the instruction in the general 3th party keyboard topic.3rd party keyboards are behaving all goofy right now. I'm waiting for 8.1 for a possible fix.
1. Keyboard will not appear at all
You'd think this would work in theory. I went one step further and removed the primary english keyboard and emoji keyboard and left only Swype and it still behaves that way.
Maybe Apple will release iOS8.1 later today and that should resolve a few bugs related to 3rd party keyboards. See for details the TS of the general 3rd party keyboard topic.Tried out a bunch and unfortunately have experienced all of the bugs mentioned here. Back to using stock for now. I am really hoping that this will be fixed though. I miss swpe to type. So much faster for me and easier on the bigger screen devices.
Keyboards are not as "bad" as you say, and that's not how it works, you have to wait for the apps to get updated for 8.1, only then you can say they are as bad.
It's not the apps that are flawed. It's the framework Apple provided. The apps are doing what they're supposed to do. iOS isn't. Apple needs to fix the framework. The apps don't have to update so long as Apple fixes this properly.Correct. Remember, we are needing updates for both iOS and the keyboards.
