As is well known, from Wednesday iPhone and iPad owners were able to update their devices to the operating system iOS 8. This user does not have long to wait for the first side of the keyboard that gained support in the new version of the mobile operating system.


IOS-device owners can install Swype, Fleksy for $ 1 or free SwiftKey – these keyboards are very popular on the platform Android. Finally, iOS users were able to choose the best input method rather than using only built a new keyboard QuickType.

Several great desire of users to test alternative ways of entering text, demonstrates the company’s statistics Nuance, which develops Swype. During the first day since the release in the App Store its keypad downloaded more than one million members.

Swype has become extremely popular with the ability to input not only taps into separate virtual keys, but also through gestures, when a user conducts a finger on the first letter of the word to all subsequent. Nuance is also very proud of its system to predict the next word.


As in the case of Android-one, SwiftKey umneet during operation: if the keyboard does not understand certain words, the user can add them. In this case, it is immediately able to load the settings from the cloud, which may be useful to owners iOS- and Android-devices.

It should be noted that currently the third-party keyboard in iOS 8 do not work everywhere. For example, when entering a password is always displayed a standard keyboard (apparently for security reasons).
