    I know a lot of people were hoping for keyboard choices (e.g., directional arrows and numbers on the first keyboard page), but it doesn't look like the now OS has added any options. Is that right and if so are there any keyboard apps that can change the design of the keyboard?

    I can hardly believe they haven't done something about the cr&ppy keyboard. It is ridiculous that we still have to flip between 3 screens to get all the characters/symbols, and there aren't any arrow keys... :mad:

    So I guess that means nothing was done - that's really ridiculous. I just don't understand why they can't add it as an option.

    What is even more surprising is that with the advances in keyboard technology on Android like grammar based prediction (SwiftKey) and pattern based typing (Swype) that Apple hasn't made any changes to the iOS keyboard at all. In technology if you stand still you fall behind. Apple needs to start making some changes, or open the platform up to third party developers.

    I read on Swype forums that they approached Apple with their product before and were told no thanks by Apple

    seems like a cydia app someone should invest time into. i have an app that corrects the case on the keyboard. if they can access that and change it, it seems like the keyboard could be altered and replaced. i dunno.

    i come from android as a background so no experience with the iOS sdk from any perspective, root access or otherwise.

    I have two alternative keyboards that I found in the app store
    V12 Keyboard and Radial
    One appears to be a proof of concept and the other has the ability to move what you type into an email message
    But if these can be made and make it into the app store someone should be able to make a real replacement for the soft keyboard
    There might not be enough apps with the hooks necessary to accept the input from an alternate source
