    i turned it on, but nowhere uses it. How do you get it to show up? I tried safari, gmail, google voice, and i only have the regular keyboard. I did see it once in an iphone only app. Does that mean we don't get this on ipad?

    It is on your iPad.

    I suppose you enabled the feature in your settings, in General - Keyboard.

    If you don't see it, tap and hold the key next to the numbers key at the left side of the keyboard, until the options appear. Predictive Text has a button next to it. If it's disabled, enable it.

    If works in every app that I've used so far.

    Do you use Swiftkey? Predictive in Settings - General only works for the default keyboard. If you want to have this feature for Swiftkey, open the app and go through the settings there: enable a language, ...
