    Apple has announced that with the release of iOS 8 we will have the ability to use system wide customized keyboards provided by developers. For example, this means that if Swype chooses to provide it,fans of Swype will be able use it with anything requiring a keyboard input.

    As the ios rowing up, I see Apple incorporating Jailbreak tweaks more, iOS7 being one good exemple. Anyway, I welcome that addition to iOS 8

    They've incorporated the Quick Reply feature that works for almost all messaging apps as well, which is definitely a plus if you multitask a lot on your phone. I believe the feature still holds true for the iPad, haven't had a chance to get the beta firmware on any of my devices with the bogged speeds from Apple.

    It would be great if SwiftKey becomes fully workable sometime in the future, SwiftKey for IOS is very limited at the moment, It really is THE best keyboard out there.

    All the new changes for iOS 8 will be exciting to see. I have something similar to swype on my kindle and find it very handy. :)

    That would be pretty stupid to decline to port your app to the enormous ios market.
