I'm curious how many have tried third party keyboards for the Ipad and if so, how you feel about them. I have tried free Swiftkey and bought Swype to try. Swiftkey may be a bit better than the native Apple keyboard as predictive and corrective on the Ipad but I admit I tend to just use the native new Apple predictive keyboard with the predictive words dropped so I don't see them since I am both a fast touch typist on the screen and a good speller and the predictive part actually slows me down, However, others may like Swiftkey as it appears to me it does a good job. Gestures are not available on the Ipad, whereas they are on the Iphone (i.e., swiping) I tried Swype on the ipad first and found it pretty easy to use (though I have yet to watch the tute on capitalization and punctuation LOL) BUT there is too much arm movement to suit me on the Ipad. I rather like it on the 5S where I had been using the mic on the keyboard when I could so I didn't have to type. So, in the end I'm using the native Apple keyboard and deleted all third party keyboards from my Ipad Air. I do occasionally use my Apple BT keyboard or the keyboard mic which is very nice now to use with the text appearing as you speak.
