Hello, iOS 8, and hello, third-party keyboards!
SwiftKey has quickly become the most widely used third-party keyboard for iOS, and for good reason. It has creepily accurate predictive capabilities, and it gets better the more you use it. When you start typing, SwiftKey suggests the word or phrase it thinks you want to say next, displaying up to three predictions in a word bank directly under the text box. With common phrases, it will even predict the next few words before you even start typing.
You can also customize shortcuts and link it to your Facebook or Google accounts so it can learn your natural language even faster. Once you get used to SwiftKey’s look, you’ll learn to love it.
