If they've done it for phones I'm sure they'll do it for ipads soon. Maybe taking longer because the android tab one has quite a few layouts to choose from.

Of course the feature and third party apps at the moment are in their early stages, but I think some good can definitely come from third part keyboard support - afrikaans support, etc.
Afrikaans support is pretty low on my list of must haves. The keyboard works, seemingly well, but I'm not seeing any benefit of using it.
It takes a bit for the advantage to kick in. The more I use it the more intuitive it gets to the point now where it predicts about half my words around 3 letters in.
Anyway I hear ios8 has a great new keyboard now (whereas the default on my s5 is a little basic for my wants). So whatever works best for you.
Having Afrikaans and English on at the same time is handy though in my case
I've tried swiftkey but tbh meh.
Having issues with swiftkey...
1. If I swipe down on my home screen the keyboard occasionally doesn't come up, this has also happened in a text message.
2. If I search in safari and the the thing I'm searching for doesn't come up then pressing the arrow doesn't press enter it makes a space... forcing me to tap the screen to select what I want to search, irritating.
Swype keyboard is free for a limited time only. Grab it now!
Thanks for the tip bruv; DL'ed yet. Yet to test it properly; is it better than SwiftKey in your opinion?
