I really like this keyboard in fact it is one of the first things I must have when setting up a new device. All though I must say I am disappointed in the lack of ability to do much with the appearance of the keyboard it's self on your device. Such as being combatable with style themes or appearance packages. I like to snazzy up the look of my phone and I change it often but my keyboard stays the same boring look. Yes there is a few colors to choose from and some landscape backgrounds "BORING".

I don't understand how the app behaves worse over time. One thing it's started doing lately is not picking up spaces between small words when using swipe. So "be a" comes out "beat" and "is a" comes out "isa." More annoyingly, voice to text just... Doesn't work most of the time. My internet is fine and it will just stop recording in the middle of a sentence, even though the mic is still on. I can only speak a few words at a time. It's infuriating.

Toggle to turn OFF saving screenshots to clipboard doesn't work. When swipe-texting, you don't need to hit the space to start a new word, you just lift up – great! But if the next word you type is a single letter (e.g. "be a"), it'll put that letter at the end of the previous word ("bea"), and sometimes it'll autocorrect that to something else ("beat") so you have to backspace even more in order to correct. Needs an option to switch from long-press to double-tap in order to select a single word.
