Previous versions allowed me to use the phone's default keyboard, and switch languages by hitting the globe ico,n. With this version switching to Japanese also changes the English keyboard. I much prefer the system keyboard. Also on this phone I am able to add Japanese input using its built in capabilities, so I no longer really need this.

If you are only using this keyboard for Japanese, then it's great, but it you also want to use it for English, while it can be done, I don't recommend doing so. The predictive and correction text for English is horrible.

When I choose "Japanese" as a language setting, it always start with Japanese keyboard. I want the keyboard to be preset so that I can input alphabets as a default, though.
