Many prayers were answered on Monday, when Apple announced that iOS 8 would support third party keyboards. That means you folks complaining that Swype doesn't work on iPhone, don't need to complain anymore. This, in addition to the new native keyboard functionality means that typing on iOS device just got a lot better.
It is worth noting, however, that third party keyboards have been around a while—sort of. SwiftKey appeared in iOS 7 earlier this year, though it was inside of a note-taking app. The new update means that you can take your keyboard of choice anywhere in the operating system now, and that is a beautiful thing.
