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.

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.
