 I promise, you'll like having the option of using custom keyboards  I know some people want to paint the feature in a really negative light because android has been doing this for awhile, but it's no skin off our back or Apple's to open up this feature as an option. It doesn't mean the Apple keyboard is crap, or that android is better. It just means you have more flexibility than you did in iOS7.
 Famously, remember the Sega Saturn and Sega Dreamcast. The Saturn was the kinda the first dual core console on the market, running two Hitachi SH-2 processors plus dual GPU's. Sega had to write a whole series of proprietary tools to interface directly to the hardware to get the most performance from the system. The coders at the time had no idea how to get the most out of the hardware and it showed in the games.  For the Dreamcast it featured the option to use the same...
Looks interesting, and certainly novel, but not something I would be interested in buying.
 Agreed.  You have no idea what you are talking about. There are not "gestures" per say. You are spelling the word without pecking. In return Swiftkey and Swype will return the most common words that fit your motions and work in tandem with a learning algorithm that will also supply words you use the most, or begin phrases you use frequently.  If you are illiterate, Swiftkey won't work all that well.
 The Apple keyboard is very good. About the only feature it is missing is learning and predictive selection. That's probably what I am most looking forward to in iOS 8. With Swiftkey I can damn near type an entire paragraph with barely typing a couple of words. It just knows the words and phrases I am most likely to use and it populates them accordingly.
 It is correct. Swiftkey is my daily driver and I switch off between pecking and swiping depending on what I am doing, and how much I need to type. You don't need to disable the swiping function to have dual input types either. You can, but it isn't necessary.
 You're wrong. Swiftkey supports pecking and swiping at all times. So no, it doesn't force you to type one handed. You can peck two handed if you choose to.  What makes you think you won't be able to with a custom keyboard?  See my above answer.
  Many of us are certainly hoping so. But we've been down this road before... "Apple will never do a plastic iPhone. The 5C rumors can't possibly be true" "Apple will never do an iPad Mini. Steve Jobs said what the ideal size was." "Apple will never do a larger screen iPhone. 3.5" is perfect" "iOS is never going to have a file system or custom keyboards. It doesn't need it" ...etc...etc...
I would be in for this.   Especially if the size is in the same ballpark as the G3 and S5, which replaced my iPhone 5S two months ago.  
It's a feature I use often of my S5. Having it in iOS would be appreciated.   You'd end up using it more often than you think.
