Since I started using custom keyboards on iOS (I'm using SwiftKey) I get an intermittent problem whereby Messages freezes. Also, other apps sometimes can't access the keyboard at all.

Is this a recognised bug for iOS 8? Is there a known solution?


Solution? Use the Apple default keyboard.

3rd party keyboards can always have issues and it is up to the vendor to release updates to fix them.

You can post your issue at http://vip.swiftkey.net/index.php?/forum/705-ios-user-to-user-community-support/ and see if someone can help but more than likely you will need to wait for an update.

  • Thanks! So is it documented that problems like this are with the custom keyboards, rather than iOS? – Jim Jan 15 '15 at 19:56
  • Is it not documented but commonly known. Anything 3rd party always has the chance to break and have bugs. – ProfFrnswrth Jan 15 '15 at 20:01
