Don't know how long it'll last, so grab it while you can if interested :)

I've heard it's not ready for the prime time yet, still glitchy? Thoughts?

I haven't actually tried it myself; just "bought" it so that it's on my account. I'll give it a go at some point...

As far as I know, it can only be done through iTunes (or of course on the phone itself).

I've been using it since iOS 8 went public.  It works really well.  There's the very odd occasion where it will go completely non-responsive but just swipe the affected app closed (usually iMessage) and reopen it and it works fine again.

I purchased it when iOS first came out but just couldn't deal with flicking between the different keyboards; in such a habit of swapping across to the numbers etc.
Maybe will give it another go if I got a bigger screen device rather than the 5S

I just removed all the other keyboards, no flicking required.

I've installed it and it works far better than swift key. Really impressed with it

Man, third party keyboards on iOS are super janky. Swype less so than SwiftKey, but I'm glad I didn't have to pay for either of them - thanks for the heads up on Swype being free.

Can only get better from here, mind you - the stock keyboard is so vastly improved in iOS 8 that I'm not missing Android's options as much as I thought I would.

I disabled Swype the other day just to see how my workflow has changed and OH BOY typing normally on the keyboard is a pain in the butt!  Swype all the way!
