Last Week’s Listener Feedback Question
Fleksy's Predictive Touch Keyboard with Gestures Now Available to All iOS Developers The question is this. Is this the start of a 3rd party keyboard movement on iOS? Will Apple open up new API’s to support 3rd party virtual keyboards? Or will this all end up going nowhere?
Nick posts: Nope, I like the Apple one. I have learned over the years that unless it’s the actual product all your getting is someone’s second crap hahaha
@BundesBarber tweets: @clayrussell @iOSDocked I would love to see Smart Keyboard Pro on iOS.
@m4lmx tweets: @clayrussell @iOSDocked yes! I would love to swype instead.
@MasterPlanV2 tweets: @clayrussell @iOSDocked choice is always a positive! You can always choose not to move away from stock if they did open it up.
This Week’s Roundtable/Listener Feedback Question
Why does HTC struggle to make it a smartphone market saturated with Apple and Samsung devices? What advice would you give if you had the ears of the company leadership?
