  1. 'CAPS LOCK' Key required.

    Please install an option to change the 'tab' key for a 'CAPS LOCK' key. I have found that even with double tap of shift key after double space the keyboard reverts to lower case after the first letter typed. Very annoying when you want upper case on always. Also this would stop changing from upper to lower case when !@#$%^&*() etc are typed. Or keep the 'tab' key but lock the shift lock key as always on once applied.

      Thanks for letting us know about the issue with caps-lock reverting after double-space. That’s a bug and we’ll fix it in the next release coming out in a week or two. We’ll also take a look at the reversion after typing symbols to see if there’s anything we can do there.

      As far as changing forward-delete for something else, we have been considering making this key customizable for some time, and will likely do so, but probably not in the next release.

    • Replace word that cursor is in, rather than split the word

      Firstly thanks for creating the first grown up keyboard for an iPad.

      Right now if you position the cursor in the middle of a mispelt word the keyboard proposes words based on the first part of the word and when you select one it splits the original word into two, replacing the first part of the word with the new one. It would be better if it considered the whole word and replaced the whole word with the new one, like most other 3rd party keyboards do. This could either be a standard feature or an option of you think…

        Thank you for the suggestion. It makes sense and we will schedule it for a future release.

        (I hadn’t realized third-party keyboards did things this way, probably because it’s difficult to end up in the middle of a word without cursor keys.)

        UPDATE: We haven’t implemented this yet mainly because we haven’t found any other keyboards / autocorrect implementations that work this way, and we’re worried it will clash with most users’ expectations. If anyone has any examples to point out to us, that might help. Thanks!
