How can we make PadKeys better?

Swipe options

I would love to see 1) an option to disable swipe input and 2) an option to swipe/hold certain keys to input its alternate shift character.

    It'd be very helpful to have the option to disable Swipe-to-Type.

    I would love to use swiping on the upcoming iPhone version, but I do not use the function on the iPad - it ends up getting in the way more often than not for me.

    PadKeys Rocks!

    Ah, OK. One thing we've done before is to make PadKeys behave a certain way when a certain accessibility setting is on. Are there any settings you have on that PadKeys could check and disable swipe if they are set?

    1) I'm physically disabled and use my iPad Pro with a head-pointer. My head is usually pretty stable,but sometimes it activates the swipe input when I don't want it (actually, I never want it).

    2) I'm talking about on the primary keyboard, not the one that appears when you tap the option key. For example, it would be nice to swipe up on the "1" key and have it type the "!".
