Does any other keyboard make these an option? If there is something not working well about them in PadKeys, please try to describe it, and we will work on it.Simon commented
I meant the popups that I added as an attachment.
In version 4.4 we’ve made some adjustments to the English iPhone layout. Please let us know your feedback, thanks.
We already offer swipe UP for access to shifted variant on the symbol keys. Are you saying you would like this on letters as well, or that you’d prefer down to up?
As far as keycap font, we’ll offer a “small-label” theme if enough users are interested, just like the current “bold” theme provides a way to have bold keycaps.Simon commented
I think what they meant was that the original iOS keyboard acts on swipe down gestures and it was confusing.
But I think swipe-up is just right for shifted characters, although swipe-up for letters would be interesting too but without labels of course.
Maybe a swipe-down for option-key behavior would be useful as well.
for fast input of:
- _ @ £ € [ ] < > : = ' ...etc. (depending on layout)
The symbol-keys could have small light-colored (grey) labels in the lower right corner for the option character if that's not too much chaos.
What you are saying makes sense, and would not be hard to implement. However the trick is to keep the configuration simple for the user. It starts to feel clunky when you are having to select layout and language separately.
One idea might be to have an “freeze layout” switch which if unset (the default) leaves behavior as now. If it IS set, that layout stays unchanged, and only the language changes when selecting by the regular mechanism (either quick-switch or from list in settings).

We have this on our TODO list, however to do it well for all of our supported languages is not a trivial task.
