iOS 8 Third-party Keyboards – You Get What You Ask For

Missing iOS8 third party keyboard via BrothaTech

I was among those who could not wait for Apple to open up iOS 8 to third-party developers. One of the main reasons was so I could use a different keyboard.

Which worked great…for a while. Now I’m running into a problem where no keyboard pops up at all when I have a third-party keyboard set as the default.

I notice it most often when I’m doing a spotlight search.

To fix, it I have to leave spotlight search, open up a note, and pray the keyboard pops up so I can switch to the default keyboard (Tap the globe button on the keyboard to toggle installed keyboards).

Now I am reconsidering using a third-party keyboard at all.
