***** App Store Review *****

"I really did not need or want many of the fancy swipe features in a lot of the new keyboards. This app gives the keyboard all the things Apple frankly should have put in there in the first place ... finally an easy way to see lowercase and no more having to switch to type numbers. Life is better now."

"Effective 5 row keyboard. Useful swipe gesture ... Much better than other alternate keyboards with similar features."

Good SwipeSelection Alternantive

Really the only thing I'm looking for in a keyboard is the ability to move the cursor by swiping across the keyboard. This allows you to do that, but only with the bottom left portion (space bar and to the left of the space bar)

For 5 stars I would want basically the apple keyboard layout with the swiping available across the whole keyboard.

Right now you get the option of numbers on the top of the keyboard, which is nice because you don't have to switch layouts to see numbers, but honestly makes the letters too small for me (iPhone 6)
You also get to erase by swiping on the keyboard. I can see the merit.

For 5 stars I would want the option to choose if I want numbers or larger letters. And choose what swiping on each area did. For example choosing swiping on the keyboard (not space bar) would be moving the cursor and swiping on the space bar would be erasing
