    Default 3rd Party Keyboards in iOS 8.1
    I want to keep using the 3rd party keyboards in iOS 8.1 but they don't have spell check! It's a pet peeve when I'm texting fast and almost everything is spelled wrong since the keys are close and I have this big case on my phone which makes it harder to press the right keys at the ends of the keyboard. Do anyone know if any of the 3rd party keyboards have spell check?

    What keyboard are you using? I haven't updated to iOS 8 yet, but I'm not sure why one wouldn't have spell check. Have you checked other keyboards to see if this is an 8.1 issue or simply the keyboard you chose?

    I just downloaded SwiftKey and see it do spell check. This keyboard look like it's more like Swype Keyboard which I don't care for. I don't want to try the paid keyboards unless they have spell check like the default iOS keyboard.

    I believe the swiping option in swiftkey is optional. I would assume most keyboards would have spell check, though. If it doesn't you could always just leave a bad review and see if the devs fix it.

    There isn't any settings where you can turn swiping off. You have to either text like you normally do or you can swipe across the keys. I downloaded TouchPal and it have spell check.
