Re: Build 86

Really like this. Thanks for the quick turnaround on hiding the visual word announcements. Working great.
Likewise, I don't really care for the spacebar but it's no harm having the option there.
I agree the familiarity with the iOS keyboard is a good move. And for me has actually become a much better idea than the extra row above the keyboard from the old app.
I would also find phonetic feedback when navigating the keyboard manually to be useful.

I would also like to be able to manually type a capital letter, then complete the word with taps.
Oh, and by any chance, could we have a few more emoji spots? I understand we don't want too many, but even expanding it from six to ten would be nice.
I know there is a complete emoji keyboard on the way at some point, but the swipe up shortcut is nonetheless very convenient.

All in all though this feels like something which is extremely close to public release.
