I understand your rationale behind why you implemented this option;
you want to make better use of the space above the keyboard, and
provide other features/options in the upcoming weeks and months as
However, in a way it kind of takes away the point of having a "full
screen" keyboard, at least for the typing part.
Basically, what it may turn into is, keyboard in the bottom half and
other options available through the upper half.
So essentially it'd become a "half screen" keyboard for typing
purposes, with other actions and options available through the upper
I am making this assumption based on what you said in another email (a
response to Benny I believe).
While I understand your rationale and reasoning, I do think that it
may work for some, while others may not want to compromise or adjust
to typing strictly in the bottom half of the screen. The way I see it,
a full screen keyboard allows users to have access to the full screen
(or at least a significantly large area) for typing purposes, and not
simply the bottom half, with actions available through the upper half.
Still, I think a happy medium, and the best thing to do would be, to
allow for all of those features to be made an option. And users can
customize the typing experience and the keyboard at their will.
Just like It is the case currently, where we have the choice of
enabling or disabling the bottom row of keys, or having the Dismiss
button available, or the Next Keyboard button available, visual
announcements being on or off, I think it would be best to add the
option for each of those new features/options that you implement, so
that the user can disable or enable something to suit their needs.
You also mentioned potentially adding a row above the current top row,
for numbers and symbols. Again, this would be nice to have for many,
but others may not want the top row to become less forgiving in that
sense, and may prefer to keep that feature turned off.
It may suit low vision users, but invididuals who have no usable
vision, may find it even more of a challenge with their typing area
being restricted even more.
While I understand that most in this group may like all of those
options in the upper half, there are obviously users outside of this
group as well, with varying levels of ability and skill, who may find
too much functionality and features overwhelming and difficult to
Therefore, I really think the option to enable and disable features,
functionality, gestures etc should be provided to allow for maximum
Just my opinion.
