Hi Kosta, I just got the memory warning again, but if I continue to type it seems to be ok. Oops, I spoke too soon. I just got the message two more times, but I can keep on typing. It usually appears after I flick down to select another prediction. Otherwise, this is typing great!

A little more information on the memory warnings:

Unlike an app, when a keyboard crashes for whatever reason, the system
quickly relaunches it so you might not even notice that a crash has
occurred. Crashes can happen if the keyboard uses more memory than the
frugal amount that iOS allows. Previously, I didn't announce the memory
warnings, but the keyboard still crashed way too frequently. By adding the
warnings, I can at least get a sense from your reports about how many of
the crashes are due to memory limits, and if my attempts to improve memory
usage are having any impact. Once I add some analytics code, those warnings
can be reported directly through that system instead, so you will not have
to ever endure the message. Of course the keyboard might still be crashing
until the root cause is addressed and the memory usage becomes acceptable
by iOS.
