    I’m hoping that they will fix the 3rd party keyboards implementation. They’re just unusable in Facebook or in Messages.

    I’m often having to restart iMessages. I think it’s when I get to a message from a notification, it’s like the image of the message or the list of messages is super-imposed on top and it becomes unclickable. Only way to use iMessages then is to restart it.
