Since KitKat’s rollout, however, people have noticed that the default input method reverts to the default keyboard when updating a paid keyboard app. Worse still, the keyboard you updated actually ends up disabled.
What’s interesting about this bug is that it seems to only affect the paid flavor of these apps. Free versions should go unaffected.
