Certainly, third party keyboards are a real testament to how customizable Android can be out of the box. 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.
