Re: Other keyboards?
Samsung and Apple has always been targets of DoS attacks and other hacking related problems. The question one should ask now is if the new update solves the problems and stops the attacks.

Other keyboards?
Fleksy is a very good replacement to the swiftKey keyboard and it is very customizable and has a minimalist outlook. Although I don't know if it has vulnerabilities or not.
