While it's good in its own right, you don't have to use Apple's default keyboard. Here are three solid alternatives. (And more here: http://cnet.co/1GtrKW0)
  1. SwiftKey
    6546d721 55ab 4496 b9f9 084ef72a222c
    It's the one of the most popular Android keyboards, loved for its predictive suggestions. The more you use it, the smarter it gets.
  2. Swype
    0975a5f6 7b09 4d17 8290 bf8b5f3794ba
    The first keyboard to introduce swipe-to-type.
  3. Fleksy
    C5aa1738 f470 4695 8d30 1439a6f2ddd6
    Fleksy emphasizes speed, using gestures to help you move quickly from one word to the next. It's even earned the title "world's fastest keyboard" from Guinness World Records.
