    Ive been having an issue with the keyboard, where sometimes if i press the space bar, it seems to think i'm holding it, and will first put a period at the end of whatever word i added, then continue spacing untill the next line. It either does this, or will not space at all. Both seem to be sparatic, and i dont notice anything in connection with when it happens yet, but its happened quite alot, and seems to have been happening more the past two days. Anyone else having this issue?

    I have noticed this behavior as well. I'm not sure what causes it, but hopefully it will be fixed with the first update. As for the adding a period, there's a setting in the keyboard and languages menu that says add period after double space, or something like that. I disabled that on mine so it won't think i'm starting a new sentence. As for the spacebar sticking, I don't know of any real workarounds that don't involve using the onscreen keyboard instead.

    I don't know if this will help you or not but my spacebar was sticking really bad and I realized that it has been doing this since installing swift key x on my phone. I uninstalled swift key and have not had one problem with my keyboard.

    I have tried SwiftKey X in the past but it's been uninstalled for quite awhile.

    Never mind. The spacebar hadn't stuck in two days after deleting SwiftKey... Until about a hour after posting that it fixed the problem. Well it started sticking again but for a very short time. It has worked normal the last few hours. I was hoping that it was cured. I hope that this is a software bug that they will fix with the next update.

    I'm experiencing this most often with the spacebar, but occasionally with other keys too. It has been driving me nuts...
