Default Re: Misinformation about a touch shortcut?

I don't know if it changed recently but I too find that I cannot swipe up to get the keyboard. Honestly, I do not think that this issue would impact your decision.

I will mention two tips though:

1. By default - if you close the physical keyboard the virtual will appear in most screens where it is deemed appropriate (browser, messages, text) - you can turn this off - I have as I like more viewable area and click on the icon to get the virtual keyboard.

2. Along the same lines, if your users ask how to "lock" the screen in profile - they can open the slider keyboard and the screen will stay in portrait orientation.

We have begun rolling out torches where I work and this issue hasn't come up.

Good luck.
