Split keyboard just a little too wide for my little hands!
I think mostly the new layout is much better. And the slightly bigger keys are much welcome compared to the last version.
However when I am holding my tablet in landscape view trying to type with two thumbs (which is presumably what the split view is meant for) I cant quite reach the furthest letters with my thumbs. Personally, as a small handed fellow, i'd quite like the option of the split keyboard being a bit taller and slightly less wide in landscape if at all possible!
I agree! I wish the keyboard were just a little smaller in the split mode. Typing in landscape on the Xoom is a reach for the 't' and 'y' keys.
Other than that, I love this keyboard!

I'm becoming increasingly frustrated with the wide indentation at the Q and A keys in horizontal split layout - so much, that I'm actually typing this using Thumb Keyboard instead (despite its lackluster word predictions).
I'm using the Danish layout so on the right hand side, the keys Å and Ø fit flush against the side - just as it should be, IMO.
Please, for the love of everything sacred, move ',' and '.' to the outside of the space bar(s).
Split layout for portrait mode? Pretty-please! :-/
On the zoom it's a reach to get the middle suggested word. It would be great if the middle bar were wider than the other two.

Would it be too difficult to have, maybe two or three key sizes so we canchoose? I have the same problem, small hands and its hard to reach.

I also think, having used it a bit more that not have two easily reachable spacebars is a problem now. I find it really hard to swiftkey as I cant get to the spacebar very easily. Curse my small hands!

People have claimed that, before, the keyboard was too small (I liked it smaller, it's SwiftKey, not "Type-Super-Accurate-Key") and now people are concerned it's too big... can we have a "Split, Small" and "Split Large" option? So you can cycle between 3 layouts, not 2?
