To be able to minimize the keyboard via a swipe or button.
On iPad Air 2 in landscape, keyboard covers half the screen.
The keyboard is already capable of being minimized in Android 10 (through a dedicated button)
Need the capability on ios

The main issue I have with the otherwise very good keyboard is that I often have situations in multiple apps where there is no input needed (any longer) and I cannot dismiss the keyboard by clicking away from it, or via the back gesture as the keyboard detects that as a keyboard press. There should be a keyboard specific gesture (such as two fingers down or better yet drag down on the TypeWise logo)
On iOS I often have to revert to the stock keyboard in order to minimise.
Every key except the three utility keys are designed to be tapped. I want to be able to hold down a key for a half second and use a "hidden keyboard"

It is essential that there be some way of minimizing or hiding the keyboard on an ipad. This can either be a gesture or a key. How else are you supposed to exit or minimize the keyboard in a document? Hitting the return key in a document skips to the next line. App is impossible to close in a document or email. Please correct this fatal flaw in an otherwise fine app!
Sometimes it would be helpful to have a feature to hide the keyboard in order to access something that's hidden below it. It could be a button or an underfunction of a button. Or maybe a multifinger swipe?
