Two-thumb text selection gesture
press-and-hold both space buttons to trigger text selection (equiv. to click-and-hold inside a text field) then you get to control the left-end select highlight with your left thumb, and the right-end selection bar with the other. [[sorry;cannot add img]]

This idea is really genius. Do you know any other keyboard able to achieve that?
Idea is good but using it with one hand would be lacking experience and annoy some people that want to use that feature. I would rather say: swipe up on space buttons to enter a well tought selection mode.

With the way of how this keyboad is implemented, a swipe up on space(bar) to enter a dynamic copy/paste, select words mode (a small overlaying window) would make a lot of sense. The select words function would then let you just click on words to simply select them. For this implementation to be simple, the selection should be made based on space and punctuation and not on words recognition. Also to swipe down on it would sellect all and directly copy.
