When I tap in a text box, the soft keyboard appear but not keys are displayed. However, if I touch type in the gray area, the text does appear. Closing and reopening the keyboard doesn't fix the issue. I've tried resetting and deleting and reloading the app.

    I too have a disappearing keyboard on my iPad Mini. The alpha key field comes up all gray, but I can still type by touching where there keys should be. I can restore the alpha keyboard and make it stay and function properly by first switching to an emoticon keyboard, and then clicking on the ABC in the lower left corner. That brings the alpha keys back and they work properly again.

    I use my International keyboard but it disappears when I go back to English.
