Old Windows Phone keyboard trick now much better in WP8.1

I complained a week ago about the inability to swipe to punctuate in Windows Phone 8.1

It turns out the Windows Phone 8 keyboard itself has a rather great swiping trick which is now much more relevant in Windows Phone 8.1.

It turns out pressing and holding on the punctuation switch button and then sliding to the punctuation key you want and then letting go will pop you right back to the normal keyboard to continue swiping your rant at speed.

The video, by Somegadgetguy.com, also has a few more trick which even long time Windows Phone users may have overlooked.
