Great! That works. Thanks! And by experimenting, I just found puntuation: 
Sweep from the bottom of the screen up...

Just tip on the right word in the *middle* of the bar. Tip left or right to 
skip through possible words till the right one is in the middle. Or sweep 
your finger to the right on the bottom of the keyboard(I just found that out 
after your hints).

Now there seems only two questions for me left:

1. How do I get german Umlauts?
2. Sometimes the predicted word only shows up in uppercase while I typed it 
and want it written in lowercase. How  do I change that?
