On iOS 8, with the new predictive text type thing, the comment field can now be squashed to a single line high - which makes it very difficult to scroll.

enter image description here

From what I can see, this is cause by the predictive-text-block taking space from the comment-block, rather than the background-block. Through experimentation, I found you can swipe collapse the predictive block, although this isn't immediately obvious when it's open by default (I think!)

This is iPhone 4s, iOS 8.1.2, and app v1.2.1.

    @Arie facepalm 4S is what I have - sorry. – Chris Dec 29 '14 at 22:06

This will be fixed in beta version

The issue here was a calculation we do to determine how much extra "reading" space we should leave above the comment view so that users can scroll the question area while drafting a comment. This wasn't taking into account shorter screens like the 4S has.
