Default Secondary keys on Google keyboard

I love the secondary keys that CM11 has on the keyboard. Such as "m" is a question mark and so on..

Since I can't have that right now, how would I get that keyboard back?

I have tried googling to no avail. Not sure what that would be called.

Anyone care to help? This boosts productivity when typing on the phone 100%.

Try SwiftKey, it is free since yesterday and a much better keyboard.

What are my other options? Can't I flash that keyboard? Where would I find it? Gapps packages?

Just open the google Play store and search for Swiftkey. Then install it. Or Look for another keyboard. I like Swype.

From your original post it seemed like the point was you want a keyboard with secondary keys on it. The keyboards mentioned have that. You may want to explore Cyanogen forums if that is the only acceptable keyboard for you.

For simple keyboard apk you can try kii keyboard, it has a theme that looks exactly the same as google/aosp keyboard and has also the secondary keys on long press
If you're really willing to adventure in replace stock keyboard, you can try this one:
