Fleksy Leaves Beta, May Soon Become Your New Alternative Keyboard

Fleksy, the alternative keyboard for iOS and Android, has just been updated to allow any developer of iOS apps to easily implement its streamlined features for free. The software development kit (SDK) will allow any app that needs a keyboard effortlessly include Fleksy’s system without making any changes to the app itself.

“We’re very excited to finally make our SDK available to hundreds of thousands of developers around the world. We learned a lot from the private beta and today’s release brings the most beautiful, streamlined 3rd-party keyboard experience yet for iOS” said Ioannis Verdelis, COO of Fleksy.

The Fleksy keyboard, originally designed for blind smartphone users, lets you type without looking at the screen, with a serious predictive text engine that analyzes how you actually touch your screen.

This is the first alternative keyboard open to developers to add to their own apps, making Fleksy a shoo-in to become the main replacement keyboard in iOS as more and more apps choose to add the SDK to their own development systems.

“Today’s launch is a significant milestone for us. Within just a few days, thousands of developers can bring the magic of Fleksy into their apps, for free. We can’t wait to see the response of the developer community and see Fleksy become a standard feature of every app.” said Kosta Eleftheriou, CEO, in a statement.

The beta was released in December of 2013 and implemented across several apps, including Wordbox, Google Voice Connect and Blindsquare.
