wordflow-ios-screensA report from January earlier this year revealed that Microsoft’s Word Flow keyboard would be making its way to iOS. It is now towards the middle of April and the app has yet to be released, but thanks to a report by Windows Central, they have managed to get their hands on what appears to be screenshots of the keyboard running on iOS.

According to their report, the app is currently in private beta which might explain why there aren’t many details about the keyboard yet. However these screenshots do shed some light as to what we might be able to expect from it, such as how the keyboard can sport different themes and how users can even create their own themes from scratch.

For those unfamiliar with Word Flow, this is basically the keyboard that Microsoft uses in their Windows Phone platform, which at the same time is also one of the platform’s more highly-lauded features. In fact a couple of years ago, the Word Flow keyboard on Windows Phone managed to set a world record for the fastest text on a touchscreen.

Other features of the keyboard include access to your contacts meaning that the keyboard can autofill certain names for you.  There is even a one-handed mode that might come in handy for iPhone 6/6s Plus users. No word on when the app will be released, but the private beta expires on the 7th of June, 2016, hinting that could be when Word Flow could be officially released.
