iOS 8 brings a new feature that has been requested many times by Apple fans, and that’s the ability to install system-wide third party keyboards on iOS powered devices. The feature was confirmed bact at WWDC 2014 when iOS 8 was unveiled and some of the biggest names that create keyboards for Android committed to bringing their solutions over to iOS. One of them is Fleksy and today the Fleksy iOS 8 keyboard has finally been released.
Just yesterday Apple rolled out iOS 8 for supported iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models. The software is now available for download over-the-air and millions of people are upgrading their devices to see what changes have been made in Apple’s mobile platform.
Fleksy’s iOS 8 launch comes a day after the software was rolled out. This isn’t its first app for the platform. Previously it has been available on iOS through integrations with many third party applications. But iOS 8 changes things as it provides the keyboard system-wide access which means that this third party keyboard can be used in any application, be it native or one from an independent developer.
Fleksy brings support for more than 40 languages and multiple keyboard layouts. The keyboard has advanced predictive typing technology and it learns the way the user types in order to accurately make predictions. The keyboard is customizable and its size can be adjusted to suit the user’s fingers.
