A couple of weeks ago, we reported that Microsoft could be bringing its Word Flow keyboard onto iOS. For those unfamiliar, Word Flow is the keyboard used in Microsoft’s mobile products, and to date it has been found as one of the better virtual keyboards available, so you can understand that we are a bit excited for its arrival.
Now according to the folks at The Verge, they have learnt from their sources that the Word Flow app will contain some special features that appear to be unique to the iOS version. Word Flow already contains a one-handed mode in which the keyboard shifts to one side of the phone and provides a more compact keyboard so that users can type with one hand.
However as you can see in the photo above, Word Flow for iOS has a one-handed mode in which the keys are fanned out, which we can imagine will be more comfortable to use especially since it is angled as well. The report claims that the keyboard can also be switched from the left side to the right side, and vice versa, while Windows 10 Mobile is locked to one side only.
Other than that, the rest of the features appears to be similar in which it will provide word suggestions, emojis, and a swiping feature. No word on when Word Flow will be released, but an Android version is expected to follow the iOS release later this year.
