Fleksy – the gesture rich and invisible keyboard exits beta, available in English & Spanish



One distinguishing features about the Android System compared to some other mobile OSes is that you can change many things about the environment of your device. One of the most important, in my view, is the ability to change the keyboard as it is the main input into the device. There are many keyboards available on the Play store, and into the foray comes Fleksy, which comes with it’s own set of features not to be outdone by it’s competition.


Fleksy has the honour of being one of the few (if not the first) keyboards to be designed for both Android and iOS. The developers originally developed the technology with the blind and partially sighted in mind, as the keyboard will give you voice feedback after each typed. The open Beta, which the app is now in [edit: my mistake, the app is out of beta for English and Spanish, with a beta for several other languages soon.], allows you to get a feel for the app, and the developers to improve their algorithms and add features from user requests.


So, what sets Fleksy apart from the other apps on the market? One of the most intriguing feature I found was the fact that you can make the keyboard disappear completely, viewing what is below.
