After releasing its predictive touch keyboard, Fleksy, in partnership with select launch partner apps such as Launch Center Pro, GV Connect, Blindsquare and Wordbox, the San Francisco-based startup behind the software has moved the SDK out of private beta so now all iOS devs can incorporate Fleksy as an alternative soft keyboard within their apps.
The Fleksy SDK requires no sign up, allows for different keyboard themes and is now available completely free of charge…
According to Fleksy, the SDK allows iOS developers to implement Fleksy’s alternative touch keyboard with predictions and auto-correct capability “with zero lines of code and without having to make any changes to their app at all”.
The keyboard uses proprietary technology to intelligently autocorrect words as you type and offers next-word predictions based on the unique way you use words together, meaning it gets smarter the more you use it and adapts to your typing style over time.
Here’s a quick video.
The keyboard is heavy on gestures, too: you can cycle through auto-correct suggestions by swiping up and down, insert spaces and punctuation by swiping to the right, delete words by swiping to the left and more.
Here’s Launch Center Pro with Fleksy integration.
Of course, third-party developers will still need to implement Fleksy keyboard functionality so this feature will be available an app-by-app basis. Those who do will be able to offer their customers a soft keyboard input method other than Apple’s stock iOS keyboard.
Switching between Fleksy and the iOS keyboard is also completely streamlined, as demonstrated by Fleksy’s own app, the free SwiftKey note-taking app.
