Fleksy received a big update this morning through Google Play for Android devices, one which brings a huge list of new features, as well as fixes and optimizations for all of you custom keyboard lovers.
To kick it off, Fleksy introduced Extensions, which is a fancy name to call all of their new features. For starters, a GIF Keyboard has been built in, which allows you to insert GIFs in the place of text or emojis the next time you want to send a message. Not only is there a GIF Keyboard, but Fleksy has added in 14 new themes, including a few Hunger Games and Frozen themed skins. Most notably, a new Chameleon theme will change the color of the keyboard to match the application you are running. (more…)

I’m not convinced that typing on your smartwatch will ever be a pleasant experience, but you could do worse than Fleksy‘s Messenger. The makers of the third-party keyboard, who had us enamored when they first debuted, have moved beyond the smartphone form factor for their latest project, a Tizen-compatible SMS app for the Galaxy Gear 2 smartwatch.

An update to version 2.0 for the Fleksy keyboard will bring rewards in the form of badges for those of you who have conquered the learning curve found in the keyboard. Fleksy takes a couple of days to really get down, with its gestures, as well as the ability to type with an “invisible” keyboard.
