Fleksy, an innovative keyboard that at one time was my daily ‘board, received a major update today to version 3.0. In this latest build, we are seeing the introduction of a store that offers both premium themes and content, along with an evolutionary change on the minimal design of the Fleksy default minimal look. Users of the “award-winning” keyboard can choose from any of six new premium themes, including one free bonus theme for premium users.
The update also includes 17 new languages and improved accuracy for all 40 supported languages. Version 3.0 is live on Google Play. (more…)

To award users who have mastered gestures and invisibility, badges are awarded, which you can tote around showing off to all of your friends. (more…)

Fleksy, my new keyboard obsession on Android, received a solid update yesterday that makes it fully-resizable, reduces the file size of the app, and adds a ton of enhancements. One of those enhancements is a beautiful new “Vanilla” theme that really is as stunning as the original dark theme. Is there a better looking keyboard than Fleksy? (more…)
Sorry for the second Fleksy keyboard post in as many hours, but we were sort of blown away by some of the advanced controls that are included with this keyboard, most notably the option to go full-screen hidden keyboard.
