fleksy

Fleksy is quickly making waves in the Android world as one of the best keyboards you can download for your phone (and eventually your smartwatch). Today’s update pushes them another big step forward to becoming a serious keyboard contender. For starters, 17 new languages have been added to the list (some of which are just different versions of languages already included). Here’s the full list of additions:

  • Albanian
  • Brazilian Portuguese
  • Catalan
  • Croatian
  • English (AU)
  • English (CA)
  • French (CA)
  • Estonian
  • Hebrew
  • Latvian
  • Lithuanian
  • Norwegian
  • Serbian
  • Spanish (US)
  • Spanish (LA)
  • Slovenian
  • Tagalog

Even more exciting is a redesign that embodies the flat, elegant look and feel that today’s mobile apps have come to be known for. With that comes the addition of a new store where you’ll be able to buy premium themes for the keyboard.

You’ll get about 6 options that all add some nice flavor to what’s typically a very muted experience. Folks who bought the premium version of the keyboard are entitled to one of these themes for free, a nice added bonus if you’ve supported Fleksy by dropping some coin into their pocket for the full version.

The rest of the changes include an improved dictionary, a fix for some typing lag issues and fixes to sizes of emojis and lag when scrolling through emojis. All of it is waiting for you at Google Play so get over there for the download as soon as possible. Not sure if Fleksy has what it takes to be your daily driver? A free option exists for you try out so be sure to go that route first if you prefer not to go all in.
