Fleksy iOS keyboard SDK emerges from beta, goes to developers

updated 10:07 am EST, Thu February 20, 2014

iOS' first wide-release third-party keyboard

Developer Fleksy has released the completed SDK for its iOS keyboard, following up on an original announcement in December. Although it can't replace iOS' own system-wide keyboard, owing to limitations from Apple, the Fleksy code can be integrated into third-party apps, and offers advanced options like prediction, gesture commands, and different color themes. Adding the app to a keyboard requires minimal work on the part of developers, but users must have the Fleksy app installed, which carries over settings and dictionaries between apps.

The keyboard is invoked by tapping a Fleksy button next to the cut/copy/paste buttons in a text field. The final SDK improves the keyboard's accuracy, adds a better dictionary and more languages, and offers new color themes designed to match the iPhone 5c. An initial roster of apps supporting the Fleksy keyboard includes You Doodle, Cotton Notes, Write for iOS, Tap Forms Organizer, SnapStatus, Vert 2, and MUDRammer.
