Fleksy keyboard app bests own Guiness record for fast touch-screen typing, price reduced by half for eternity
Fleksy, the predictive keyboard app that lets you type with ninja-like reflexes, landed another World Guiness Record... by virtue of breaking its own record. Its former best-in-world result for "fastest time to type a text message on a touchscreen device" - which stood at 18.19 seconds - was bested by a new 17.00 seconds time! The record was pulled off by the same guy and double-certified Fleksy ninja, 17-year old Marcel Fernandes Filho. He had to type the sentence "The razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human." Well played, sport!

What's in it for users, though - besides bragging about having a Guiness-certified app, of course?. To celebrate the occasion, Flexy will reduce the app's price by half... forever! The app now costs $1.99 on Android, and $0.99 on iOS.

If you still aren't sold on Fleksy, it might help to know that in addition to besting its Guiness record, the app has won the CES Award for Design and Engineering, the SXSW Award, and a 2014 Golden Stevie Award for Innovation. It was also the first keyboard to enable blind typing on a smartphone, the first to land on a smartwatch as a fully-featured product, and the first to enable typing in a 3D AR interface by virtue of Leap Motion. Hey, there must be something in there! 

We're not saying Fleksy is the be all-end all of keyboard apps (although we came pretty close to that conclusion in our review) simply because its competitors have so much to offer. If you are especially picky, check out our keyboard app shootout and make your mind.

Personally I've never liked Fleksy Keyboard though.

Me too, I downloaded it recently from Amazon, but it has very few customisation options and what was freaking me out was that I have to hold about 2 seconds on letter to type special mark.

It might be doing good but I honestly have that keyboard. Have never used it long enough to get use to its ways either... Stock or swiftly.

I don't like the way Fleksy handles word suggestions, you can't just click on one, you have to circle through them. I prefer using stock Android keyboard.
