"We have developed this in-house from the ground up. The objective of the two (as well as of other keyboard technologies) is the same – to make typing easier. But we do not know any other technology prior to Fleksy that actually delivers this experience and is downloadable."-Ioannis Verdelis, co-creator
Fleksy for iOS is an amazing virtual keyboard that was created as a QWERTY keyboard for the visually impaired. As the video below shows, Fleksy can unscramble misspelled words
in a heartbeat and uses swipe gestures to delete words, add punctuation or to add a space. The keyboard is so intuitive that you can type without the keys on the screen and still have a perfect typing experience thanks to autocorrect.
BlindType originally sold its initial idea to Google as a proof-of-concept. Fleksy takes the concept and turns it into a full-bodied technology. Now focusing on iOS at first with Fleksy, the plan is to eventually offer the virtual QWERTY for Android and Windows Phone
. And while the initial idea was to create a QWERTY for those with trouble seeing clearly, Fleksy is designed for all typists.
Currently, the keyboard is a free download available on iTunes.
