Keyboard app Fleksy receives huge update with customizable Extensions, new themes and functionality
What about the Extensions, though? They work by being assigned to separate slots, of which all users (free & paid) receive three at no cost. They can be used for setting the initial Extensions, which can be enabled or disabled at any moment. Additional slots can be purchased $0.99 apiece.
Fleksy users will receive the update in the usual manner soon. If you are new to the keyboard, check out our review of Fleksy and download the app on Android or iOS. And if you'd like to know more, here's the gist of what each new extension does:
* The GIFs Extension allows you to discover and send GIFs like you do with emoji. You can browse curated images, or search for your own. By the way, that's a first on Android.
* The Fleksy launcher for Android is not a launcher in the sense of custom user interface, but rather the convenient option of sticking shortcuts to frequently used apps on top of the keyboard. As far as we know, that's a first on Android as well.
* The Editor Extension enables quick editing and formatting inside Fleksy. Press and drag on the spacebar to move the cursor, or use the shortcuts bar to copy, past, indent, and do more stuff.
* The Number Row removes the need to toggle the number row. If you use it often, you will appreciate the faster access to it.
* Keyboard Shortcuts lets you save shortcuts/snippets to words and sentences you use often. For example, Fleksy will automatically turn the predefined snippet "omw" to "on my way!"
* Rainbow key pops makes every key you tap pop with a new vibrant color. #yay
* Fleksy's Invisible keyboard becomes an extension, too. Typing on a transparent keyboard where you see absolutely no letters has never been this accurate.
* One-Handed typing extension lets you move the keyboard to the left or to the right of your device's display, making it easier to reach for with your fingers.
