Fleksy Enters Their First OEM Partnership and Launches On The Gear S

September 3, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz

Fleksy is the fastest typing keyboard in the world, something we have mentioned many times over and believe to be true for ourselves personally, but they aren’t just a keyboard that provides you the fastest typing experience possible while still keeping things accurate. They also seem to be the fastest in their attempts to get into the hands of OEMs(namely Samsung)who are putting wearables on the market. Earlier on in the year Fleksy brought their keyboard to the Gear line of devices that Samsung launched after showing them off at CES, and now Fleksy is the first(fastest?, because more keyboards will surely come to the Gear S)third party keyboard to be featured on the Gear S at launch, which Samsung has just unveiled here at IFA.

Although Fleksy brought their keyboard to the Gear 2, the launch of their keyboard application on the Gear S marks the first OEM partnership for them as it will be a launch day available feature. Fleksy is aiming to be the leading typing technology for mobile devices, and other apps like Swiftkey and Swype should definitely be looking out for these guys because they’re providing a fantastic typing experience, but they’re also getting their keyboard into as many hands as possible by developing it for any mobile device they can. Although this marks the beginning of many more Fleksy appearances to come in the future, and this is the full fledged Fleksy you see on smartphones and tablets, Fleksy is continuing support for the Fleksy messenger app that they launched onto the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo earlier this year. Those who have a Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo and use Fleksy Messenger for typing, should also be looking for an update to hit soon.

Fleksy is one of the top 3 selling apps on the Gear ecosystem thanks to Fleksy Messenger, and they’re only setting themselves up to solidify their standings by releasing the official Fleksy keyboard on the Gear S at launch. If you’re a fan of the Gear S and foresee yourself picking one up, seriously consider using Fleksy as your main keyboard as it might give you the best typing experience on a smartwatch that you’ll ever have.
