Fleksy Makes Things Even Sweeter This Valentine’s Day With Free Theme And 5.2 Version Update

February 12, 2015 - Written By Justin Diaz

Fleksy Keyboard is one of the most popular third party keyboard apps on Android, which is especially impressive given the short amount of time it’s been available compared to older keyboard apps like Swiftkey and Swype. In honor of this coming Valentine’s Day, Fleksy wants to make things a little sweeter for their users by giving all of them a free theme, which we presume can be any one of the themes that Fleksy offers. The themes are a great way for users to customize their keyboard typing experience, and some of them, like the Chameleon keyboard are rather awesome because they change colors to match the color scheme of the app you’re typing in.

A free theme is not the only sweet stuff coming from Fleksy today though, as they’re also rolling out the version 5.2 update for Android users which brings in two new keyboard extensions. If you’re not familiar with the keyboard extensions that Fleksy introduced in their last update, they’re basically little keyboard addons you can implement to enhance your typing experience, ranging from things like the GIF addon giving you instant access to tons of animated GIFs right from the keyboard without having to leave the app your typing in, to the rainbow keypop extension which gives you a splash of different rainbow colors every time you hit a key.

The two new extensions are the the heart keypops extension, which is just like the rainbow keypop  but instead of rainbow colors you get a heart that pops up after each key press, and the second extension and the more functional of the two is the hotkeys extension, which lets users have 7 open key spaces to customize with a specific action upon keypress. The hot keys are basically like macros, so you can set up your 7 open key spaces to insert things like an email contact or a phrase you commonly use, on the fly without having to search for things and type them out. With updates and cool features like these(in addition to it working extremely well)it’s no wonder that Fleksy has millions of downloads and is the #1 ranked app in 25 different countries. If you haven’t given Fleksy keyboard a try yet, now is a great time to check it out and see for yourself how it fares against what you may already be using.
