Fleksy is one of the most popular keyboard apps on Android, giving users the ability to type fast without worrying about having to go back and correct every single word they type. Like many other third party keyboards, it has auto correction baked right in but it also carries things most keyboards don’t like gestures for cycling through punctuation and gestures to space between or delete words. In some of Fleksy’s most recent updates, they gave the app a face lift and brought in a material design style UI and even added in a bunch of new themes, they also added in a feature called keyboard extensions which allowed users to basically augment their keyboard with a little extra functionality, like the GIF extension which allowed users to quickly access GIF’s to insert into their texts without having to leave the message.
Today Fleksy is announcing another new update which comes along with not only support for a few new languages, but it also now integrates GIF keyboard by Riffsy, allowing users the same quick access to GIF’s but with a couple of improvements. If you like to use GIF’s then this is great as the GIF keyboard by Riffsy brings a couple of things to the table that the previous keyboard extension option did not. The new GIF keyboard comes preconfigured into the regular keyboard and you can access GIFs with the tap of a button on the main keyboard screen, and now have typing, GIFs, and emojis all combined into one typing experience, something which Fleksy states no other keyboard offers.
Also new with GIF keyboard by Riffsy is the ability to actually search for GIF’s which is something that wasn’t possible before. You can also still browse by category of course and just sift through GIFs if you’re not looking for any one type in particular. As for the new languages support, adding to the already large list of supported languages, in this latest update Fleksy has added in support for Korean, Hindi, and Indonesian. Users who haven’t given Fleksy a try before can download Fleksy for free to give it a shot by navigating to the free trial version of the app, (located in the Google Play widget below) which Fleksy mentions will stay free forever. Fleksy’s commitment to their loyal users and passion for bringing them new features like these, has led them to see a 1,000% year-over-year growth and Fleksy is now also the newest winner of the Google Play Editor’s Choice Award.
