Last week, iOS 8 wasn’t the only new release for Apple users. Taking a page from the Android books, iOS users will finally be able to download and install third-party keyboards as Fleksy released their next generation touch typing platform for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

To date, the award-winning keyboard has found its way into the annals of Tech Cocktail multiple times. Their debut on the App Store at the release of iOS 8 marks it as one of the first ever third-party keyboards to support the keyboard extension in iOS 8.

Fleksy is the fastest smartphone keyboard in the world, proven by the fact that they set the record in the Guinness Book of World Records.

“The combination of our keyboard’s record-­beating typing speed, clean and intuitive design, as well as customization options, make for a truly revolutionary typing experience on iOS,” says Kosta Eleftheriou, Founder and CEO of Fleksy.

Users can now enjoy colored themes and customizable keyboard sizes that promise to deliver an unprecedented level of personalization to an OS that desperately needs it. Fleksy also includes 847 emojis and a collection of fun badges that reward users who try their more advanced features – oh, and it’s available in 40 different languages.

The keyboard technology space is definitely heating up, especially now that former Android-only platforms can now branch out to iOS. Keyboards are the most-used app on a phone, and the average Fleksy user types 50 million words a day – how many can you type?
