Fleksy Breaks Guinness World Record…Again

Back in May the third-party keyboard Fleksy announced to the world that they had shattered the Guinness World Record for Fastest Texting. And then they did it again.

This past week, Fleksy announced that they had trumped their previous effort and set yet another new Guinness World Record for Fastest Texting. Marcel Fernandes Filho, age 17, used Fleksy’s iOS keyboard to break his previous record of 18.19 seconds with a new time of 17.00 seconds.


“We’re very proud of Fleksy’s involvement in helping Marcel achieve this impressive feat,” says Ioannis Verdelis, Fleksy co-founder and COO.  “The speed and accuracy Fleksy provides have yet again proven world-class.”

Fleksy has made typing faster for millions of users on touchscreen devices with their advanced autocorrect and powerful gesture controls. The team wanted to show the world that the iOS platform, where Fleksy arrived this past September, was just as powerful as its Android counterpart.

And in an effort to bring the Fleksy keyboard to an even wider audience, the crew announced in tandem that they’ll be dropping the price for the full version to $1.99 on Android.

“There is massive demand for a premium keyboard like Fleksy which combines speed, beautiful design, and customization options,” says Kosta Eleftheriou, Founder and CEO of Fleksy.  “We want to improve the typing experience for everyone, and we hope this price drop encourages even more users to take advantage of Fleksy’s offering.”
