Innovative Typing App Fleksy Becomes More 'Fleksyble' With Universal Update
Fleksy, the innovative accessibility app that I highlighted in a preview post last June, has just become even more "fleksyble." Released last July, Fleksy offers a predictive text input system specially designed for blind and visually impaired people. But sighted users are, of course, also more than welcome to use it. As if by magic, Fleksy is able to determine what you mean to type even when you miss all of the letters of what you're supposed to be typing. What's more, you don't even have to be typing on the built-in keyboard for Fleksy to work its magic. It's that good. And it has just gotten better thanks to its latest update. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. The new update brings orientation locking, faster loading times, improved performance, and several major bug fixes. But no doubt the most significant addition to the newly updated Fleksy is universal support. Originally designed for iPhone and iPod touch only, Fleksy now runs natively on iPad and, of course, iPad mini. "We redesigned the user interface so that you can leave all external keyboards at home," says Flesky developer Syntellia. "Place your iPad on your lap and type away." Now compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, Fleksy is available in the App Store for free. An in-app purchase worth $4.99 allows you to add contact favorites as well as copy, email, and tweet text directly from Fleksy. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
