Fleksy, the predictive text input app that works amazingly well for both visually impaired and sighted users, has just been updated to version 2.0.
Fleksy 2.0 boasts a completely reworked engine that makes for a markedly improved user experience. It also introduces a new layout that’s being tested for sighted users.
The new layout includes a space bar, which may be tapped instead of flicking right for making a space between words. If you wish to work sans space bar, just flick down with two fingers to hide it. You can also go further and flick down with two fingers one more time to hide the entire keyboard and type with an invisible one. To bring the keyboard back, just flick up with two fingers.

Fleksy 2.0 also brings the following improvements:
- Adding new words to the dictionary no longer requires manual typing for all letters. Just swipe up twice to add, again to remove
- Simplified symbols. Swipe Left with 2 fingers to switch to the dedicated Symbols keyboard. Swipe Right with 2 fingers or space to go back to letters
- Fleksy will detect your System’s language and automatically set itself to it (will default to English, if language not supported). Can be manually set to preference in Settings
- Flicking left will delete by character, as long as 1 letter has been manually typed
Fleksy 2.0 is available now in the App Store for free. Also featuring a new splash screen and app icon, both of which match iOS 7, it’s compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 7.
