“We’re very proud of Fleksy’s involvement in helping Marcel achieve this impressive feat,” said Ioannis Verdelis, Fleksy co-founder and COO. “The speed and accuracy Fleksy provides have yet again proven world-class.
To celebrate this achievement, the folks at Fleksy are permanently dropping the price of its Android product to $1.99. The iOS app is priced at $0.99 with additional themes available through in-app purchases.
Since the release of iOS 8 in September, Apple has allowed the use of third-party keyboards on the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad for the first time.
