Behind the scenes: How do fonts influence the way you type?

When you think of communication, you might first think of phone calls, text messages or two people talking. As you think longer about it, sentence structure and tone of voice might come to mind. Some things said sarcastically can be laughable or amusing, but when said with a serious tone, it’ll give you the creeps.

What you might not think of when evoking communication is

Behind the scenes: How can sound influence the way you type?

Fleksy sound design in the making

Fleksy has always been known as a highly customizable and unique keyboard. Part of what makes us so unique is the layout of the keyboard, look of it, as well as our gestures. But up until now, the one characteristic that was lacking this unique factor was our sound design!

6 reasons you should create a Fleksyapp — Interview with CEO, Vincent Gibson

ith another successful Fleksyapp launch in the books, our users can now watch TV from within their favorite messaging platform while they type. As you’ve probably guessed it, integrating companies’ content and services is difficult work and takes lots of precise engineering, communication, and design to bring it all together. Let’s take a look behind the scenes to see what that experience was like for Vincent Gibson, the CEO of VBoard, and find out why he thinks Fleksy is the app platform of the future.

Newspaper, Radio, TV…Fleksyapps!

Remember what life was like before TV?

News took days or weeks to spread. Sure times were slower and some people liked it, but everything was really inefficient. Plus, kids were bored.

Once video killed the radio star it was game on! People could access world news faster than you could say “Rupert Murdoch.” With the flip of a switch, you were informed. Television opened the door for endless entertainment. From sports games to Newscasts and MTV the only restriction for watching TV was Read more

How We Built a Privacy-Focused AI

We have been receiving a lot of feedback from our users asking us how Fleksynext works and how we approach privacy with this feature. So we decided to give you a deeper view of the science behind Fleksynext.

Introducing Fleksynext!

Why Fleksynext?

The purpose of Fleksynext is to help you access the relevant services and content you need, quicker. The idea behind the “next” of Fleksynext is that Fleksy understands what app you need to use “after” finishing your sentence. So, there is no need for switching apps. Instead, everything can be done instantly within the keyboard.

Tired of switching between apps?

Us too

The average adult has over 30 apps installed on his mobile phone while spending 23 hours a week texting. That got us thinking. At Fleksy, we pride ourselves for being the fastest keyboard in the world. So we decided to live up to our legacy and make you save even more time by going beyond typing.


Fleksyapps are apps like, Yelp, GIPHY, Skyscanner, Spotify, YouTube and more, that are embedded directly inside Fleksy keyboard and are always available when you need them. They’re with you during your conversation to assist you with everything you currently need to switch apps for:

Crowdfunding: the best way to help your favourite keyboard help you!

We’ve all been there: we love a product (like Fleksy smartphone keyboard) but there’s so much more we would like to see on it (like new languages, or swipe). We ask them, and we know the team is listening, but it’s taken a while for them to develop… Why?

Well, in a startup there are very few people doing a lot of work. As we previously demonstrated on our article about charging for apps or themes, there aren’t enough hours in the day to develop everything we would like to, so we need more people to help.

Why on earth should I pay for an app?

In today’s digital age, many users still have a hard time accepting to pay for apps, even if they use it every day and even if the app cost as much as two cups of coffee. The digital products we benefit from are considered to “exist” like the weather “exists”. So, they should be free, according to some.

However, it’s hardly possible to build a free product without either jeopadarsing the experience or doing nasty things with people’s data.

Let me explain the mechanics:

The New Fleksy: the brand

After Thingthing took over development of Fleksy, a new era began. The new team, full of energy to build the most secure, fun & productive keyboard in the world was keen to bring Fleksy to new highs.

But, in order to complete the vision of a new breed of keyboard, a refreshed brand was necessary. After speaking to a few agencies, Fleksy chose Point, from the UK, due to their unique point of view on branding and a solid track record with other successful startups and companies such as Seedcamp, Thriva and more.

Protecting people privacy from data-mining keyboards

After scandals such as Wikileaks, documents discovered and published by Edward Snowden, and many other privacy-related issues, it’s more than ever essential that anyone who uses a computer pays attention to who is watching and using their data. Everything you write and send over the internet can potentially be seen, stored and shared.

Of the top 3 keyboards today in the European market, two are owned by multinational companies: Swiftkey (owned by Microsoft) and GBoard (owned by Google). In exchange for services such as an alarm to leave for your next meeting, for example, Google makes users allow access to their maps, location, their meeting addresses and calendar appointments. Google also knows the location of your home and work, since they track the time you leave and return on a daily basis.

Fleksy launches the first Keyboard as a Platform (KaaP). What do we mean by it?

We have been in the keyboard space for some time now. We watch how people interact with it, we hear their frustrations and we have our vision of productivity on a mobile. Gathering all that, we envisioned the KaaP, Keyboard as a Platform, which we predict is the way all people will use keyboards in the future.

Here's what we mean by it:

A few years back, when you wanted to find something you searched on the web. Today you have "an app for that". Apps have superseded browsers as the way-to-go for information and entertainment. The problem with apps is that we have a LOT of them (users have 30 apps installed on mobile phones on average) and we need to switch between them while chatting/emailing to access content - and let's not talk about copy / paste content from one app to the other, which is clumsy, when it works.

So excited to announce Fleksy as the newest Google Play Editor’s Choice winner! After less than 1.5 years in the Google Play store, we are honored to be one of the few hand-selected for this award.

All-new Fleksy 3.0: bold new colors, even more languages!

We’ve been hard at work to make your Fleksy keyboard even better.

After billions of words typed, and millions of downloads – we are super excited to announce the launch of our major update, Fleksy 3.0. The new Fleksy introduces a beautifully re-designed look & feel, adds 17 new languages, and for those who love customizations, the option to get additional premium features through the Fleksy Store.

So far, Fleksy has been widely recognized for its iconic look & feel, and improving on that was no small feat. Our designers took Fleksy down to the pixel level, and after many attempts, the result is the new, elegant, “Jet Black” Fleksy look. Considering that you look at a keyboard 180 times and for about 1.5 hours per day (!), we want to make sure we provide the most comfortable, beautiful and enjoyable experience possible.

Make no mistake, this update is not just making a pretty face even prettier… 🙂 We’ve packed significant accuracy improvements across all languages for you, so you can crank out those messages even faster than before, and more comfortable than ever!

Fleksy Store will be launching with six all-new color themes including, “Deep Blue” and “Liquid Sky”. Sound pretty cool for customization fans? Well, as an added bonus, all paid Fleksy users will get a free premium theme of their choice, in addition to the new Jet-black theme which is available to all.

Also launching are 17 new languages, with improved accuracy for all 37 supported languages. The long list of new languages includes Hebrew, Croatian, Lithuanian, Albanian, Norwegian, Tagalog, Catalan and much more (even more coming soon!). As the new languages are still new, please let us know if you notice anything unexpected.

We will continue to build a premium product and bring more next-generation features in the coming updates. The journey to Happy Typing has just begun!

Available NOW on Android, coming soon to iOS 8.

Happy Typing!

Journey towards accessibility: We are home!

To our VoiceOver user friends,

In January, we made the difficult decision to separate the VoiceOver version of our technology into a separate app.

It was not a decision we made lightly, but it was necessary. Since pursuing the ambitious plan to create a keyboard SDK that all iOS apps can use, we realized that the technical challenges of this strategy were pretty huge. It is no wonder that other keyboard companies, some much larger than us, have not managed to succeed in this feat.

We didn’t want to leave our community of blind users behind, but neither did we want to see people suffer from the inevitable bugs we would introduce in the process. Thats’ why we temporarily created a stable app for VoiceOver users to be used in the transition period.

Today, we are pleased to announce full accessibility is restored in our main app. Get the update and try it yourself: Fleksy on the App Store.

Clarification of Fleksy VO for iOS

As many of you already know, we recently launched Fleksy VO on iOS, an earlier version of the Fleksy app but one we believe is the best Fleksy version for VoiceOver users.

We have received and read all of your feedback. The majority of the feedback has been positive and we greatly appreciate it but we understand that there have been some concerns regarding this decision.

Our decision to revert to a previous version of Fleksy for VoiceOver users on iOS is only temporary. Our goal has always been to make Fleksy available to as many users as possible, but making this possible poses many challenges for developers like ourselves.

Announcing Fleksy VO for iOS – A new keyboard for VoiceOver users

Our vision has always been to bring the best typing experience to everyone. We are working hard to make sure that we achieve this goal.

We are also working towards making Fleksy available to many more apps. The first attempts are already in the store and are successful in most aspects. However, we recognize that accessibility support requires significant work from individual developers and this has caused inconsistent typing experiences for our users.

We are dedicated to tackling this issue and for this reason - we have gone back to the drawing board.
