Apple finally introduced the option to let users replace their keyboard with alternative apps in iOS 8, and one company is already on pace to quickly distribute its app to iPhone owners who may want a new typing experience. Fleksy has posted to Twitter that it has already managed to get its keyboard app working on iOS 8. The black and gray background with prominent white text sticks out compared to the inverse color scheme for iOS.
Fleksy is best known for producing an alternative keyboard app for Android, which has long been available with a similar format. The keyboard uses large letters in a QWERTY format that takes up more of the screen area. It also includes a text prediction engine that offers suggestions as you type and a gesture-input option.
iPhone users can sign up to participate in a beta program at flexy's website sign-up page.
