Fleksy is made by the creators of the alternative keyboard BlindType that was acquired by Google. As a result many of the technologies developed in BlindType are reinvented in Fleksy. The combination of accurate prediction and gestures allow you to focus on the text you are actually typing not the keyboard. See More
The most unique aspect about Fleksy is it's gesture system. The middle row of keys that is grayed out serves as the gesture row.

"Mini" mode saves critical screen real estate. See More
