    Earlier this year, Fleksy updated the Android version of its keyboard alternative to version 2.0 with a new badge system and cloud syncing features. Today, the company followed up that release with a major overhaul to its iOS App.

    The newest version of Fleksy for iOS offers a significant redesign that brings a new user interface, six new themes and a few new features to the universal iOS app. The biggest addition is an in-app tutorial and FAQ guide to help new users start using the alternative keyboard.

    Fleksy is known for its predictive text engine that compensates for your sloppy typing with accurate word replacement. It also supports gestures that make it easy to enter punctuation, add returns and more.

    Though Apple's restriction on keyboards prevents Fleksy from replacing the default iOS keyboard systemwide, the company offers a workaround that allows developers to integrate Fleksy on an app-by-app basis. This iOS software development kit was made available to all iOS developers earlier this year.

    Fleksy is popular among consumers with the keyboard software reaching the one million total cross-platform downloads. Despite its limitations on iOS, demand for the keyboard is strong.
    Fleksy is free for users to install and for developers to integrate into their apps. iPhone and iPad owners can download Fleksy [iTunes] from the iOS App Store, while developers can visit Fleksy's website for SDK information.

    Perhaps iOS 8 will allow changing of the default system keyboard, so that Fleksy can be used in all apps?

    Nah. More likely, Apple will just steal the best ideas from Fleksy and roll them into an updated iOS 8 keyboard.

    Until this can be used in every app, it's kind of useless. Switching between keyboard types when you switch apps is too much of a context switch for me.

    Ditto on a smaller scale with the $ being the only currency symbol on the main symbols page. I sent a feedback mail (from within the app) requesting a UK English setting.

    An available workaround would be to perform the currency conversion each time from pounds to dollars.
