The developers behind popular third-party keyboard Fleksy today announced the debut of a new custom theme builder for a keyboard with deeper personalization. With the custom keyboard feature, the Fleksy keyboard can be customized with a range of unique colors, photos, and other effects.

Fleksy has long had different themes available in the app as additional in-app purchases, allowing users to adjust the look of the keyboard, but its new options take customization even further. As can be seen in the image below, a photo can be used underneath a keyboard for a one-of-a-kind look.


The background color of the keyboard can be customized, and users can also select specific colors for things like keys, word suggestions, and autocorrected words. According to Fleksy, its built-in themes have been popular with users, so the idea was to allow them to create personalized content that can be changed and updated on a regular basis.


Custom themes created by Fleksy users can be used on their own devices and also shared with friends. A sharing tool within the app makes it easy for themes to be shared with other users. Theme recipients who have the Fleksy app on their iOS devices can install new themes with a click, while those who are not current Fleksy users will be prompted to download the app.

Fleksy Keyboard can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Kind of neat.

I think I'd like Fleksy + Swype gestures combined... but I'd also need the Dictation/mic button. It's on Apple now to securely enable that on 3rd-party keyboards. That's one reason I keep ending up going back to the iOS default keyboard.

Not going to happen, considering Apple's protection of user privacy and third party developers' disregard for same.

MySpace all over again. Sometimes we don't need customization.
That's why options are great--don't care about something, simply don't use it, and it's basically thee same as it not even being there then.
