    Default Beta Preview of Fleksy Keyboard Offered with Many Showing Excitement for iOS 8

    It was announced recently that Keyboard developer Fleksy, has its iOS keyboard alternative running on iOS 8. During this week’s WWDC 2014 keynote, Apple revealed that they would be supporting system wide implementations of the third-party keyboards. Fleksy is an alternative to the traditional keyboard and it boasts improved typing speeds by using automated word suggestions and an autocorrect engine that fixes errors. Users will also be able to complete common tasks that insert punctuations and spaces by using the gesture system.

    A screenshot of the keyboard on iOS 8 was tweeted by Fleksy, as well an invitation for people to register for a preview of the keyboard app. As of right now, users with iPhones and iPads running a beta version of iOS 8 can sign up for a preview of Fleksy’s website. When the public beta program goes live, users and customers will be notified via email. When iOS 8 launches this year, Fleksy won’t be the only third-party keyboard app available to users. Popular Android keyboard Swype and Swiftkey has confirmed that they plan on launching iOS 8-compatible versions of their app as well.

    We're delighted Apple has decided to embrace the importance of opening its platform to third party keyboards... We first brought a taste of our technology to iOS in January this year with the launch of the free note-taking app SwiftKey Note. Are we going to build SwiftKey Keyboard for iOS 8? Of course we are. We've already started, writes Swiftkey founders Ben Medlock and Jon Reynolds.
    Fleksy and Swiftkey both offer versions of their iPhone and iPad keyboards, but due to iOS constraints that prohibit system-wide installations, the functionality of the app is limited. When iOS 8 launches later this year, Apple will remove this restriction, allowing all keyboard makers to bring their app to Apple’s mobile platform. iOS 8 is available for developers only as of right now, and will be available to the public later this fall.

    Why do you say that? The Fleksy keyboard has emoji, you just don't invoke it through a smiley face button, hence why you don't see one in the screenshot...notice in the screenshot at the beginning there is an emoji heart lol

    I've tried the flesky keyboard app from the AppStore coz I was curious as to its abilities to get my words correct or not.
    I came to the conclusion that it wasn't as good as the default Apple keyboard at getting my spelling and words correct.
    Maybe flesky learns more as you use it, I'm not sure but my conclusion is that this keyboard, even if it is implemented in iOS8 won't be my keyboard of choice.
    The swipe across the screen with your thumb(or finger) whatever it may be called keyboard is the one for me.
