Fleksy 5.0 gives you more control over your keyboard with extensions and new themes

Fleksy, the third-party keyboard for iPhone and iPad has launched a major update today with version 5.0, expanding the capabilities of the keyboard, and letting users personalize it in new ways. Fleksy now lets you extend the keyboard, while also adding several new themes to their lineup.

Extensions in Fleksy let you change the keyboard to suit your needs. Fleksy 5.0 comes with five extensions/seven extensions, including a GIF keyboard, cursor control through the spacebar, and a one-handed mode. To activate extensions that add an extra row to the keyboard, swipe up with a finger/two fingers on the top row of the keyboard. You can have up to three extensions active at a time.

Fleksy is also adding a number of theme packs, including branded theme packs for Frozen and The Hunger Games. There are now 30 premium themes, including a new theme that changes color depending on the app that you're using.

Fleksy 5.0 is rolling out on the App Store right now.

  • Can anyone tell me if the case of the keys on the keyboard reflects the shift state? I'm so sick of guessing on the stock iOS keyboard...
  • The arrow goes dark black when you click it. It’s a great keyboard especially now with the number row above the letters Sent from the iMore App
  • No, the case stays the same. I can't understand this behavior in any keyboard at this point, seriously how hard it is it to do that?
  • There is a setting to toggle case sensitive keys
  • Where?
  • Yeah. There's an option for that in settings
  • I asked 'where' above, but now I'm thinking you are confused as to the settings and their meaning. Auto Capitalization doesn't mean change the keyboard to upper case when caps lock is on and lower case when not. Maybe thats what you were thinking? Course I could also not know where to find this setting, but...
  • Until Apple allows voice dictation access a third party keyboard just doe not fit my workflow. As much as I hate the stock Apple keyboard I use voice dictation to reply to text/imessage and emails constantly.
  • I tried it and it's nice but with no support for a second language is a no no for me Sent from the iMore App
