You know the drill: a new update for Fleksy is released and I inevitably give it a shot, despite the unbelievable instability of all third-party keyboards on iOS 8 thus far. I tried it out because the feature list here really is quite amazing:
- new themes (OK)
- new keyboard extension for GIFs (cool)
- new extension for a numerical pad (great!)
- new extension to help with cursor movement (cool!!)
- an even faster way to add punctuations (at last!)
The newly-added extensions are modular, and you can have three of them active at any one time. There are a few more of them, but I only tried the ones I was actually interested in today.
I actively tested Fleksy 5.0 at work and experienced at least 10 crashes across my iPhone and iPad, which is too bad, because this keyboard really is awesome. I really, really want to use it, but the stability in iOS 8 just isn’t there yet, and there are too many times where I’m left with a simply blank keyboard. It’s astounding that Apple hasn’t fixed this yet.
