Fleksy 5.0 for iPad: Now With Extensions!

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.
