Fleksy, the makers of a third party virtual keyboard that has been available for Android and iOS for sometime, and also for the Gear 2, have struck a new partnership with Samsung, which will mean that it will have its keyboard pre-installed in the newly announced Samsung Gear S smartwatch, and will allow you to type in every application on the device, SYSTEM WIDE!!!!
"We are delighted to announce our first OEM partnership today, and we are excited to be part of the Samsung ecosystem” said Ioannis Verdelis, Founder and CEO of Fleksy. “This is a big milestone for Fleksy, and we plan to solidify our position as the leading typing technology for smart devices over the coming months”
This is something we were hoping for Fleksy and Samsung to do since we saw the app in action at the Tizen Developer Conference earlier this year in San Francisco. The company claims to have the faster keyboard in the world with its unique autocorrect technology, and the keyboard is bundled in with the Gear S for FREE.
“With thousands of daily downloads of Fleksy Messenger, we are already publishing one of the Top 3 selling apps of the Gear ecosystem” said Kosta Eleftheriou, Founder and CEO of Fleksy. “We are very excited by the growth of the wearable tech market, and proud Fleksy has already established itself as the leader for typing on watches”
Fleksy is already available for Samsung Gear 2 / Gear 2 Neo users and the company is teasing a major update to the application that is coming soon. Keep tuned in to Tizen Experts !!!
