Back in mid-January, word broke out that Microsoft was working to avail its WordFlow keyboard on iOS. WordfFow is the main keyboard app on Microsoft’s Windows mobile platform.
A new user-submitted video uploaded by Apple fansite MacRumors seems to all but confirm the same amid news that the keyboard application is under private beta testing.
Before the one-handed function (see screen grabs below) and the “flow” feature, the keyboard app will also have basic features like auto correction and word prediction. Users will also have access to themes. A built-in image library is also said to be included.
Since the app is said to be in a private beta, it may be a while before it gets released to the iTunes store for all users.
Apple introduced the ability to use third-party keyboards to the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad with version 8 of iOS. The move saw popular keyboard applications on Android like Swype and SwiftKey (which has since been acquired by Microsoft) also become available on iOS. Just last week, Microsoft made available Hub, a keyboard app, to iOS users.
