Microsoft’s Word Flow Keyboard Finally Arrives on iOS



Ten days ago, Microsoft confirmed all that we had been hearing about its plans to bring to the iPhone the keyboard app found on its Windows smartphones by inviting users to try out the app. That day has come to pass. The Word Flow keyboard is now available on the iTunes store from where users of iOS devices can download it for free.

The keyboard brings with it next word prediction ala Quick Type, custom backgrounds and a circular layout that makes it easy to type on a device using just one hand, something which may come in handy for those using the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6S Plus.

Unfortunately, the keyboard app is only accessible to those in the United States at the moment. Also, language support is limited to US English alone. There is no word on when it will be available to users worldwide but it is likely just a matter of time before that happens.
