Flexpansion Keyboard FREE

Flexpansion Keyboard FREE


Flexpansion's advanced word prediction dramatically increases your typing speed in ALL apps. Type using abbreviations, like a txt msg, and Flexpansion automatically expands into full, correctly-spelled text.

Flexpansion provides everything you'd expect from a predictive text system, including fully-adaptive word completion, next word prediction, editable user dictionary and autocorrect. But also, our unique "Abbreviation expansion" mode understands all common abbreviation styles. For example:
* wd → would
* xprc → experience
* tfon → telephone
* 2mrw → tomorrow

No need to memorize anything. No need to pre-define abbreviations. Our Flexible Text Expansion engine deals with whatever you type and learns rapidly from your usage.

NEW - choose empty base language, then learn from text, to type in ONLY your own words. Add Shakespeare, technical writing, or another language.

The suggestion bar shows itself in this review on Play and messaging. But with browsers, maps & most other apps it is absent! Droid Maxx on 4.4.4. 24.3.7. The Edinburgh version works fine. But has no cursor Keys. Can You enable them? Purchased pro & now Edinburgh fails to show the Bar also. Update: Edinburgh works only in some browsers but the Pro breaks it.

Flexpansion is pretty spiffing I type, slowly, with one finger on a tablet or phone. Once I learned to let Flexpansion do the work speed and accuracy went right up. There are times I still forget to use it properly, but not too often. I encountered the installation gripe a some people have mentioned, but I knew that the bit where you appear to be stuck with nowhere to go, when selecting keyboards, is the bit Google/Android imposes on the installation sequence and going back one screen from the Google light green one allows you to get everything up and running pretty quickly. Flexpansion rewards the small amount of time needed to learn how it works and what the shorcuts are.
