Flow

Flow


Flow is an on-screen keyboard that enables exceptionally fast text input on your phone. It combines many different features to improve typing speed:

- Enter each word in a single gesture (similar to Swype or SlideIT). Touch the first letter, move your finger smoothly from one key to the next, and lift it when you reach the end of the word. Spaces between words are inserted automatically.

- The keyboard layout is optimized by analyzing common patterns in English words. The QWERTY layout used by most keyboards was designed for typing with two hands, and it's a terrible layout for on-screen use. The Flow layout is optimized so common words can be entered with the shortest, smoothest path possible.

- Keys are large and evenly spaced for improved accuracy.

- The most common punctuation symbols are directly available without needing a modifier key.

- Double letters are recognized automatically. You don't need to "scribble over" them like with Swype.

- When a word is recognized, it flashes briefly on top of the keyboard. You don't need to move your eyes away from the keyboard to verify it.

- Long-press any key for a selection of alternate characters.

- Supports voice input.

- Supports English (American and British), French, German, Portuguese, and Spanish.

Try Flow today and start improving your typing speed - guaranteed, or your money back! (How many other free keyboards dare to promise THAT?) And please send feedback so we can continue to improve Flow. Suggestions and bug reports are always welcome. Flow is an open source project.

Innovative but needs better looks It's ugly looks are a major deterrent, if the dev made some improvements in that department it would be nice

Best keyboard app ever! Best keyboard app ever... and it's free! Smart and innovative. It's a short learning curve to master and you're rewarded with the fastest text ever, all with one thumb.

Nice but has a lot of small issues I've used this keyboard for the last year. I love the layout and speed but the idiosyncrasies of nonsensical word choices, capitalization and auto spacing issues, illogical URL input, and a host of other very small issues and annoyances is finally driving me me nuts. If the developer would put some effort into making the input experience more user friendly like it is on most other sliding keyboards I'd give it five stars. However with all that said, I still use it because of it's accuracy.

Absolutely love this keyboard. From concept to execution, this thing just rocks. Short, steep learning curve that is worth every minute '. (Note:Much faster word recog' now.) More efficient rt away but several weeks b4 really fluent (MUST read manual & TAKE tutorial!). All other keyboards now feel slow, inefficient, clumsy. Similar jump in productivity to 1st switching frm tapping each key, to swipe-style entry. Much lower typo/error rate thx 2 keypad layout. Sys dictionary 1st place searched (enter misinterpreted words there 4 instant recognition), alternative & special characters appear on long press of intuitive (looks like it) key(s). I'll never leave Android thanks to Flow
