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.

The Greatest Keyboard Flow has become the only keyboard I use. Also, I must say that I'm quite impressed with the developer's response to suggestion. I requested that the letters Þþ and Ðð be added, and on that day an update was released which included them. Support for several different languages came four days later (something I said I was interested in seeing). If I could give six stars, I would do so without hesitation.

is a very nice keyboard interesting concept and seems to work in the few hours i have used it. only one problem i find is adding words to custom dictionary. I wish there was a way to enter them by editing some file so i can enter all at the same time. **Edit** I have found that the app uses the android custom directory that could be easily edited, imported or exported using UDM manager. Even better !!

Excellent but needs quicker smileys Getting used to it slowly but surely after a few hours of use, I wish I knew about this sooner. Over a year ago I started using kii keyboard with colemak for the reason of better letter arrangement for swyping but this seems better still :) one thing that is needed through is an easy to assess smiley list by long pressing the return key.
