Microsoft Word Flow iOS keyboard now available
Less than two weeks ago, Microsoft announced that its Word Flow keyboard app for iOS is in the closed beta stage. Back then, the Redmond giant did not mention any release date. However, there is no need to talk about that anymore, since Microsoft Word Flow has just become available to anyone in the US via Apple's App Store.
This release available to everyone has the same features as the closed beta - with its help, the user gains the ability to tap or swipe out words, but it also offers one-handed texting capabilities. When using this mode, the app simply places letters in an arc so they can be reached using just a thumb. The look and feel of the Word Flow app can be changed by adding custom background images.
Microsoft originally developed Word Flow for Windows Phone, but also offered it to users of the desktop flavor of Windows 10. Next to Word Flow, Microsoft's Garage team released another similar app on iOS, named Hub. The difference is that Hub mainly targets Office 365 users.
