Sony Xperia Keyboard now available in Play Store

Sony Xperia owners have long enjoyed a great keyboard experience, and it’s about to get better. Following in the footsteps of Motorola and HTC, Sony has begun breaking their apps from the OS proper, this time bringing their keyboard to the Play Store. Along with a few tweaks, the keyboard can now enjoy the same update process of other apps.  

Fleksy 2.0 update brings cloud sync and badges

There is no shortage of third-party keyboard options for Android. And with that in mind, it looks like one of those options has recently been updated to version 2.0. The keyboard is Fleksy and the v2.0 update is touted as brining Cloud personalization and a new badge reward system. Nicely, there was also some other improvements and general fixes that came along with the 2.0 update.

SwiftKey beta update adds Evernote and Google+ personalization

We aren't necessarily convinced every SwiftKey user needs to be playing in the beta channel, though these series of updates are interesting to watch as they offer hints in terms of upcoming features. Having said that, the folks at SwiftKey have recently rolled out the latest beta release -- which brings some integration with Google+ and Evernote.

Minuum keyboard hands-on

The Minuum keyboard isn't new, however we did see the v2.0 release arrive in the Play Store earlier this morning. This latest release not only had the keyboard officially exiting the beta period, but it also brought a 30-day trial version for those not yet ready to fully commit. Minuum regularly sells for $3.99, so having a free trial available seems like a solid perk.

Minuum keyboard exits beta as v2.0, brings 30-day trial option

Keyboard options are one of the perks of using Android. There are numerous third party keyboard options available, some of which have proven easier to adopt. One of the slightly more difficult to initially grasp is Minuum, which at a quick glance -- looks rather different from the traditional QWERTY layout. Of course, it is really the regular layout, just minimized.

Fleksy update brings emoji and “My Fleksy” personalization

The Fleksy Keyboard app has recently been updated. This latest is currently available from the Play Store, and will bring the keyboard up to version 1.2.3. Perhaps key here, the changes that come along with the new version number. This time around there is emoji and something called My Fleksy.

SwiftKey 4.5 beta update improves emoji experience

SwiftKey v4.5 was first introduced back in December. That update was released as a beta, but perhaps more important -- it was one that added support for emoji. Also included in that update was an optional number row. While the beta releases are made available for all, they do have to be sideloaded, which means the update process is not as automatic as compared to the Play Store experience.
