Fleksy free on Android (for a week), now with GIF keyboard

GIFs, together with emoticons, have officially taken over our digital communication process. Now we can talk to friends without typing a single letter and yet we still understand each other. Late last year Fleksy became the first virtual keyboard to have a GIF extension, allowing you to insert your favorite reactions and moving images so they become part of the conversation. Now, in their latest update, they have upgraded it into a GIF keyboard, along with various other new and improved features.

SwiftKey launches Greenhouse with new Clarity Keyboard in beta

SwiftKey is looking into launching several new "experimental" projects and apps under its Greenhouse initiative. One of the first things they're launching now is a brand new, cleaner, less distracting keyboard called Clarity.

SwiftKey Hub now available for easier access to features, settings

It may still be in its beta phase, but it looks like SwiftKey for Android is bringing out all the bells and whistles with every update, to make you realize you need to get it as your new virtual keyboard for your smartphone.

New HTC devices to have TouchPal as default keyboard

Starting with its brand new flagship, the HTC M9 series, all of the OEM's new devices will now have TouchPal as their default input engine. This means that they have technically replaced Swype, which has been their default keyboard for the past years, although no official communication has been made regarding this change. HTC did announce that the brand new M9 smartphone is now using TouchPal, but did not comment as to why they've made the change.

Acer now to “ship” Swype virtual keyboard to selected devices

If you have an Acer smartphone, specifically some of the newer ones, and if you're tired or bored of using the built-in keyboard, your OEM has great news for you. They have just signed a partnership with app developer Nuance and this means that virtual keyboard Swype will be heading to your smartphone pretty soon. It will take you a bit of time to learn its continuous touch keyboard, but once you've gotten the hang of it, normal keyboads will soon lose its appeal for you.

Swype update: more languages, emoji support, floating keyboard

Virtual keyboards have become not just an alternative, but sometimes a necessity for people who are not satisfied with just the default keyboard of their devices.

They've added support for several new languages, a floating keyboard, and most exciting of all (well, for those who are crazy about them) is emoji support.

Swiftkey releases Chinese version for Android devices

The Chinese New Year is still a few days away but Chinese-speaking (or rather, typing) Android users are getting an early present, as virtual keyboard SwiftKey has released the official Chinese version for smartphones and tablets.

Minuum update: better spacing, more languages, new themes

Virtual keyboards have been gaining more popularity among mobile users who are not satisfied anymore with their smartphone or tablet's default keyboard.

TouchPal update: Material Design, more emojis

When chatting with your friends and loved ones on mobile devices, sometimes, words are not enough. Some emotions are better expressed through emojis.

TouchPal is one of those apps, and the newest update brings more improved features to the virtual keyboard.

Minuum update: multiple languages at once, material design

With the global community becoming smaller and more connected due to the Internet and digital technology, more and more people are becoming bilingual or even multi-lingual, in either business and/or in their personal lives. Sometimes, when communicating with other people, they even use two or more languages at the same time. Virtual keyboard Minuum is giving this kind of users an easier time by giving the app simultaneous multilingual capabilities.
