Fleksy Continues to Become More Than Just a Keyboard, Expands Content Functionality by Partnering With URX

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - August 13, 2015) - Fleksy, the world's fastest keyboard, announces a partnership with mobile deep-linking company, URX.

A single integration with the URX API enables Fleksy to go beyond communication-based functionality. Allowing the virtual keyboard to expand the auto-suggestion "Highlight" feature, adding "actions" alongside GIFs, stickers and other rich content.

By utilizing the auto-suggestion hashtag, Fleksy can unobtrusively assist users with actions based on the context of what they type. For example, when "Drake" is part of a conversion, users are presented song recommendations inside SoundCloud and Spotify. So, in addition to suggesting relevant Drake stickers and GIFs, Fleksy will make it easy for users to listen to Drake's music with a single click from within the keyboard.

This powerful partnership will enable Fleksy to assist users with actions never before seen on a keyboard. Initially, the functionality will include music, events and transportation, with more categories soon to follow.

Smart emoji prediction is also included in the latest update. As the user types, Fleksy will automatically suggest relevant emoji right above the keyboard. Allowing the user to enjoy an effortless emoji-full conversation.
