Fleksy Keyboard Goes Free Forever, Launches an Improved GIF and Sticker Content Page

Forever Free, Google Play's Top Developer, Consolidated View of GIFs and Stickers

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - July 08, 2015) - Fleksy, the world's fastest keyboard, announces it will be available for free today and forever moving forward. Being awarded with Best of App Store, Google Play Editor's choice and most recently Google Play's Top Developer, makes this a mature product that everyone should, and now can, enjoy for free.

By making the keyboard available for free, Fleksy is able to serve a much larger and more diverse set of users. With this increased user base, Fleksy will be focused on delivering new and exciting product improvements across all languages.

"We want every smartphone user to have the opportunity to experience fast, expressive, and intuitive typing," said Fleksy's Co-Founder and CEO, Kosta Eleftheriou. "We believe the best way to do this is to make the app free for everyone."

To thank users that previously purchased the app, Fleksy will be offering brand new themes and extension slots worth $8 for FREE as a gift. For those users that enjoy the option of upgrading their keyboard, Fleksy will continue to provide premium content via in-app purchases.

Going free is not the only big update to the Fleksy app. There's also an improved rich content view called Highlights. Meaning, Fleksy will better assist with GIF, sticker and other content discovery based on what the user types. Instead of manually searching for stickers and GIFs on separate pages, the user now only needs to tap on the auto-recommended hashtag (Highlight) and Fleksy takes them to an integrated page of relevant content all in one convenient place.

You can download Fleksy here: Google Play and App store
