With today's release of iOS 8, a number of new systemwide alternative keyboards will also be debuting in the App Store. Yesterday, we covered SwiftKey, and today sees the introduction of another major entrant: Fleksy.
Fleksy's primary claim to fame is speed, having been recognized as the fastest keyboard in the world. The keyboard relies on advanced autocorrect features to interpret input and includes extensive gesture support to make it easy for users to delete, add punctuation and spaces, or select an alternate autocorrect suggestion by swiping anywhere on the keyboard.
Fleksy also includes built-in support for hundreds of emoji, as well as a resizable keyboard and support for 40 languages at launch. And as with some other popular alternative keyboards, Fleksy learns from the user's typing patterns, improving its performance with time.
Fleksy arrives today as a $0.99 download with several colorful themes to allow users to personalize their keyboards, with additional premium themes available for a single $0.99 purchase. It is compatible with iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.

In his defense, my RSS reader that cached the story does indeed say it is free. This error must have been corrected very quickly because the article now says $0.99 :)
