Fleksy today announced a new partnership with Riffsy, which will integrate Riffsy's GIF Keyboard into the Fleksy Keyboard for iOS, giving users access to GIFs within Fleksy for the first time. With the addition of GIFs, Fleksy Keyboard is now able to offer millions of GIFs along with its existing keyboard capabilities and emoji integration.

Riffsy's GIF Keyboard is a popular choice for users who want to insert GIFs directly into iMessages and other iPhone correspondence, and all of the GIF Keyboard features will now be available in Fleksy, including search, the ability to browse by category, and access to trending GIFs.

The partnership makes it easier than ever before to share highly expressive content across iMessage, SMS, Twitter, email and Facebook. Users will be able to send GIFs instantly, right from within their main keyboard. All this is made possible thanks to the new features of iOS 8 and the great GIF support that the Apple platform has offered.

In celebration of the new partnership, Fleksy is running a promotion that makes the Fleksy Keyboard free to download for the course of the next week. The app is normally priced at $0.99, and this marks the first time Fleksy has gone free since it became a full keyboard replacement alongside the release of iOS 8.

Fleksy Keyboard can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Why can't a 3rd part keyboard just locally store all new word entries and be done with it.
They can... but a lot are opting to allow word list syncing between devices which requires internet access which requires full access. Word list syncing is often something I wish the built in Apple keyboard would do.... if iCloud is supposedly secure enough for keychain syncing surely word lists would be ok.

The full access warning is essentially stating that the keyboard app knows everything you type because otherwise it wouldn't be able to work, so if you allow it access to the internet it _can_ upload everything you type to a server somewhere but it doesn't necessarily follow that it _will_. Down to which developers you trust at the end of the day...

The important point about whether or not this keyboard requires "full access" was left out of the article.
