Fleksy is a free keyboard app that makes it easy to type without looking and boasts a powerful autocomplete function. Developed by startup Syntellia, it is available as an iOS app and as a system-wide keyboard in beta for Android. The state-of-the-art text input system enables sighted, visually impaired and blind people to quickly and easily type on touchscreen mobile phones and tablets.

Fleksy is set to revolutionize the way people think about mobile devices and to challenge the traditional barriers in touch-screen typing for everyone. Featuring Syntellia’s patent pending technologies, Fleksy uses the familiar QWERTY layout, coupled with probably the most powerful text prediction engine out there.

Text Input System Pairs With Leap Motion To Enable Typing In Mid-Air

To use Fleksy you lightly tap approximately where you think each letter is, then swipe right for a space. To change a word or punctuation, you simply swipe down. You can add punctuation by swiping right again after a space.

It also has more functions for entering punctuation marks, typing custom words (like names), and includes innovative ways to help you type easily. Users can text, email, tweet and post on Facebook directly from Fleksy. You can check it out in the video below:

The developers have recently previewed an integration with the Leap Motion Controller, which would allow users to use gestures to type in mid-air:
