Assuming Apple doesn't introduce big changes to its software keyboard with iOS 8 this year, the folks at Fleksy may be our best hope for change now that they've opened the doors to all developers with an SDK.
Fleksy today announced the availability of its software development kit (SDK) to all iOS developers, a major step forward for users hoping for a third-party alternative keyboard for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
In December, Fleksy announced its ambitious plans with the launch of keyboard support for four apps, including the popular Launch Center Pro. At the time, the SDK was a closed beta, but today's release opens the doors to any and all developers.
"With its latest update, the Fleksy SDK is now completely free of charge, requires no sign up and allows any developer to implement it in minutes, with zero lines of code and without having to make any changes to their app at all," the company announced Thursday. "Switching between Fleksy and the iOS keyboard is also completely streamlined."
Additional Fleksy powered apps are also available today, including You Doodle, Write for iPhone, Tap Forms Organizer and Secure Database and Remoter VNC - Remote Desktop. Fleksy for iOS is a free app available from the App Store, and developers can download the SDK right now.
