0 23

American multinational technology company, Microsoft is bringing it’s Windows Phone keyboard to Apples iPhone.

The software giant is currently testing an early version of the keyboard internally, and will make it available to public testers soon.

Sources close to Microsoft revealed to The Verge that the iOS keyboard includes a special one-handed mode.

While the Windows 10 Mobile keyboard also has a one-handed mode, Microsoft’s iOS version is different.

The one-handed mode works on each side, allowing you to use either hand to swipe letters or type on the go. Microsoft’s Windows 10 Mobile keyboard simply shifts to the side to create a compact keyboard, instead of the fanned key layout used in the iOS version.

The iOS Word Flow keyboard supports gesture-based typing, similar to third-party alternatives like Swype, where the user drags their finger across the keys.

The intelligent software will also make suggestions, so you don’t always need to finish typing to get the word you need.

Microsoft is believed to be planning an Android version of the Word Flow keyboard, too. However this is planned for later in the year.

The Word Flow keyboard is so good at typing, it was used to set the Guinness World Record for fastest texting.
