This system is completely supplementary to our trademark, fluid tap typing. The predictions will be displayed in the Highlights Extension row and can be toggled from Fleksy Settings (Display Predictions).

How to enable
Display Predictions is Off by default. You can enable it by going to Settings and turning on Display Predictions. Make sure you have the Highlights extension added and selected.

Note: Predictions launch for 45 Fleksy languages; Support for Russian, Turkish, Arabic and Korean is coming soon.

This is a completely new endeavor for us, so we count on your feedback on both quality and usability. Let us know what you think!

Fleksy 8.0.4 is rolling out!

Fleksy 8.0.4 Changelog:

BATTERY
MORE Reduction in battery consumption

We found another case where Mixpanel was establishing network connections too frequently. By default, Mixpanel uploads any accumulated events every 1 minute or when sessions end. However, since Fleksy (as a keyboard service) has a very long life cycle and is such a big part of our daily use, pushing events this frequently doesn’t make sense. We now force batch a lot of this activity so that uploads will happen at most every 1 hour. Of course, if no activity with the keyboard is registered within a timeframe, no events would be generated so Mixpanel won’t spin up at all. This optimization will help for cases where we use our keyboard for longer than 1 minute at a time. ex. Let’s say you have a 15’ intense chat session with a friend, involving emoji, GIFs, Stickers and changing theme to reflect your mood. Previously, it was possible for Fleksy to establish a network connection up to 15 times. Now it will only establish 1.

Please let us know your experience and if you notice an improvement over previous versions.

★ For user themes, the key pop shape is reset to default after editing a theme
★ Numbers Row keys are hidden when in Emoji view
★ A crash in Japanese when tapping word predictions in the secondary predictions drop down view
★ Other various crashes

Fleksy 8.0.0 Changelog:

BATTERY
Reduced battery consumption

We've spent the past month taking the project apart and investigating methods to stress test battery consumption.

Happy to say that with Fleksy 8.0, we are releasing a set of what we believe are very significant fixes and optimizations that should dramatically reduce Fleksy's battery consumption.

Now, in the Android world it is - unfortunately - very hard to simulate a user's daily battery consumption in a lab environment. Meaning, it's hard to know how successful we've been.

That is why we rely on you, our users, to let us know how we are doing.

Since this is an uphill battle that we take with you, we want to be transparent about what we fixed. In detail:

1. We discovered that Mixpanel (our Analytics service) would spin up when in any app that had a textfield, even if the keyboard itself did not ever appear. Keyboard services get a callback when a textfield exists and we had mistakenly Mixpanel code respond to this callback. This is very bad because Mixpanel would in turn spin up the network connection for something completely unnecessary. We no longer do this unnecessary thing and we expect some big gains here.

2. This discovery led us to look into the onStartInput() further and optimize our calls. Things that we would previously call on every tap, like what Action should the Enter key have in this textfield, we now only do once. Comparatively less gains here, but still significant and definitely more correct code.

3. Feedback manager optimizations. This is the set of functions that play back sounds and trigger vibrations on taps. We used to call somewhat expensive functions to perform these operations on every tap. We no longer do that.

Please let us know your experience and if you notice an improvement over previous versions.

NEW UI
★ Emoji, GIFs and Stickers are now more fluid as they animate in and out. We also took out those pesky loading spinners - everybody hates a loading spinner ;)
We hope this change will make switching between typing and expressing even more seamless and less distracting.

★ Various crashes
