The folks over at Fleksy are always working hard to bring you the next big thing when it comes to typing. The app is updated just about every month with what seems like 1,000 improvements every time. We’ve got another one here, and if you’re at all interested in Arabic or Chinese, you should take note.
Fleksy has just updated with an all-new Arabic keyboard. Though it’s only in beta for right now, it should get the job done. Not only is an Arabic keyboard option available, Fleksy is teasing typing in Chinese in this teaser video. There’s no word yet as to when it will launch officially, but you can head here to be one of the first ones to know. Take a look at the video below to see how it will work.

Fleksy adds new premium themes, launches Arabic beta, demos typing in Chinese on XiaoMi Mi 3
SAN FRANCISCO — August 7, 2014 — Fleksy, the fastest smartphone keyboard in the world, issued an update today, introducing 4 new themes, and the first beta launch of Arabic language support. The release expands Fleksy’s potential market by more than 300 million native Arabic speakers worldwide.
Continuing its international expansion efforts, Fleksy also released the first ever demo of Chinese typing – on a Xiaomi phone and a Samsung smartwatch. The demo invites testers to register for early beta access to its much anticipated Chinese launch.
With more than 100,000 requests for Arabic language support, the company aims to strengthen its footing in the EMEA region with today’s release. The aggressive language expansion by Fleksy has already brought the total number of languages to 40, up from just 2 earlier this year.
“As the keyboard space is heating up, there has been incredible demand to bring Fleksy to different markets worldwide, both from consumers as well as OEMs. Today’s release shows our commitment to serve all markets and demonstrates how our technology can be applied to any language, and bring a refreshingly better typing experience on any platform, including iOS later this fall” said CEO Kosta Eleftheriou.
In addition to Arabic, the company demonstrated for the first time how Chinese input will work, and opened up its Chinese Beta registration page. The demos were performed on a Xiaomi Mi 3 phone, as well as a Samsung Gear smartwatch. “There is a massive market in Asia, and typing on small screens is an even bigger problem in that part of the world. We have been working hard to create the next step in the evolution of the keyboard, and today we wanted to share some of that progress with our growing fan base in China and beyond” said COO Ioannis Verdelis.

Fleksy is a next-generation keyboard powered by patent-pending technology that makes typing on any device fast, accurate and so easy you can even type without looking. Fleksy recently broke the Guinness World Record for fastest typing on a touchscreen keyboard (May 2014).
Its unique language algorithm founded on Geometric Intelligence moves beyond text prediction and autocorrect, to give a much more accurate and easier typing experience than last-generation keyboards.
Winner of the prestigious “Golden Apple” award, Fleksy is the first keyboard to enable full-speed typing by blind iPhone users. Winner of the 2013 CES “Innovations Design and Engineering Award”, Fleksy is also the first keyboard app to be shipped on a SmartWatch, the first to arrive on iOS, the first to work on 3D gesture systems (Leap Motion) and the first app developer to integrate with the Samsung Gear 2.
Fleksy’s award-winning design and technology is backed by venture capital including Highland Capital Partners and Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. To learn more about Fleksy, visit http://www.fleksy.com.
