If you love using GIF images, given how expressive the content can be for messaging purposes on an iOS device, then you will definitely love this piece of news. The famous third-party Fleksy keyboard now comes integrated with Riffsy’s GIF Keyboard and the whole package is available for free as part of a promotion period.
Since the release of iOS 8 last year, plenty of third-party keyboard apps have piled up in the App Store, though in my opinion Fleksy is easily one of the better ones out of the bunch. The app has always been a paid offering however, but users who had been looking to buy Fleksy for a while now can grab the app absolutely free, with the GIF Keyboard integrated as well.
In a press release Fleksy says, “GIF Keyboard will now come pre-configured, making Fleksy the only major keyboard combining typing, GIFs, and emoji all in one place. The integration brings GIF Keyboard’s millions of GIFs and exclusive content partnerships with major TV networks and movie studios.”
Now called the Fleksy + GIF Keyboard, this brilliant piece of software now lets you search for GIFs directly from the keyboard so you’re never out of options. An often overlooked feature in iOS 8 is the platform’s ability to support GIFs as well, and as such, this is exactly what Fleksy and other GIF keyboards have capitalized on.
“The partnership makes it easier than ever before to share highly expressive content across iMessage, SMS, Twitter, email and Facebook. Users will be able to send GIFs instantly, right from within their main keyboard,” says the Fleksy team, further adding that the platform’s support for such content is the reason for its success in this genre.
Fleksy is making no secret of this new development with it terming the Fleksy + GiF Keyboard app as the “the ONLY Keyboard with GIF support and great autocorrect.” To really reach out to iOS users, the app is being promoted as a free download for a week, but once that time is up, it will go back to the regular price of $0.99 on the App Store.
