Microsoft is Bringing Its Word Flow Keyboard to iOS

Microsoft is planning to bring the Word Flow keyboard from Windows Phone to iOS, reveals an email sent to some Windows Insiders and obtained by The Verge..

In an email to some Windows Insider testers, obtained by The Verge, Microsoft is looking for iPhone users to trial the Word Flow keyboard. It's not clear when Word Flow will be released publicly on iOS, but Microsoft is already ready to test it more broadly so it will likely arrive in the coming months. Microsoft's Windows Phone version of Word Flow includes autocorrect, suggestions, gestures, and the ability to swipe letters (like Swype) to type out words.

The Word Flow keyboard is considered one of the best features of Windows Phone and now that Apple allows third party keyboards, Microsoft could easily release it for iOS. The move is bound to disappoint some Windows Phone customers but under Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella the company has been steadily releasing its software across many platforms.

Check out a video demo of Word Flow below and please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.
