Hi Fleksy Friends,
Today we’re announcing some big news at Fleksy. Our team is joining Pinterest! As some of you may know, it’s a bit of nostalgic timing as this month marks four years since Fleksy first launched in the iOS store as a standalone app for our wonderful community of blind users – at a time when 3rd party keyboards were not yet supported on the platform.
Over the years it has been our great pleasure to bring you the fastest and most reliable typing experience. Building a keyboard, especially a good keyboard, is not an easy task. In fact, it’s really hard. Without all of your support and feedback it wouldn’t have been possible. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you.
Fleksy will remain available in the app stores for the foreseeable future, so no need to worry about being forced to re-learn to type on a alternative keyboard 🙂
As a tribute to our incredible community of users we have made the decision to open-source some of the Fleksy components that the blind and visually impaired community grew to love. We trust you’ll do great things with it.
We’ll update you here and send out a tweet when the open-sourced project is ready for your contributions.
Meanwhile, if you have any questions please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wishing you all the best,
Ashley & Kosta
