We’ve been seeing incredible momentum over the last few months here at Fleksy. Thanks to all of you, we’ve had over 2 million downloads on Android and our launch on iOS was a breakout hit – rising to #1 on the App Store in 25 countries.
That kind of momentum makes news like today’s announcement of a new $2M funding round for possible. We’re pleased to announce we’ve closed $2M in venture funding from Digital Garage, Eniac Ventures, Middleland Capital, Highland Capital Partners, Militello Capital, and other investment partners.
We plan to use this latest round of funding to continue to aggressively improve our product offerings on both Android and iOS, and keep building on our position as leaders in the space.
“We have already shipped three significant updates to our iOS product in the last month,” said Ioannis Verdelis, Founder and COO of Fleksy. “We’re updating and improving our keyboard app faster than anyone in the market, and already enjoy the highest ratings of any major player. The funding will enable us to maintain this momentum.”
To celebrate, today we’re shipping our Android 3.3 update, which improves Fleksy’s core accuracy and brings a couple new features. Most importantly, we’ve added the option to change the backspace and shift key layout, to put them on the last letter row – a much requested option. To enable this, just go to Advanced Settings and select “Disable Legacy Button Layout”.
We’re also putting our paid Android app on sale today for $.99 through Friday. Go try it out if you haven’t!
