By Microsoft Corporation
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Word Flow for iPhone, a Microsoft Garage project, is a blazing fast keyboard that comes with search (GIFs, restaurants, and more), free customizable themes, swipe, and Arc mode for comfortable one-handed typing.
• Whether you’re tapping or swiping, Word Flow predicts what you’re trying to type and corrects mistakes. It even predicts things from the web, like GIFs, restaurants, and more.
• Word Flow intelligently suggests the next word in your sentence, and gets better at it over time, as it learns based on your typing patterns.
• With access to your Contacts, Word Flow predicts the names of your contacts so you can go even faster.
Personalized – just how you like it
• You can customize Word Flow background using one of the images included in the app, or use your own favorite image.
• All the images included with the app are free.
Best for one-handed typing: Switch to Arc mode and easily reach keys on larger screens for a more comfortable one-handed typing experience.
Search built into the keyboard:
• Easily find and share GIFs, images, and emojis to better express yourself
• Find Contacts – when you need to share that person’s phone number
• Look up restaurants, news, videos, facts, weather forecasts, and much more
When you find something you want to send, just tap it, and that result will automatically stay in your history to make it even easier to find it again. If a result becomes outdated or irrelevant, you can always remove or refresh it.
Word Flow on iOS is optimized for iPhone, and supports English language only. Not all features are available on iPad.

•Added ability to search for things you already typed into a message. Just tap on the search box and your last few words will show up as one of the suggestions.
•Fixed more crashes.
Its mostly great
It let's me a lot of things that I love I really really really love it but 1) the period button needs to be moved to the right more to allow for more space for the space bar. If I type fast I always hit the period button instead of the space bar 2) it needs to either have an explicit language filter or learn words faster. You have to use a word like 20 times before it's added to the library and 3) it needs to use the word before and after to fix the previous word. If it had these features it would be perfect. Because I like the way out looks I use it everywhere on everything for everything but it can be tedious. There are so many new words I've never heard of that show up sometimes but I love the one handed option the regular landscape version can be complicated
Not enough room at the space bar key by the period key
Also many already complained the return key and the period keys are too BIG! This causes us to accidentally hit the period key instead of the space bar.
Please make return key Nd the period key a little smaller so there is more space bar key on the right side!
I like the period key options when depressed long enough to give us different options BUT that row of optional character keys need to set higher so we can see which key we are swiping to.
Lastly using the hard depress to move cursor it would be nice to go up or down in our documents.
Gets a lot of things right... but not enough to switch
If this keyboard could more closely mimic what the iPhone keyboard does in 3d touch, it would be nearly perfect. As it stands, the 3D Touch feature on this keyboard is near gimmick status. No haptic feedback to alert that it has been activated, it can only go left and right, not up and down and it doesn't allow multiple presses to do things like highlight words or sentences. I'm not sure if any of these features are simply not available for 3rd party devs but if that is not the case it is a great oversight.
