Microsoft Word Flow Keyboard Lands on iOS

...

Microsoft has launched its predictive, one-handed keyboard in Apple's App Store.

Microsoft's Word Flow Keyboard for iOS is available now as a free download, and allows users to replace their existing Apple keyboard with Microsoft's alternative.

Microsoft Word Flow"Whether you're tapping or swiping, Word Flow predicts what you're trying to type and corrects mistakes," Microsoft writes in its App Store listing. "Word Flow intelligently suggests the next word in your sentence, and gets better at it over time. With access to your Contacts, Word Flow predicts the names of your contacts so you can go even faster."

Word Flow, which was initially shown off for Windows Phone, also supports one-handed typing. The keyboard sits at the bottom-corner of the iPhone and allows users to quickly type out messages with a single finger. Those who don't want the "arc" mode for one-handed typing can use it as a standard keyboard in landscape mode. 

For now, Word Flow is available only in the English language.

Microsoft's Word Flow garnered praise from those who used it, but it's one of many alternative keyboards in the App Store, including Swype and SwiftKey, which Microsoft acquired in February.

Word Flow is the brainchild of Microsoft Garage, where Microsoft's employees can work on technologies that don't relate to their jobs.
