The iPhone has an awesome new keyboard… and it’s made by Microsoft

As hinted in recent months, Microsoft has launched its Windows 10 Mobile Word Flow keyboard for Apple’s iPhone.

They keyboard, which replaces the traditional grid with an arch, is designed to enable one-digit tapping or swiping with a single hand.

For iPhone users opting for the larger-screened 5.7-inch iPhone 6 Plus and 6s Plus handsets, who find it difficult to type with on hand.

Users will also be able to customise the look and feel of the keyboard by adding a custom photo to the background.

Much like the stock iOS keyboard Word Flow also boasts word predictions and suggestions that’ll improve the more the keyboard is used.

The app from the Microsoft Garage incubator also supports contact integration, but is only available in US English right now.  

The app can be downloaded from the App Store right now, with an Android version rumoured to be on the way.

This is the second keyboard Microsoft has released on iPhone in a month. Earlier in April, Microsoft released the Hub keyboard enabling users to easily share documents from OneDrive.
