Microsoft kills popular Word Flow iOS keyboard 'experiment', suggests SwiftKey as replacement

Microsoft's Word Flow keyboard for iOS is no more

Word Flow featured many interesting concepts, including an arc layout, which allowed you to type with one hand.

It's been a well-known secret since iOS 9 that one of the best iPhone keyboards is made by one of Apple's oldest competitors.

Microsoft said it would hire all of SwiftKey's employees and that it would incorporate SwiftKey's technology that can predict what people want to type into its other products so as to speed up the the time it takes to write messages. Then in 2016 Microsoft Garage came out with Word Flow for iOS. But if you don't already own a copy of Microsoft's Word Flow, your window to buy one has closed. We encourage you to download the SwiftKey Keyboard from the App Store. I say "was" because Microsoft chose to pull the plug on the development and remove Word Flow from the App Store. There were plans to "integrate SwiftKey technology with our Guinness World Record Word Flow technology for Windows" but ended up bringing Word Flow features into SwiftKey instead.

SwiftKey has always been popular with iOS users. Those are impressive results for an app that launched initially on Android in 2010 and arrived on iOS less than two years ago.

The Word Flow experiment is now complete! The SwiftKey product team is frequently building and evaluating new features for SwiftKey and shipping updates.

You can download the universal SwiftKey Keyboard on the App Store.
