HWM (Singapore) - - Learn -

Sim­i­lar to the Google Key­board, or the Swype/SwiftKey third-party vir­tual key­boards on An­droid, the lat­est stock key­board on Win­dows Phone 8.1 lets you en­ter a word by slid­ing your fin­ger from one let­ter to the next, com­plete with a pre­dic­tion sys­tem that sug­gests al­ter­na­tive words (emoti­cons too!) to speed up typ­ing. By learn­ing your writ­ing style, and in­te­grat­ing with the data on your phone, it’s able to pull off smarts like rec­og­niz­ing con­tact names as you swipe, and sug­gest­ing the next ap­pro­pri­ate word when it de­tects you’re typ­ing in an­other lan­guage.

Word Flow key­board lets you glide your fin­gers over the keys to im­prove typ­ing speed.
