San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 24, 2014
Fleksy, the award-winning touchscreen keyboard company, today announced it is providing the first ever touchscreen keyboard on the new Samsung Gear 2, unveiled at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Spain.
Fleksy is the first keyboard app developer to integrate with the Samsung Gear 2, making it possible for users to send and respond to SMS messages straight from their wrist. “Fleksy’s patent-pending technology is uniquely positioned for wearable devices,” said Ioannis Verdelis, COO of Fleksy. “Fleksy allows users to accurately type on any device, regardless of size, and we are very excited to work with Samsung to finally bring this unique technology to the Gear 2.0.”
Sending and replying to text messages from the Gear 2 will work in the same way users text message on their smart device. Users will be able to access all contact information, messages and threads allowing them to compose, send and reply to messages instantly from their Gear device using the Fleksy keyboard.
“This is an important milestone in our mission to make touchscreen typing easier on wearable devices. We are now bridging the gap between your smartwatch and smartphone, making it easier for you to communicate directly from your wrist,” said Ioannis.
The Fleksy app will be available for demo at the Samsung Unpacked event taking place at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Fleksy is a revolutionary keyboard powered by patent-pending technology that makes typing on any device fast, accurate and so easy you can type without looking. Its unique language algorithm founded on Geometric Intelligence moves beyond text prediction and autocorrect to give a much more accurate and easier typing experience than other keyboards. Winner of the 2013 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Award, Fleksy is the first keyboard app to be demonstrated on a 3D gesture system (Leap Motion); the first to be demonstrated on a smartwatch (Omate) and the first to arrive on iOS. Fleksy’s award-winning design and technology is backed by venture capital firms including Highland Capital Partners and Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers.
