This is the Warenotice review of Microsoft's Word Flow keyboard for iOS.
The following is a transcript of our Word Flow keyboard for iOS review video, which is embedded above.
Microsoft’s Word Flow keyboard for iOS is finally available on the App Store. This curvy, customizable keyboard is quite a sight to see, but should you get it? Let’s find out. This is the Warenotice review of Microsoft's Word Flow keyboard for iOS.
So the main, eye-catching, standout part of the Word Flow keyboard is a feature known as Arc mode. Basically, Arc mode is when Word Flow curves around either the bottom right or bottom left corner of the screen, making it easier to type on it with one hand.
Quite honestly, Arc mode is downright amazing. Its shape follows your thumb’s natural movements, creating an effortless, almost magical feeling when you glide your thumb around Word Flow to type. In combination with Word Flow’s great, however definitely not perfect, autocorrect, you get the sensation that you don’t even have to put any effort into typing anymore.
If you like emojis, Word Flow’s got you covered with a ton of emojis built right into the keyboard. Although the emojis don’t have any skin tone variations which does pose an issue, the emojis look like they’re spinning on a wheel when Word Flow is in Arc mode. I’m not going to lie, the spinning emoji wheel is pretty fun to play with.
Moving on from Word Flow’s functionality, the keyboard is also extremely visually appealing. It includes very high levels of customization, and has nine different themes to date. There are three standard keyboard themes, which are called ‘Word Flow Themes.’ These consist of a light theme, a dark theme, and a sort of color shifting theme that I like to call the chameleon theme, because it changes between light and dark depending on which keyboard tone the app that you’re typing in wants.
The six other themes, which are image-based, look surprisingly good. Unlike some themes in other keyboards that are way too extravagant to actually use, these themes don’t look bad in other apps. They actually look nice.
You can even make you own themes with your own images, for maximum customization. When you make a theme, you can choose whether the theme is light or dark and whether it has a gradient overlaying your image or not. You can also choose the theme’s various colors.
Now that you’ve seen everything that Word Flow has to offer, let’s get back to the big question: should you get it? Yes, I think that you should definitely give it a try. It’s free and currently only available in English in the App Store in the United States. Personally, I really like Word Flow. It’s great to type on, great to look at, and it really gives you something different, something interesting to use on your iOS device. Therefore, I totally recommend trying out Word Flow.
