Fleksy was launched on the Android platform in December 2013 and quickly reached 2 million downloads. The iOS version of Fleksy was launched following the release of iOS 8. Since then, Fleksy has been the #1 paid app on App Store in 25 countries.
In addition to direct app sales, Fleksy also works closely with device manufacturers and mobile phone carriers around the world in order for users to incorporate Fleksy as a standard keyboard on touch screen smart devices.
