Fleksy 5.0 gives you more control over your keyboard with extensions and new themes

Popular third-party keyboard Fleksy has launched a major update today with version 5.0, expanding the capabilities of the keyboard, and letting users personalize it in new ways. Fleksy now lets you extend the keyboard, while also adding several new themes to their lineup.

Extensions in Fleksy let you change the keyboard to suit your needs. Fleksy 5.0 comes with five extensions/seven extensions, including a GIF keyboard, cursor control through the spacebar, and a one-handed mode. To activate extensions that add an extra row to the keyboard, swipe up with a finger/two fingers on the top row of the keyboard. You can have up to three extensions active at a time.

Fleksy's other updates include a number of new theme packs, including branded theme packs for Frozen and The Hunger Games. There are now 30 premium themes, including a new theme that changes color depending on the app that you're using. Fleksy for Android has also added Launcher functionality.

Fleksy 5.0 is rolling out on the Google Play Store right now.
