Microsoft’s Word Flow keyboard for iPhone is stepping up its fight against Google Gboard by adding built-in Bing search. You can use it to find GIFs, images, emoji, contacts, and lots more — all of which can then be sent without leaving the keyboard.
Word Flow’s new functionality is almost identical to Gboard’s; while composing a message or typing up an email, you can use the built-in search function to find useful information, including addresses, news articles, facts, and weather forecasts.
You can also use it to quickly hunt down GIFS, images, videos, and emoji. When you’ve found something you want to send, simply select it to copy it, then paste it into your message. And that’s not all!
Word Flow also supports 3D Touch now, so you can press and slide to activate a trackpad that moves the cursor. It also boasts new themes, supports the iOS Text Replacement function, and is more accurate.
If you haven’t already tried Word Flow, it’s definitely worth a look. It’s one-handed typing mode can be incredibly useful on larger iPhones, and now with built-in search, it’s even more powerful. Download it now for free by following the link below.
