Word Flow keyboard feature On Windows Phone Keyboard

Updated on September 9, 2014

Word Flow On WP8.1



So I haven't posted anything for a while as I've run out of phones , accessories and stuff to write about, I have however , recently updated my Lumia's running Windows Phone 8 to the Nokia Cyan Software, which amongst other things, gives me the Word Flow feature on the in built Windows Phone keyboard (really wish it was available on tablet or PC as for a fat fingered dolt such as myself it is far easier to use then tapping real or virtual keys).

I have used swiping predictive keyboards before on both Symbian and Android phones and find them easier in most circumstances and the version on Windows Phone is no exception, in fast it is probably one of the best I've used, and don't just take my word for it, many independent tech reviewers have said the same, the algorithms built into the system work great out of the box and the more you use the keyboard the more it 'Learns' both your typing style and vocabulary, so both common and unusual or personal words flow effortlessly.

Demo of Word Flow

Hope the video gives an idea of how the feature works, my main excuses for lack of quality are that it is very difficult to use any feature on a phone leaning over a tripod also a complete lack of ability or skill really doesn't help :-D

Try it & See

If you have never tried it , or were unaware it was available on your Windows Phone I strongly recommend you try it and within a couple of days I doubt you will be pecking at the keys for anything except passwords and log-in details on websites :-)

Anyway hope someone somewhere finds this slightly helpful and thanks for taking the time to read and watch.
