Latest News: FREE TALK: Creating an innovative, predictive Android keyboard: Flexpansion, 5th Sept, Edinburgh →
August 2013 – Edinburgh Festivals edition!Visiting the world-famous Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Military Tattoo & International Festival this August?
Our FREE Edinburgh Festivals visitors’ edition helps you type emails, blogs, tweets, and more from the heart of our fantastic home city! It comes pre-loaded with all the names of the venues, shows, performers, streets etc., so for instance you only need type “Pl” then Space to type “Pleasance” and are then offered “Courtyard”, “Dome”, “Above” etc. to tap and insert (patterns alter after it learns from your typing, but the phrases are all there).
The main app does abbreviation expansion by default but we’ve switched it off (easily turned on again) in the Festival version for those who just want word completion and autocorrect. We’ve also added a new purple keyboard theme named “Thistle”.
The app was featured in this weekend’s Scotland On Sunday and we are really excited about the potential uptake at this year’s Fringe.

Over time, Flexpansion learns your personal writing style and improves the quality of its suggestions.
A host of features save you time typing including swipe-to-undo, shift-swipe-to-move-around, and long-press for quick access to extras. Flexpansion will also
