WhatsApp announced that their active users’ number rocketed from 700 million to 1 billion within one year. The messaging service also introduced end-to-end encryption which would secure the data exchanged between the users. No third party application, even WhatsApp can’t access or track the data such as messages, calls, videos and images.

Brian Acton, the founder of WhatsApp, opined that “building secure products makes for a safer world.”The inclusion of this security feature is also tempting others and it can be a huge selling point for the service.

Do you have an iPhone rather than Windows? If yes, here an Intro of Microsoft’s Word Flow Keyboard with “ARC” mode, a new feature Swype pioneered.

To use this one handed word flow keyboard, you need an iPhone, not a Window’s phone. The best part is that the keyboard makes users switch to one handed operation from the people type with two hands.

On Monday, 25/ 04/ 2016: Microsoft made its first debut in Apple Inc iOS App Store about Free Word Flow Keyboard app. Windows 8/ Windows 10 Phone users might be well known with the Word Flow. But for just iPhone, features set apart with customization.

The best part in Word Flow Keyboard is “predictive texting” which anticipates your next word for faster swiping. Undoubtedly, this best feature benefits for the users of iPhone 6 and six plus.

Soon after you have installed your Swiftkey keyboard app, just tap on the globe icon and get your word flow keyboard with one handed operation. You can also experience for curved keyboard or “arc” shaped keyboard where all the characters come aside either left sided or right sided i.e. a bend curve feels likely to use efficiently.

Not even WINDOWS users can’t do customization to their keyboard by applying background themes but Apple iPhone users can. Well, I’m not sure why anybody would care too. We should look further even if when the Microsoft SWYPE mode keyboard introduces to the Android and Windows users.

Both iPhone and Windows Phone users have predictive texting and gestures tying with which you can slide your finger across the character keys to spell out the words. Apple iPhone users have some other one handed operation keyboards like Blink and Minuum, but these keys don’t go for CURVED keyboard. However, Google released SWYPE keyboard earlier for its Android users.

Microsoft released previously “Hub Keyboard” and now to “Word Flow Keyboard.” Hub Keyboard, unfortunately, fails to be the best and currently have a 2-star rating in the available App store.
