Flexpansion’s advanced word prediction dramatically increases your typing speed in ALL apps. Type using abbreviations, like a txt msg, and Flexpansion automatically expands into full, correctly-spelled text.
Flexpansion provides everything you’d expect from a predictive text system, including fully-adaptive word completion, next word prediction, editable user dictionary and autocorrect. But also, our unique “Abbreviation expansion” mode understands all common abbreviation styles. For example:
* wd → would
* xprc → experience
* tfon → telephone
* 2mrw → tomorrow
No need to memorize anything. No need to pre-define abbreviations. Our Flexible Text Expansion engine deals with whatever you type and learns rapidly from your usage.
NEW – choose empty base language, then learn from text, to type in ONLY your own words. Add Shakespeare, technical writing, or another language.
