There are a lot of great third-party smartphone keyboards to choose from and Fleksy is definitively one of the best. Fleksy on Wednesday announced that it’s permanently become a free app while adding in optional in-app purchases for any users who want to customize their keyboards.

“By making the move to free we’ll be able to serve a much larger and more diverse set of users,” Fleksy writes on its official blog. “With this increased user base, we’ll be focused on delivering new and exciting product improvements across all languages.”

Fleksy is giving longtime users who paid for the app $8 worth of themes and extension slots to thank them for their patronage.

Fleksy has made its name as an incredibly fast third-party keyboard. Last year, for example, Fleksy broke the world record for smartphone keyboard typing by hammering out a 126-letter sentence in just 18.44 seconds.

You can download for free right now at the iTunes App Store, at Google Play or at the Amazon App Store.
