Microsoft to Bring Its Word Flow Keyboard to iOS

Microsoft is planning to bring the Word Flow keyboard from Windows Phone to iOS, reveals an email sent to some Windows Insiders and obtained by The Verge..

From the report:
In an email to some Windows Insider testers, obtained by The Verge, Microsoft is looking for iPhone users to trial the Word Flow keyboard. It's not clear when Word Flow will be released publicly on iOS, but Microsoft is already ready to test it more broadly so it will likely arrive in the coming months. Microsoft's Windows Phone version of Word Flow includes autocorrect, suggestions, gestures, and the ability to swipe letters (like Swype) to type out words.
Alongside Cortana, Windows Phone's Word Flow keyboard is one of the more unique parts of Microsoft's mobile operating system, and it will disappoint fans to see the software maker once again moving features over to rival platforms. It shouldn't surprise many, though. Microsoft has made it clear that the company is focused on experiences across multiple platforms, rather than keeping features like Word Flow and Cortana locked to its struggling mobile software.
