    Hands-on with Fleksy (predictive keyboard) for AndroidHands-on with Fleksy (predictive keyboard) for Android by Robert Nelson for Android Community2013-12-05T20:45:15Z

    Check out SlashGear’s hands-on video with Fleksy above.

    Fleksy Keyboard is a great tool for typing faster. While there is a free version of the app available on Google Play, there are a number of reasons to invest in the paid version of the app. Most notably, the free version is only free for 30 days.

    Fun fact: The official Guinness World Record for fastest typing on a smartphone was broken with Fleksy on May 2014. It’s also worth noting that upgrading from Free to Paid will automatically import your Settings, Badges and Dictionary.

    Wolfram Alpha App ReviewIn this video I will review the application Wolfram Alpha. I will describe the basic premises of the application as well as showcase some common uses of the application. Thanks for watching and I hope you enjoy. Link

    Check out a review of this app in the video above. (The review of the app is done on an iPhone, but the core app functionality remains the same across both iOS and Android platforms.)

    WolframAlpha is a really interesting search tool. While it’s never been able to dethrone Google since its launch several years ago, this app will appeal to Android fans who sometimes wish they had the ease of access to WolframAlpha that iOS users get (Siri often returns WolframAlpha results when you do a voice search.)

    The Android version of WolframAlpha is worth buying because it can do so much, and returns so much data. Whether you’re looking to do a quick conversion in the kitchen, pull up some quick figures about the solar system, or just get help with your math homework, WolframAlpha is search that’s tailored for scientists, mathematicians, and engineers.
