Latest Fleksy Beta Releases Bring Big Redesign With Material Themes, GIF Keyboard Extension, And Much More [Hands-On]

Android Lollipop has started rolling out to people in the months since version 3.3 of Fleksy hit the Play Store, and the third-party keyboard's developers aren't just settling for giving the next release a material theme. The beta contains a new interface, plenty of new themes, and keyboard extensions. This last category is the one we're most excited to see.

What's New?

The Material keyboard themes look less like Google's and more like simple recolored versions of Fleksy, and while they're not particularly exciting, at least they're not indicative of the effort the developers have taken to make the app look at home on Android 5.0.

Pushbullet Browser Extensions Get Updated Look That Matches The Android App And Website

Not too long ago, Pushbullet got all prettied up for Android 5.0. The app is a great example of a third-party developer coating their software with Material Design dust and spreading it out to users via an update (I'm pretty sure that's how all this stuff works).

"I Am Here"

Google Maps is pretty good at figuring out where we've gone; between GPS, Wi-Fi, and even things like BLE-based iBeacons, it's possible to pinpoint our locations just about everywhere, even inside of buildings.

Experimental Opera Mobile Build Brings Desktop Extensions To Android

One of the most powerful tools in all of the modern desktop browsers is the ability to add extensions. Extensions allow the browser to do things that it can't do on its own - everything from simple tasks to advanced options. When it comes to desktop extensions, the limits are generally left up to the mind of the creator.

Up to this point, extensions haven't been all that widely adopted in the mobile world.

Download APKs Directly From The Web Market To Your Computer With The 'APK Downloader' Extension For Google Chrome

One of the biggest restrictions that we face as Android users is "device incompatibility" issues in the Market, even though the app in question may work perfectly on our device. For example, according to the Android Market, Plants Vs. Zombies is "incompatible" with my Galaxy Tab 10.1; however, when it was initially released to the Amazon Appstore (and before Popcap was bought by EA), I always played it on the Tab.
