Microsoft is planning to bring Windows Phone’s WordFlow keyboard to the iPhone. Yep, it’s finally happening.

The company today sent an email to some Windows Insiders who own an iPhone, asking them if they would like to test the company’s WordFlow keyboard app on iOS. The WordFlow keyboard for iOS will be available to the iPhone 5s and newer devices, according to the email. Here’s the full email:

Hello,

Do you own an iPhone (5S or newer)? Do you think your native iOS keyboard could use improvement?

Word Flow keyboard has long been one of the highly praised features on Windows Phone and was used to break the Guinness World Record for fastest texting. We are now working on extending this keyboard to other platforms, starting with iOS.

Before publicly releasing this keyboard to the App Store, we’d love to give Insiders like you a preview. With your feedback, we’ll build a roadmap of improvements to the keyboard over time.

If you’re interested in participating in this beta program, just send an email to [email protected] with subject line “I want in!” and we’ll be in touch!

As the email states, if you own an iPhone and are interested in participating in the beta program for the WordFlow keyboard for iOS, you will need to send an email to [email protected] with the subject line “I want in!” to be able to get in.

It will be interesting to see how Microsoft’s WordFlow keyboard works on iOS. The company’s keyboard on Windows Phone is really good and definitely beats the native iOS keyboard.  If you are a fan of the WordFlow keyboard on Windows Phone, are you glad that Microsoft is finally bringing the keyboard to iOS?
