Microsoft has released a new keyboard called Word Flow for iOS, which is designed to make it easier to text one-handed.

The QWERTY keyboard lets you swipe between letters to write words and sentences quickly. What makes it stand out is its arc mode, which makes the entire keyboard accessible when you can only get one hand free to text.

As you’d expect, the keyboard has a predictive algorithm so it’ll attempt to be one step ahead of you. One thing that you might have to get used to is the lack of a border surrounding the keyboard’s keys.

Microsoft’s Word Flow keyboard is now available from the App Store. However, for the time being, it is only available in English and in the U.S.
