The company trying to put a keyboard everywhere you look is t it again. Minuum, who have dedicated themselves to being on every platform possible, have vowed to bring their minimalist design to the classic, minimalist Moto 360 smartwatch. It won’t be the keyboard you’re used to, though.
Since the smartwatch came to pass, the question has remained: how can we type on that thing? A small screen doesn’t lend itself to quick thumbs, and with such small keys, how would we get by? Fleksy has an answer, and from the looks of it — a pretty good one.

On news that Apple would allow us to use third-party keyboards in iOS 8, the most notable keyboard of all started work on their app. SwiftKey, who made a name for themselves as a great alternative keyboard for Android, have begun work on an iOS app.
iOS 8 is answering two of users and developers' biggest issues, adding third-party keyboard support, as well as allowing developers to use Touch ID in their apps. Users wanting to switch from Apple's default keyboard on iPhone and iPad will be able to install other input options, though they'll be sandboxed by default.
Apple's new keyboard for iPhone and iPad has been previewed, with the iOS 8 'board making intelligent suggestions for autocomplete.

There's also a new docking station for the Windows tablet.
