Microsoft's iPhone keyboard reportedly includes a one-handed interface
Microsoft's recently announced beta test of its Word Flow keyboard for the iPhone reportedly includes a new one-handed interface. That kind of UI is not included in the Windows Phone or Windows 10 Mobile version of the keyboard.
According to Thurrott.com, the UI is designed to look like a fan, with all of the keys placed on the grid. The layout is made so that users can type on the keyboard just by using their thumb, according to the report. While the Windows 10 Mobile version of Word Flow has its own one-handed mode, it's in the same kind of layout as the regular version, but just made smaller and shifted to one side.
The report does point out that the iPhone beta of Word Flow could ditch the fan-based UI when it is officially released. There's no indication that this one-handed interface will be offered to Windows 10 Mobile users in the future.

But Microsoft sure is making me enjoy my iPhone more and more. While my WP gathers more dust.
Windows 10 Mobile is just being left to wither on the vine whilst Microsoft get their iOS/Android cards aligned.
Word flow also adds a space after it Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
I really miss WP8.1's keyboard - The best I've ever seen on any platform.
Microsoft is no excuse here about the fact that the implementation is half-baked.
If iOS/Android devs at Microsoft have enough time to create things that aren't on the core Windows devices....then to me, that suggests Microsoft are employing people in the wrong areas.
Do you see Apple or Google prioritising development on Windows ahead of their own platforms?! No, of course not.
Just look at how long it took for Office Mobile apps to make it to Window tablets! Apple customers had them months before us!
Why do you defend MS?! It makes no sense.
Just one question and please be honest: Have you ever used a Windows phone?
I'm really unsure now however, I used to love a lot of things about my Lumia Phones (Camera Related and Performance Related Mostly) seemingly I'm losing my grounds to stand out. But that's just me judging by my own perspective. After all everyone has their own.
You guys cry too much
I have all the functionality and quality apps I need..apps that are updated on a regular basis as well
They are just trying to put their apps and services everywhere. "Microsoft everywhere"
Not at all trying to make money anyway they can with their apps and services like a company should do...
My view...big deal...everyone...no matter what device or OS you use, should have access to Microsoft apps and services.
Im perfectly content to stay here...all the apps and services on my W10M device work quite well for me and I have all the QUALITY apps I could possibly want and need installed on my devices (PC and Mobile)
Would even iPhone users like the fact they are using a Windows Phone keyboard layout on an Apple device..
Windows should focus on getting Windows 10 Mobile up to scratch and released before focusing on third party platforms
