    The Edinburgh Festival is now over again until August 2015, but our app is still useful for general visitors to our home city.

    Visiting Edinburgh? Type texts, blogs, tweets, emails and FB updates (or anything else) much faster, with our advanced word prediction. Flexpansion (Edinburgh Festivals edition) comes preloaded with the names of streets, venues, performers and shows in our fantastic home city! (Approved but unofficial).

    The app provides fully-adaptive word completion, next word prediction, autocorrect & an editable user dictionary. Also
    * … has an advanced predictive text engine which learns your personal style & continuously improves suggestions.
    * … is compatible with phones, tablets, and hardware keyboards.
    * … is easily personalised by adding your own abbreviations, words & even whole phrases (a limited number in the free version, unlimited in Flexpansion Pro). For instance set 'qq' (or anything you like) to insert your signature, phone number, or any other frequently-typed block of text.
    * … is derived from the founder's PhD research at Edinburgh University.
    * … as well as helping you type faster, may even improve your spelling!

    Flexpansion also has a unique flexible abbreviation expansion mode (NB: SWITCH ON IN Settings>Prediction) which understands all common styles. Type like a txt msg, and it automatically expands into full, correctly-spelled text e.g.:
    * wd would
    * xprc experience
    * tfon telephone
    * 2mrw tomorrow
    * 428 fortunate
    * abv8n abbreviation

    No need to memorise anything or pre-define abbreviations. Our Flexible Text Expansion engine deals with whatever you type and learns rapidly from your usage.

    * Long-press Enter for smileys
    * Long-press Space to enter input unaltered and learn it
