If you want to live-tweet about LaLiga or the IPL from an iPhone while keeping your snacking hand free, you have a new option.

Microsoft's Word Flow keyboard has arrived to rival Apple's iOS, after the software giant teased it earlier in the year.

The Windows Phone version is generally well-liked, but iPhone and iPad users will actually get more options.

The one-handed "arc mode" is curved to be more suitable for thumb use, for instance, and you can select a custom photo to use as a background.

Other features include word predictions and suggestions that improve over time, contact integration and the option to tap or swipe.

Microsoft, which now owns SwiftKey too, has been testing the updated app for a while with Windows Insiders, and reportedly plans to release it on Android. It's now available to all for free on iOS at the App Store.
