FlickType is the practical QWERTY keyboard for Apple Watch, as well as a fully accessible iPhone keyboard for visually impaired users. TYPE EFFORTLESSLY, ANYWHERE. FlickType's universal design makes typing easy, fast, and comfortable — even on your Apple Watch! SURPRISINGLY SMART. When typing, don't slow down and try to be accurate. Simply tap where it feels right and FlickType's unique algorithm will find the correct word from the pattern of your taps. Say goodbye to painfully slow editing operations — delete and change entire words with a single flick of your finger on iPhone. On the Apple Watch keyboard, use the Digital Crown to change words or even move the cursor. LIMITED VISION. The FlickType keyboard is designed to be as accessible as possible on both iPhone and Apple Watch, featuring large keys, highly readable visual announcements, high-contrast color themes, and much more. FAST, EASY & FUN. FlickType users type a whole three to four times faster compared to the standard keyboard, VoiceOver typing, or even dictation after edits. And utilizing the standard QWERTY layout means you don’t have to learn a new way to type. Emoji, text shortcuts, and deep customization options make typing fluid and fun, just as it should be — even on your Apple Watch! TYPE WITH YOUR EARS. FlickType can speak back to you when you type or edit, enabling a completely eyes-free writing experience. People who are blind write millions of words every month using it, typing just as fast as everyone else. Voice feedback on the Apple Watch keyboard is currently limited to VoiceOver users only.

  • The best way to type on Apple Watch!

    By Caerule
    I almost wish Apple would buy this app and implement it as stock lol
  • Help

    By KatieBugSusanna
    So I payed for this app and it’s only 1.99 and I had 10 and now I only have .21 and I didn’t spend it on anything else
  • Really useful app!

    By Z3000
    At first I couldn’t see typing on my watch... but this app is really useful. You can now type at a reasonable speed. Don’t forget to use the Digital Crown for extra words, punctuation and emoji. If it doesn’t recognize your word a quick trip to scribble can fix that right up. Well worth the money!
  • Works really well on the watch

    This keyboard works great on the watch. Apple needs to integrate this within the OS.
  • Best way to send messages on Apple Watch

    By Longgorns
    This app changed the way I felt about sending messages on my watch. Once I started using this, I used my phone less and less for sending texts. I highly recommend this for anyone and everyone who needs a new way to send messages via watch.
  • Works really well

    Only have one suggestion, if you could add a way to group separate messages together before being sent out to the recipient if that’s possible, that would be awesome!
  • Responsive keyboard / typing on a small screen

    By Apocanie
    Really impressed by the accuracy when using this on the watch. Was able to tap out a small message without issue. Having big fingers I was worried this would be more cumbersome than the swipe version but it isn’t.
  • App opens very slowly

    By Sarah Co.
    When I open the app on my watch it takes a while to open. It says to hit the “+” sign for numbers and to scroll the Digital Crown for punctuation but neither option pops up when you press these buttons. Instead you have to do write text with your finger which leaves awkward spacing that you have to go back and delete. It takes longer to do all of this than using the original texting option on the watch. I purchased hoping this would make texting on my watch quicker and easier but it just lead to more aggravation.
  • Great App, made typing much easier

    By Emmy lo
    I really like the app it makes it so much easier to text on my watch. I like that you can easily get to the emojis you use most. There had obviously been lots of time and effort put in to make FlickType great.
  • Awesome keyboard!

    By jrucci13
    I never write reviews for anything, but I saw a post about this keyboard on Reddit and it was getting a lot of positive feedback. I figured what the hell I would check it out. So far I’m really enjoying it! It’s a little weird having to close the text message app and open the FlickType complication to type but I’m assuming that’s because Apple doesn’t allow perfect integration. It’s not weird enough to knock the rating down though. I’m still learning all the gestures but the predictive text so far has been pretty solid and after a bit more time with it I’m sure I’ll have it down. It’s definitely increased my typing speed on my wrist at least 20 times over. Definitely get this app if you find yourself typing on your wrist even a couple times a day!
