FlickType is a powerful keyboard for your Apple Watch. It's also a fully accessible iPhone keyboard for users who are visually impaired.

FlickType's universal design makes typing easy, fast, and comfortable — even on your Apple Watch!

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.

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.

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!

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.

I like!

Really cool, for the most part it gets what I’m trying to type. But sometimes it’s frustrating when I want to type something specific. For example, I want to type “mmh” and I’m certain I hit all 3 letters, but it corrects to something entirely different. Maybe at the bottom of the suggestion list should be the letters I specifically typed?

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback, we really appreciate it!

This will be addressed in an upcoming update, stay tuned 🤗

PS: for now, you can use the ⊕ button to enter anything you need using a system input method, and then continue on the keyboard.

Doesn’t work

I tried installing it but it doesn’t show up on my watch

Keyboard works well, but the app is not integrated with the watch at all.

It takes more time getting to the keyboard than actually using the watches built in texting method.

Only works for texts, not messenger or anything else.
