FlickType is the practical QWERTY keyboard for Apple Watch, as well as a fully accessible iPhone keyboard for visually impaired users.

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.

Absolutely fantastic

I contacted the developer after the last update as it removed the watch functionality. He promptly replied and advised it would return with improvements. True to his word and less than 48 hours later it returned better than ever. The developer also allowed me to try FlickType notes which is a very neat little app which also contains a nice watch keyboard - definitely worth checking out if you need to record quick and easy notes. For me though this is amazing and absolutely brilliant customer service from the developer. Thank you 👌🏻

Simply amazing and something Apple should have included stock years ago with the Apple Watch. Very well developed by the developer, using workarounds for it to function on your Apple Watch, Developer I have read is also very responsive to his customers, in giving feedback, support and other options. I personally haven’t had any issues, I’d highly recommend for any avid Apple Watch user, but also understand it isn’t for everyone, it’s worth giving it a try!

Fastest way to type on iWatch

I haven't been using the app for very long but it seems already to be the fastest way to type. Dictation hardly ever works first time for me so I spend more time editing than I do writing. Drawing letters is pretty accurate but slooow.

With FlickType, it doesn't always guess the word you typed correctly but it makes it super easy to correct. Punctuation and smilies are easy to input too.
