FlickType's universal design makes typing easier, faster and more comfortable than ever, regardless of visual ability or screen size — even on a smartwatch!

“FlickType is going to change lives.” — Tony Hernandez
“The difference it makes to my everyday life can’t be underestimated.” — Alan MacDonald

FlickType is designed to be as accessible as possible, featuring large keys, highly readable visual announcements, high-contrast color themes, and much more.

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.

Say goodbye to painfully slow editing operations. Delete and change entire words with a single flick of your finger. Control the cursor directly from the keyboard. When typing, don't slow down and try to be accurate. Simply tap-type where it feels right and FlickType's unique algorithm will find the correct word from the pattern of your taps.

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.


Note: The Apple Watch companion app is completely free. Using FlickType as a system-wide keyboard on iOS requires a subscription.


FlickType offers two auto-renewing subscription options:
$0.99 per month
$11.99 per year

These prices are for United States customers. Pricing in other countries may vary and actual charges may be converted to your local currency depending on the country of residence.

Your FlickType subscription will automatically renew unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. You can go to your iTunes Account settings to manage your subscription and turn off auto-renew. Your iTunes Account will be charged when the purchase is confirmed.

Any unused portion of the free trial period will be forfeited when you purchase a subscription.

Not too bad!

Don't get me wrong. I think this is a really good app, a reincarnation of Fleksy used to be & wanted to be.
But... Why is the only accessible type app for blind & low vision people the only app that charges money? I just find it so difficult to accept that the one app that makes blind people compete with the sighted world also happens to require subscription. This makes it hard for me to recommend to any blind &/or vision impaired users.
Having said that, the app is actually designed really well. It's fast, accurate, & took just seconds to setup & start typing. Congrats on an excellent app.
Now please go get public funding or sell it to Google so everyone can use it equally.

Definitely improvement, and there can be more.

I for the longest time have been against the usage of my phone, one of the reasons being that typing has always been a rather difficult journey for me. I mainly use dictation, but that can’t be discreet in public places, and it doesn’t always hear me right. I never had a chance to try out fleksy, But even so this is a major improvement. The only problem is that I run into, is sometimes when trying to release a manually typed letter on the custom keyboard, and ends up typing a different letter. And also a batch add to dictionary would be useful, as well as the dictionary respecting common root word rules, such as a pending “slj “to the end of a word. Great job so far, especially in the time that this thing has been in development. Keep up the great work, and let’s make this app better for everyone.

Developer Response ,

Hello there, and thank you so much for the feedback, we really appreciate it! The issue with getting a different letter when typing manually should now be resolved, and the "Dictionary" screen should make it a little easier to add multiple words, although still not ideal for batch additions. We'll improve that as well as the words in the built-in dictionary itself. We'd love to hear if the typing issue is fixed for you!
Warmly, FlickType

Good, would like to see some options

First, my review will be strictly based on the watch app as I haven’t used it for the iPhone or iPad. That being said, I love the ability to type. That makes messaging so much better on the watch. It’s rather amazing how well it guessing what I want to say. It’s almost to the point of creepy how well it works. 😂

There are however instances where it doesn’t get it right, and this is where having a custom dictionary or the ability to freeform type word would be useful. If it’s there and I’m missing it my apologies but I haven’t been able to fine either. Also, where are my numbers? How do I enter in any kind of number? Last but not least, I’d love to see this app expanded beyond just messenger. I’d love to be able to use it for emails or notes or whatever app I want.

Other than that, awesome app.
