Would Appreciate Swype Function Again

FlickType changed the swype functions. No more swipe to delete or add a space. The app still makes note taking quick. Would appreciate if a swype option could be used again. Flicktype explained swype features would be considered for use again, & I appreciated the prompt helpful response, as well as explaining the emoticon function I had a question on.

Additionally, There are 5 tips in the form of pre-made notes. They don’t seem to be able to be deleted. I would like to know if the notes included can be deleted?

Thank you for your review.
We will consider adding back the swipe gestures as an option. For the emoji, you can still do it the same way: either double space and change the period to an emoji with the Digital Crown, or you can now also use the dedicated "+" button at the bottom right, instead of the previous "Other input..." menu action which required a force touch.
Please let us know if this helps.
Thank you again.

This is a fantastic app!

This little keyboard on the watch is amazing! All you have to do is type in the general area of the letter that you want, and hit the space bar. This app will predict what you want to put in, and if it is the wrong word, which is very unlikely, you turn the digital crown to select the word you want. Once you select the word you want just continue to type. It is that easy!
I think the accuracy of the prediction engine on this app is about 99%!. With about 10 minutes practice you will be typing on your watch as you do on your iPhone!

Great job!

Updating Review

Updating my review from before. I’ve been playing with the app a bit more & getting familiar with it. Its a lot cleaner looking & it definitely does what it’s supposed to. I still think the previous version was faster with the keyboard popping up immediately instead of selecting a new note. Also the flicking motions were faster than using the space bar & watch dial. Still the best keyboard for the watch.

Thank you for updating your review!
The original app has also been updated, and now always pops up the keyboard and even has a dedicated "Send" button for the most streamlined watch messaging experience yet.
Let us know what you think of that update!
Thanks again.
