Would you like a better touch screen keyboard? If so, get FlickKey. FlickKey is a notepad application featuring a new and superior keyboard. FlickKey is extremely fast and efficient. The keyboard consists of just six flick-able keys. Each large key lets you access 9 characters. To use: press a key and “flick” in the direction of an outer character to choose that character. You can press ANYWHERE on the large key and flick ANY direction toward the letter you want. If you want the center character, simply press and release the center key, just like a standard key.
The FlickKey keys are so large that they are not hard to hit, they are hard to miss! An experienced user should expect to be able to touch type with FlickKey. That’s nearly impossible with a standard mobile keyboard. With FlickKey you can keep your eyes on your message.
(Note: FlickKey does NOT work like Swype!)
FlickKey is a notepad app that let’s you compose messages and then let’s you paste them into other applications. FlickKey can be used with any program that supports the standard paste function. You may also compose an email, SMS text, or search the Web directly from FlickKey.
FlickKey includes popup flick-able keys containing whole words, plus a finishing space, that can be entered by choosing the word with two little flicks of the screen. Common words can be entered with ease and unmatched speed.
◆ Only six super large ‘hard to miss’ flick-able keys on the screen at a time.
◆ Popup flick-able keys so you can type common words uncommonly fast.
◆ More common punctuation characters on the main keyboard screen :-)
◆ Only two screens for all the alphanumeric and numeric characters.
◆ Email, SMS text, and search the Web directly from FlickKey.
◆ Standard copy and paste functions.
◆ Choose your font and font size. Forgot your glasses, set a large font size!
◆ FlickKey is fast! Speed up your texting or twittering. Or, enjoy writing longer messages again with email or social networking.

What's New in Version 1.9
Support for iOS 7 and wide screens
Fixed Magnifying Glass problem in iOS 7
Since I switched to iPhone 5, I've begun to hate texting because the keyboard is narrower, and I constantly hit the wrong keys. I decided to give this a try. I will say that since it's very different, there's some commitment involved, because it may be harder instead of easier at first whole you're learning, but once you get used to it, it's way easier than the old way, so for me it was worth it.
What I like is that the keys are big so you can't really miss. The main thing I was apprehensive about when I first saw it was wondering if you might have to be really exact in the angle you swipe in, in order for it to know what direction you meant to swipe in and to pick the correct letter that you intended - like that it would be too easy to swipe slightly the wrong angle, and then it wouldn't know what letter you were intending to hit. Surprisingly, I found that it is very good at detecting which letter you mean, and you don't have to be super exact in the angle for it to know which way you want to go.
Overall, I really think that this is something that could take off, because it really makes typing much easier. It may have saved my phone from being thrown out the window.
Excellent concept. Need native iOS8 keyboard
I absolutely love the concept of this app. I tried it earlier and stopped using it only because it didn't seem worth learning a totally new keyboard for one note application. But now with system-wide 3rd-party keyboards in iOS 8, I truly hope the developer updates it to be a system keyboard.
This could easily be my favorite input system since Graffiti on the old Palm handhelds.
I am intrigued
I hate the tiny iPhone virtual keyboard and loved my Swipe on my old Windows phone. Swipe being pretty much unavailable, I thought I would try this. I would be more than willing to deal with the learning curve of this if it had a clipboard feature or was available as an alternate keyboard.
