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

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

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


Minor bug introduced!

Within hours of writing review, an update was released. The keyboard switching is no longer an issue.I really do love having this keyboard. It makes daily typing so much easier. I'm finding an odd quirk with latest update. I have three keyboards that I switch between... This one, Apple standard, and the emoji keyboard. Sometimes it switches between this keyboard and emoji only. Constantly bypassing the Apple standard keyboard. Having to switch like three times before I can get right keyboard. I've tried a reboot and turning VO off \ on. Neither was effective in fixing this minor annoyance. It just slows me down for a moment or two.
I'm using an iPhone 8 which is running the most current software. Hopefully this will be corrected in an upcoming update. Otherwise it's a fantastic app.
