Flicktype for the Apple Watch

Third party keyboards on iPhones can help make the typing experience better and a new proof of concept keyboard called flicktype could make typing on the Apple Watch better.

Currently I use WatchChat for on my Apple Watch for whatsapp that uses a third-party keyboard and that’s better than Apple’s scribble option in certain cases. With flicktype the keyboard is far better and easy to use below is a video created by the developer of flicktype in action and I’ve personally tested the app on my Apple Watch using their TestFlight invite.

We hope that in some time the developer could add this in some form to the Apple Watch given that Apple doesn’t currently allow third party keyboards but just using their app as a test gives me some hope for what typing could be like in the future.
