    On the home screen, we just need the keyboard

    Word flow tracing and shape writing means connecting letters without actually pressing each one individually
    .
    What we're going to do is we're going to glide our finger across the keypad over letters that we want to use. For example, if I want to write "hello", I'm not going to press H-E-L-L-O. I'm just going to press "h" and then I'm going to just glide my finger over.

    As you can see, it's got the answer right
    .
    It's not a surprise and it's not a trick.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    We'll go down to the actual message
    .
    I'm going to write a little sentence, starting with "h". I'm just going to glide my finger over. We see "how", so yes, that's what I want.

    Then I will press the space button
    .
    Then I want "are". So I will start with "a" and slide my finger. So now "How are..."
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    Now I have gotten to "How are you..."
    .
    So I will start the word "today".

  11. 11
    So it's given me the right answer every time, and also it's given me a list of words that have similar letters that are in a similar order as well
    .
    This is because it knows which direction I have lingered my finger.

    This is a gliding process that allows you to write quite simply
    .
    There will always be mistakes. You may want to check in the end, but it can be a way to just type very quickly.
