That may be why they separated the watch
companion app. It looks like there's still some work that needs
to be done on it at first blush, but I have faith in Kosta and
Ashley, and anyway it's only $3. Perhaps they will have some
other streams of income like other apps with a subscription
model to try and help offset the loss of income from Apple's
ridiculous objections to the implementation of FlickType's
subscription functionality. It burns me up that they've had to
be so rigid about that at the App Store's ivory tower of policy.

If they do away with the subscription then
they make no more money as opposed to making very little and I
don’t think it takes a lot of guess work to figure out what
that will mean.
Maybe if they won the Lottery they can then
keep it up as a hobby, but with what are probably a few
hundred users and $1 a month or $10 a year you can do the
math, even with a thousand users that works out to $10 or
$12,000, hardly a skilled worker’s wage.
Do you know if or when they'll do away
with the subscriptions, like Apple wants them to?
Do you also know why they made the watch
app a separate purchase?

What series is your watch
I don't have the app yet, but
I'd be using it on a series 4.
I’ve installed it on my
Apple Watch but when I open the app on my
watch and double tap to create a new note,
the keyboard does come up but voiceover says
nothing when I tap the keyboard, nothing
works. I’ve restarted the watch but still no
joy. Have I missed something?
Hi Jessica and all,
The Watch Companion has been separated
into a paid download for $2.99 called
FlickType Notes for Watch. I didn't
hesitate to buy it, though I haven't had a
chance to try it yet. Here's the link on
the App Store:

I just saw an update in the app store for flicktype, which is good.
What's not good, and quite frankly, makes me mad is the unannounced removal of the watch app.
I really loved this part of flicktype.
It was nice to be able to type right on my Apple watch series 4.
Is this part of the app gone for good, or will it return?
