Lightly tap the screen once for each letter, roughly where you think the right keys would be on a regular keyboard. You will only get feedback at the end of the word, by flicking right to insert a space.
Not the right word? Flick down to change it, or flick left to delete it and try again.
You should not need to tap and hold your finger down on the screen, unless you are typing a word that might not exist in the built-in dictionary.
At the end of your sentence, flick right once more to add a period. To change it into a comma, question mark, or other common punctuation, simply flick down. That’s it!
