I don’t really understand the squiggles. I used them to right this but it didn’t work for the word squiggles

You have to do a little loop to get the double g in squiggle.

Sounds complicated

Just imagine having to do that staccato nonsense rather than the elegant legato of swipe type.

Thumb isnt long enough to squiggle one handed. Would never be able to write the word pasta.

I still tap because I forget to squiggle 90% of the time, tapping is too ingrained for me now.

Pleased to announce that I’m a squiggler

You can trace a line between letters rather than tapping on each one like a 73 year old Conservative voter.

You trace a line over the characters that make up the word that you want to use instead of tapping each one. There’s a learning curve, but after a day or two it’s much faster for most languages with a Latin keyboard.

Also known as Swyping, after the original keyboard that did this.
