they removed it by purpose to get rid of an extra button, swipe left insteadthey could even remove the space buttons. as you can swipe right to add a space
A function to delete the Text in front of the Cursor like Delete in Windows would be nice. As far as I know its only possible to delete text left of the cursor.

I have been using your application for a week because I am constantly trying to get better
I am about to delete this because you all are SO ARROGANT to think your design is so perfect that people will not even need a BACKSPACE KEUc
Can I have the time you stole from me back'? Add a freaking backspace key|\""!

Hello awesome creators of typewise. I am a big fan of hexagonal design and I was THRILLED when I found out that you had reinvented the keyboard using such a layout for smartphones. I have been using this keyboard for the past week and it's definitely much easier to find the keys. I'm a tech founder myself and a part of a lot of hacker / founder communities. I am on the verge of recommending this product to all of my friends... except for one thing - the lack of a backspace yet... (to be cont'd)
Why is it bad that you don't have a backspace key? There are two major reasons:(1) The "back swipe" gesture is often captured as a keypress instead of a backswipe (at least for me). I'm definitely back swiping but I guess not enough for it to register as not just a key press. This creates an infuriating loop where you try to delete, accidentally type another letter, now you have two things to delete, etc. etc.
(2) The Back swipe motion is not ergonomic. Compared to just tapping something, it is much more strenuous and prone to creating RSI. Particularly trying to do multiple back swipes in a row is very uncomfortable. I know there is the hold and swipe method for deletion - I think this is good when you really need to delete whole sentences, etc, but it is a pain to delete anything between 2-10 characters.
Why a backspace Button? So we have more buttons like on a regular keyboard (probabely go back to regular keyboard would be the solution?)? I'm happy that there is no backspace button.

This would honestly be so nice as not every user has this keyboard so they can type as fast as possible. I think alt layoutsmare cool and i like learning new things so that's why i installed it. But a lack of any ability to easily backspace... i dint care about speed and tbh i'm glad i don't use a ton of puncutuation cause swiping is hard for me. It doesn't always hit my swipes so sometimes i end up adding in letters in this swiping game. Spoiler alert: i often lose. Just let us backspace button
Love the concept. I just cant reliably delete a single character. Just needs a simple backspace key.
