Ok. About this. Lots of people are way too sloppy. Even online videos I'm like "how are you catching?"
Mistake. Lots of people spend too much time spinning the ball. It increases the chance of misshots and, more often, the phone/server lag screwing you over.
Instead, try this. With you index finger tip (lighter contacts is better on farther shots) trace a fish hook pattern. Come down, u turn, and fire off from center-screen, diagonal at appropriate speed. No spinning! Just the fish hook.
Getting good? Try some pro-level stuff like I do. One handed play. Rest phone holding hand so pinky is across the bottom and index along the side. With same hand thumb, fish hook that shit just like above. Can't get the super far stuff, but most all.
