Flick Bowling: how to "flick" the ball?

I am late, sorry but it sound pretty dumb: how exactly I flick the ball and control the direction. I see not guide on the iTunes Store page nor within the game. Any help will be appreciated.

Your first touch, set the direction by holding down and move left to right. Then "flick" by doing exactly that...just grazing the surface like you were flicking some dust off the screen. When the ball is in motion, you can also control the way the ball moves by swiping left / right.

Let me know if that helps!

You nailed it - that is exaclty how you control the ball. The first flick you set your players position on the lane. I wish you could change your mind and move him/her if you want to, but you can't. If you don't flick perfectly straight up and down the ball will go on an angle as well. I wish they'd use 300 Bowl's shooting mechanics with flick bowling's graphics.
