Re: Build 88

This build is very buggy because of the in app purchase. I an torn between a subscription model and a traditional single in app purchase. I understand the subscription idea. It can't be cheap to continue development without income flowing in..
I actually reverted back to build 86 as the subscription dialog would never go away. It made be sign in way to often to work.

I can't say much more as I gave up on the current build as it was basicly unusable.

absolutely do not like monthly subscriptions, or, any continuously
billing subscriptions for that matter and do not even have a single
one till this day for any service or app.
I would just rather pay for it outright.
I am very hopeful that this will be offered as an option. Any apps
that I have on my phone, have been able to give me that option, and I
sure hope that you guys can do the same.

Will review all your feedback tomorrow.

Hi Kosta and Ashley,

I am writing to you using build 88 so it does work anyway☺️

However the process of doing the upgrade was less than smooth.

I pressed the upgrade button.
It brought up a dialogue box for me to enter my apple ID and password.
Any reason why I can't use Face ID for this?
It seemed to fail the first time and brought the box up again. Maybe I
had typed my password incorrectly, but I didn't think so.
It then did give me dialogue boxes thanking me and confirming I had
successfully upgraded. But there were two or three of these, where I

It then brought up the apple ID and password dialog box again for some
reason. I just pressed cancel this time though, and the keyboard is
After completing this process, there is no indication in the app that I
am now subscribed, and the upgrade button is still there. I might expect
indication that I am already subscribed if possible, though it is at

The first time I went back into the FlickType app after typing most of
this email, it gave me the thank you dialog box yet again, though this
behaviour does not appear to be repeating again every time.

Hi Koster and Ashley,
First off I would prefer to see a subscription in a yearly format.
Secondly I have tried to use FlickType to reply to this message but all
I’m getting is not subscribed when I launch the full screen keyboard and
can’t type anything.

Kind regards,

There's a lot of changes under the hood in this release, so please report
any unexpected behavior at all. We are also introducing the paid
subscription feature, which has turned out to be quite complex to
implement. Thankfully you can help us test out the purchasing flow,
including deleting the app and then restoring your purchases upon
re-installing, all free of charge. TestFlight will never charge real
it will only simulate purchasing. We'd also love to hear your thoughts on
the instructions and overall experience that a new user would have.

What's new:
- Updated content in "Welcome" tab.
- Added new "Upgrade" tab.
- The custom keyboard will now work without "Full Access", but it won't
able to play sound effects and will only have minimal touch typing
functionality without flick gestures or tap typing, since it can't
the subscription without a network connection.
- Increased maximum emoji shortcuts from 6 to 10.
