Re: Build 36 is out to alpha

Hey there,

This is the smoothest running version of FlickType yet! Keep up the fantastic work.
I am in love with the new click sounds that you added a few versions back. I however an not in love with the volume of the delete sound. It would be great to have the same volume settings for the delete sound as we have for the click sounds.
Manual typing seems to be stable again, but it now is repeating characters after you lift your finger. Could we please have an option to turn off the character echo. This makes manual typing slow and confusing.
