Re: Build 68

Wow, another very quick release. Thanks as always. It certainly does address some of the issues from build 67, though clearly still a work in progress.
Glad to see some gestures added to the manual mode, I hope this means that the spacebar, shift and return keys etc will be removed altogether? I actually find that manual typing on the custom keyboard is more accurate than in the main app. In the main app, I will often navigate to the "a" key for example, then lift my finger, only to find it has typed an "s" instead. This does not happen in either the iOS keyboard or the FlickType custom keyboard.
I do still hope for an integrated version in the future though, eliminating the need to switch modes. I don't like the magic tap gesture to dismiss the keyboard, but thankfully the iPhone X still has the keyboard switching button in the bottom left below the actual keyboard.
Looking forward to having a new line gesture.

Ok, this is working better. It took me a while to find the button to go back to FlickType, which is in the same place as the globe button, just left of the space bar.

Note that upon entering Touch Typing, you will need to release your touch and tap again to start exploring. This is annoying but will be addressed soon.
