No, I dismiss the keyboard ninety percent of the time. I am rarely using the iOS keyboard.

Maybe swapping the two gestures would work better Kosta? Meaning, the one finger flick down and hold can switch to the next keyboard. And the one finger flick up and hold would dismiss the keyboard. In my personal usage, I have a need to switch to the iOS keyboard more often than I need to dismiss the keyboard. Maybe others have a similar usage pattern?

Hi Kim,

You can dismiss the keyboard with a flick down and hold, whereas a flick up and hold will switch to the next keyboard, eg the iOS keyboard.

Thanks for reminding me of the difficulty with the flick up gesture. What if you start the flick up from a little higher on the screen, avoiding the very bottom edge? Does that work for you?

hello all,
Okay so the flicking up to dismiss is no good!!!
It keeps entering my control panel thing, where it has airplane mode
and all that.
We had a problem with that sort of gesture when we originally tested
the app. that persists here as well.
I would suggest changing that particular gesture. I haven't tested
this one thoroughly yet, to offer any other feedback.
I'm sure you all shall hear from me soon.
thank you, and have a lovely day.

Hello, so far, so good.
I like the new line gesture and the emoji😎
I notice that if I leave notes after typing with FlickType, and then
return, I am still getting text repeated.

Is it my imagination or is this keyboard faster than before?

- Merged touch typing and flick typing styles. There is no longer a
spacebar, delete, style toggle or shift key when exploring the
keyboard. If you are in numbers or symbols, entering a space will
always return you to letters.
- Magic tap to toggle the primary layout, between letters and numbers.
- Single tap with two fingers to toggle the secondary layout. In
letters, this switches between lowercase and uppercase. In numbers, it
switches between numbers and symbols.
- Added emoji shortcuts 😎. Flick right to enter a period, then flick
up. These will be configurable in the future.
- Flick down and hold to dismiss, or up and hold for next keyboard.
- Flick right and hold for new line / return.
- Three finger tap and hold to read back.
