Re: Build 128

 

Thank you Benny, it's a relief to know that there was no issue with the Search button. For the locking of the screen and the unresponsive keyboard when launched in Safari, has anyone else noticed that?

And what worries me most are the cases of lost text that both Chuck and Benny have reported in the last few builds. If anyone else experiences any text loss please let us know as soon as possible.

Thank you for testing!

Kosta,

 

I “see” the error of my way.  The dismiss and search buttons are so close together, I have been missing the search button.  It appears that the search button is working properly.  I apologize for the confusion.  I still don’t understand the locking of the screen and the unresponsive FlickType keyboard when it is launched in Safari.  Thanks.

 

Benny

Kosta,

Just tried out build 128. B Still having the same problems. B I first went through google search, then mail search and then youtube search. B The first tries at all 3 of these worked fine. B I went through each of these a second time, but had problems. B When I pulled up google, I tapped on search, the FlickType keyboard came up and as I would call it, the keyboard was asleep (there was no audio announcement that FlickType was active). B I tapped on the screen and it became active. B I then entered a search request. B I noticed on this second try that the search button was not labeled as such (search). B The button was labeled as dismiss this time. B The first time; when it worked properly, the button was labeled as search. B I tapped on dismiss. B The keyboard was dismissed and my search request was entered in the search field, but the search button was apparently not activated. B This was repeated on the second youtube search as well. B The button was improperly labeled as dismiss and the search request was not activated when tapping dismiss. B I tried a couple of more times and the screen locked again as it did this afternoon around 3:00 my time (CDT). B The second time it locked was about 5:27 CDT.

B

When I do a search in the mail app, the button to activate the search will sometimes be labeled search and sometimes it will be labeled dismiss. B Even with that, the search works properly in the mail app. B I also noticed in the mail app that wen FlickType comes up for a search, it always has the audio announcement that flickType is active. B The alternating label for the button has been the only thing I noticed in the mail app. B Thanks.

Thank you Benny. I got the crash report you sent, but I can't tell if it coincided with when you lost text. The filename indicates it crashed today at 1:57 pm your time. Is that when you lost your text, or could it be unrelated? I've previously noticed that sometimes and for unknown reasons the keyboard will crash right as it's about to pop up, and iOS will immediately relaunch it, and when that happens it might not even be noticeable to users at all.

Hi kosta, 
 I went back and tried to duplicate the problem five times. It did not do it again. 
 I will keep an eye out for this problem, but it may have been a short lived glitch.

Thank you Benny. Are all the problems you describe limited to the YouTube app only? And are they new in this version?

The problems were in Google as well. I didn't seem to have the problems in the mail app search. As I said, there was some inconsistency in the problems. Sometimes everything worked fine. I looked at analytics, but saw nothing today. Thanks.

Dismissed keyboard ok.
Did not experience lock screen or red screen.

Kosta,
A couple of times in YouTube, the FlickType screen has locked up. All that was on the screen was the letters. The home row bar was not there. The screen would not react. Also, I almost always have to touch the screen to wake up FlickType when it comes up. There seems to be some inconsistency when trying to use the search, go and etc. button sometimes it will just not work. Thanks

Hi kosta,
The return key is working fine. At this moment I am getting a lot of red screens.

Also, I tried dismissing the keyboard in messages. When I did, the entire message text field disappeared.
I tried it a couple of times... Same result.
It works ok if I change to the iOS keyboard.

Hello Kosta,
 I am having issued with the FlickType keyboard crashing when trying to use the activate search function in the app store.
 
 I swipe right and hold to activate the search function and the keyboard resprings and my search text is gone. This happens with trying to manually trigger the search button as well... This just started happening tonight.

Hey Kosta,

Sorry in the delay of getting the GarageBand file to you. GarageBand decided that it wanted to update when I opened it, it just finished sheesh. I sent the file to the hello@... email as I didn’t want to clutter the email list with audio files.
