Re: Great built with some questions...

Sharon Kim
 

Hello all,
Okay the vanishing text bit... has never happened to me. Not going to lie.
I love the current build, thank you so very much for putting in the
next button. It is greatly appreciated.
One other thing, the 3d touch thing confuses me. I just sooner not
deal with it, especially if the gestures are going to be there.
I hope anyways, you wont' take out the gestures for the 3d things.
Because... no clue what those are.
anyways, hope this helps.

Hi Kosta,
My text has only vanished twice, and I do a lot of typing. It is not a deal
breaker for me.

Thanks for the comments.

On low vision color schemes, as well as the visual appearance of the
keyboard, we are planning to improve those soon, but probably not before
the custom keyboard launches on the App Store.

On 3D Touch not working for you Ed, it could be the iOS beta that's
causing the issue, but you can try adjusting the 3D Touch sensitivity from
the Accessibility settings. Also the pressure required for this to work in
FlickType may be more than you are used to - if so I might need to reduce
that threshold a bit. I should also add here that 3D Touch is not a main
area of focus right now, and in fact I mostly wanted to make sure that
nobody accidentally triggers it when they don't intend to. The actual
action may change, for example it could switch between letters and numbers
or symbols, and the action might even be configurable in the future.

On full emoji support within FlickType: this is definitely planned, but
might not make it before launching on the App Store. However, customizing
the emoji shortcuts should be there soon, before we launch.

On the shortcut options in the main app, are you referring to number or
symbol entry? We are currently assessing what we could do with an extra
row above the letters, and this could be a number row, or a common symbols
row, or something similar to the current app, but we want to make sure the
learning curve is not as steep as what's in the main app today. This will
probably be something we add post-launch. Also, it would be very helpful
if you could tell us the top few use cases that you love about it as it is
in the app now. And one final note on this, for email fields we will soon
make the @ and period symbols available in the main layout, similar to the
iOS keyboard.

Phonetics when performing manual input are coming soon.

On sometimes getting an adjacent letter entered when lifting your finger
to do manual input: this was not the case before, but I had to temporarily
disable the code that prevented that as it was making selecting the
numbers, next keyboard, dismiss and return keys harder to select. This
should be fixed soon.

On vanishing text: I am investigating this right now, and is I think the
biggest problem we are currently experiencing. One thing I'd love to
better assess, is how common this occurrence is. I understand that losing
your text even just once can be a very poor experience, but is it
currently happening enough that you'd rather use the iOS keyboard
instead?

Thanks for your continued feedback, much appreciated, smile.

Possibly, Dave is using an iPhone 10 also, he is having good success. 
 
 Did you say your text just vanished? I had a similar problem yesterday, with build 71. 
 Be sure to report it to Kosta.

Hi Dave, 
 I thought I'd would prefer the old flick up gesture, too, but since using the 3D touch, I really like it better. Less movement.😎

Re: Build 72

Ed Worrell
 

Hello all,

I really love the simple and elegant way you solved the gesture issues some of us were having. I really think this is a great build. The only issue I am having so far is with the 3d or hard press on a letter to capitalize it. I can not get this to trigger on my iPhone x to save my life. I always use 3d touch on my phone and I simply can't get this function to work. I am going to try and restart my phone to see what happens happens after that.

Thanks for the quick updates. You guys are awesome!

Hi Kosta,
This build is great! I really like the hard press to cap the letter.
Good idea of having the option for the dismiss and next keyboard buttons. I turned them off, the flick and hold works great for me.

Great job!👍

Re: Build 72

Chuck Dean
 

My bad. I didn't realize I had to be holding down for those keys to be visible. Actually, they are too small for my eyes.
Fortunately, the flick and hold gestures work fine for me.

I can see a globe in all my devices here, but perhaps some accessibility setting causes unexpected behavior.

If someone could take a screenshot and send it to me it might help me figure out what's going on. Note that it might be tricky to take a screenshot while holding your finger down on the screen.

It was three or four sentences.

Chuck, in those two instances that you mention, roughly how much text did you lose? Was it up to a sentence, or perhaps up to the last new line if there was one?

I don't see a globe either.

Hi costa, I can not see any globe at the bottom of the screen. Only the white bar.

Kind Regards,

Hi George, what do you mean exactly? The button is displayed as a white globe icon, similar to the standard iOS "Next Keyboard" button. Are you referring to the visual announcement for it?

Also thank you for pointing out the location of the button, I should have clarified this myself: The "Next Keyboard" button is near the bottom left corner, whereas the "Dismiss" button, if enabled, is near the bottom right corner.

Ok, the next keyboard button is at the bottom left side of the screen. Can you make this button a visual button?

Kind Regards,

- Added a "Next Keyboard" button for those having trouble with the flick up & hold gesture. If you don't need the button, you can disable it from the main app settings.
- Also added a setting for a "Dismiss" button similar to the above, but this one is off by default since most people didn't seem to have trouble with the flick down & hold gesture. If you do have trouble performing that gesture, you can enable this button from the settings.
- The shift state now resets after entering a single character, so it behaves more like a shift key rather than a caps lock.
- The shift state now affects words that were not manually typed, meaning that if you switch to uppercase in the middle of a sentence and type a word like "banana", it will be capitalized.
- Words will be capitalized after a new line.
- On devices that support 3D Touch, pressing down harder while exploring the keyboard will toggle the secondary layout, meaning the state of shift if you are in letters, or switch between numbers and symbols if you are in either numbers or symbols.





Re: Build 72

 

All letters, symbols and control keys only become visible while you are exploring and pressing down on the keyboard. As soon as you let go they disappear.
