Hello,

Maybe typing in portrait also makes a difference.t I could hold my phone and type with one hand, but usually the phone is resting against me or a table. Quite often, I am lying down resting while typing since I struggle with fatigue. My right thumb holds the left side of the iPhone 7 while my second finger is used for typing, my third finger is in somewhat of a vertical position hanging wherever it chooses, and the other two fingers rest against the right side of the phone or case. For me, using thumbs to type would be incredibly awkward. Again, I am sorry if my question is offensive. It’s just hard to understand why the magic tap gesture requires two hands. I am not certain as to which gestures I would prefer for FlickType until I try them out. I hope that I wouldn't accidentally press a key or invoke another command with the flick and hold gestures. Remembering to find the typing style button is getting easier, but having the switch be seamless is more preferrable. The bottom line for me is this: I really don't know what I want, what is most useful or practical until I try it out.

Build 69.

Paul Sutton
 

Hi chuck, since the introduction of touch typing within FlickType, I have needed to revert back too the iOS keyboard less and less. Hopefully there will even come a time where I will never need to use it. The problem at the moment is that I will always have to dismiss or change the keyboard when I have finished typing and I need to send an email or a text and using more than one finger can be awkward. Of course I am more than capable of using more than one finger but it's a matter of convenience. If I am in a position where I can not use my other hand then yes, I could put my phone down to perform the two finger tap but that seems inconvenient to me. Also, what if I am standing up outside so then I wouldn't be able to put my phone down to perform the action.
Regards, Paul.

Flicktype and landscape mode.

Chuck Dean
 

Hi Kosta, I updated to build 68 and build 69 and now my iPhone will go into landscape mode. I'll try to pay attention to see if the problem returns.


Chuck


Build 69 will not switch to landscape mode.

Chuck Dean
 

Build 69 will not switch to landscape mode.
Hi Kosta,
A beta tester pointed out that her phone would not go into landscape mode, neither would mine in any app. I reverted back to build 67 and restarted my iPhone, now it works.
I reverted to build 68 but did not restart my iPhone, so I am not sure which build it is.

Yes ! When you start typing and you miss spell a word . You hear a bubble sound . Tslitely touch at the top of the ios keyboard , and you should get the correct word  .

I agree with Macky on preferring the magic tap gesture to switch between FlickTyping and touch typing. I always prefer a toggle action and using the magic tap to switch between these two seems more logical than having a touch and hold to switch to touch typing and  then having to find the key to the left of the spacebar to switch back to FlickTyping. Never mind that changing to this different gesture regime occurred at the same time I experienced the problem I'm having with being unable to get back to FlickTyping which I've already posted about.

I think there is a split in the camp here, but I preferred the double tap gesture to enable the touch typing mode and the press and hold gesture to return to the iOS keyboard. My reasoning for this is the double tap is quicker and I invariably would be changing between flick and touch much more than flick and iOS. It just seemed more responsive to me that way and it also eliminated the need to feel around for the dedicated change back to flick typing button at the bottom. I don't think there is a right or wrong answer to this, just personal preference. Macky

I really like what you've done in this build though, in that I can tap and hold, and navigate to the key I want, all in one go. Superb. 

 

I too like the idea of a half screen option. But I also see that this could be difficult for some users. Many people cannot see enough to be as targeted as others in there taps, so the full screen keyboard allows them much more ability to type successfully. So if implemented, it would have to be optional. The same fact is true for the discussion yesterday about typing accuracy. Of course user training and practice is necessary, but its easier for those of us who have some usable sight to be accurate than those who don't. So lets not dismiss the need to keep that conversation in mind.

I believe at some point there will be no difference between the modes. I think the short cuts are simply there to return to the gesture keyboard at this point and time. I think we will have the same manual typing as the keyboard in the future.

Hi George, those tiny letters haven't been seen by these eyes for thirty years. When I type a six letter word, the size of the font on the FlickType keyboard is about as small as I can see with my naked eye.

I agree with Macky on preferring the magic tap gesture to switch between FlickTyping and touch typing. I always prefer a toggle action and using the magic tap to switch between these two seems more logical than having a touch and hold to switch to touch typing and  then having to find the key to the left of the spacebar to switch back to FlickTyping. Never mind that changing to this different gesture regime occurred at the same time I experienced the problem I'm having with being unable to get back to FlickTyping which I've already posted about.

I think there is a split in the camp here, but I preferred the double tap gesture to enable the touch typing mode and the press and hold gesture to return to the iOS keyboard. My reasoning for this is the double tap is quicker and I invariably would be changing between flick and touch much more than flick and iOS. It just seemed more responsive to me that way and it also eliminated the need to feel around for the dedicated change back to flick typing button at the bottom. I don't think there is a right or wrong answer to this, just personal preference. Macky

Re: A test with Fleksy.

Not at all. It seemed the more I tried, the worse I got. I took the keyboard off the list, but I'll leave the app on my iPhone as a backup. My go to keyboard is still the FlickType app. I can type with total confidence and I am well adjusted to the gestures.

Hey chuck, 

the two finger swipe down is a very precise short flick in the lower right hand corner of the keyboard. Once you get it a couple of times its not to bat. It is hard to get right though.
