Date   

Latency

Michael Maslo
 

Hello list, I am noticing a issue. I notice on my iPhone ten that the keyboard seems to be higher than it used to be. I am unsure if this is accurate but when I type the letters at the bottom of the keyboard, it puts spaces and such. Also when I am flicking up and down through selections, it is sometimes where I have to flick several times before it moved to the next selection. Also I stopped received messages from the beta group and was wondering why. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Potential beta release, and other responses

I have to say that I have gotten quite used to the one finger tap and
hold gesture to switch back to the iOS keyboard from FlickType. Being
able to perform all basic functions with one hand/one finger is
definitely paramount for me while using FlickType.

. Obviously, this gesture is going to be changed as manual text entry
gets added to the custom keyboard (as it should).
My question is, can we still have a one finger gesture to switch back
to the iOS keyboard? One that would not interfere with any other
actions or gestures.
A one finger swipe up and hold, or a one finger swipe down and hold
gesture (which in the main app brings up the menu), or, a one finger
double tap and hold, or a one finger triple tap and hold gesture.
In my opinion, incorporating the hold element in whatever gesture is
decided upon for switching keyboards, would be a good way to go about
it.
For inserting a new line, I had suggested a one finger swipe right and
hold gesture. It is something that I believe was implemented in the
old Fleksy back in the day and it seemed to work quite well back then.
Again, something that would still be performed using one hand, and not
interfere with any of the other gestures/actions.
Just some thoughts/suggestions.

Build 65 just went out to the beta group, smile. Aside from any new urgent
issues that come up, the next big item is manual input within FlickType,
including entering new lines.

Stay tuned!

Re: Custom keyboard versus main app #poll

Chanelle Allen
 

Hello,
Like mike, I find it easy to switch between the FlickType and iOS keyboards when entering symbols, new lines, and non dictionary words. The FlickType app is still needed for adding words to the custom dictionary, adjusting tap settings, and periodically exporting my dictionary. I am making myself use the FlickType keyboard to improve my typing and interacting with text fields. With more practice and deliberate incorporation into writing tasks, the more proficient I will become and the more prepared to use the FlickType keyboard exclusively when we have manual entry and the ability to add words to the custom dictionary. When the sound and latency were bothersome, I preferred typing in the FlickType app; since Tuesday, I am a FlickType keyboard convert. :) I will probably always be a more proficient braille screen input typist, but only the FlickType keyboard provides the most convenient and efficient means of writing a short, one- sentence response to an email using one hand while eating dinner. And, responding to that email was super easy since I could just switch to my preferred (FlickType) keyboard rather than opening another app and copying/pasting text. 😀 for me, the most cumbersome part of writing on the iPhone is the editing process— probably since I am such a perfectionist. Could a third party keyboard speed up editing tasks such as inserting, deleting, and rearranging text? Its something to think about. I don't expect FlickType or any third party keyboard to speed up my tired brain that is taking a long time to write this email. ☺️

Hello, since the custom keyboard was released, I never had used the main application. If I need to put a symbol or such in, I switch on the apple keyboard and then switch back. It is faster and easier to do that. I guess I am one of the few who never uses the main application.

hi Kosta, the link supplied in the introduction email for the custom keyboard needs log in information to be read. You may want to send an email and copy and paste the instructions so those who haven't been to the Wiki will be informed.

It is not whether it is hard or easy. It is the ability to maintain the program or update it. I am no programmer but I would think that the more lined of code adds to the complexity.
