Build 136

 

Please test the new quote and emoji spacing functionality and report any unexpected behavior, ideally with a small reproducible example.

What's new:
- A space will now be inserted before the first typed emoji. No spaces will be inserted between consecutive emojis.
- Unwanted spaces around quotes will now be stripped.
- FlickType hint announcements have been limited to the first 3 times since launching the keyboard. This will reset whenever the keyboard is relaunched, which happens if you reboot your device, if you update FlickType, if FlickType crashed, or if full access is toggled in the settings. So while this won't prevent the hints entirely for those who really don't need them, it will silence them for the vast majority of the cases.

Previously:
- Touch typing: last-moment key changes right before touching up are now ignored, to avoid accidentally entering characters adjacent to the intended one.
- Touch typing: character phonetic feedback will only be announced while exploring, but not once the character has been entered.
- Setting for "Visual Announcements" will now persist between sessions, and is also available in the Settings screen.
- Fixed settings screen appearing visually broken when accessibility values for "Large Text" are used. Thanks Harry!

Thank you for testing FlickType!

Warmly,
Kosta and Ashley

Hi costa,
Still getting announcements when FlickType is launched.
I've also added 11 emoji in settings.
But only 10 are showing up after flicking up after a period.
The announcements are how to dismiss keyboard and how to select numbers.

Kind Regards,

George Cham

Yes, having crashes due to using quotation marks. Thanks.

Thank you David and Benny. I have not yet received any crash logs. Could you please send me any flicktype logs you may have from the same day? Settings, privacy, analytics, analytics data.

Thanks,
Kosta

Thank you Benny and David, got the crash reports. Looking into it.

One other issue with this build. 
 While the manual typing does seem better, I've noticed that sometimes, if for example I try to type the letter s, VoiceOver will say d as I lift my finger, but I will in fact have successfully typed the s. 
 So the accuracy is improved, but VoiceOver is giving me false information.
