Thank you George for catching that. For some reason the wrong version is showing in the settings. I’ll fix it with the next build.

Hi George, 
 
 Go to the container app, then to settings. You will see emoji, with the current four in a line. Using the iOS and emoji keyboards to edit or add emoji into this line.

 Hey Kosta, Ashley. And listers, 
 
 I love the ability to customize emojis, I have run into a problem though. I didn't realize how many of them I use on a regular basis. I find myself wanting the ability to add more.

Currently, only the first 6 emojis you enter in the textfield will be available as emoji shortcuts. We can expand this to include some more, but we might always want to limit it since flicking through dozens and dozens of emoji won't be that great, and we plan to offer full emoji support in the future anyway.

Thank you for the facebook messenger report, it's good to be aware of it. I do want to note though that you can still do what you need to do without the Classic app, since you can now also type and export using the new container app, in the "Demo" tab. It doesn't yet have shortcuts for copy and clear, or automatically copy and clear on exit, but the share sheet does include a "Copy" option. Just making sure everybody's aware.

Thanks for the feedback, please keep it coming, smile!

I'm still confused. To add more emoji's, do I need to add the emoji keyboard to my list of keyboards in settings?

Kind Regards,

George Cham

Ok, I've worked it out. I added a lot of emoji. But if full emoji support is comming, then I'll wait for the full complement.

Hi,

In the new container app on iPhone X, it appears that the keyboard is lower down the screen than it is in the system wide one.

On the plus side, I'm running iOS 12 beta end right now at least, Apple appear to have fixed the issue with the home and app switcher gestures not working in apps such as FlickType where custom gestures are active. At least I think that's a good thing☺️

Dave


 

Thank you David. The demo keyboard is indeed misplaced on the iPhone X, and it also does not yet support landscape mode. These will be addressed soon.

Good to know about iOS 12 and the gestures, smile!

Also FYI, build 81 was just released to the beta group, and FlickType Classic is now available on the App Store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/flicktype-classic-legacy/id1395638984?mt=8

Cool.
So does that mean that as we speak, there are essentially two identical apps on the app store?

Hello Kosta,

I am having the exact opposite happen to me on the iOS 12 beta. I am triggering the the home gesture much more frequently than in iOS 11.4. I don’t believe it’s human error as I thought in a previous email. I have placed my finger up on the screen about a 1/2 inch or so, and I am now triggering the home gesture about every third swipe up. This being the first beta release of iOS 12 they could adjust the sensitivity of the gesture in future builds.


Thanks,

Ed

Hi Ed,

Apple do seem to have changed the behaviour. From my experience, in iOS 11 the VoiceOver home and app switcher gestures did not work at all when in FlickType. And in fact, the sighted user methods were in force.
Now, in iOS 12, the correct VoiceOver gestures are working. For me, they are only being invoked it I slide up from the very bottom of the screen, as it should be. So I am not finding any conflict.
Interesting if you are.

Dave
