Re: Is iOS 14 working with FlickType?

 

Hi Chuck,

 

I was getting pretty frustrated with FlickType and iOS 14.x but I'm having more success with the current beta and iOS 14.1 using the workaround posted about here. I use the full screen setting with FlickType and was finding many instances when texting or emailing that launching the FlickType keyboard would produce no input when tapping the keys. Now when this happens, I turn the rotor until I hear Direct touch and single finger swipe down once to turn it on. This usually corrects the problem and FlickType works as it did in iOS 13. Sometimes, Direct touch doesn't seem to be in the rotor so I do things like going to the App switcher and moving to another app and then returning to the FlickType keyboard to try the rotor again. I usually get to the Direct touch setting no later than the second try. This is more than a little inconvenient but it beats having to type with the regular on screen keyboard.

 

I hope that Kosta is working on this and gets iOS 14 FlickType functionality back to the same level it was before iOS 14.

Subject: [FlickType-beta] Is iOS 14 working with FlickType?

 

Hello everyone,

I’ve been holding off updated to iOS 14 because I noticed some people were having problems with Fliktype and the new iOS.

Have these problems been corrected?

I also noticed on the V iPhone list that Seagirt W. was saying that because he had full access turned on in the accessibility/keyboard settings, he was having Focus issues, and I was wondering if this was a problem.

Is anybody having success with Fliktype and ios 14? If it sounds good I’ll go ahead and update.

Thanks.

Hi chuck
In email it is poor at best. You cannot swipe back to delete words. Sometimes when you’re typing, instead of full words you will get one letter a space one letter space one letter space. Sometimes you can click on the flick type keyboard and you can try to type but the keyboard is not there or will you touch where the keyboard should be there no later is there. Another words the only way you can get the keyboard show up would be to restart the phone.

Right now on a scale of 1 to 10 I would give it a five for usability. That is if it even shows up to be able to use

Sincerely,

Michael maslo

Hi Kosta,

Thanks for coming out with this wonderful app.
I would like to bring it to your attention a problem I face while using flick type, in WhatsApp.
I am giving below the steps to reproduce in iPhone 8 plus running IOS 13.5.1

1. Type a message in a chat and hit the send button.
2. Continue to type the second message, after entering the first word and swiping right, voice over will read the earlier message sent instead of the word entered.

Kindly fix this issue.

With regards.

Arya

Re: Build 273

 

Thank you Salman. In my limited testing, I couldn't reproduce the issue that previously necessitated that setting, and in the interest of simplifying everything for both users as well as myself when developing the app, I removed it.

That said, please let me know if you or anyone else still experiences the issue with WhatsApp, and I will consider adding it back. I also have an idea for a better workaround.

Thanks,
Kosta


Re: Build 273

Salman Haider
 

Hi Kosta,

My question is related to usage of Flicktype within apps on iOS, and
not the Watch as I don't own one. I wanted to ask about the "Almost
Full Screen, Workaround" option; I notice that that was removed in
this beta. As you are aware, this was included to prevent crashes in
apps like Whatsapp and Messenger for instance.
These are the apps that I use Flicktype the most in, in addition to
Mail and Messages.
At the time this option had been included, it had been done after days
and days of effort on your part, and feedback from users like myself
who use Flicktype in these apps...it had been concluded that there
really was no solution to the problem apart from making the keyboard
slightly smaller even in Full Screen mode.
My question is, has the issue been resolved completely, so much so
that this option is no longer necessary? I would hate for me to not be
able to use Flicktype in any of these apps in Full Screen mode and
begin experiencing these crashes again.
Can you please shed some light on this and share why the option was
removed? Flicktype is critical in my everyday use of iOS devices, as
it is for a lot of other users, so I really hope that removing this
option doesn't cause the issues as it did previously.

Thanks,

Salman

Hi all,

Please let me know if build 273 works better on Apple Watch. Note that the
new "Slide to Type" feature is not very usable yet for VoiceOver users, so
you might want to turn it off from the FlickType app on your iPhone.

Also note that you can now dismiss the keyboard with a flick down to preview
and send your text. As a reminder, to change suggestions on the watch you
can use the Digital Crown.

If anyone is experiencing any crashes, please let me know.

Thank you,

Bug: Flicktype not speaking out the first few letters of a word

Ravi Pinapaka
 

Hello,
When I type with flicktype, it sometimes doesn’t speak the first few letters of a word. It mostly doesn’t speak out the first 2 or 3 letters. It’s not restricted to a single app. And I can’t pinpoint what’s causing it. It seems random. I’m on the latest beta.


Crashed

Chuck Dean
 

Hello, while using the container app running the latest beta, I have had the app crash the last two times.
I am using it now... So far so good.
In both cases I shared the crash data.
This has never happened before these two times???

Re: Explanation needed

Hello,
A two finger double tap performs the same action as the numbers/letters toggle on the iOS keyboard.

A two finger single tap performs the same action as the shift key on the iOS keyboard. Use it for capital letters and additional symbols.
I hope this helps,
