Best way to install a stable version of Flicktype

Daniel McGee

Hi all

I know this is a beta list but what if the best way to install the stable version of Flicktype over the beta?

When installing a recent app store version, I was prompted for my apple ID credentials, after opening the flicktype main app.

So if possible, I would like to try and avoid this behavior from happening to me again.




Hi Daniel,

Thanks for the message here, we want to make sure it's clear in case we didn't explain ourselves properly on your other post: there's nothing on our end that we can do to control when Apple prompts for a sign in and whether you'll experience this again when trying to install FlickType from the App Store. It sounds like you're attempting to download FlickType from the App Store over the beta, which is the only way of transferring from the beta version to the App Store version. Anytime a user downloads something from Apple's App Store there's a chance they will ask for a sign in or whatever other requirements they may have for App Store users, just as they asked me a few days ago to sign in when I attempted to listen to a song on Apple Music. If you're not comfortable with that you are more than welcome to remain on the beta, but of course, the tradeoff is that the beta is not as stable as the App Store versions of FlickType.

Hope this helps,
