To my knowledge flick type worked in earlier versions of 13.0.
But it stopped working so well in 13.1 which comes out next
Tuesday. It does work in 13.1, but there are some things it wont
repeat. So it does work, but it's really sloppy.

Benny, I haven't used Classic in a very long time.
I'm using the latest FlickType release from the app store. Hope
Are you using FlickType Classic or regular
The app version of FlickType is working
just fine on the 13 release. I have been using it for
the past couple of hours with no issues.
Happy to know that I shouldn't have any
problems setting up new phone tomorrow, and not have to
give up on FlickType for the moment.
Just letting those who were worried about
the update know. Good luck!!

It announces the
word for me when I flick right and all in all it
seems to work OK whenever I used it to type a
bit of straight text.
Flick type will work on IOS
13.1 beta 3 for the most part. But it will not say
the word you typed when you flick to the right to
space: nor will it say what you've deleted if you
flick left. That's what I noticed for the short
time I had it yesterday.

I have no issues of
Voiceover being sluggish in any way on my
iPhone 8 with the iOS 13.1 beta. If
anything everything feels a bit faster,
e.g. opening apps, bring up the app

IOS 13.1 has multiple issues. I tried it
last night, but quickly returned to
12.4.1. There is a choppy affect when
typing that sounds similar to trying to
connect a speaker wire and the connection
going in and out as you get it in place.
for example: when using the main keyboard
and exploring, the letter U sounds like U,
however when you lift your finger to type
that U, it sounds like oo. The same thing
with the letter C. So this can really
throw you off when typing and the C sounds
like an E when you lift your finger to
type it. This is really bad when using
Samantha, but not so bad when using Alex.
But typing is still very slow even if
you're pretty efficient with the keyboard.
It just feels like voice over lags no
matter what you're doing. It felt really
good to get back on 12.4.1. So I would
strongly recommend not updating until this
stuff gets fixed. I'm all about upgrading,
but this is simply not ready in my

Hello Kostla and
As others have stated
already, I want to thank you for all of
your hard work in developing this
keyboard for the blind community in
resolving the task of word processing on
the iPhone. It has definitely improved
my ability to compose and respond to all
types of tasks. Family and health always
comes first. So Ashley, you are in my
thoughts for a speedy recovery. You need
to get your strength back to tackle and
balance the responsibilities of being
mom and work.
On another note, a
heads up from another developer warning
not to upgrade to iOS 13.1. He has heard
from multiple sources that VoiceOver is
the bug that will not work with 3rd
party keyboards. He stated that his app
is working just fine, but not VoiceOver.
Again, I wish all the
best to both of you and you have my
