Re: Any better results with FlickType keyboard and iOS 13.1.2?

Chuck Dean

Hello JP,
I have been using the container app. I forgot how much I like this app. The typing is extremely stable, and editing is much easier than other text fields.

While I will continue to use FlickType in various text fields, I think I'll use the container app for longer typing sessions, like this email reply.😎

The suggestion Chuck made was suggested by Callum last week. It does help, but still inconsistent. The container in app works best, but slows my workflow.
No keyboard is currently friendly to the blind. While tedious, touch typing is what I use most. I like QuickPath, but doesn’t have a reliable way of knowing if you typed there, their, or they’re. Which means you need to spellcheck after.

Hello Paula,
I have found that I can go to VoiceOver settings, then to typing, then to typing feedback and turn on Words, I can Use FlickType and almost all the functions are working. The Words are spoken when flicking right, but not the punctuation. It is a little sporadic, but it does work.

No, I’m using it in apps like WhatsApp, email, messages, and so on. It doesn’t work properly, but it is no worse since iOS 13.1.2.

Hello Paula,
Are you using FlickType in the container app, the flicktype app has not been effected by the iOS update.

The problem is when typing onboard in other apps, i. e. Doing a Google search or making a Yelp entry. After typing a word, the word is not spoken after swiping right.

It’s working fine for me in iOS 13.1 .2, at least no different from iOS 13.1.

Hi Alan,
FlickType is broken in iOS 13.1.2!
My iPhone updated without asking me and now I can not use FlickType in other apps.
Flicktype in the container app works perfectly. This is what I am using to type this email.
My advice... Do not update!

Hi List,


I've delayed updating from iOS 12.4.1 to iOS 13.x due to issues with third party keyboards and Voiceover users. Now that iOS is on its fourth iteration since September 19th can anyone running iOS 13.1.2 comment on your results with it and FlickType?


I need to start learning iOS 13 but as I do most of my iPhone input with FlickType, I'm not ready to sacrifice that functionality if FlickType still isn't working with the latest iOS 13 release.


Thanks in advance.
