Re: Beta expiring soon
I’m not being negative, I understand that Koster now has a family and the app is not financial to generate enough income at the moment, however I would expect him to come out and say that the app is no longer being developed.
As a previous contributor has said, the slide to type on the Apple keyboard is far better than FlickType at the moment.

Subject: Re: [FlickType] Beta expiring soon
I think Kosta was very clear the last time he sent the group an update. The app is not financially viable and he has a family to support and so would need to focus on income generating operations. Who of us can blame him, I certainly can’t.
FlickType is the best keyboard for the visually impaired by far. It is not dead as the version in the app store works very well with the odd bug, but for everyday use it is a game changer for us and for that I would like to sincerely thank Kosta and Ashley.
The last time the app was about to expire on the beta testing cycle an update came through just in time, I am not convinced there were any major bug fixes, I felt it was a kind person sharing his hard work for people to use for free for a time. I really don’t understand the negativity that is directed towards them by some members of this group.
Thank you Kosta and Ashley for a brilliant app.

My gut instinct is that FlickType is dead,
Even though the developer has had issues of the last couple of months, I would’ve thought that and email from the developer by now would have told us what was going on.

It will still work though, but if you have to uninstall it for any reason, you won’t be able to get it back again.
