Re: iOS 13.3 and flicktype across the system

Luke Davis

Thank you Gordon. That was the ticket! For me, at least.

Double tapping and sliding up gets some extra keyboard options, such as left handed keyboard, and Flicktype.

Thanks again.

I just did some testing and the appearance is different on my iPhone 7 than it is on my 10R. On my 10R the dictate button is there on the bottom right side of the screen. However there is no dictate button on the 7 while flick type is the active keyboard. On the 10R, a double tap of the next keyboard button will cycle through all of my keyboards. However on the 7, I have to double tap and hold the next keyboard button and slide my finger up the side of the screen. As I make my way to the top it will announce different keyboards. So you just release your finger when you're on the one you want. So you want to try double tapping and holding the next keyboard button and sliding up to get the one you want to be active. But the next keyboard button is not there on the 7 when flick type is active. So I do a slide up to have flick type advance to the next keyboard.

I have had exactly the same problem, tried everything to sort it out, but I can’t seem to, so have given up with FlickType, sadly.

After update to iOS 13.3, Flicktype still doesn't work system wide.
I removed and re-installed the app, and still it does not work.
I can change keyboard to imoji. After that, the next keyboard button says "Flicktype", but when I tap it, it just goes back to the English keyboard.
In fact, it still announces "next keyboard: flicktype", but if I actually read the button, it isn't Flicktype, but either Imoji or English.
And yet some of you are having success on iOS 13.3? What are your settings?
