Re: Have any FlickType keyboard users upgraded to iOS 14.8?

Hello Alan, 
We are talking about the same thing. 
What a bummer! 
I thought the apps were stored in the cloud. This is one more reason why I will hang on to this iPhone 8 for as long as possible.

Hi Chuck,

I'm not sure we're pulling on the same thread. I've been talking about the source of apps when getting a new iPhone and I thought you were talking about apps in the app library of your current device. Apps on a new iPhone must come from the App Store so only those still available there will download to a new device. This is true whether you do a device to device transfer of settings and content or whether you restore a backup from the iCloud or from a local computer. Therefore, FlickType will not download to a new device. If you're talking about something else, please enlighten me.

So those apps are not in the iCloud, they only download from the App Store?

Hi Chuck,

 

Yes, I know about the App library found on the last home screen of my iPhone. FlickType is running just fine on my current iPhone whether as a keyboard or as the container app. However, at some point, I’ll have to upgrade this iPhone and FlickType will be unavailable to my new iPhone which must download its apps from the App Store.

Hello Ellen,

Yep library is on your phone. If you do a three finger swipe left to the last page, there is your app library. It should have all the apps that you have loaded onto the phone, regardless of whether they are on the screen or not. Take a look, that’s where I found some very old apps I forgot about.

Well, there is no app library on your local computer anymore since Apple changed iTunes a few years back requiring new devices to download apps from the App Store as opposed to restoring them from a local computer. I expect my use of FlickType whether as a keyboard or with the container app will end when I upgrade to a new iPhone.

Hello Alan, I really do not know what will happen in the future, but as it is right now there is no FlickType keyboard for iPhone in the app store. If compatible, FlickType should be able to install from your app library. 

 

I always turned off full access after I did testing and the container app always worked. 

 

I would love to see FlickType classic beck in the app store... At least it would give the community something.

Hi Chuck,

 

Thanks for your post and comments about the FlickType container app. Do you know if the container app will be available in iOS 15 or available for download once a new device is purchased requiring re-download of all apps from the App Store? I’m happy to be able to continue to use FlickType however possible and I first began using Fleksy and FlickType by copying and pasting as is done with the container app and is still faster. I suspect the FlickType container app will not be obtainable from the App Store when purchasing a new device.

 

Do you have full access turned off under Settings, FlickType on your device? Is this required in order to use the container app successfully on your device?

 

Thanks for your help.

Hello Alan, 

 

I tried FlickType in the container app and it seems to work fine, but I do not have full access enabled, so I can not tell you if it is working in other fields. 

 

I have always used the old FlickType classic app, which has always worked perfectly in every iOS update and does not require full access to work. It does require a few more taps to export the text, but FlickType Classic has been my go to keyboard.

Hi List,

 

With the FlickType keyboard no longer available in the App Store, I’ve being very careful about upgrading my SE 2020 to new versions of IOS. I’m sure the FlickType keyboard will not work with iOS 15 so I have no plans to upgrade to it for a while. I’m not sure whether the FlickType keyboard will work with iOS 14.8 which dropped in the past couple of days. Have any of you using the keyboard upgraded to iOS 14.8 and if so, does the FlickType keyboard work with it?

 

Thanks in advance for your help.
