It sounds like your keyboard may have crashed.
I will forward this to the developer.

I am aware of that. Doesn't address the problem for anyone who would
like to see the text...just not in a font that can be read by anyone
without vi from the other side of the room!

Also I have had a few instances of typing lengthy emails, but when I
swipe FlickType keyboard off screen, none of my text has transferred to
my email! Is this a known issue? Reliability is paramount for many of
us I’m sure.

I hope this helps,

The keyboard is great as and I am happy to pay a small monthly fee for
ongoing development.

However, one thing that is driving me crazy is the lack of control over
the size of the letters that appear as I type. Short words are massive!
This is preventing me from using the app in meetings and public spaces,
which is frustrating as I think the functionality is brilliant.

Is it feasible to introduce an option for users to select a maximum
font size?

Yes I think one will be coming soon. If I could I defenantly pay the 99
cents per month fee.

There is not a half screen option at this time, however one may be
possible in the near future. Unfortunately, it is not as easy as it
sounds. Fleksy had problems with stuttering speech, and FlickType will
probably also have problems.

This is very valid actually.

I tend to go between flick type and braille screen input for the most

Now, for a few questions. I'd rather not make this into a separate
thread because I might be blatantly missing something.

Is there a way to get flick type to show up at the bottom of the
screen only, similar to the default keyboard? As it stands now,
flicking down with one finger and occasionally, if my finger isn't
high enough on the screen, then hitting send is a little counter
intuitive. Maybe that's because of iOS limitations, though, or maybe
there's a hidden setting somewhere I'm failing to find.
I also find when typing a message when I use a notification action and
need to change to flick type as the default keyboard for some reason
the switch keyboard doesn't show up at the bottom left of the screen.
Again, I could be missing something.

Regardless, love this keyboard. I was on android for a while and this
is one of the main reasons I came back to iOS among others. It's truly
a joy to use and certainly, in my mind anyway, far surpasses flexi.
The amount of work put into this and features added in such a short
time is simply staggering.

When Fleksy first came out I paid nineteen dollars and ninety nine
cents as a one time purchase price. Unfortunately, even this high
purchase price did not generate enough revenue to sustain the app, so
they released it to the general public.
In order to please the masses the developers had to make Fleksy
appear more like a qwerty keyboard, which made Fleksy almost
impossible for the visually impaired to operate.

As you can see, a one time purchase price will have to be very
expensive to fund ongoing improvements, maintenance and other

Ninety nine cents a month is surely affordable for anyone who owns an
iPhone and will generate a steady revenue flow, so FlickType will not
end up in the scrap heap like Fleksy.


PS. Three and a half cents a day seems like a steal for a handful of
magic. 😎

On the other side of that coin, paying a one time fee of $15 and
using the app for 2 or 3 years saves me that bit of extra money.
Considering I am in Canada even moreso here.

I wish there was a way to get around apples greedy 35% snatched from
the jar, though. I'd gladly pay with pay pal or something so the
developer gets all of my money.

What I think, to be honest, is that what comes out to $12 a year is
more than reasonable to support ongoing development. There are apps
out there that cost double that or more which may or may not
continue to develop. This way if anyone chooses to no longer use
the app for whatever reason, you cancel the subscription and you're
done. There's no paying a good chunk for something only to find out
two months later that you have wasted that money.

It you are no longer beta testing FlickType, you are more than
welcome to Unsubscrive from the list.
To ensure that you don't receive anymore beta notification.
Go to testflight, it FlickType and FlickType clasic is there.
Then you have the option to stop testing.
This will remove the apps from testflight and your apple id

Kind regards,

I did not subscribe! I was added by the developer! When I signed
up for the beta! Then the developer remove me from the beta
testing since I guess I wasn’t giving any feedback! Then I
unsubscribe from the mailing list but the developer has added me
once again! Without my permission without any action! Not
impressed! Should take this to Apple! I know that I can and sub
from the link below but I want my email address out of his
database so I don’t have to go through this bullshit anymore!
Peace out cheers… Keith

Keith, This may sound like a silly question. But why did you
subscribe, in the first place?

Also, if you go to the bottom of the eMail, you can unsubscribe
