Hello Daniel,

One glitch I have noticed, after you type a word and flick right twice to insert a period, FlickType will announce the last word you typed instead of period, but it does insert the punctuation mark.

I see that there is a new version of FlickType  in the App Store.  V2021.10,

Besides the obvious,, removing the extension to type in all apps, has there been improvements with  VO in the relation to the standard app and iOS 15.

Hi Dave,

 

Yes, I agree that I’m in no hurry to upgrade to iOS 15 primarily because of concerns of what it might do to FlickType.

 

Thanks for clarifying that your FlickType issues have been present across multiple iOS versions.

I've always experienced these issues in the mail app so noticed no change on my devices. I sent the second message because I had more opportunity to test and wanted to share my findings for others who had questions especially regarding the classic app. I'm happy that it worked better for you in 14.8. The classic app will be my go to app from now on. If you've had zero issues with the system wide keyboard then I'd say you probably should not upgrade not for fear of losing the app but for fear of losing the very good behavior that you are currently enjoying.

Dave,

 

I'm having difficulty reconciling your comments below with the following you made in an earlier post:

 

I upgraded and am using flick type to compose this message on the system wide keyboard. It seems to be working exactly as it did before on my device. I haven't yet tried the container app  or the classic version but I see no reason why they wouldn't work. Of course if it is not installed on your device before you upgrade you probably won’t have it after you upgrade. Anyone should expect that. Just thought you would all like to know. Have a great day.

 

So, are you saying that with FlickType running under iOS 14.x that you had the same issues with FlickType not speaking the predictive alternatives completely nor in speaking deletions completely? FlickType under iOS 14.8 works great for me with prediction alternatives and with deleting words.

 

Please help me understand whether upgrading to iOS 15 affected the performance of FlickType on your device because I’m a bit confused based on your previous two posts.

 

Thanks.

Hi, I also noticed that while using the systemwide keyboard, the words typed are not always spoken completely. Also, as mentioned in another reply, flicking up and down through Suggestions only reads the first or last letter of the words selected  Flicking left to delete words only says space if anything at all. The behavior seems to be the same in the container app. The classic version however still behaves as it always has. Everything is spoken as I would expect. I’ll probably start using that one more consistently since the behavior appears to be more on Target and consistent.

Hello Daniel,
Thank you.
I updated my FlickType keyboard. The container app seems to work almost exactly as before, except when you are finished typing you go to the upper right and hit done. Next a share button will appear and you can send a text to messages, mail, notes, etc. 
I went to keyboard settings to see if Fliktype was in the list, and it is not.

Also, as mentioned in another reply, flicking up and down through Suggestions only reads the first or last letter of the words selected  Flicking left to delete words only says space if anything at all. The behavior seems to be the same in the container app. The classic version however still behaves as it always has. Everything is spoken as I would expect. I’ll probably start using that one more consistently since the behavior appears to be more on Target and consistent.

Re: iOS 15 and flick type

 

Dave,

 

I'm having difficulty reconciling your comments below with the following you made in an earlier post:

 

I upgraded and am using flick type to compose this message on the system wide keyboard. It seems to be working exactly as it did before on my device. I haven't yet tried the container app  or the classic version but I see no reason why they wouldn't work. Of course if it is not installed on your device before you upgrade you probably won’t have it after you upgrade. Anyone should expect that. Just thought you would all like to know. Have a great day.

 

So, are you saying that with FlickType running under iOS 14.x that you had the same issues with FlickType not speaking the predictive alternatives completely nor in speaking deletions completely? FlickType under iOS 14.8 works great for me with prediction alternatives and with deleting words.

 

Please help me understand whether upgrading to iOS 15 affected the performance of FlickType on your device because I’m a bit confused based on your previous two posts.

 

Thanks.

 

Alan Lemly

Thank you for that information!
I have always use the FlickType Classic app, because it works perfectly all the time. It’s much more simple, and doesn’t need to interact with different apps.
Even when I was an alpha and beta tester on FlickType, when I was finished testing I would always turn full access off and go back to FlickType Classic app. In my opinion is the best incarnation of Fliktype.

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

Hi Jessica,


I tooh gone back to using my Braille displays with my iPhone. I am running IOS 14.8 on a 6S. I haven't had any issues so far in editing text with it, but I'm navigating on the Braille display. I'm using a Brailliant 40 X or my Brailliant 14. Although dictation is pretty accurate for me, when I'm in a public space, It's not my preferred method. JMO.

Best,

I uninstalled it when I realized it didn't work on 15. But I wanted to try it again, so I went to the app store and clicked on purchases to show me everything I've ever downloaded from the app store and it was there. But it's still broken. If you swipe to the left it says space instead of the word you're deleting. And it only says the first letter of possible correction words when you flick down.

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

Hello Sean,
Have you tried the FlickType container app to type? I’m just wondering if it works in iOS 15. Considering that’s about the only way I’ve ever used FlickType, and FlickType Classic, as long as it works and 15 then I will update.
Thanks for any info,

Hi all 

 

There are always the  direct touch typing and slide to type. Combined these together, and typing on the iPhone isn't bad. Of coarse the experience is nothing compared to FlickType but anything is better than nothing. Plus the original Fleksy is still around in the App Store.

Hi Chuck,

 

Thanks for confirming my understanding of the inability to port apps to another device when they are no longer available in the App Store. I suspect we won’t have any luck convincing Kosta to put anything in the App Store since I believe he is suing Apple over their latest series 7 watch keyboard. But I tend to be a glass half empty sort of guy regarding such things.

 

At any rate, I’m beginning to try other on screen keyboard typing methods since I realize that my days with FlickType are numbered. I downloaded Microsoft SwiftKey today and will give it a try. It was hard in the past when trying slide to type and other keyboard features since they all paled in comparison to FlickType but my perspective has now changed.

Out of  curiosity I erased an old iPhone 6S and tried to download FlickType from the clout, and also from my old Mac. Unfortunately, you are right, it could not download any app that is no longer in the app store. ️

Hi Eileen,

 

I just updated my SE 2020 to iOS 14.8 and am happy to report that my flicktype keyboard is still working just fine. I don't believe that will be the case with iOS 15 so I will be in no hurry to upgrade to it.

 

A few years back, you could use iTunes to download apps to your local computer and carry them forward to a new device. However, Apple changed that approach as they moved more to cloud based orientation and now all apps transferred to a new device must come from the App Store. The names of your installed apps do transfer to the new device as do their installed screen locations but the app itself must download from the App Store and if it's no longer there, you're out of luck. I experienced this with a money reader app that I had on an old device that was no longer in the App Store when I upgraded to my iPhone SE 2020 so that app is no longer on my device.

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

Jessica D
 

Hi,

 

I’ve used MBraille in the passed, & braille screen input keeps crashing for me.

So now, I connected my focus 40 5th generation, and am using that.

When I don’t have it with me though, I use dictation, which has gotten way better in ios 15.

I already have ios 15, because I’ve been beta testing it, since the developer beta became available.

Its pretty good.

I was trying to edit something lengthy last night, and my braille display wouldn’t let me delete charicters.

I’d try, but they just keep coming back.

 

Why would this be?

 

Thanks,

 

Jessica

Luke,

I meant having Voiceover speak the character while sliding over the letters
while using slide to type. I believe the slide to type delay set only
affects the delay before slide to type is activated when resting your finger
on a key. I don't believe slide to type is currently designed to provide any
audio feedback while your finger is sliding among the characters in the
words being typed.

Isn't that what touch typing already does?
Or do you mean to have that, along with the slide to type word completion?

If so, you might be able to achieve something like it with a long enough
slide to type delay set.
