Hi Jessica,

Great question. Our family has been sick for the better part of the past few weeks and Kosta is still quite sick. He's anxious to get back to work as soon as possible, but will the App Store review team working limited hours it's hard to predict if we'll get an update in by the 22nd and whether it will be approved before they close down for the holidays.

Warmly,
Ashley





Re: Status of next version?

 

Thanks, Maria!! Merry Christmas and happy New Year to you as well!

Question Regarding Privacy

David Goldfield
 

Hello.

I do remember that the betas of Flicktype indicated that keyboard entry could be sent back to the developer but I assumed that this was not the case for the production version. After doing a resotre of my iPhone I reenabled Flicktype as a keyboard, only to see a similar message that by enabling full access what I typed could be sent to the developer of the app. I'm writing to ask for clarification on this as I admit to being very concerned about this.

Hi David and thank you for the question.

FlickType does not collect what you type, as stated in our extremely simple privacy policy here: https://www.flicktype.com/privacy

Apple always shows this warning, since they have no way of knowing what an app does once it is given full access. I do think they are right to warn their users of the risks, every time.

Kosta,

Thanks so much for the clarification and for the link to your privacy policy. It's very much appreciated. Thank you for your work on Flicktype.

Re: Question Regarding Privacy

 

Every single third-party keyboard I have ever seen requires you to give permission for that.

Any update on version 4.4?

Jessica D
 

Hi,
This is Jessica.
I was wondering if you knew an ETA for Flicktype 4.4?

Since I'm a subscriber, will I need to pay, when the app itself becomes paid?

When will this change take affect?

Thanks,
Jessica

What's going on with Flicktype?

Hello,

I was just wondering what's going on with Flicktype?
I saw a beta come out a few months ago, and have heard nothing sinse.

Thanks,
Jessica

Re: What's going on with Flicktype?

 

Hi Jessica,

Why not just be patient a bit longer, I'm sure Kosta and Ashley are working on the next update, but don't forget that they are just two people with a new baby who may also have other commitments.

Hey Guys,
Ashley sent out a note about a week ago. It stated that Kosta was doing some changes on the backend. That can take time. They also have a new addition to their family. Not to sound obnoxious, but be patient.
I’m sure updates will come soon enough.
Best, jp

Re: What's going on with Flicktype?

 

Thanks, guys, in case you missed the update we sent out last week. Kosta has been working away at rebuilding the entire typing engine from scratch. It may seem like nothing is happening, but Kosta is working 18 hour days to get this done as quickly as possible. I've been swamped with our kids, our young baby has been sick for many days now with a lung infection, so we apologize that we've been more quiet than usual.

We'll keep everyone posted.

Warmly,
Ashley

You guys take your time and don't let this stress you out. What you're working on will be awesome when we get it. What we have now works well and I use it constantly. I text all the time and don't even use dictation anymore because of how well this app works.
