Hi Brandon,

Thanks for writing the post, please share once it's up!

As we have a developing product that we will be making considerable
updates and improvements to, coupled with a small market, an ongoing
subscription model is the best way to ensure that the project is
sustainable and will be around for a long time. This, as well as the fact
that we want to ensure everyone is paying for what they’re using and not
paying a one time purchase for a product that they don't use a year or two
down the road, we feel that a subscription is best for everyone. That being
said, things are not set in stone as we are going to be fluid and adaptable
to the circumstances.

Please let us know if you have any other questions,
Ashley




3 finger single tap

Hello:
The welcome tab says a 3 finger, single tap will read the contents. Is this working correctly? I am unable to get it to read what I have typed.

Congratulations Kosta and Ashley! This is a dream come true for both of you and us users alike.

I have downloaded the app and subscribed, but will also continue to be part of the test team and I look forward to where FlickType goes from here!

I don't think there is a major rush for this at all, but I do miss the flick left and hold gesture to delete quickly that the classic app has, but obviously this isn't a massive issue.

Congratulations again!

Dear FlickType friends,

We could not be any more excited today to share with you our biggest news yet: The brand new, system-wide FlickType keyboard is now available on the App Store! Link: https://bit.ly/FlickType. Packed with emoji, cursor control, better dictionary and so much more! A huge thank you to all our amazing testers, we couldn't have done it without you ☺️

The new container app is also much easier to navigate, has improved instructions and is totally free to use. For the system-wide custom keyboard, we are offering a free 7-day trial, and after that it's just 99 cents per month. Continuing to build out this technology is no small task, and this will support our ongoing development costs so that we can continue to provide you with the very best VoiceOver typing experience available.

All beta testers can continue to use the custom keyboard free of charge, but we hope that you will also support us by simply downloading FlickType from the App Store and choosing the "Upgrade" option. You will still receive new beta builds as usual, and your subscription will continue unless cancelled from your App Store settings.

Once again, a big thank you to everyone for your help and support over the last few months, and we can't wait to show you what else we've planned for the future of VoiceOver typing. Please help us spread the word!

Warmly,
Kosta and Ashley

Re: System-wide FlickType keyboard now available on the App Store!

Travis Peterson
 

I'm' curious, Have you considered a one-time, lifetime, buy-in option as well? I know that you will have worked really hard to figure out your pricing structure. But I know that I would prefer to pay $20 for a lifetime of FlickType than to pay the $1 per month. This is not because I think the product not worth the cost, but simply because I'd prefer not to have a regular $1 charge on a monthly basis.

Or, even if the cost was annual, would you consider $10 per year for folks who would prefer not to have the repeated monthly transaction?

I know that I will use my business expense account to pay for Flicktype, and the monthly transaction will require me to submit a receipt each month. I'd much prefer a less regular--less often--transaction.

Any consideration there?

Again, I'm grateful for what you are doing. You've put together a solid product, and its totally worth the money.

Blessings,

Travis

Hello,
I'm writing to provjde feedback about the things that bother me, so they can be addressed.
1. The fact that the app is full-screen makes it impossible to enter information when composing email, and text-messages.
2. The visual affects setting is never remembered
3. Elinmate the subscription and charge a flat fee for the keyboard.
ard. ad more color options for the background.

Add dictation support
get rid of the swipe gestures such as flick down and hold. I have a hard time using these gestures.

Thanks,

Jessica

Kosta and Ashley,

Congratulations on getting the first build of the system wide keyboard extension live in the App Store. It’s been fun to help with the progress of making the keyboard what it is today, and I can’t wait to help with whatever else you two ask us (The beta and Alpha testers) to assist with next. Great job!

Good luck with the new system white keyboard. Pleased to report that the flick and hold gestures are now much more reliable. I also like the spelling feature and the pause Time you have chosen.

French???

Hello FlickType team.. (sorry if you got this twice, I sent this message before being subscribed to the forum.

I love this app. It reminds me off flexy at its beginning. Tell me, what can I do to persuade you to include French language in this app?

Re: 3 finger single tap

 

Hi Dave,

You need to touch and hold with three fingers, rather than tap. We’ll make it clearer in the instructions, thank you for the question.

Let us know how you are finding typing with FlickType!

Kosta

Re: System-wide FlickType keyboard now available on the App Store!

Brandon Cross
 

Yes, I as well miss that flick left and hold gesture. Especially when
deleting numbers and symbols, because even if you have typed words past
them, those still count as one word each. so, '50%' is 3 words.

Swiping through controls/elements in Messages

David Matters <morzorak@...>
 

Hello All:
I have noticed the following behavior:
When in Messages, and FlickType is the active keyboard, but not currently open or on the screen, much like when you first enter into a thread, I am unable to swipe off/from the text field to other elements, such as the record audio button or the messaging apps button. I have to tap on say a message before I am able to then swipe through elements on the screen. I am able to use the rotor set to vertical navigation to swipe up and off the text field. Once anywhere else on the screen I am able to swipe just fine except for the bottom row of elements (buttons and the text field). If I then set another keyboard as the active keyboard this behavior corrects itself until I go back to the FlickType keyboard. I have not tried/tested this in other apps so not sure if it is only with the Messaging app.

I am running iOS on an 8+ w/ 11.4

Any thoughts?
Dave ...

Re: 3 finger single tap

Eileen Misrahi
 

Hi Dave,

The way you use this gesture is to take 3 fingers and tap once and hold it there there. You need to keep the fingers on the screen to hear all the text. Once you take your fingers off the screen, it will stop reading. HTH.

Best,
Eileen

Re: System-wide FlickType keyboard now available on the App Store!

Dave Speck
 

Hello,
Happy to see the new release on the app store. A friend is trying it on an iPhone six and while using the explore gesture to locate the dismiss button or the next keyboard button, ends up in the control center more often than not. Is this a known issue regarding that model? Do you have any suggestions which I may forward? I don't seem to have this issue on the eight plus.
Thank you.

Re: System-wide FlickType keyboard now available on the App Store!

 

Hi Dave,

Thanks for reaching out on behalf of your friend. The control center is accessed by pulling up from the bottom of the screen, typically this also requires that you touch down at the very bottom of the screen before dragging up. My suggestion is that your friend starts exploring from higher on the screen and work their way down towards the bottom rather than starting low initially and dragging upwards.

Does this make sense? If they're still having trouble please let us know what iOS version they are on, as well as which FlickType version.

Thanks, again!
Ashley

Re: System-wide FlickType keyboard now available on the App Store!

Brandon Cross
 

I think the reason this is happening is because with voiceover on, the
normal way to access the control center, as Ashley properly explained, has
been altered. For voiceover users, what you do is explore to the top and
touch one of the items in the status bar, then lift and swipe up with three
fingers. For non-voiceover users, the gesture is to simpy swipe up with one
finger from the bottom. My theory is that FlickType is designating a region
for VoiceOver not to interfere with, such as how playing the instruments in
Garage band is possible even with voiceover on.
