Re: Two finger tap in system keyboard

Field, S. (Scott)
 

Hi
Using Fleksy I always type with two hands, but cannot do so with FlickType because I always get the "Letters uppercase" notification half way through words.
Perhaps the two finger tap could change to a two finger swipe up for case change?
If not, then an option in the settings to disable two finger case change would allow those with iPhone 6s or later to be able to turn it off and just use hard press instead.

I type very rapidly with two thumbs in landscape mode. I have never had this problem.

Re: Two finger tap in system keyboard

Hello,

I am having a issue which I am unsure had been reported previously. When I am typing in a text or email message. I start typing and if I am flicking down to make a correction or to choose a different word, sometimes the ability to type goes away. What I mean is that I have to double tap in the edit field to get the keyboard back. I hope this makes sense.

I would hate to see a change in the 2 finger tap that changes the letter case and brings up additional symbols. This gesture blends in well with the 2 finger double tap that changes the letters to numbers and back to letters. Again, just my opinion. Thanks.

Re: half screen option

that scares me.
Fleksy started with a fullscreen keyboard, just like Flicktype is currently, And that was perfect. Then they went half  size, and that's precisely what made me move away from it. If you can Be smarter than Fleksy then go on.

Re: half screen option

Hi

Think of it this way. Currently, using FlickType, you cannot copy, paste, or edit text. Isn’t that part of typing as well? In other words, you can’t really get the full typing experience unless they do I half screen option.

Re: half screen option

 

Maybe after they have a half screen option they can add something in Settings where the user can select which experience they want, full screen or half screen.

As for are the Flicktype developers smarter than the Fleksy developers that is a difficult question since Kosta was part of the original Fleksy team, but that was years ago and things change and I think right now Flicktype works better than Fleksy ever did.

Sieghard

Re: half screen option

 

Hi everyone,

We are working on implementing a half screen option, so you can interact with the app, but the primary way of using the app will be full screen.

Thanks for the feedback!

Re: Customizing emojis

 

Hi JPR,

The emojis currently available are a shortcut, which is why there is a limited amount, we will be implementing a full emoji keyboard.

Thanks!

an alternative to half size keyboard

Jean-Philippe Rykiel
 

Hi all,

half size keyboard might be good, I don't know how it will feel like, but in the meantime I just had an idea that I wanted to share with you.

For the moment, while flick type keyboard is on, the rotter gesture does not do anything. Why not use this rotter to temporarily dismiss the keyboard and go back to iOS edit features, until you touch the keyboard zone again?

What do you say?

Best regards,

JPR

Re: an alternative to half size keyboard

the whole screen is the keyboard zone though, that's the problem. I also would like this half screen option.

Re: an alternative to half size keyboard

Peter Torpey
 

I personally can't wait until the half size keyboard is available.  This would hopefully work more like the standard keyboard in that one could easily view one's text entry, navigate the cursor for editing and making corrections, etc.  As noted on this forum, there are several circumstances where dismissing the keyboard leads to a result in which the user must go back to the standard keyboard.  I'm thinking of the situation of trying to use auto-correct when sending e-mail or text messages.

This will be a welcome addition and obviate the need for switching keyboards.

Re: an alternative to half size keyboard

 

I am not sure why the current gesture is considered to be problematic, seems to work for me.

Re: an alternative to half size keyboard

Chuck Dean
 


Hello, 
 As I understand it, the half screen keyboard poses many problems and the final product may not be the total solution you are waiting for. 
 Those of us who use fleksy understand typing in a text field makes VoiceOver have delays and stuttering speech, which is very annoying. So, the current thought is there will be a half screen keyboard useful to interact with the various areas of the screen, but you will want to change to the full screen keyboard to enter the bulk of your text. This seems to be the best compromise that Kosta can implement. 
 
 There has been a Couple of attempts released to the alpha group which didn't perform as expected. Kosta is a steely eyed app developer, so whatever he finally releases will be the very best app possible. 
 
 I was one of the big supporters of the half screen keyboard, at first, but since I have been using the current version of FlickType I really have no problems switching between the full screen FlickType keyboard and the iOS keyboard. 
 In my opinion the half screen keyboard will be nice., But not necessary.
