Email subject repeat.
Hi all,
I would like to see a toggle to enable the user to turn off the email subject to be repeated in the email body.
If I remember correctly, this one of the first changes in the original Fleksy app.

Something I would like to see on FlickType.

Hello all,
I would like to see an easier way to access the export type button. Perhaps a hard press on iphones that have 3D touch.

Re: New release: An entirely new sound treatment has arrived with build 29!

Shameless FanGirl
 

Good evening,

I appreciate the new sounds, because, as I’ve said before, they are a much-needed break with what had been there since the beginning. I appreciate the new typing sound (the one now present in landscape mode) because it’s easy to hear when I’m working in louder environments such as in transit, in the midst of a lot of people, etc. I am experiencing something interesting though with the usage of lightning earphones. This isn’t exclusively a flicktype issue, but something which sometimes happens with sounds generally, and I’m curious as to whether or not anyone else has seen, or is seeing this. When I use my phone and flicktype via the handset only, (no earphones) the sounds are very pronounced. Yet when I plug in my EarPods, they’re muted almost to the point of inaudibility. I have auto-ducking turned off, so yeah, this is annoying to me, because I am a geek, and am having fun with the new sound options...just wish I could enjoy them privately. Lol

Thanks guys for a great app, and for, as I once said before, returning me to my texting input roots

Angie

I'm also extremely grateful for the amount of enthusiasm and responsiveness from the developers, I truly appreciate your passion for the app and user support. Having said that, I have a few general thoughts:

1. I love the new sounds. However, can there be a different sound other than the keyboard clicks for when a two finger swipe is performed to access the menu? Not a huge deal, but just food for thought.
2. Speaking of the menu, is the tap an hold gesture still supposed to exist to bring up the menu? I love the swipe up, but feel like it could get annoying for new users who may be manually trying to enter something and go outside the range of the keyboard. I only discovered this gesture by accident.
3. I like the announcement of contractions, but I wish only the's was announced because of VoiceOver's default lack of pronouncing it. I think words like I'm or aren't would be better pronounced normally, as before. Not sure if this makes sense? If I need to clarify please let me know. :)

On another note, like others have mentioned, it took me a while to get groups. Io to cooperate and allow me to reply /post. I finally got it but not initially user friendly. I'll reply to that respective topic tomorrow. Thank you again for bringing this back and bringing a much needed typing revamp to iOS.

Re: Suggestion for accessing main screen of app and reducing verbosity with VoiceOver

George Cham
 

Hi David an all.
I agree with the welcome feedback.
It copy and clear is turned on, then there is no need to have copy and clear on exit.
I also would like to see, when the menu is brought up, at the bottom of the menu, it instead of back, it should say, continue typing.

Kind regards,

George Cham

Subject: [flicktype] Suggestion for accessing main screen of app and reducing verbosity with VoiceOver

Hi all,

I’m wondering in order to reduce verbosity, that after doing a two finger flick up from the keyboard to access the main app screen, we had “main menu” or “menu” rather than “welcome to FlickType. Happy typing”.

Given how much I use the app and like it, the welcome.. is starting to get a bit annoying smile.

When I use headphones with my iPod touch, I made sure to turn up the sound volume for sounds and notifications to 100to make sure sounds were being heard.

I typing this message via FlickType while a brown noise sleep machine is in the background in my headphones, and I am not doing too bad with typing!

Hi Maria,

Have you tried to shake the phone and tap "undo"? This is a quick way to undo all the text you've entered.

Re: Typing with flicktype

 

Thanks, George. I'd say this is the same for the default iOS keyboard as
well since the keys are more spread out across the iPad screen, especially
for larger iPads. We'll explore whether there's anything we can do to
improve the experience in the future as FlickType was designed for iPhone,
it just happens to work quite well for iPads as well.

Thanks for the feedback!

It also works great with my ipod touch 6 as well, the "shake to undo" thing.

Release #32: More sound improvements, quick reply links, and new settings

 

App changes follow below. Please report all your feedback by replying to this topic. Thank you for testing FlickType!

In this release:
- Settings reorganization
- Added information for some settings.
- Fixed Quick Reply links. Information in settings.
- Internal sound logic revamp. Please report latency and volume issues.
- Stereo panning for tap sound effects. Try with headphones and tell us what you think.
- Choice of tap effect.
- Choice of tap volume.
- Choice of pitch for "Spell words".
- Choice of verbosity for "Raise to read back".
- Always show "Copy & clear" menu option, even when "Copy & Clear on exit" is enabled.

Earlier changes:
- Fixed app startup freeze on iOS 10
- Lowered the pitch of the new deletion sound.
- Restored the original tap sound, but a bit louder than before. New tap sound is used in landscape, tell us what you think!
- Use lower pitch when spelling words, rather than higher. Thanks Daniel!
- Don't use higher pitch to announce tokens with numbers or symbols.
- Fixed double announcement of typed text when invoking the menu.
- Added back missing voice feedback when VoiceOver is disabled. Note: having VoiceOver disabled is generally unsupported. For best results, please ensure VoiceOver is enabled when using FlickType. You can set your accessibility shortcut to include toggling VoiceOver when you triple-click the device button. Reading of punctuation is known to be buggy when VoiceOver is disabled.
- Complete revamp of of all sound effects: taps, deletions, errors, and more. Tell us what you think!
- Deletion announcements will now always use a lower pitch, and will not use the word "Deleted". You can turn that back on from the settings.
- Updated deletion sound effect, hopefully this is less intrusive. Thanks Serina! You can now also turn it off from the settings.
- Words with numbers and symbols will now be announced correctly and in detail, even if they contain no letters.
- Apostrophes in contractions like "it's" will be announced. Thanks Alan!
- Capital letter announcements will use the shorthand "cap" prefix instead of the full word "capital".
- Fixed pronunciation of colon symbol. Thanks Yana!
- Fixed wrong iPhone X keyboard positioning when in landscape mode.
- Added a few more words to the dictionary.

Please report all your feedback by replying to this topic. Thank you for testing FlickType!

Kosta & Ashley

PS: Don't forget to invite your friends! The more testers we have, the faster we can improve the app.

Hi, just install the latest update on both iPad and iPhone eight. The app is crashing on start-up

Thanks for the report George. What version of iOS are you on? And if it's not to much trouble, can you delete the app and re-install from TestFlight?
- Kosta

Re: Release #32: More sound improvements, quick reply links, and new settings

George Cham
 

Done that, Flick Type is now working properly after installing from TestFlight. But it looks like there's only one feel for phone number and email address.

Kind Regards,

Correct. You can now specify either a phone or an email for the reply link. I think most people using the reply links will be adding their phone number there.

I am not getting any crashing issues.
