Count me in also, but if it’s a TestFlight install, use indigocellist@... rather than this email address.

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

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.

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.

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

 

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,

George Cham

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.

Hi George, and Kosta,

I have just updated to the latest version of Flicktype, and i am using an iPhone 6s, running 11.2.6.

I am not getting any crashing issues.

Anyone experiencing a crash, you can resolve by either deleting and re-installing the latest build, or downgrading to a previous build from TestFlight. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Hi George,

some people, like those, who have never used, and are not familiar with Flicktype, or it's previous incarnation Flexi, will need the instructions on the startup screen.

In my opinion, a better solution, would be to have the option in settings, to not show the instructions on Startup.

Dave.

HI.

I think Dave’s idea is a the better solution for the reasons he stated. .

That way, if people need the instructions, they can have them at start up, but if they don’t they can go in to settings and disable the instructions so they don’t appear at start up. .

Keyboard clicks

Love it I'm able to change the volume of the sound of the keyboard clicks that's a great addition to this app

Re: instructions dialogue box on start up

I agree having that as an option to take off on your device would be great

Comments on version 0.1-32

 

Hi Ashley, Kosta, and List,



I've loaded the latest build 0.1-32 and have a few comments:



1. I very much like the addition of headings to the settings section to
distinguish the setting groups.

2. I also appreciate the addition of trailing text following certain
settings to provide more info on the setting's purpose. I think providing
this info under more setting items such as:

a. The Tap Effect choices of standard or alternative to let folks know
the difference without having to actually invoke it.

b. The Raise to Red Back setting choices of standard or verbose would be
clearer if some trailing text stating that the verbose setting reads all
punctuation was provided.

c. I'm still not sure I know what the Invisible Keyboard setting does so
some trailing text clarifying this setting would be nice.

3. I personally liked the ability to state email and phone in the quick
reply links but won't quibble about this. I did notice with this change that
my settings from before were cleared and now when I invoke either the @ or #
by pressing and holding on the keyboard to invoke the additional line of
symbols that neither of my quick reply values are presented in the flick
down choices. I assume if I enter either my email address or phone number
here that FlickType will again place it appropriately under either the @
group or # group, respectively.



Thanks so much for the continued efforts on this great app.



Happy FlickTyping,



Alan Lemly
