If you had another device using the same AppleID, when auto download is on in iTunes, apps are auto-synced when downloaded. If I download on iPhone... next time I go to iPad the app will be there.

Actually, the removal of apps from iTunes backups was introduced with iTunes
12.7 which was released last September so it's been about a year that this
was the case.

I'm not following your comment that having an app on another device with
automatic download might enable you to get it to a new iPhone. As far as I'm
aware, there is no device-to-device transfer of apps in the iOS world. If
the app isn't in the Apps Store, it isn't getting on a new device.

Hello,
This is definitely a new thing from Apple. Where it must be in the app
store. If you have it on another device, automatic download might be an
option to get back on the new phone.

I can only comment on my own personal experience when purchasing a new
iPhone a little less than a month ago and restoring my backup to it. I had
an app named Snippets that I used regularly to transfer text between
computer and iPhone. However, Snippets was no longer in the Apps Store when
I restored my backup to my new iPhone and therefore, it was no longer on my
iPhone after the restore. I'm pretty sure apps are not included in what is
backed up to either iCloud or a local computer so I'm not sure how their
being tied to a particular Apple ID enters into the restoration. If the app
isn't available in the Apps Store when one does their restore, there is no
source from which to restore it. So, it seems your removing FlickType
Classic from the Apps Store makes it no longer available to anyone restoring
a backup to a new device.

Hi Alan,

As far as we know apps are tied to a specific Apple ID, and if a phone is
restored from an iCloud backup, then all previous app downloads should be
restored as well. If you're aware of a new change will you please share a
link so I can get up to speed?


Thanks!

That really sucks especially if you used FlickType Classic as often as I do. I think the ball was dropped with the timing of the removal of FlickType Classic from the Apps Store and I think they should get it back there as soon as possible.

Hi Alan, you are correct.

I restored my new iPhone 8 today, and Flicktype Classic, is no longer there.

If it is not in the app store, then it can't get it.

I also had the beta version of Flicktype Classic, and that is no longer in the testflight app.

Re: Has FlickType classic been removed from the app store?

Chuck Dean
 

Has anyone tried flicktype Classic on ios 12? I know that maintaining flicktype Classic is very hard because it uses the old Fleksy code as a base.
I think Kosta would like to only have one app to have to maintain, and since he built FlickType from scratch, he will have an easier time with it.

I think you can use the demo version in the container app just like flicktype Classic.

Thanks for that explanation. I've only ever had one device at a time so I

Re: Has FlickType classic been removed from the app store?

Eileen Misrahi
 

Hello All,

I am confused. When FlickType first came out, I was not in the beta program, so I am assuming I was using the classic version. Now that I have the beta version, it overrode the classic version. Do I still have the classic version in my app list that are not on my iPhone list? Just curious.

Thanks.

After app update, app refuses to load

Harry Bell
 

On 2018 iPad running iOS 12, I’ve just installed tge FlickType update, restarted iPad and tge app now launches a blank page and a message pop over saying no secure connection can be made to server. It offers option to go to safari but if I try that, safari tells me the page cannot be opened.

Re: After app update, app refuses to load

 

Hi Harry,

What build of FlickType are you running? Please make sure you have internet connectivity when launching the container app, and try restarting your device to see if that helps.

Hi, 
 I am facing problem when using me messaging app in iPhone SE. Typed text is lost when I close flick type app. Please see attached video. Sent from my iPhone

Version 3.0 with half screen mode is out!

 

Please read the following release notes and tell us what you think of this update at hello@flicktype.groups.io. All feedback is welcome, smile!

What's new:
- Half screen mode now works with VoiceOver. Also introducing an additional "Minimal" keyboard height option.
- During a long press, the height of the top QWERTY row will now be the same as the bottom two rows. Exploring the area above the keyboard will read back your text. Tell us what you think!
- Some low-vision users asked us for a splash of color. The default black background can now be a simple vertical gradient with a color of your choice.
- If you are accidentally invoking the shift function when typing fast with multiple fingers, you can now disable it using the new "Multi-finger tap gestures" setting.

Known issues:
- If you are getting any incorrect announcements, please try setting the iOS VoiceOver "Typing Feedback" for software keyboards to "Characters", or to "Nothing".
- There is a known issue with the "Minimal" option not working correctly inside the container app on the iPhone X.
- Manually typing a word after a new line might insert a space after the first character.
- The keyboard might not work properly on iPad when iOS Zoom is enabled.

Please tell us what works for you and what doesn't, so we can make FlickType better for you!

Happy typing! ☺️

Re: Text lost

 

Thank you Ashwin. Please try updating to the new 3.0 version that was just released earlier today and let us know if the problem persists.

I had to try deleting the FlickType app then installing so I have tge latest version. Yes, I am on internet and yes, I have restarted my iPad several times. I pay a monthly subscription but when I now tried to use tge FlickType keyboard to compose this reply, all I got was a message saying my subscription is not active. But if I go to the Upgrade tab in the container app, all. Get is that blank screen with popover saying no secure connection could be made to the server. So, for tge moment, FlickType is completely unusable on this 2018 iPad running GM of iOS 12 beta. Any suggestions welcome!
