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.

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.

You need to fix the subject line, because the subject line is what I want in the body. I'm running ios 11. 4.

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

 

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,

Hi, I am a new member here. :) I’ve just downloaded the Flicktype beta. With the original Fleksy, you could send text directly to Facebook, Twitter, or via text to anyone in your contacts, but I cannot work out how to do this now. Can anyone tell me if this is still possible, and how to do it?

FlickType version 32

Michael Maslo
 

Hello,



Here are my findings on version 32. First I am using an iPhone x. I am running version ios 11 4. I am having the following major and I want to stipulate major issues. First, I had to delete the keyboard after updating because it crashed. After I deleted the keyboard I installed it again.



When I started to started to type, there was a latency issue immediately. I would type a word and majority of the time the word would not show up at all. If I continued to flick a word would eventually show up. However, if I had typed a three letter word, instead of that three letter word appearing a five letter word was suggested. When I would flick up and down what there was major latency issued what there also. When trying to delete a word I would sometimes have to flick at least eight times before that one word would be deleted. I like the sounds but the latency issues for me make it unuseable for me.

Version 32 crashing solved!

Harry Bell
 

I had crashing with version 32 on iPhone 7 Plus with iOS 11.3 but I followed the advice to delete the app and reinstall from TestFlight and now all is well. I simply had to adjust the Settings to suit me and I was back in business! Great app!

Yes, I like this idea a lot.
Hope the developers see this.

Re: Comments on version 0.1-32

Harry Bell <ubupanoramix@...>
 

I had assumed that if the keyboard was visible, then I had to tap within that area, whereas with the invisible keyboard I could tap as if the keyboard had whatever dimensions I imagined it to have. But following Alan posting, I experimented and found that even with a visible keyboard, I could just type wherever I wanted on the screen. I still prefer the invisible keyboard as it is less distracting for me with my little remaining sight.

FlickType version 32

Michael Maslo
 

Hi list,



Ok I have installed the new version of this keyboard and it is working better. I like the sounds and it is more responsive. Is there a way to build in emote support? Also is what there a way to add our own words to the dictionary? Lastly, I agree about the instructions should have a toggle in the settings.
