When Will There Be An Update?

Shawn Krasniuk
 

Hey Ashley and Kosta. Just wanting to know how to get back on the beta and also will there be an update to fix some annoying issues with the app on iOS 15. The issues I'm experiencing are as follows?
1. Word echo is hit or miss, mostly miss though. Whenever I flick right to insert a space or punctuation or when deleting words, all Flicktype says is space.
2. Direct touch doesn't appear to be sticking again. Maybe it's an issue with iOS 15 itself but I don't experience that behavior when I use other apps that use the setting. I hope these issues get fixed soon. It's very hard to use Flicktype at the moment. Thanks.

Shawn,

Hi all,
I was wondering, am I the only one who was removed as a tester from Flicktype Beta? Or did others get removed as well? I checked the Testflight app right after the last beta expired, and have been seeing ”Tester Removed;  The developer removed you from the test program” ever since. Thought I'd check because I haven't seen it mentioned on the list.

Thank you all for confirming.

Hi,
I have  also been removed as a tester.
But I think you’ll find that when A  build expires it’s automatically removed,
And When are new builders available, it will automatically show up

kind regards,

George Cham

Re: Main menu

Open the FlickType app and there should be a settings button. There you can change your settings and tap done when you are finished.

Re: Share button

Chuck Dean
 

Yes, that will do, but the share button has many more options. I could export to messages, pages, notes, etc. Also I had quick links in my share option so I could send mail or messages to friends and family with one tap.

I brought this up to Kosta once before and he said he removed the share button by mistake, and would replace it eventually.

Re: A Few Queries

Kosta Eleftheriou
 

Hi Shawn,

A few months back I transitioned the app to free, with an in-app
purchase. The premium features automatically unlock for users who
previously bought the app, but I've had a handful of reports where
this didn't work for some reason.

Also, if you are using the beta, you will not get charged even if you
try to purchase. In fact, there should be a mention in Apple's
purchase dialog right before confirmation, that it's not going to
actually charge you.

Failing that, you can try installing from the App Store and see if
that helps, otherwise please reach out to hello@flicktype.com and I'll
send you a promo code.

Best,
Kosta

Hi Scott,
I agree with Rocco. Not experiencing that. It’s possible that your version might be corrupt, which a clean install would fix.

Since updating to IOS14 which I did when it first came out, I have been unable to use FlickType with VO on.  I have turned voice feedback on in FlickType and toggle VO off as soon as I need to type something.

I am completely at a loss as to why I experience this if others are finding it to work.  I mainly use whatsapp, Do other find FlickType with VO on to work in Whatsapp?  I can type the first word, but cannot swipe right with one finger to proceed to the next word without having to reengaging FlickType and even then the focus is all over the place.  I am using an iPhone 11.

Hi Benny. Direct Touch and Direct Touch typing are two different things. Direct Touch Typing is for the iOS keyboard and has nothing to do with Flicktype. Direct Touch is a new feature that Apple introduced in iOS 14 which allows Voiceover users to use self-voicing apps without having to turn Voiceover off. In iOS 14, Flicktype needs direct touch on to be able to work with your apps. You'll need to turn it on for every app you use Flicktype with. Hope that clears things up.

Hello Tony,

 

I think the main problem for me was going from iOS 13 to 14.4.2.  With iOS 13 I have not had the issue with having to activate direct touch typing with the rotor.  Also, when I updated to 14.4.2, slide to type was on and I think that created an issue as well.  I had to make sure full access was on for FlickType too.  In retrospect, I think it was an issue with about 3 different things.

 

full access needed to be turned on for FlickType

slide to type needed to be turned off

direct touch typing needed to be enabled on the rotor when VoiceOver and FlickType were active

These were the items that were causing me the problem.

I often see your name coming to the rescue of many people with FlickType issues, your willness to assist others is commendable. 

I have tried with swipe to type on or off, I have tried auto correct on and off.  I think I have tried pretty much every combination of the various toggles on the keyboard settings.  I know when IOS14 first came out I heard complaints about FlickType battling with IOS 14 on podcasts, Applevis and here.  Then people seemed to get it resolved and it simply doesn’t work for me.  I also find that, outside of FlickType, my VO focus jumps around.  An example of this is if I go to the app store, go to the my account section and then go down to any app that needs to be updated or that has been updated.  It will read out the app and the brief description, then I should swipe right with one finger to get to the button that either says Open or Update.  Every single time I do the swipe right to get to the button, VO flicks to the button and straight back to the app name and description.  A repeat of the swipe and it will work. This will happen every time I try this.  There are numerous such examples that only appeared once I updated to IOS 14.  Maybe there is just something wrong with my phone as the jumping around in some places makes it completely unusable as the focus will stay in one place no matter what you do.  This clearly doesn’t happen to others or else it would be listed as an emergency bug on Applevis for example.  I can only assume my FlickType troubles are related to this. 

Thanks for the help

Scott

hello Scott,

Please be sure you have a slide to type turned off. This keyboard and the Fliktype keyboard do not play well together.

Hi

Thank you for the information about the difference between direct touch and direct touch typing, this iwas new information to me.  I checked and all my apps on my phone are set to direct touch.  I found this in Settings>Accessibility>Voice Over>Rotor  Actions>Direct Touch. 

Since updating to IOS14 which I did when it first came out, I have been unable to use FlickType with VO on.  I have turned voice feedback on in FlickType and toggle VO off as soon as I need to type something.

I am completely at a loss as to why I experience this if others are finding it to work.  I mainly use whatsapp, Do other find FlickType with VO on to work in Whatsapp?  I can type the first word, but cannot swipe right with one finger to proceed to the next word without having to reengaging FlickType and even then the focus is all over the place.  I am using an iPhone 11. 

Thank you

Scott

Hi Benny. Direct Touch and Direct Touch typing are two different things. Direct Touch Typing is for the iOS keyboard and has nothing to do with Flicktype. Direct Touch is a new feature that Apple introduced in iOS 14 which allows Voiceover users to use self-voicing apps without having to turn Voiceover off. In iOS 14, Flicktype needs direct touch on to be able to work with your apps. You'll need to turn it on for every app you use Flicktype with. Hope that clears things up.

Hello Tony,

 

I think the main problem for me was going from iOS 13 to 14.4.2.  With iOS 13 I have not had the issue with having to activate direct touch typing with the rotor.  Also, when I updated to 14.4.2, slide to type was on and I think that created an issue as well.  I had to make sure full access was on for FlickType too.  In retrospect, I think it was an issue with about 3 different things.

 

full access needed to be turned on for FlickType

slide to type needed to be turned off

direct touch typing needed to be enabled on the rotor when VoiceOver and FlickType were active

These were the items that were causing me the problem.

Hi Benny,

 

When FlickType has VoiceOver focus, please try enabling Direct Touch from the rotor menu and see if that helps.

FlickType and Apple App Store

Benny Barber
 


Hello all,. I need a little assistance please. I had a little trouble getting FlickType to work after updating iOS to 14.4.2. I initially uninstalled Flicktype and reinstalled. I have Flicktype working, but I cannot get to the settings. Flicktype wants me to sign into the app store. I get caught up into a loop that requires me to purchase Flicktype for $9.98. I really don't want to do that, but if I have to, I will. Any suggestions as how to handle this? I wondered if I reinstalled the beta from Testflight, would this be a fix. Thank you for any help.
