Has whatever was causing that ben fixed? If not, seems that is just going to end up with long wait times after some time. Removing all entries from the dictionary is also suboptomal for people who routinely type words that flicktype doesn't recognize.

Wow! I cleared my FlickType dictionary and the loading time of the app went from 28 seconds to instantly!

Hello,
Yes, the watch app is working well on the FlickType for iPhone app. It is running as well as it always has.

However the FlickType Notes which is basically designed specifically for the watch has some voiceover accessibility but still needs work. I sent Kosta gsome feedback.

Hello Kosta,
I am sending feedback for both Fliktype for iPhone and the Fliktype Notes app for Apple Watch back to you via the TestFlight app.

Does this work for you? If not, what would be your preferred feedback route?

Hi Kosta and everyone.
May I wish you, Ashley and your family good health and happiness in 2020.  Thank you for continuing to develop this wonderful app.
In the latest App Store update, the language option between English and Spanish appears to be working seamlessly but this is not the case in today's Beta version.

I hope that this option continues in the future as it is, for me, one of the most crucial components.

Hello,
I just searched for flicktype on an iPhone which has never had it installed.
The search turned up FlickType for iPhone, iPad, etc, for $2.99 and FlickType notes for $2.99 

Those who subscribed to flicktype in the past will be able to use the updated FlickType at no cost.
Those who did not subscribe will have to do a one time purchase of $2.99.

Hello Jessica,

The reason Kosta has separated the watch app from FlickType, is to generate much more revenue.

At the current time the watch app is not accessible and Kosta is going for a main stream demographic. He is hoping that if he can get enough sighted  people to buy the watch app, it will generate enough revenue to keep Fliktype alive.

He has said that eventually, probably in the very near future, that the FlickType Notes app will be accessible.

Personally I think this is a fantastic idea, because of this idea, the subscription to FlickType has been canceled, and if you were a subscriber before, you now get Fliktype for free!

Benny,

 

I would caution you not to cancel your FlickType subscription until you've installed the upgrade and are happy with it. The following steps can be followed to cancel a subscription and are written based on an iPhone 8 running iOS 13.3:

 

1.   Place focus on the Apps Store home screen button or icon and single finger triple tap.

2.   A context menu will open and swipe until Updates has focus and double tap.

3.   On the screen that opens, swipe right until Subscriptions is announced and double tap.

4.   Swipe until your FlickType subscription has focus. Voiceover should announce your subscription period and next billing date. Double tap to open the subscription.

5.   You will be placed on an edit subscription screen and the last item on that screen is a Cancel subscription button which you should double tap to cancel it.

 

Good luck.

Hi Alan,

 

To clarify, existing subscribers will also be able to keep using the app with no additional cost. In fact, once you update, you should be able to cancel your subscription and still be able to use the app forever.

 

This last update brings no significant changes to the way the keyboard works in all text fields, so won't be missing anything if you don't update now. I have removed a lot of bloat from it though, so if anything, some things should be better.

Hi List,

 

I depend on FlickType heavily for input into my iPhone and since it's working fine for me, I'm looking for comments from those who installed yesterday's upgrade as to how it works before I upgrade.

 

Also, Kosta wrote the following in a recent post:

 

"I should also note that we have dropped the subscription and the app is now $2.99. Additionally, anyone who previously downloaded the app and didn't purchase a subscription should now be able to get the app for free"

 

I'm assuming this means that those of us who have been subscribed to the FlickType app will also be able to get the latest upgrade for free. It would seem to me that since my subscription entitled me to use the product during the subscription period, I need to pay the $2.99 now in order to purchase the latest version. This just makes economic sense so please no flamers for my raising this question.

 

Perhaps Kosta can clarify the new app purchase for previous subscribers and also ensure that it will work as the previous version did in all text fields.

 

Thanks in advance to anyone who can share their experience with the FlickType upgrade. And I don't have an Apple watch so I'm not interested in the separation of it into a standalone app.

Re: Signing up for the beta again.

Tony Hernandez
 

Hi Jessica,


Kosta stated in an earlier email that the Watch companion app will return in the future, so there's not really a separation; it's just temporarily unavailable. The FlickType Notes app appears to be a more mainstream project that Kosta has stated will be fully accessible with Voiceover. For people with normal sight, FlickType Notes appears to be well received, if the reviews are anything to go by.
