Re: Upcoming pricing changes

Hello everyone, I have a question. Does that mean I should cancel my subscription? When should I do so? that way I won’t have any unwanted charges. What I mean is I don’t want to pay if I don’t have to. I hope you know what I mean.

Thank you,
Lexi

Hi,
Can you please tell me what's going on with Flicktype?
Is it still being actively developed?

I see that the app store version hasn'tbeen updated in over a year, and this concerns me greatly.
I love the app, and would hate to see it go.

Dear FlickType friends,

We have had numerous rejections of FlickType by Apple over the last few months, most often due to the uncommon nature of our app being a keyboard for VoiceOver users. Usually the reviewer is confused by the way they need to operate the keyboard with VoiceOver, and it takes some back-and-forth before they eventually reverse their devision and let us release our updates to the App Store.

This past weekend, our update got rejected because, quote, "the app uses auto-renewing subscriptions, but it is not an appropriate use of the service". This has happened before, and after our detailed explanation and position they agreed to reverse their decision at the time. It would seem that they have now either changed their policy, or this is a different person reviewing the app and for some reason they don't have the context of our earlier conversations. This is likely to happen again in the future, even if we succeed in getting the current update through.

Either way, App Store rejections and appeals to the App Review Board take a long time to resolve, time that we can better spend developing the app itself. We have therefore decided to drop the subscription model moving forward, and instead introduce a one-off purchasing fee for the system-wide keyboard, so that we at least eliminate one of the potential causes of App Store rejections and delays in the future.

We have not yet decided on the pricing, and in fact we'd love to hear some of your ideas on that. We are still hoping that we can find a price that is both reasonable for users, and also sustainable for us as a business. We also wanted to share this background information with you, and for you to be aware of the upcoming pricing changes.

Again, we welcome your thoughts in the matter, and we are thankful for all your support so far.

Warmly,
Kosta

Re: iOS 13.3 and flicktype across the system

 

Luke,

That's great that Gordon's advice worked for you. Chuck's advice worked for
me with the Container app. This is why I spend so much time on email lists
because crowd sourcing has provided me with numerous answers through the
years.

Hi Alan. Yes, answered earlier in the thread in my case--I turned everything
off there and back on, and also uninstalled the keyboard and installed it
again.

But Gordon's solution has worked in my case, though apparently not for
Paula.
They have changed the multi-way toggle of the next keyboard key in iOS 13,
at least on some devices, so that you have to double tap and slide in order
for it to work.

Hi Luke,


Kosta and Ashley do monitor this list, but they've had a rough go of it in the last year or two, including hospitalization-level illness. FlickType development has unfortunately been understandably slow because of it, since it's a two-person team keeping up with a very demanding set of circumstances. I hope FlickType development under Kosta and Ashley gets back to its previous pace because it will mean that their personal difficulties have improved or resolved.

Not the least of which is that it seems impossible to delete the last word alphabetically.
Also the no edit with select all for bulk deletion, and the rogue "insert" button for one of the words that shows up while swiping but not while dragging.

Given that this app is on a subscription model, there really should be some active development, or some way of contacting support directly with feature suggestions or serious problems.
The last update was one year ago according to the AppStore, which is not comforting.

Thank you Gordon. That was the ticket! For me, at least.

Double tapping and sliding up gets some extra keyboard options, such as left handed keyboard, and Flicktype.

Thanks again.

However on the 7, I have to double tap and hold the next keyboard button and slide my finger up the side of the screen. As I make my way to the top it will announce different keyboards. So you just release your finger when you're on the one you want. So you want to try double tapping and holding the next keyboard button and sliding up to get the one you want to be active. But the next keyboard button is not there on the 7 when flick type is active. So I do a slide up to have flick type advance to the next keyboard.

Hello again,

I just timed how long it took to open the FlickType container app. Once I double tapped on the icon, I got no response for 26 seconds.

 

This is because I have an extremely large dictionary. About every six months I clear out my dictionary and the loading time is much reduced.

Hello everyone,
I have sent a notice to Kosta to a direct channel I have with him. I will see if he responds.

I haven’t heard anything from Kosta in months, I’m not sure what’s happening but I know he was having some great difficulties with his family earlier this year. I am hoping that he will still be supporting Fliktype, and hope that he will get back to us soon.

I have had exactly the same problem, tried everything to sort it out, but I can’t seem to, so have given up with FlickType, sadly.

After update to iOS 13.3, Flicktype still doesn't work system wide.

I removed and re-installed the app, and still it does not work.

I can change keyboard to imoji. After that, the next keyboard button says "Flicktype", but when I tap it, it just goes back to the English keyboard.
In fact, it still announces "next keyboard: flicktype", but if I actually read the button, it isn't Flicktype, but either Imoji or English.

And yet some of you are having success on iOS 13.3? What are your settings?

When you have a keyboard open, find the button on the bottom left of the screen to switch keyboards. Double tap this button and hold it. Then slowly slide your finger up the side of the screen and see if if begins to give you additional keyboards you can choose from. If you hear flick type, release your finger and you'll have it. To switch keyboards when flick type is active, slide up with one finger like you would slide down to close the keyboard. It will switch you to the next keyboard.

Thanks Chuck, but that was the first thing I tried when I noticed it not working.
Have done so at every new trouble shooting step since then, just in case.
It definitely claims to see my annual subscription, and all of the keyboard options under settings are still there, but the keyboard never appears.

Hello Luke,
Did you try to restore your purchase in the container app?
After I updated to one of the 13.1 build, for some reason Fliktype didn’t recognize that I had purchased the subscription.
I went into the container app, double tap an upgrade, and in the upper right hand corner is a button that says restore. When it came back, it said that I
had already subscribe to the app, but then the app worked.
Try it, it may work.
