Re: mad about removal of watch app

Chuck Dean
 

Hello,
Here is my guess, and this is only a guess!
Perhaps Kosta has developed the Fliktype app for the watch to become a main stream app that sighted people will buy in order to have a keyboard on your watch. Therefore that money that comes in could be used to finance the Fliktype app that we, the blind and visually impaired community use. Perhaps in the future we will not  to see a subscription, or perhaps we will see a one time purchase price, if the Fliktype notes app for the watch takes off and is able to   Support Fliktype
 But, let’s not jump to any conclusions, be patient, and see what happens. Remember this update just came out yesterday, there may be more coming in the very near future.

That may be why they separated the watch companion app. It looks like there's still some work that needs to be done on it at first blush, but I have faith in Kosta and Ashley, and anyway it's only $3. Perhaps they will have some other streams of income like other apps with a subscription model to try and help offset the loss of income from Apple's ridiculous objections to the implementation of FlickType's subscription functionality. It burns me up that they've had to be so rigid about that at the App Store's ivory tower of policy.

Hi All,

Thanks Harry for reporting on what you have found so far with FlickType using the watch. I too have a Series 4 and will hold off on the purchase until I hear further feedback from the list.

Again, thanks.

Hi Jessica,
What I should have said, is the upgrade button has been removed from the app.
I never bought a subscription, as I was using beta version.

I’ve discovered that the Flicktype watch app works if voiceover is turned off bit I can’t get it to work when voiceover is turned on. And I need VoiceOver! Can they have just made it for sighted folk? Or is there some setting I’ve not discovered?

Feedback, Punctuations and more

Jean-Philippe Rykiel
 

Dear FlickType Team,
Using an iPhone seven with Latest French iOS, I notice that when flicking right after typing, it happens that the word is not correctly Spoken, even though it is correctly typed. Speech misses the first letter of the word,. And for example the, may be Pronounpronounced as he.A stranger thing I noticed Without being able to reproduce itThe sequence which Leeds to this behavior, is that sometimes when deleting a word, FlickType will say Beginning of Document, Even though I. Am in the middle of it.
Oh, one last thing I I. Forgot, Punctuations are no longer pronounced when flicking thropunctuations are no longer pronounced when flicking through them.
That’s it for now.
All the best,JPR

Clearing up the dictionary

Daniel McGee
 

Hi all, in the FlickType container app, where the dictionary is located. Besides manually deleting each entry one by one, is there anyway to clear all the words at once?

Since the beta has expired, which had a: clear all button in the dictionary tag, are there any work arounds for cleanup with the app store version.

Regards

Daniel
