Re: Flicktype account is not active

Hi,
What happens if the upgrade isn’t active?

If this happens to me, the app still says, “active.”

If its not active, can you please indicate that?

Thanks,
Jessica

Hi Dave,

Thanks for your message. I'm assuming you're on the App Store version of the app? If so, you can go to the upgrade tab to upgrade to the 7-day free trial and test out the app as a system-wide keyboard. Once you hit upgrade the account will be active and you will need to follow the instructions in the upgrade tab to enable the keyboard system-wide.

Thanks,
Ashley

Hi,
In flicktype, there is a new “reduce height” setting, which should prevent the crashes.

Try that, & let us know what happens.

Thanks,
Jessica

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the message. We've discovered a bug on WhatsApp's side but until they address it we have added a workaround in our settings. You can access the workaround by going to the FlickType app, settings tab, scroll down to the other tab where you'll find a toggle for the "reduced height" setting. Please enable the reduced height toggle, and if you want more information you will find that just below the reduced height setting.

Please let us know if we can help with anything else!

Great, Gera! Not everyone has experienced it luckily, but many have in particularly active threads, not in every thread, so if it does end up happening to you we have the workaround ready to go. Wink.

Warmly,
Ashley

Re: Symbols

 

Hi Dave,

To go from letters to numbers and symbols you can do a two-finger double tap, and then to alternate between the numbers/symbols and extended symbols it's a 2-finger single tap. A 2-finger double tap will get you back to letters, and a 2-finger single tap will alternate between upper and lower case letters.

Please let us know if you have any other questions,
Ashley

What's new:
- Reading back your text with a 3-finger press can now also be done with 2-fingers. This should also allow Accessibility Zoom users to utilize this feature, which previously conflicted with the zoom gestures.
- Words will now also be spelled after moving the cursor.
- Added voice feedback when VoiceOver is disabled.
- Add setting to toggle "Voice Feedback", enabled by default.
- Fixed dictionary capitalization issue for automatically added words. Thanks, David!
- Gesture bugfixes.

Previously:
- You can now use your existing iOS text replacement shortcuts with FlickType. Configure text replacements from iOS Settings, General, Keyboard, Text Replacement. If you tap-type the shortcut, it will automatically be expanded into its phrase. If you type it accurately by touch-typing each letter, you'll need to flick down to expand it. Replacement shortcuts can only contain letters, but expanded phrases can be anything, including numbers, symbols, spaces, and even emoji. Be creative, smile! Please note: the replacements don't work inside the container app due to iOS limitations.

Thank you for supporting FlickType, and please tell your friends if you are enjoying it!
Warmly,

So I'm noticing some issues. Namely, that in messages, the send record audio textbox photos and messaging apps area can no longer be accessed when the keyboard is collapsed. Swiping left or right results in a bonk sound. M moreover, the specific box and buttons cannot be reached..

In mail app, there is issue where typing first few letters of email and collapsing the keyboard doesn't result in a list of previously used emails to pop up.

Re: Sign in required with latest update from the app store

 
Edited

Hi Daniel,

All I've found online are old articles about the problem. The typical instructions were available, restart your device and if it's still happening, sign out of the App Store and sign back in. You can do this in settings, click your name at the top of the list, iTunes and App Store, click your Apple ID and sign out. If this doesn't work they recommend you try to change your password. I want to clarify based on your last message: when you get the standard Apple ID sign-in form, this is not the app asking for your Apple ID sign in, this is coming directly from Apple.

Good luck!
Ashley

Re: Please cancel my monthly subscription?

 

Hi Juanita,

You may cancel your subscription at any time, as this is something that Apple gives you full control over. You go to settings, tap your Apple Id at the top of the page, iTunes and App Store, tap your Apple ID and click view, scroll down to subscriptions to manage any subscriptions you buy from the App Store.

Thanks!
Ashley

Hello to the FlickType team
May I please ask to terminate my monthly subscription? I tried both the free and paid version, but sadly discovered FlickType is not for me. Hear by I'm not saying FlickType is unusable. It is actually one brilliant app and a lot of blind folk find it a huge improvement to the built-in IOS keyboards. It is just me who still prefers my bluetooth keyboard above all other choices.
Regards and all the best

Re: Sign in required with latest update from the app store

Interesting. Ashley and all, when any app asks for Apple ID sign in, is there a default place where I can go to check and verify that I do need to sign in or not?

Hope that makes sense. Using latest IOS 11 version.

Hi Daniel,

Yesterday I got a sign in prompt when I tried to listen to a song on Apple Music, which seems somewhat related to your random sign in prompt. I signed in and everything else seemed normal.

Re: Improved Multiple Language Support

 

Hi Roberto,

Thank you for the message. We're going to be making some changes in an upcoming update that should be a workaround for the system language vs. the language you're typing with. As for the other request related to Spanish and toggling between languages, these updates will be coming a little further down the pipeline, but something we will be working on prior to adding any additional languages. We will also be making other improvements to Spanish in general.

Thanks for the recommendations,
Ashley
