Re: UPDATING FLICKTYPE BETA AND A BUG

Sameer Vasta
 

Hi Ashley and Jessica

Thanks for replying to me.

When I enter testflight, I am not presented with an update option (the
"open button" is there though). How do I get to update? And more
importantly, how do I update to Flicktype beta version 142 (I am
currently on Flicktype beta 137).

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Regards

Sameer

Hi Sameer,

Jessica is correct about updating. For shortcuts, we do plan to add this
functionality soon but as of now, we have not added text replacements.

Please let us know if you have any other questions,

That’s just my opinion and take it whatever it’s worth but I’ve have seen too many apps that got ruined because they got over complicated with stuff that was way beyond what they were designed to do.

Hi everyone,

As we further develop the app we will be adding more customization functionality but for now, we've found this to be the best ordering for the largest number of people.

Thanks for the recommendations!

Hello Jessica,
When you manually type a word with FlickType, it will automatically be added to the dictionary once you finish your typing session.

Hi,
speaking of word prediction, can someone tell me the easiest way, while typing, to save a word to my dictionary?

Is there a way when I am using the app to increase the reliability of text predictability? It seems that the most recent version is even less predictable than previous versions that I have tried. When I first started using it, it seemed almost totally accurate but now I am having to search for the proper word. Just wondering if there is a way of touching the screen that will increase predictability? Thanks for a great app.

Hello, there is no longer a switch to loch FlickType in landscape mode.
As long as you have the screen rotation unlocked in the control panel you can simply rotate your iPhone into landscape and FlickType will follow.

Re: Text predictability

Chuck Dean
 

Hello,
Try typing bore accurately. I found the the predictions were not as exact as I got faster with FlickType because my typing gut sloppy. Once I paid more attention to my typing accuracy, and tapped the screen closer to where the letters should be, the predictions were almost flawless.

Re: UPDATING FLICKTYPE BETA AND A BUG

Hello,
To update FlickType, open “test”flight, & find the FlickType app, & Push, “update” by double-tapping on it.

I’m sorry, but Ican’t answer your other question.

Let me know if that helps.

Thanks,
Jessica

Hi all

Firstly, How do you update Flicktype beta?

Secondly, I founda bug besides the Flicktype crashing bug. Flicktype
for some or other reason doesn't do text replacement. Just to
clarify, I assigned the letters "SA" as a shortcut for the word
South-Africa, that being the country where I come from. When I use
flicktype and type "SA", the word South-Africa doesn't appear onscreen
as I believe it should.

Any ideas on both these issues?

Kind regards

the best way for me is  to use the flick down and hold. If you have issues getting that to work use the dismiss button at the bottom right corner of the screen.

Hi there,

I've asked this question before but didn't have any feedback.

How many of you would like to have the comma , Sign appear before the period sign in the punctuation list? I seem to use comma more frequently, am I the only one? I think it would be nice to have a Choice. What do you say?

Best regards,

JPR

Yeah me too, I use a period more than a cama. and if I need a cama it's simple and quick to insert one.

I use the period symbol more than the comma symbol so that would be inconvenient for me. I don't mind swiping down to get a comma but to each his own I guess. Anyway, Kosta will have the final say so I'll support whatever he decides. This has become my favorite app.

I hope the period remains as it is. After all a double press of the spacebar using the iOS keyboard also inserts a period and nobody is asking Apple to change it to a comma. I assume that strictly from a statistical point of view the period is used more in most western languages than the comma and therefore it is what the default is.

 

In the above paragraph I ended the three sentences with a period, but didn’t need to use a single comma. In this last sentence one comma was used.

How about if they make it so that when you swipe right it brings up the punctuation based on a custom field like the emoji? Then like the emoji you can select which symbols are available and in which order. Put your period, comma, or even hashtag first as you prefer.
