Re: Problem with subscription

 

Hi Taylor, and anyone else experiencing issues with their subscription.

We just released update 2.0.2 on the App Store, which may solve your issue. And if it doesn't, it now includes a User ID at the bottom of the settings which if you share with us could help us identify the cause of your subscription issue. The update will roll out slowly but you can manually search for FlickType on the App Store and tap Update to get it right now.

Thank you for your patience, and we apologize for the inconvenience!

Warmly,
Kosta

Re: Problem with subscription

 

Hi Taylor, and thank you for your support as well as your report. We apologize for the inconvenience. We have an updated version which is currently in review by Apple, and should resolve the issue once approved. You can also join our beta where the app is automatically upgraded for all testers free of charge. Just send an empty email to beta+subscribe@flicktype.groups.io to join.

Thank you, and again, we apologize for the inconvenience.

Problem with subscription

Taylor Adams <taylor290698@...>
 

Hi there. Last week when the app was updated I paid for the full access subscription. However when I attempt to use the FlickType keyboard in other apps it just says not subscribed. I have enabled the fool access to data setting, and powered off my device many times, and have even tried to cancel my subscription and removed the app, but there is no difference. Can you help?
Thank you, and thanks so much for bringing back the keyboard after all these years.


New languages

 

To everyone who has been requesting new languages:

We are definitely planning to add support for more than just English, although we won't be able to do so sooner than at least a couple of months from now due to the complexity involved with adding a new language. We appreciate your patience!

Warmly,
Kosta


Re: Welcome to the FlickType discussion group

 

Hi Sandy,

If you get the "No full access" message, please enable full access from the settings as described in the installation instructions of the Upgrade tab. If you get the "Not subscribed" message, you will need to upgrade using the Upgrade button at the top right of the same screen. If you are still having troubles for whatever reason, you can go back to TestFlight and download the latest build from there, which operates as an automatically upgraded version but will still need to have full access turned on as before.

When will Flicktype have other languages available? I have no idea how much work it takes, but I am dying to have mine, French, on board.

Hi,

This has happened to me as well.

In my case it's with an app called telegram. Specifically going into the notification center, using the rotor to navigate to view for a specific notification. Tapping reply from here gives me the keyboard, however when I swipe away the keyboard I'm back at the reply button along with muting for 1 hour etc. It's as though it takes me back one screen.

 I am aware of that. Doesn't address the problem for anyone who would like to see the text...just not in a font that can be read by anyone without vi from the other side of the room! 

Also I have had a few instances of typing lengthy emails, but when I swipe FlickType keyboard off screen, none of my text has transferred to my email!  Is this a known issue?  Reliability is paramount for many of us I’m sure.

The keyboard is great as and I am happy to pay a small monthly fee for ongoing development. 
 
 However, one thing that is driving me crazy is the lack of control over the size of the letters that appear as I type. Short words are massive! This is preventing me from using the app in meetings and public spaces, which is frustrating as I think the functionality is brilliant. 
 
 Is it feasible to introduce an option for users to select a maximum font size?

Hello, 
 There is not a half screen option at this time, however one may be possible in the near future. Unfortunately, it is not as easy as it sounds. Fleksy had problems with stuttering speech, and FlickType will probably also have problems.

Hi,

This is very valid actually.

I tend to go between flick type and braille screen input for the most part.



Now, for a few questions. I'd rather not make this into a separate thread because I might be blatantly missing something.


Is there a way to get flick type to show up at the bottom of the screen only, similar to the default keyboard? As it stands now, flicking down with one finger and occasionally, if my finger isn't high enough on the screen, then hitting send is a little counter intuitive. Maybe that's because of iOS limitations, though, or maybe there's a hidden setting somewhere I'm failing to find.

I also find when typing a message when I use a notification action and need to change to flick type as the default keyboard for some reason the switch keyboard doesn't show up at the bottom left of the screen. Again, I could be missing something.


Regardless, love this keyboard. I was on android for a while and this is one of the main reasons I came back to iOS among others. It's truly a joy to use and certainly, in my mind anyway, far surpasses flexi. The amount of work put into this and features added in such a short time is simply staggering.

When Fleksy first came out I paid nineteen dollars and ninety nine cents as a one time purchase price. Unfortunately, even this high purchase price did not generate enough revenue to sustain the app, so they released it to the general public. 
In order to please the masses the developers had to make Fleksy appear more like a qwerty keyboard, which made Fleksy almost impossible for the visually impaired to operate. 

As you can see, a one time purchase price will have to be very expensive to fund ongoing improvements, maintenance and other languages. 

Ninety nine cents a month is surely affordable for anyone who owns an iPhone and will generate a steady revenue flow, so FlickType will not end up in the scrap heap like Fleksy.

PS. Three and a half cents a day seems like a steal for a handful of magic.  😎

Hi,

On the other side of that coin, paying a one time fee of $15 and using the app for 2 or 3 years saves me that bit of extra money. Considering I am in Canada even moreso here.

I wish there was a way to get around apples greedy 35% snatched from the jar, though. I'd gladly pay with pay pal or something so the developer gets all of my money.

What I think, to be honest, is that what comes out to $12 a year is more than reasonable to support ongoing development. There are apps out there that cost double that or more which may or may not continue to develop. This way if anyone chooses to no longer use the app for whatever reason, you cancel the subscription and you're done. There's no paying a good chunk for something only to find out two months later that you have wasted that money.

I am currently using flick type classic because I don't want to pay a 99cents monthly fee. I might reconsider if there was a yearly subscription fee or a one time life Time fee would be OK.

Hello,
It you are no longer beta testing FlickType, you are more than welcome to Unsubscrive from the list.
To ensure that you don't receive anymore beta notification.
Go to testflight, it FlickType and FlickType clasic is there.
Then you have the option to stop testing.
This will remove the apps from testflight and your apple id

Hard returns vs space

Kimber Gardner <kimbersinbox1963@...>
 

Hi all,

Yesterday I was using Flicktype to write a shopping list when I
noticed that items were not being written if I followed them with a
hard return instead of a space.

Can anyone confirm this? Is this a function or a bug?

Thanks,

Hi again,

I'm using Flicktype on my iPhone as a third party keyboard. However,
when I downloaded it on my iPad the upgrade button is inactive. Both
devices are using the same Apple ID.

How does the subscription model work? I thought I would be able to use
Flicktype on any device registered to my Apple ID.

Thanks in advance,

The landscape rotation doesn't work! It thinks the letters are located towards the bottom right of the screen and I can't actually access the bottom row! 

A smaller font option in a future release would seem like an obvious fix. 
 
 Happened to discover by chance that half screen and smaller letters work without VoiceOver running!
