New and improved Flick type update

Gordon
 

It's now available in the app store with much better accuracy. I see a big difference.

Re: Has anyone else noticed this

Gordon
 

Well I did discover something that appears to be added with yesterday's update. In settings there is now an option for the keyboard to learn new words. This was turned off, so when it's off it does not add words to the dictionary. However when I turned it on, the keyboard seems to be working as it always has. So now you can choose if you want words added to the dictionary. I turned mine back on because it definitely improves accuracy on my phone.

After updating yesterday, flick type isn't as accurate as it was prior to yesterday's update. It will usually present the word I'm trying to type, however I have to flick down a lot to get to it. Where as in the past it would usually be the first choice when I would flick right one time. Has anyone else experienced this?

Re: Confused about "in app purchases" in app store description

Tony Hernandez
 

The description of the app hasn't caught up with reality yet, but we have heard it right from the horse's mouth that there is no more charge than $2.99 for new paying customers. Sorry Kosta. I think horses are beautiful, strong, and majestic creatures, so there. Lol. This news has also received a write-up on the well known and reputable Blind Bargains blog, further cementing the veracity of these tidings, as there is no way that they would have put this in writing without verifying the information. Here's the URL for that article:

I am confused about the “in app purchases” mentioned in the description of the new Flicktype app.  I thought Flicktype had moved to a non-subscription model and that its use only required a one time purchase price of $2.99.

 

However the app store entry states:

 

In-App Purchases

 Use inside all apps$0.99

  1. Use inside all apps$11.99

 

This implies that the $2.99 isn’t as functional as the current Flicktype app and that there is an extra charge for unlocking it to be used with all apps.  Plus both of these options look the same.  What am I missing?

 

Thanks.

Dear Kosta. It’s so nice to have you back. Let me join the other members of this list to wish you and your whole family a wonderful happy and joyful year 2020. Of course, if I can do anything to help localise this app to French, please Let me know.
In English, it is now my favorite keyboard, soul s’il vous plaît, n’oubliez pas les Français.
Best regards,

I just used Flicktype on my Apple Watch series 4 (paired with iPhone XS running latest iOS with Flicktype new beta).
I expected the Flicktype keyboard to pop up when I go into my list of Messages and start to reply - wrong! I had to find and open the Flicktype app on my watch, double tap to open it and then it took about 5 minutes to download the app, though it did tell me that it could carry on doing this in the background. When it was ready, I double tapped and composed a message and hit Send and my list of messages appeared so I could select which one I wanted to send my reply to: I double tapped on a message, my composed message was there ready so I hit send. All this worked so well with VoiceOver! My original confusion was because it was not obvious how to use the app, hence me detailing the steps above to save others stumbling about in the dark!
Now I understand it, it is brilliant!

Hello George,
Fliktype is $2.99 USD, for anyone who’s never downloaded it before. If you haven’t downloaded it on your work phone, and it doesn’t use the same Apple ID, you will have to pay the price.

Hi Kosta,
As others here have said previously, we're so glad you're back!
The "flicktype notes" does have an iphone app, its on my 5th page.

I' love Flicktype!

I was telling someone about flicktype recenqly, and she asked me how hard flicktype is to use, when compared to the ios keyboard, which she said she struggles with.
What's the best way to explain how flicktype works?
Thanks,
Jessica

 Hello Jessica
The FlickType Notes app that Kosta has just recently developed, is mainly four sided users. This allows the cited community to have a viable keyboard on their watch, which is never been available before. The reason why he is putting this new keyboard out there for the sided world, is to generate money which he will use to keep Fliktype for the blind alive!
The subscription just didn’t make enough money to keep Fliktype viable, but If the keyboard takes off, and enough people buy it, Fliktype will be in the pink for a long long time! 😎

In the latest App Store update, the language option between English and Spanish appears to be working seamlessly but this is not the case in today's Beta version.

I hope that this option continues in the future as it is, for me, one of the most crucial components.

Has whatever was causing that ben fixed? If not, seems that is just going to end up with long wait times after some time. Removing all entries from the dictionary is also suboptomal for people who routinely type words that flicktype doesn't recognize.

Wow! I cleared my FlickType dictionary and the loading time of the app went from 28 seconds to instantly!
