Re: Email Operations for Changing Groups.io List Settings

 

Please note that we have now created the alpha@flicktype.groups.io and beta@flicktype.groups.io subgroups. This means that the general group had to change to a flicktype.groups.io type of address, and it is now hello@flicktype.groups.io. I am not sure if the above posted links by Alan will now work, but it's worth a try.

FYI the creation of the 2 subgroups was done for the following reason:

The number of beta testers has increased dramatically, and keeps increasing faster and faster, and with that the number of messages will soon be problematic for folks looking to find something specific as well as keep their inbox under control. The alpha group will take away some of that volume and will also ensure that the beta releases, even though less frequent, will be more polished and probably trigger fewer bug report messages. In a similar fashion, once FlickType hits the App Store later this month, many people will want to join the discussion but will not be interested in anything related to beta or alpha builds.

Hope this helps, and please let us know how we can further improve this, we are open to ideas.

Just to add to this, the app crashes too. It opens, gets to where the
keyboard appears, and then crashes. It is every time the app is launched
without fail. I can't even send feedback through the test flight app
because that crashes as soon as I go under the Flicktype section. I'm on an
iPhone 7

Paula and Dave,

You can also accomplish ease of transfer of your FlickType output by turning on the copy and clear on exit setting which right now is the first one in the behavior section. Then, after you type the text you want to copy to Facebook or some other app, you just go to that app in your App Switcher or launch it and paste your copied text into the appropriate text box. FlickType will have automatically copied your text when you left it and went to the other app and when you return to FlickType, the input area is clear again ready for your next typing session. This saves considerable time as there is no need to go to the menus after typing.

Happy FlickTyping.

flicktype crashing

Rebecca Ilniski <rilniski@...>
 

Hi. I'm using flicktype on a 7 plus with 11.3. I've reinstalled the app through TestFlight and was typing away when all of a sudden it read what I typed and crashed. I was not finished typing and couldn't continue and had to close out and start over.

Re: Release #32: More sound improvements, quick reply links, and new settings

Shameless FanGirl
 

I love the crap out of these new settings. I've written two texts with this beta today, but was only using one earbud to do it... The audio panning functionality is brilliant. It serves as a fun way for us to determine where we are while typing versus where we want to be. In other words, an innovative learning tool for accuracy. Loving it. Also, the volume, and tap options are working well here. I've customized both to my preference, and an happy to have the alternative tap option back in portrait mode.

Not seeing a message on start-up. It just launches into the app proper, and is ready for usage. Granted I'm running a beta of iOS, not sure if that is a factor, but so far, everything I've tried is working well.

Subject: [flicktype] Release #32: More sound improvements, quick reply links, and new settings

App changes follow below. Please report all your feedback by replying to this topic. Thank you for testing FlickType!

In this release:
- Settings reorganization
- Added information for some settings.
- Fixed Quick Reply links. Information in settings.
- Internal sound logic revamp. Please report latency and volume issues.
- Stereo panning for tap sound effects. Try with headphones and tell us what you think.
- Choice of tap effect.
- Choice of tap volume.
- Choice of pitch for "Spell words".
- Choice of verbosity for "Raise to read back".
- Always show "Copy & clear" menu option, even when "Copy & Clear on exit" is enabled.

Earlier changes:
- Fixed app startup freeze on iOS 10
- Lowered the pitch of the new deletion sound.
- Restored the original tap sound, but a bit louder than before. New tap sound is used in landscape, tell us what you think!
- Use lower pitch when spelling words, rather than higher. Thanks Daniel!
- Don't use higher pitch to announce tokens with numbers or symbols.
- Fixed double announcement of typed text when invoking the menu.
- Added back missing voice feedback when VoiceOver is disabled. Note: having VoiceOver disabled is generally unsupported. For best results, please ensure VoiceOver is enabled when using FlickType. You can set your accessibility shortcut to include toggling VoiceOver when you triple-click the device button. Reading of punctuation is known to be buggy when VoiceOver is disabled.
- Complete revamp of of all sound effects: taps, deletions, errors, and more. Tell us what you think!
- Deletion announcements will now always use a lower pitch, and will not use the word "Deleted". You can turn that back on from the settings.
- Updated deletion sound effect, hopefully this is less intrusive. Thanks Serina! You can now also turn it off from the settings.
- Words with numbers and symbols will now be announced correctly and in detail, even if they contain no letters.
- Apostrophes in contractions like "it's" will be announced. Thanks Alan!
- Capital letter announcements will use the shorthand "cap" prefix instead of the full word "capital".
- Fixed pronunciation of colon symbol. Thanks Yana!
- Fixed wrong iPhone X keyboard positioning when in landscape mode.
- Added a few more words to the dictionary.

Please report all your feedback by replying to this topic. Thank you for testing FlickType!

PS: Don't forget to invite your friends! The more testers we have, the faster we can improve the app.

Using the term “sharing” might be more consistent with similar functionality throughout iOS.

Re: instructions dialogue box on start up

FlickType version 32

Michael Maslo
 

Hi list,



Ok I have installed the new version of this keyboard and it is working better. I like the sounds and it is more responsive. Is there a way to build in emote support? Also is what there a way to add our own words to the dictionary? Lastly, I agree about the instructions should have a toggle in the settings.


Re: Hi Kosta. Please could you add me to the Alpha testing team

 

Hi Dave,

Thanks for signing up for the alpha, confirming you've been added!

Warmly,
Ashley


Re: Comments on version 0.1-32

Harry Bell <ubupanoramix@...>
 

I had assumed that if the keyboard was visible, then I had to tap within that area, whereas with the invisible keyboard I could tap as if the keyboard had whatever dimensions I imagined it to have. But following Alan posting, I experimented and found that even with a visible keyboard, I could just type wherever I wanted on the screen. I still prefer the invisible keyboard as it is less distracting for me with my little remaining sight.

Hi Ashley, Kosta, and List,



I've loaded the latest build 0.1-32 and have a few comments:



1. I very much like the addition of headings to the settings section to
distinguish the setting groups.

2. I also appreciate the addition of trailing text following certain
settings to provide more info on the setting's purpose. I think providing
this info under more setting items such as:

a. The Tap Effect choices of standard or alternative to let folks know
the difference without having to actually invoke it.

b. The Raise to Red Back setting choices of standard or verbose would be
clearer if some trailing text stating that the verbose setting reads all
punctuation was provided.

c. I'm still not sure I know what the Invisible Keyboard setting does so
some trailing text clarifying this setting would be nice.

3. I personally liked the ability to state email and phone in the quick
reply links but won't quibble about this. I did notice with this change that
my settings from before were cleared and now when I invoke either the @ or #
by pressing and holding on the keyboard to invoke the additional line of
symbols that neither of my quick reply values are presented in the flick
down choices. I assume if I enter either my email address or phone number
here that FlickType will again place it appropriately under either the @
group or # group, respectively.



Thanks so much for the continued efforts on this great app.



Happy FlickTyping,



Alan Lemly

Version 32 crashing solved!

I had crashing with version 32 on iPhone 7 Plus with iOS 11.3 but I followed the advice to delete the app and reinstall from TestFlight and now all is well. I simply had to adjust the Settings to suit me and I was back in business! Great app!

FlickType version 32

Michael Maslo
 

Hello,



Here are my findings on version 32. First I am using an iPhone x. I am running version ios 11 4. I am having the following major and I want to stipulate major issues. First, I had to delete the keyboard after updating because it crashed. After I deleted the keyboard I installed it again.



When I started to started to type, there was a latency issue immediately. I would type a word and majority of the time the word would not show up at all. If I continued to flick a word would eventually show up. However, if I had typed a three letter word, instead of that three letter word appearing a five letter word was suggested. When I would flick up and down what there was major latency issued what there also. When trying to delete a word I would sometimes have to flick at least eight times before that one word would be deleted. I like the sounds but the latency issues for me make it unuseable for me.
