Re: Cost of Flick type for new users

Hello Gordon,
I also looked up FlickType on my computer, and the App Store says it’s a one time purchase of $1.99 US dollars

Re: Cost of Flick type for new users

 

Gordon,

I just looked up FlickType on the App Store using my computer and browser and the price is listed as $1.99. This should be the new user price.

I too faced this issue.

Later I found out that we have to turn off slide to type from the voice over rotor for flick type to function.

Hope this helps.

When they discontinued the subscription model and had everyone take the free upgrade a while back, did you do it?

The app and installed keyboard seem to be working fine for me on iOS 13.5.

You may try removing and reinstalling it.

Hi

From my understanding, you don’t need a subscription anymore, it is a once off purchase. And I absolutely love the app, use it all the time, there is no keyboard app that comes even close to it for low vision users. 

Regards

Hi Leonard,

do you have a running subscription? Having said that, I haven't found the restore purchase button on the app's setting dialog, I wonder where it's gone, but I am pritty sure you need a Subscription to use the app.

Am I wrong?

Re: Localising Flicktype

Paul Dromey
 

Hi JP and all.

I would echo everything JP says.  FlickType is terrific but I was disappointed when the Spanish option language was removed, having re-appeared very briefly some months back.

Obviously, I don't know how difficult it is to incorporate additional languages but I do know that the Spanish option worked very well when it was available.

Hoping for the best

Paul

Localising Flicktype

Jean-Philippe Rykiel
 

Hi friends,

Flicktype is so good, how can we help localising it in other languages? How much would it cost? Could you set up a crowdfunding for this? How many would be interested? Even though it's hard to tell as very few non-English speaking users know about this application.

I was so disappointed when Flexy drifted from its original goal, and became almost unusable to voice-over users. So I really hope in Flicktype now.

Let us help you help us.

My apologies, I am referring to the latest beta build. If you are not on the beta and would like to try it, join here: https://testflight.apple.com/join/jO9VT6Ei

Re: Watch app doesn’t work with voiceover

 

Thank you Jessica. Can you please try build 273 and see if that fixes the issue?

Also please note that the new gesture typing is not very usable under VoiceOver yet, so you might want to turn it off from the FlickType app settings on your iPhone.

Thanks,
- Kosta

Watch app doesn’t work with voiceover

Jessica D
 

Hi
I've really enjoyed using flicktype, however, with the last 2 betas, voiceover on the watch will not read what the user has typed.
It used to be that the word you just wrote would be spoken, after you enter a space, but this is not longer the case.

Can you fix this?

Thanks for sponsoring this episode of this amazing podcast!

Hi,
I'm a huge fan of both the following podcast, and Flicktype!
I just wanted to write a quick note to thank you for sponsoring this episode of the watchtime podcast, produced by 9to5mac's Zac Hall.

I think its really cool that you sponsored them.

Enjoy the episode, which I've linked below.
