Hi all,

Ashley and myself have been overwhelmed in recent months, primarily due to Ashley's health-related issues. She was hospitalized a while back but she's back home now. Most of the work I started has been put on hold.

Additionally, I wanted to let you all know that the total revenue generated by FlickType has been very little, barely enough to cover administrative expenses -- we are only doing this to serve the community.

That said, I do plan to see if it's possible to make it work with iOS 13. People are reporting that all 3rd-party keyboards are non-responsive with VoiceOver, and my experience has been similar, which sounds like a real show-stopper. I will have to wait until iOS 13 is finally released before I try to come up with any potential workarounds, so that I work with a somewhat stable iOS version rather than any of the ever-changing betas.

Finally, there's a chance I'll get around to switching to a small one-time fee instead of the subscription, if I find the time to do this.

Thank you for your support so far,

- Kosta

Chuck,

 

I'm with you on the not updating option until iOS 13 works with third party keyboards and especially FlickType. I do 95% of the input on my iPhone using FlickType.

Re: Annual subscription

 

Interestingly enough if I do bring up Flicktype when, for example, typing an email message, it works pretty well for me for basic typing. I am not a power user so maybe I am not qualified to say too much, but I just typed some text, it was responsive, predictions worked just fine and a swipe up dismissed the keyboard when I was done.

I can see how it is not possible to really make a living by charging a few hundred people $12 a year, if Flicktype had ten thousand users who paid that maybe it would be a bit different, but even then if Kosta and Ashley were to do this fulltime a hundred thousand a year for 2 people is barely a year’s worth of an average income especially since Apple keeps 30% of the $12 you pay for Flicktype. As for those like Chuck who would be willing to pay $10 a month, they are probably few and far between, I doubt there would be a hundred people who are willing to spend that much.

Yeah I would to because I use this app more than any other app on my phone. It's going to be a sad day in the event that this app goes away.

Hello,
I too would be willing to pay more. Not sure how iOS will hinder third party keyboards in future. Especially with current VO issues.
I wish Ashley continued recovery and good health. Your work is appreciated Kosta. I know running FlickType is more a labor of love. Having a limited community has its challenges. I do thank you for that.
I myself will continue to support. Until Kosta says he can do no more. It’s developers like this who try to give equal access. For that, I will do what I can. Even with fewer updates.
Best,
JP
