I disagree, flick type is working great for me, especially since iOS 13.2. I will continue to use it until it doesn’t work any more.

As a previous contributor has said, the slide to type on the Apple keyboard is far better than FlickType at the moment.

Hi

I think Kosta was very clear the last time he sent the group an update.  The app is not financially viable and he has a family to support and so would need to focus on income generating operations.  Who of us can blame him, I certainly can’t. 

FlickType is the best  keyboard for the visually impaired by far.  It is not dead as the version in the app store works very well with the odd bug, but for everyday use it is a game changer for us and for that I would like to sincerely thank Kosta and Ashley. 

The last time the app was about to expire on the beta testing cycle an update came through just in time, I am not convinced there were any major bug fixes, I felt it was a kind person sharing his hard work for people to use for free for a time.  I really don’t understand the negativity that is directed towards them by some members of this group. 

Thank you Kosta and Ashley for a brilliant app. 

 Regards

 Scott

Hi,

My gut instinct is that FlickType is dead,

Even though the developer has had issues of the last couple of months, I would’ve thought that and email from the developer by now would have told us what was going on.

 

Kind Regards,

It will still work though, but if you have to uninstall it for any reason, you won’t be able to get it back again.

Good morning,
My observations were not negative, but based on the state of the current situation. I don’t know why it’s so hard to have an authentic conversation in the blind community. Without opinions constantly being devalued or dismissed. I won’t waste anymore of my time expanding on that.
Kosta and Ashley’s efforts are greatly appreciated. No matter what, they must do what’s best for them and family. Their dedication is and will always be commended by myself. Knowing and understanding the difficulties of sustaining an app for a minority group.
Best,
JP

I totally disagree!
I wasted 3 hours trying to use the slide to type keyboard and never achieved half the speed I get with flicktype, and I sent Apple accessibility my results.

Re: Beta expiring soon

Eileen Misrahi
 

Hello All,

I am probably too late to download the app from the app store. I did open up the app store on my phone and it was not listed in my history, nor was it in a search for a new app download. I was just charged my monthly subscription fee on 11/6. So, where do I go from here? Any suggestion is most welcomed or maybe Kosla can pipe in so I can continue using the app.

Thanks in advance.

Best,
Eileen

Unable to switch to smaller FlickType keyboard while in standard mode:

Dear team and fellow flicktype users, I am in standard mode. I was able to get smaller keyboard just the Size of general keyboard. Whine in Beta mode. Unfortunately, I am unable to get this Size In app store version.
Kindly guide.
Request to kindly Update app store version To what had Been Available in Beta version.

I think there's some misunderstanding. In the beta of Flicktype, if you've set the keyboard not to display what you've typed and you're in standard view, it shrunk the keyboard down to how the stock iOS keyboard looks. In the App Store version, you still get the black box above the keyboard regardless if the setting I mentioned above is turned off. It's a minor annoyance so I can live with it. I prefer Flicktype over the stock iOS keyboard any day.
