Hi, how do I access symbols like asterisk, percent etc. ?

Re: Symbols

 

Hi Dave,

To go from letters to numbers and symbols you can do a two-finger double tap, and then to alternate between the numbers/symbols and extended symbols it's a 2-finger single tap. A 2-finger double tap will get you back to letters, and a 2-finger single tap will alternate between upper and lower case letters.

Please let us know if you have any other questions,
Ashley

Hi Dave,
Hi Dave,

Thanks for your message. I'm assuming you're on the App Store version of the app? If so, you can go to the upgrade tab to upgrade to the 7-day free trial and test out the app as a system-wide keyboard. Once you hit upgrade the account will be active and you will need to follow the instructions in the upgrade tab to enable the keyboard system-wide.

Thanks,
Ashley

Re: WhatsApp

 

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the message. We've discovered a bug on WhatsApp's side but until they address it we have added a workaround in our settings. You can access the workaround by going to the FlickType app, settings tab, scroll down to the other tab where you'll find a toggle for the "reduced height" setting. Please enable the reduced height toggle, and if you want more information you will find that just below the reduced height setting.

Please let us know if we can help with anything else!

Great, Gera! Not everyone has experienced it luckily, but many have in particularly active threads, not in every thread, so if it does end up happening to you we have the workaround ready to go. Wink.

Hi,
In flicktype, there is a new “reduce height” setting, which should prevent the crashes.

Try that, & let us know what happens.

Thanks,
Jessica

Hi,
What happens if the upgrade isn’t active?

If this happens to me, the app still says, “active.”

If its not active, can you please indicate that?

Thanks,

When that happened to me, updated the app again this acted like restoreing the previous purchase.

Looking for low-vision, non-VoiceOver users

 

Dear FlickTypers,

We are looking to improve aspects of FlickType for those of you who are low-vision but do not always use VoiceOver. If that sounds like you, please let us know if you would like to be added to a new small group of users who will automatically get earlier builds, and provide us feedback for low-vision features like visual announcements, keyboard and character visual indicators, high-contrast color pairs, and more. And if you know someone else who might find this useful, we would be happy to add them to the group as well.

Thank you for your continued support! ☺️

Warmly,
Kosta

Hi costa, I would be interested in using FlickType without Voiceover. And test low vision features.

Kind Regards,

Re: One time purchase option

Ken Clarkg
 


 My thoughts on the one time fee, I have bought to many apps and then after a little while their gone. Was that they ran out of money to continue, where a monthly fee would have helped them. I could see a yearly fee that way this great app won't fall by the wayside. That way you would get charged once a year, and they would have money to work with ☺️

I agree, an annual subscription option would also be my preference. I hate this for my additional iCloud storage, both my wife and I have an extra 50Gb and we use the same Visa so every month I have 2 transactions for $1.35 (that is here in Canada), then I have our monthly Apple Music Family subscription, now the Flicktype… Yes, I could buy an iTunes gift card and load it up, probably should do that, then I won’t see all those charges on my credit card for a while.

Well while I understand that the one Life time payment option fee is not doable. Why not have  an annual renewal for $12 option. For example, I have to renew my tune in premium, VPN, at bat, dropbox, and iTunes match only once a year. This monthly for the renewal is exactly what I don’t like about my Amazon premium, Iheart, and Spotify subscription monthly renewal. I much rather be bugged once a year then be bug once a month. What’s the difference between paying $.99 per month and $12 annually? All  you would need to do is send out an  email that would tell you this subscription is about to expire in if you want to keep it do nothing or don’t want it any more cancel it Or if possible have it both ways. This is just my $.99 worth. Every country has an identity, history, custom, and culture. It’s a unique landscape in determining how its people Live, work, and play.

Hello, in order to maintain funding for continuing support and developments of the FlickType keyboard a ninety nine cent a month subscription seems to be the best option. 

 A one time purchase price would need to be so high it would make the app unafforadable for most people.

Hi, I was wondering if you guys could maybe consider adding a one time purchase option to unlock the keyboard?  My seven day free trial has expired and I can’t use the keyboard as a consequence.  Thanks for reading and developing this otherwise great app

I only disable VoiceOver if an app is not VoiceOver friendly. Otherwise I always use VoiceOver.

I turn on voiceover mostly on my. iPhone (rather than iPad) because I can rarely get the text large and bold enough for me to read.
