Flicktype App

Club AppleVis Member

I subscribed to and am trying to use Flicktype. When I'm in text area and type, characters are not showing up in text field. When I flick left, I hear "Export Text". When I flick right, I hear "Flicktype" or "Next keyboard". I've tried switching typing modes in my iPhone Accessibility settings but that hasn't helped. Deleted app and re-downloaded it. Also shut phone down and re-booted it. What am I missing? Thanks. Greg

Flicktype is a third party

Flicktype is a third party keyboard that has recently been made to work across the system.

The app is free to download and use, however the system wide keyboard requires the purchase of a subscription which is done inside the app itself. Hope this helps.

Hi Greg, thank you for subscribing and sorry to hear you’re having trouble. I agree with @DPinWI, great suggestion. Sounds like your device may be locked in portrait mode but you’re interacting with it in landscape, after a quick test I was able to reproduce the experience you describe.

Please let us know how it goes.
