FlickType as 3rd party keyboard on iPad OS 15 and 2021 iPad mini problems…

iOS and iPadOS Gaming

Hi everyone,

So I’ve got FlickType working fine on my iPhone 12 Pro on IOS 15, EG it is an optional keyboard system wide. The trouble I’m having now is that it doesn’t seem to be system wide on my new iPad mini 2021. I’ve updated everything as much as possible but simply not getting it as a 3rd party option when I go to general > keyboards > addd keyboard.

Has anyone got any suggestions?

You will have downloaded the newest version of Flicktype released on Wednesday, which has removed the option using it as the system keyboard.

If you haven't already updated the app on your iPhone, make sure that you don't, or you will lose it there too.

Well that sucks a great deal. I realise that aspects of the app were being pulled but thought the accessibility parts were being kept in place.

Damn, I'm going to have to look for a different solution then. Brailing is fine but I do find it takes more brain power when dealing with contractions.

Sad news indeed.
