Flicktype App

iOS and iPadOS

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

Just a quick thought, but, do you have the phone in portrait, or landscape? It sounds like you might have an issue with orientation since your flick responses sound more like something I'd expect from a flick down or up.

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.
