Is it just me or is there a bug in the latest version of Fleksy?
This is Bill from the Fleksy team. We really want to squash this bug so any more information you might have on it would be really helpful. For example, what is going on with your iPhone when the new line or delete gesture get stuck? Does it still happen if you put your device on a table?
Transitioning to the Direct Touch implementation is new territory, although we have tested extensively internally and with our beta testers. Feel free to contact us at email@example.com with any questions or information on this or other bugs. Thank you so much for being an awesome community.
Thank you Lou, this was an incredibly useful and insightful description.
I may have reached the same conclusion as you:
What happened, most likely according to your description, is you inadvertently had a finger(or even part of your palm) on the screen while holding the iPhone. The way the swipe and hold gestures work is by merging the two separate gestures, the swipe and the hold. This means that it doesn't have to be the same finger that does the swiping, the one that has to hold. The reason this is not reported by many users and not addressed by us this whole time is because there are few users that hold the iPhone and type like you do. I personally think it is the most convenient way to type too, but must have been luckier with the way my palms cradle the phone.
To confirm, type like normal and if it is stuck again, lay your iPhone on a table to see what happens when nothing is close to the screen. It should stop entering new lines.
This is obviously a matter we will look further into. Thanks so much!
