FAQ

Will iTypeFastR still work if I restore my iPhone's firmware?

Yes it will. We link your device's serial number to your license. If you upgrade (or restore your iPhone), you can go into the app, click 'activate' and we will activate your device to use the app again.


On what devices does it work? Doe it also wotk on an iPod Touch?

iTypeFastR runs on iPhones and iPod Touch, running firmware 2.0 / 2.0.1 / 2.0.2 / 2.1 / 2.2 / 2.2.1 and 3.0. You have to be Jailbroken though.


Will iTypeFastR still work if I upgrade to a new version?

Yes it will. We link your device's serial number to your license. If you upgrade (or restore your iPhone), you can go into the app, click 'activate' and we will activate your device to use the app again.


How do I install it?

You can install it right from your iPhone, if you have an Internet connection when installing. Click on install on this page to see the step by step instructions


I installed it but no keyboard appears

You have to click the 'globe' icon on your iPhone keyboard to switch keyboards.
Try this in the 'Note' application. Mail us if that does not work.


It works, but not in mail, or not in safari (the internet browser)

iTypeFastR does not show in the 'to:' field in the e-mail program (up to version 1.1.1, it does in 1.2.1), and in the address bar of the browser. Try it anywhere else and it will work.
There are a few exceptions, where the keyboard does not show, because the iPhone does not use the regular keybaord but puts up a special keyboard (with @ instead of 'space', for example). iTypeFastR currently does not work there.


It works in some apps, but not in tweetie, twittelator, skype

This issue was introduced in version 1.0.7 but fixed in version 1.1. Upgrade to version 1.1 will fix it in almost all cases. Some other special keyboards using iKeyEX do not work well together with iTypeFastR (or vice versa, depending on how you look ;-). Mail us if you have this issue, so we can figure out in which cases this issue arises, and we can fix it.


What does it cost?

iTypeFastR was free for the first 10.000 users.
After the first 10.000, you can try it free for 20 days, if you like it after twenty days, you can buy a license for USD 3.99 here


I get a 'daemon not running error'

Some users encountered this bug in version 1.0.6. It was fixed in 1.0.6-2. Please upgrade to the latest version, and that'll fix it. You upgrade by launching Cydia. Cydia knows an upgrade is available and will show you it is available. Simply install it from there. If you had a free version, it'll stay free, if you have already paid, you can continue to use it.


It works, but it crashes Skype

Please upgrade to version 1.1. This fixes the issue, of you are running a jailbroken iPhone, without Winterboard or other app using the Mobile Substrate framework.
We are aware of the issue when running Mobile Substrate framework apps, Skype, and iTypeFastR, but have not been able to fix it entirely.
You can go into Safe mode using SBSeeting like this and use it.

The guy who developed Cydia, explains well how complex the issue is.


Autocorrect corrects all CAPS to lower case

Yes, we are aware of this. It is on the wishlist to fix this, but it is quite complex and not many users seem be bothered by it. Please vote on the Uservoice (click on the Feedback tab on the left of the screen) to let us know it bothers you.


Autocorrect corrects to English, can it correct to Dutch / German / French / Italian?

Yes, we are aware of this. It is on the wishlist to fix this, but it is quite complex. We are not sure yet whether we will be able to include this in the next version. It also depends on if we break even on our development costs, and can effort the extra development. Please vote on the Uservoice (click on the Feedback tab on the left of the screen) to let us know you want this feature.
