Monday, October 5th, 2009

The current 1.1.3 version does not work with firmware 3.1, but we are testing 1.1.4 today (October 4th) which will work with the 3.1 firmware.

Expect the new version in Cydia this week, you will be prompted to upgrade if you launch Cydia. This new version will fix it.

iTypeFastR 1.1.2 for OS3 is now in Cydia (via BigBoss repo)

Monday, July 20th, 2009


The software is out! Only upgrade to 1.2.1 if you are on OS3.

check in Cydia under keybaords. Or check it out on TheBigBoss:

Changes we made:

- Keys:
- We removed some of the smileys on the numeric screen, to be able to make the ’spacebar’ bigger again, after your requests

- We improved a lot in the landscape keyboard, which we expect will be used more in the OS3. LEt us know what you think!

- Graphics:
- We polished the graphics a bit

Improvements in version 1.11

Friday, May 22nd, 2009

We fixed two things in version 1.11:

- the enter key on the numeric screen has the right sensitivity area (the area was too small

- iTypeFastR works correctly in thirs party apps again, also when iKeyEx keyboards are installed

Improvements in version 1.1

Monday, April 27th, 2009

Functional additions:
We added as much stuff as we could in a week, that you guys asked for in the Uservoice forum:

- We added ‘&’ on the numeric screen (slide up on ‘+’)
- We added ‘%’ on the numeric screen (slide up on ‘*’)
- We added ‘₤’ on the numeric screen (slide up on ‘€’)
- We added ‘^’, ‘~’ ‘|’ and ‘\’ while we were at it

- We added the emoticons :-( and :-p and :-s and ;-)

Keep giving us input, we’re looking if how and when we can add your other requests!

Bug fixes, etc.:

- We improved the cooperation with the Skype app
- We improved the third party support.

1.06-2 We fixed the ‘daemon not running’ bug

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

Last night we found a bug that impacted around 1% of our users. It took a while before we could replicated it, because such a small group had the issue. We were able to fix it and the update is now live on Cydia.

Just go to Cydia, it’ll prompt you to upgrade. Do it, and the issue is fixed!

Thanks to Nils Rooijmans, who gave us all de data dumps from his device, Mason and Gary fixing it, and BigBoss for pointing the way for an acceptable package for the repository.

Improvements in version 1.0.6

Sunday, April 12th, 2009

Today’s new version (of april 4th) 1.0.6 has the following improvements:

- When hitting the “.” on the WERTY screen and sliding up, the “,” is outputted
this way


- L : 3 pixels more at the bottom (coordinates file only)
because no letter was sometimes outputted when ‘l’ was meant
- b  5 pixels less at the bottom (coordinates files only)
because b and v where typed sometimes when ’space’ was meant
- V  3 pixels less at the bottom (coordinates files only)
because b and v where typed sometimes when ’space’ was meant
- N: 2     pixels less at the bottom (coordinates files only)
because n was typed sometimes when ’space’ was meant
- W & A: decreased the height of the W, added it to the top of the ‘a’.
because ‘w’ was typed sometimes when ‘a’ was meant
- ‘.’ Started the ‘.’ one pixel more to the right
because ‘.’ was typed sometimes when ’space’ was meant

Visual changes:
- better aligned “:-)” in pop up
- better aligned the “‘” pop up as a whole
- better aligned the ’space’ pop-up on the numeric keybaord screen
- highered the position of the “.” in the pop-up, so the change to “,” is better seen when sliding up.
