Textcraft is a magical utility that allows you to transform any text in real-time into a variety of 90+ different formats.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE TEXTCRAFT:
It’s built with macOS design guidelines in mind to look great in light and dark mode alike, along with containing multiple tints and themes to tweak the app your way. The intuitive ‘click to copy’, and 'right-click to share’ gestures coupled with the keyboard shortcuts also makes using the app super simple to pick up and use.
Multi-window support coupled with Drag and Drop is also extremely useful for quickly and easily dragging text from other apps directly into the app for quick transforming. Whether this is to add hashtags to words social picture sharing sites, or mimic mocking Spongebob in conversation with your friends, there’s something for everyone. There are also various ASCII text face emoticons for quick and easy copying.

Functions, but UI clumsy
I need a tool like this, and despite my usual misgivings about rushing into purchasing a relatively expensive app without a "test drive", I took the plunge.
While after some cursory testing the app does seem to work as promised in terms of text transformations, the user interface is pretty basic.
- what you get is a long scrolling presentation of all the various transformations after entering or pasting into the topmost slot. Finding the output you're looking for can be very cumbersome. Pasting in a full page of HTML source results in a huge amount of scrolling before you find the plain text output (which is surely what 99% of users would be looking for in that scenario). Some context sensitivity would help here. Or my suggestion would be, if possible, to collapse the headers, allowing the user to select the desired output, upon which that style could be displayed as an expanded text; or maybe just select the copy/send actions direct from the header.
- Deletion of the entered source text is very clumsy, not to say frustrating. This is because the standard iOS select/copy functions don't work as far as I can tell. The only option seems to be to (repeatedly) position the cursor after the last text, then hold onto the delete key for as long as you can before it runs out of steam.
If the dev fixes just those two main issues, I will be happy. Until then, I've blown seven quid on a semi-useful tool.
Developer Response ,
Hi there, thank you for the great feedback. The latest version now adds the ability to long-press text transformation types to pin them to the top of the list for quick access, as well as the ability to search for transformation types to narrow them down. You can also use keyboard shortcuts to quickly go-to, select, and edit text. The standard iOS select/copy functionality also works as expected. Hope this helps! - Shihab
EDIT: The latest update now also allows you to toggle displaying specific sections (via settings).
