Ratings and Reviews
Fix little bugs
I still use this app every day to input text, but I have a couple requests. Please bring back the working third party MBraille Keyboard from within apps. I can type and paste from the app of course, but it was so much easier to type in MBraille right from within the app I was using at the time. Second, fix multiple exclamation marks problem!!! In order to put multiple exclamation marks, I must swipe right to space, delete that space, and then put a 2-3-6. Writing several 2-3-6's in a row results in f's being typed.
ellegant and clean and always updated
This app as well as Apple's on-screen braille are what makes me an unabashed Apple fan. You can edit everything you write without leaving the app. Spell checking, calling a phone number, entering a calender item or a google search are things you can do quickly and efficiently with beautiful wonderful MBraille. The developer maintains a relationship with his community and we love the app. MBraille was the first app to get the translation issues resolved so that an s at the end of a word did not come out as the word so. Buy this app and fall in love with braille again.
The first app to offer contracted braille input and keeps getting better!
When this app first came out, the developer fairly quickly offered contracted braille.
He has continually updated the app, including offering UEB, custom layouts, and many dot commands that allow you to run other apps from within MBraille.
One person couldn't get it to work, probably because they didn't read the instructions or turn off tutorial mode. This is far better than Apple's onscreen braille and worth every penny.
