Ratings and Reviews
What happened with IOS 13.1?
Since I updated to IOS 13.1, this app no longer speaks. I am an experienced Braille user so can still type, but it is harder with no feedback. Please fix it!!!
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.
1: I got this and pressed the keyboard button just to experiment. I placed my fingers, and when I typed it got nothing I typed right. I even tryed different orientations. Nothing worked.
2: Wait so what about braille screen input? That's what I'm writing this review with. It's native, and it actually gets your fingers right.
Good idea but it doesn't work very well and it also exsists. Maybe braille screen input didn't exist when you made the app but now it does and it's better. So sorry.
