Morse Chat allows amateur radio (ham radio) enthusiasts to communicate with each other using Morse code (CW). Users can chat in Public Rooms, Private Rooms and with DMs.

- Communicate with fellow Morse enthusiasts from far and near simply by tapping dots and dashes.
- Meet new friends in a number of public rooms (10 WPM or less, 15 WPM, 20 WPM or more, Test room and so on).
- Share and exchange ideas with your Inner Circle by creating private rooms.
- In private rooms, the owner can modify room details (room ID & name) and remove members.
- Text your friends privately with direct messages.
- 7 types of Morse keys to choose from (e.g. iambic).
- NEW! “Playground” to test and train your Morse code sending skills.
- Support for external keyboard.
- Easily subscribe and unsubscribe to notifications by clicking the bell icon at the upper right corner.
- Learn and practice Morse code in real conversations (click on the question mark icon in any chat screen to see Morse representations and the most common Morse abbreviations).
- Auto-translate between Morse code, Morse representation and text while receiving or sending messages. You decide what to show and in which order in Settings.
- Option to show live translation while typing the Morse code.
- Try the app out as a guest or sign in with your Apple ID, Google account or Facebook account.
- Completely adjust the app according to your preferences:
1. Choose the frequency and output mode of the Morse messages (audio, blinking light, flashlight, vibration or audio + blinking light).
2. Adjust the transmission speed when using auto-translate.
3. Change the theme (Cyan, Bright, Dark, Black).
4. Enable/disable auto-send, auto-translation and more.
- Absolutely no ads.
- Easily block annoying users.
- Blog posts and the info screen provide detailed instructions on how to use the app.

Morse Code
Morse code is a communication system that uses a series of short signals (also known as dots or dits) and long signals (also known as dashes or dahs) to transmit characters. The initial version of it was developed by Samuel F. B. Morse as a method to transmit natural language through the telegraph in the mid-19th century.

Morse Chat
Morse Chat is an app that allows users to communicate with others using Morse code. Once you sign in, you’ll see 3 big buttons which correspond to 3 main ways of chatting.
- Public Rooms. A number of rooms (10 WPM or less, 15 WPM, 20 WPM or more, Test room and so on) has been created to allow chatting with fellow Morse code enthusiasts. These rooms are open to everyone. Contact us if you have an idea for a new public room.
- Private Rooms. These can be created by premium users, and joined by any user (premium or not) who gets the room ID and password (case sensitive) or is invited by an existing room member.
- Direct Messages (DMs). These are private messages between two participants. Simply create a DM by searching the other user’s display name or call sign.

Please add iambic support!

I really like the idea!! However I want to start with iambic. I understand it’s a challenge to interface the key, especially with iOS.. One solution that I can think of is to use HID. Hams are pretty good at diy. It’s trivial to convert an iambic or straight key to a USB or Bluetooth HID device using Arduino and the cost is very low. Then the app only needs to map 2 characters to dot and dash. If reading keyboard input is challenging (ie no way to get pressed/released events), we can use MIDI instead. The Arduino adapter can easily emulate a MIDI device. Please do consider this idea! Also feel free to contact me if you need more info about the Arduino. I can create a Github project to share how to connect a Morse key to phone/computer as well. 73 de kn6pzo

Even though I’ve had it for a few hours, I’m glad I get some practice with this, and we get into some pretty good topics
