Morse-It is an easy to use application that allows to translate, interpret, type, learn, convert Morse code, and much more.
It is retina display enhanced, universal binary (run on iPhone/iPod and iPad), and is compatible with VoiceOver.
Type some text and it will be automatically encoded into some fullscreen flashing effect of the associated Morse code.
The flash light of your device will also be used.
Your "SOS" messages will be seen quite far away !
Some sound will also be played accordingly. In detailed mode, the text being encoded is scrolling through the decoding process.
Tap some morse code onto the screen and the program will translate it into some text.
Different input types are handled : Novice, Straight key, Memory Paddle, Iambic Paddle (A and B), Microphone. Left and right handed modes supported.
Test and improve your skills : are you good enough to be understood?
Create audio files containing Morse code in a dynamic way or from a given text.
Use those files as you wish : listen to them to train your decoding skills or use them as ringtones for your phone.
Exclusive feature allowing to decode, in real time, the Morse code recorded from the microphone into Text (the sound must be quite clear/loud and without much noise).
Some automatic calibration is performed, allowing adaptation to speed, tone and volume changes.
The full Morse alphabet can also be consulted and the associated Morse code can be played.
Tapped and decoded text can be edited and exported to the clipboard, the In-app email and SMS.
A special screen allows textual conversion of morse code and text. Exchange encoded messages with your friends.
Wikipedia and Visual Mnemonic screens allowing to get informations and mnemonics regarding morse code.
You can also add your own web sites for an in-app consultation.
All the application is highly configurable (Frequency, WPM, tone type, color, morse characters, variables ...)
!!! As seen on TV !!! (UK) in Most Haunted Live: Apparently you can use it to communicate with ghosts (no guaranty though)
Premium features can also be unlocked as a single in-app purchase :
Koch trainer screen, CWops Academy learning method, Quiz screen, Prosigns, Macros, Dictionaries : abbreviations, QSOs, mnemonics, Timing (farnsworth) and Morse alphabet/prosigns personalization, look customization ... and more.
Morse-it is powered by Icom, a world leader in the amateur radio market.
Thank you for using Morse-it!
Here are the changes since last time:
• Possibility to disable the visual feedback (flashes) on the Paddle (in Settings> Global> Key type).
• Hardware interface : new keyboard keys supported : Alt, Shift, Control (both left and right), F1, F2...
Ratings and Reviews
I’m learning Morse and find this app a valuable training tool. I love being on the and use the decoder next to the radio so I can understand what is being coded. Works ok and it does pick up words here and there. But I guess if it’s being coded properly it decodes superbly. The only way to be serious about learning is to force oneself on the air cause that’s when it gets real and all pistons need to be firing on all 12 cylinders LOL. Seen the upgrade features alert about the haptics but clicked the message off before looking to see how to set it up.
Truly an amazing app if only...
...the lack of documentation didn’t serve to keep most of it’s awesome features a mystery! It is completely maddening to know there is must be a feature that does this or that only to be left to stumble around in the dark. It is certainly an Apple standard to build a product so well-designed that no instructions are necessary — do you have any idea how much work it is to attain that standard?! You are not even close! Please, please document this application. it is not nearly as much fun as developing a wicked cool app, but I can guarantee it would be the best CW application ever if only people could know what it can and does do! And please, take a look at what text and vids you to have out there — it is most misleading, inadequate, or assumes the user can read your minds.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your message.
I take note of it.
As a single developer, I have to choose how I spend my time with the app.
Up to date documentation, global improvements, new features, ios upgrades adaptations, potential fixes are some of the possible choices.
There are pros and cons to spend time on one thing or another.
Of course, Apple with its thousands of engineers can do all of that (but you'll still find some people unsatisfied).
I don't pretend to compare to them.
The global decision I made here is that the basic features in the app (without going in the settings screen or getting the premium features) should be clear enough to be used intuitively.
The more complex features (changing the settings/using premium features), are mostly useful for people already interested and knowledgeable in Morse code, or interested enough on the subject to document themselves on the internet.
Most of the features / options should talk to them (even if may require to 'play' with them to see how they work)/
And in case there is something really too obscure in the settings/app, there is a support email that can be used to contact me.
Don't hesitate to contact me to this support email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need help with something you don't understand in the app :)
Best App Available
Morse-it, with its recent changes, is now the best training app for those serious about mastering Morse as a language. There is an in-app option to unlock additional modes. I recommend simply including it in the total purchase price.
I feel there are better apps for learning letters, but once you graduate to learning whole words and phrases, this is the app you want. The ability to text others exported Morse audio is also fun (if you have a training partner). This is one of the few apps to support this feature.
