Ratings and Reviews
It is the KINK!, I mean, KING!
It remains at the top of the heap. All that is written below remains applicable. Incremental improvements in function and stability, this app will not crash, and it will always get the job done. I love this app
By the way, I use this app on a old, iPad 2. You know, the second iPad following the first? This app supports my ancient iOS, 9.3.5. Groovy, yes? Also, on a iPhone 6S Plus. Dig it?
Use it ---love it.
=== older review below ===
My needs are simple. A text editor that will create and modify TXT dox. It is so good at that task, hands down. The App also works SEAMLESSLY with Dropbox helping me keep track of hundreds of recipes. BONUS for supporting (the much maligned) RTF and the over hyped, MS documents of various flavors.
Super Groovy is the, on the fly, text size modification, ala, Pinch-n-Zoom. My presbyopia-eyes (not, Bette Davis eyes) need the instant magnification. Magnificent.
Others have said their thing about this app in other, well, applications. In my case, I stopped spending, money, and time looking for the perfect text manipulator BECAUSE it is maintained and improved.
Excellent resource for creative writers!
Haven't used TextKraft Pro for several years. Just tried it out and it still does what I foremost request in a writing app--finds synonyms! It suggests synonyms and other related words as I type. Also provides links to external dictionaries and more. All right below at my convenience!
This used to be a 5-star app but no more
This used to be a really good app, I rated it 5-stars and used it most every day.
Infovole changed the the cloud access so everything has to be accessed through iCloud, destroying one of the nicest features of Textkraft; simplicity of accessing third-party cloud services. Since the introduction of using iCloud as an intermediary to third-party cloud services the simplicity is no longer a feature. For example, accessing files on OneDrive takes many more steps using icloud than the previous Textkraft versions
