Rune writer & keyboard

With this app you can transliterate text to runes based on a phonetic translation. This app translates the sounds of words, not the meaning. It is a good source for rune pronunciation and learning about the runic alphabets.

Supports the following major runic families:

• Elder Futhark runes (Common Germanic Fuþark)
• Swedish-Norwegian Fuþąrk (Rök; Younger Futhark, short twig)
• Danish Fuþąrk (Younger Futhark, long branch)
• Anglo-Saxon runes (Anglo-Frisian Fuþorc)
• Medieval rune alphabets

Supports Ogham (Old Irish script):
• Aicme Beithe / hÚatha / Muine / Ailme
• Forfeda (the letters added later)

• Old Turkic (Göktürk script / Orkhon script / Orkhon-Yenisey)
• Old Hungarian runes (rovásírás)
• Armanen runes (Armanen Futharkh)
• Gothic
• Old Italic
• Glagolitic (Old Slavonic "Glagolitsa", sometimes known as Slavic runes)

Text is transcribed to runes based on a phonetic representation (English, Russian or language agnostic).

seems cool but

when i copy the elder futhark to paste it Sowilo renders as epsilon. Also is it not possible to copy the text?

Developer Response ,

Hi! Sowilo has many different appearances, varying the number of squiggles. As plain text there are two different letters: the Elder Futhark and Younger Futhark variants. If you're looking for the 'thunderbolt' variant, try switching the alphabet to Younger Futhark or Medieval!

The GUI is difficult to navigate and you have to complete close it and open it again if you want to get past the first screen. Can’t translate runes from other people even though they are using the same application on their phone. Has potential, but not worth it.

Developer Response ,

Hi Katja, thank you for your review and sorry that it does not work work completely for your purposes. I'm addressing your issues currently, but I do not understand what you mean with having to 'complete close and open' the app. Could you please send an e-mail to maartentrompper@freedom.nl, possibly with screenshots to clarify? Thank you!

White Screen and font

After initially loving this app, I noticed after only 1 day the app has a white screen and font. Nit helpful. Any fixes or did I just robbed?

Developer Response ,

Hi, this should definitely not happen! Do you know what version of the app you are on? You should be able to see it in the app store. Also, could you let me know which version of iOS you are on? It may help if you restart your phone (sorry for the dumb suggestion, but sometimes it works!)
