Cymbol, an iPad app providing fast, easy access to symbols, special characters, and scripts used in scholarly, business, and legal content, is now available from PhoneApp.com. Choose from special characters that are an adjunct available in addition to the iPad’s onscreen keyboard. The Cymbol app saves text sequences, provides Unicode conversion and much more.
With a primary slant toward snippet editing and management, Cymbol is useful for package design or label copy, also. Use Cymbol to compose a brief amount of text with those special symbols to identify a product, company, footnote or a branding message.
To use Cymbol on your iPad, insert the special character that you need in your snippet text. Cymbol provides common symbols such as the pilcrow (¶) and section symbol (§), copyright (©), trademark (™), text glyphs such as the number abbreviation (№) and other typography used in online and print content. The application includes full sets of subscript and superscript numbers used in math, chemistry, and physics documentation.
Cymbol provides unique functionality for the iPad. A snippet editing and management tool, the app has been designed by writers for writers, providing fast, easy access to special characters not currently available on the iPad’s onscreen keyboard. On the app’s ready scratch pad, put and save a variety of enhanced character sequences to paste into your next class assignment, product review, legal document, marketing plan, or package design.
Unicode conversion capabilities is perhaps the most powerful function offered by Cymbol. In Cymbol, you are able to quickly convert arbitrary hexadecimal code sets of four digits into any supported font output of the base character sets within iOS. Thus, you can add any iOS-available character in your text snippets.
If the included glyphs are not enough, you can also translate 4-character Unicode direct to glyph if supported in the target font. "Copy All", "Clear", and "Save" commands let you easily manage your snippets, making Cymbol a handy scratch-pad for frequently used text. Cymbol is designed by writers, for writers, to be fast and productive.
Example shown is an ammonia and a bicarbonate formula with this enhanced Cymbol edition.
1. Type in NH + HCO
2. Cymbol has a subscript 4 on the right so it shows NH₄
3. Then type xᐩ located in the Superscript row after that so it shows as NH₄ᐩ
4. Next NH₄ᐩ + HCO
5. Cymbol has a subscript 3 on the right so it shows NH₄ᐩ + HCO₃
6. Then type in xᐨ located in the Superscript row after that so it shows as NH₄ᐩ + HCO₃ᐨ
7. Net result is a cation NH₄ᐩ + anion HCO₃ᐨ as "NH₄ᐩ + HCO₃ᐨ" in the final chemical description
Upcoming releases will include more capabilities.
What's New in Version 2.0.2
Version 2.0.2 includes many exciting new features, including:
➛ Calculus and statistics such as μ σ ᴨ χ ∫ ∆
✓ Integration via core standard iOS with e-mail
✓ Optimized button layout
✓ Tweet connects with SMS short messages and direct messages
✓ Enhancements to advance its state of the art
I use this app on a daily basis for inputting chemistry equation. It is a fantastic and very easy app to use. The only reason I didn't gave it four stars is because you have to jump between apps to write your equation, then copy and paste into the app where you want this equation. It's not a big issue but it would be great if this could be added to the keyboard like an extender so you wouldn't have the leave the app where you are doing your work.
Ver. 1 was lacking, but Ver 2 sets it straight
For Version 1 I wrote "Admittedly, it does do some superscripts and subscripts, but to be truthfully useful it needs + and - as superscripts. If those are added it goes up a star." Well, we can now use + and - as superscripts and subscripts. These are essential when expressing polyvalent ion states and negative exponents.
Now this is a useful app that will complement numerous other apps. I will use it with Pages what will you use it with?
Good at what it does
Cymbol gives a practical way of writing when one needs to include symbols, subscripts, superscripts and most special characters. You write in Cymbol and copy/paste into the app of Your choice. It's not the best solution, but it is probably as good as it could be, given the way Apple set up the iOS.
