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). Left and right handed modes supported.
Test and improve your skills : are you good enough to be understood?
Exclusive feature allowing to decode, in real time, the Morse code recorded from the microphone (if available) into Text.
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.
All the application is highly configurable (Frequency, WPM, color, morse characters ...)
!!! As seen on TV !!! (UK) in Most Haunted Live: Apparently you can use it to communicate with ghosts (no guaranty though)

Koch trainer screen, Quiz screen, Prosigns, Macros, Dictionaries : abbreviations, QSOs, mnemonics, Timing (farnsworth) and Morse alphabet/prosigns personalization, look customization ... and more.
What's New in Version 5.0
Global : Adaptation to the iOS7 look (while keeping the previous look for devices with an older iOS version).
Global : Upside down orientation supported on iOS7 iPhone devices allowing to change the direction of your microphone/speakers.
Global : It is now possible to change the text size of the different text areas of the application.
Global : Bluetooth headset support for microphone and speakers (the sound unit can be selected using the iOS control center, while using Morse-it).
Premium : Improved look customization for iOS7 users.
Premium : Addition of a macro list containing all the English common words. This list can be handy using the Trainer or the Quiz.
Decode : It is now possible to set the initial value of the decoding speed (i.e : 25 WPM).
Decode : Is is now possible to disable automatic adjustment of the decoding speed, which can be annoying when the WPM speed is fixed and known from the beginning.
Decode : The decoded text is now persisted between application launches.
Tap : The manually edited text (using the device keyboard) is now kept when the Morse pad is used after edition.
Best one I found
I have tried out a bunch of these for ipad and his one is just what I wanted. However, this required me to buy the full version. I was going to buy one of those practice oscillator straight keys for 40 bucks plus shipping, but not now. The taps are responsive and accurate and the tone can be adjusted. I find that the testing feature very helpful. I am hoping that my bluetooth keyboard that I have on order will work with it.
Best I found for the iPad so Far!
Not a bad app. The only thing that I wish could be changed would be the ability to have the Speed of the Tones for the characters be adjustable and independent of the spacing delay between characters. That way you have the ability to learn the rhythm of the sound for each character at a certain speed and once you know the rhythm you can decrease the time delay in between words to get your speed up.
Other than that I like it!
Very good program
After you learn how to set up this program it is quite accurate. It works for sending and receiving. This is my main program to use on my iPad. It is also a nice helper to learn morse.
