This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Translate text into high-quality Morse Code audio. Use with the HotPaw MorseDecoder app for "secret" audio communication between two nearby iPhones using just Morse Code sounds.
Just type some text into the Text2Morse text window, and hit the "Send Morse Code" button, and hear the results.
Configurable WPM speeds from 5 to 40 WPM and tone frequencies from 300 to 1200 Hz.
You can also download text to send from a web URL. If the text file which you plan on downloading from the web is not a plain *.txt text file (something from your blog, for instance), use unformatted text, and put the prefix "MorseText:" just before your desired text, and "EndMorseText" at the end. Downloading text files requires an internet connection. Only a maximum of 8000 characters can be downloaded from a file in this version.
Extended use of LED flash may reduce battery life.
What's New in Version 1.5.1
Updated for iOS 8.
Bug fix for a crash on non-ASCII character input.
Not for IPad
I assumed it would work on IPad too...wrong. It only shows the Text page with no controls. Highly recommended by a friend, but guess he is using IPhone. Bummer—$1.99 donation.
Best of the batch
I've used Text2Morse to bring up my receiving speed. At higher speeds, it produces the best sounding code of any of the six or so apps I've tried. Right now I listen at 33WPM, and the code generated is great. The other apps either have a soft attack that becomes unreadable above 16 WPM, or they produce annoying key clicks. I copy equipment reviews from eham.com and paste them into Text2Morse, and listen while traveling, or as I get ready for work in the morning. Except for the guys that run all the letters together, I can copy most anything I hear on the air. Now if I could only send accurately at those speeds.....
