Textlicious is a tiny service that lets you enter styled text in places that normally accept only plain text. Make your tweets more expressive, your texts stand out, and your posts on the ‘book the envy of all your friends.
Just highlight any text you’re typing in any app, right-click, and select the style you want from the Services pop-up menu.
Available styles include bold, italic, serifed, typewriter, script, double-struck, and more.
• Added strikethrough (when you’re sorry but not sorry), overline, and blackout (in case you work for the NSA) effects.

“Rich Text” for Messages, Twitter, Slack, and More ...
This is such a clever idea. When writing in many apps that are limited to plain text, it is a neat hack to have, for example, italic for book titles and bold for emphasis. Some of the other text styles provided in Textlicious are fun to play with, but I probably will not use them as much. Because the approach uses an expanded Unicode "pallet," Textlicious doesn't work for every situation, but it works great for me in Messages, Twitter, and Slack.
I have long looked forward to the day when I could embolden or italicise my texts. Great execution! Would love it if the app didn’t live in my dock, however. Thanks again for the great little app!
So simple, but awesome!
Why do I love stuff like this so much? I have no freakin’ idea, but I do. Will add loads of fun to my daily texting and such.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
