Even though Morse Code is becoming increasingly popular around the world in underground pop culture, it's astonishing to know that 99% of the people of the world either do not know Morse Code or even care that it exists. For you lucky few that have come to realize or even imagine the benefit from being able to communicate with others via eye blinking, table tapping, or smoke signals then this app will be an invaluable asset to you as you study your way to becoming a Morse Code ninja.
*****Please be aware that this app uses your device's vibrator to play the Morse code pulses. If your device does not have a vibrator such as the motorola Xoom or if your vibrator is disabled in some way you will not be able to use the app. When I get some spare time I plan to update it to use a variety of methods for playback, but for now please be aware of this limitation.
QST entertains and informs with news, construction projects, tutorials, and much more. That's why it is the most widely read Amateur Radio publication in the world. The digital version of QST goes even further with audio, video, and other content not found in the printed journal. Not an ARRL member? Join now at: www.arrl.org/join

PLEASE RATE AND REVIEW APP. Thanks in advance:)
Variable signaling rate.
Predefined signaling strings.
Morse Code to English translation.
Fully automatic mode.
Suggestions, recommendations, updates and more can be found here:
You can practice
or any combination of the above.
You can also select if you want to see or hear the morse codes, or both.
The concept of this app is to practice individual letters, not words or sentences.
Vibrate on mistakes.
The KENT Morse tutor generates random Morse code in groups of 5, or random length groups of 1 to 10 characters and lesson lengths of up to 250 groups of characters.
The selectable letters, numbers and punctuations can be played individually or in any combination.
Code speeds from 5 WPM to 40 WPM can be selected in 1 WPM steps, and an independent delay can be inserted between characters. This feature allows you to learn each character at the correct speed but allows thinking time between characters. as you improve, the delay can be reduced.
The tone can be set between 500hz and 1750hz
There are some known issues to be fixed.
- sounds play simultaneously if you make several mistakes
- need to correct pronunciations for some sounds
- need better translation
This is beta version, please leave your feedbacks - this will encourage me create new versions sooner and make this software better.
* Keeps track of your accuracy and provides a report per character at the end of a lesson.
* Intuitive keyboard with all the characters covered in the lessons, including prosigns.
* Hear how the new character sounds before a session starts so you can prepare for the lesson.
* You can opt to keep track of results yourself on a piece of paper.
* Farnsworth timing so you can reduce the effective speed if you fall behind without breaking the character rhythm (aligned to ARRL recommendations that preserves spacing ratios).
* Option to play new characters more frequently (handy for learning new characters). New characters are also *guaranteed* to appear in the lesson.
* Option to play all characters with equal probability (handy for practising all characters).
* Includes 43 characters including letters, digits, punctuations and prosigns.
* Choose the session duration, which character is next in sequence, WPM, different tone frequencies and more.
* Help is available from the app menu.
* Free (ad-supported).

This is my first release to the Android market and I’m sure there are going to be issues with some of the platforms. Please contact me directly through email with bugs/issues and suggestions. I will gladly work with you to resolve the issues.
-Plays typed text in real time and text files in CW.
-Small memory footprint regardless of file size.
-Adjust CW parameters while playing (WPM and Frequency).
-Chapter search to ease book navigation.
-Adjustable Farnsworth timing.
-Adjustable sound envelope rise and fall times.
-Ability to save useful phrases to memory for recall later.
-Ability to save useful phrases as a ring tone.
-Now with pro-sign support. Uses <> characters to delimit.
Version 1.0.9 added the Save Text feature. This feature will save the first 1K bytes in the edit buffer to new memory location. The first five memories will be added to the 'Save Text' menu for quick recall and play. The 'Manage' menu selection will navigate to the Save Text activity without adding a memory location.
Version 1.0.11 added the ringtone feature. You can save any of the saved Morse code phrases as a ringtone by long pressing the saved item and choosing generate ringtone from the menu. This will ask for the name of the ring tone. This is the name that will identify the ring tone to the system. After choosing a name, the file will be encoded to the Ogg Vorbis format and will be added to the ringtone, notification and alarms databases. They will be accessible to use from the Android sound settings. When you delete a phrase the ringtone will be deleted along with it.
This app only generates the ringtones. You must go to the android sound settings to use it as a ringtone.
The ogg-vorbis code runs in the native layer and is processor specific. It was done this way because it encodes much faster. It was first tried as pure Java and it was painfully slow. The drawback is that it may not run on some platforms. It has only been tested on AMR processor platforms.
If the app crashes while encoding, please forward me the information and I will try to resolve it rather than writing a bad review.
With version 1.0.4, the READ_PHONE_STATE privilege is required. This will only be used to detect if a call is answered, so that the Morse code that is playing can be stopped.
Version 1.0.9 added the ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION privilege requirement. This is only used to help tailor ads that are location specific.
Version 1.0.11 added the WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE privilege requirement. This is so ring tone files created with Morse Player can be created and deleted in external storage.
This is the free version and using it is a good way to evaluate if Morse Player works on your device. Its fully functional and contains ads. The paid version has the ads removed.
Morse code consists of
✓ Messages - convert words into sound , flash, flashing screen
✓ Training - the most interesting , try and find out )
✓ ABCs - Alphabetical list of symbols
App is divided into modes:
• Training - proposes to study Morse code symbol by symbol, each time increasing the knowledge and viewing the results
• Messages - shows on the main screen : any added message which wil be shown in order of Morse code via sound or flash the screen depending on the settings in the app
• ABCs - is a symbol’s list of Morse code
The study of 20 symbols is availible in the training mode free version
In the pro version all symbols are available for study and no ads in app
1) Learn morse code characters through the following modes
- graphical mode: morse code will be displayed as dots and dashes
- vocal mode: morse code will be spoken as dots and dashes
- sounding mode: morse code will be played as tones
- vibrating mode: morse code will be vibrated
- flashing mode: morse code will be played as light flashes
2) Become familiar with different morse code speeds
40 BpM = 8 WpM
60 BpM = 12 WpM
80 BpM = 16 WpM
100 BpM = 20 WpM
120 BpM = 24 WpM
3) Improve skills by practicing different modes/speeds and time measuring
(Activate checkbox “continue after correct answer”)
All morse code characters will be played randomly. After one run the time will be taken and displayed.
4) Contest / Game
MorseMind can be used as a game or to compare skills with others.
To my knowledge MorseMind is the first app which offers this selection of modes.
The programmer Paul Finkler developed this nice app with me. We are looking forward for feedbacks and suggestions.
