PLEASE RATE AND REVIEW APP. Thanks in advance:)
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.
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.
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.
More from developer
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.
