Morse code is a method of transmitting textual information as a series of on-off tones, lights, or clicks that can be directly understood by a skilled listener or observer without special equipment. The International Morse Code encodes the Roman alphabet, the Arabic numerals and a small set of punctuation and procedural signals as standardized sequences of short and long signals called "dots" and "dashes" respectively, or "dits" and "dahs". Because many non-English natural languages use more than the 26 Roman letters, extensions to the Morse alphabet exist for those languages.
Each character (letter or numeral) is represented by a unique sequence of dots and dashes. The duration of a dash is three times the duration of a dot. Each dot or dash is followed by a short silence, equal to the dot duration. The dot duration is the basic unit of time measurement in code transmission.

This app is a Morse Code keyer not a keyboard. I just want to make this clear as I have gotten some bad reviews from people who thought it was a keyboard. It is for practicing Morse Code and sending messages with this app no other. I'm sorry this was not clear before.
This is the free version and has the same functionality as the pro version, but contains ads. Using this app is a good way to evaluate if this works well on your device.
The keyer is a full Iambic keyer with one caveat. If you push the dah key, then press the dit key, the characters will alternate like an Iambic keyer. The issue is if you lift your finger off of the dah key, the output will stop instead of continuing to repeat the dit character. This is due to the way Android multi-touch works. In the same scenario, lifting the dit finger will allow the dah characters to continue.
Morse Code Keyer features a settings screen where screen layout, keyer and sound settings are adjustable.
The layout options consist of turning on and off a small popup window. This window will show the dits and dahs as they are entered. The side of the screen the dit key is on can be adjusted (right or left). There is also an option that affects the visibility of the words per minute (WPM) slider.
For the keyer you can adjust whether or not the keys should repeat. For example, holding the dah key repeats the dah key at the current WPM setting. Iambic mode is also adjustable. With this on and when both keys are pressed, the dits and dahs will alternate. The auto spacing feature is also adjustable. This adds spaces automatically at word boundaries.
The sound setting that is adjustable is the rise and fall time envelope percentage. The percentage is of the total dit time. Longer values will make a softer sound, while shorter values give the sound more punch.
Thank you for your interest in Morse Code Keyer. If you any issues what so ever, please contact me rather than leave negative feedback. I will work with you to resolve the issues.
Enter a message and the phone will display and vibrate the message in Morse Code.
Turn on the SMS option and the application will vibrate any incoming SMS messages for you in Morse Code.
(This application is free but backed by ads, and hence needs Internet access.)
