The application crashes for me when simply trying to change options under Settings. The touch-screen straight key interface seems a bit touchy for a beginner, at least in the tutorial mode, at least on my phone. One possible feature might be to offer a paddle-like two-button interface as well (a la Google's Hello Morse), and allow the user to choose between the two. Between the freezes and the touchy straight key, I ended up having to bail before even getting to the actual gameplay. Another possible feature might be to hit the targets by successfully reading the "beacon" letter/word that opposing ships would send, and typing that in to direct the fire appropriately. I really, *really* wanted to like this game, since it's the only Morse code tutorial game I've seen so far that comes close to the idea I had for learning and sending characters through a Space Invaders style format (hitting targets before they get to you at the bottom of the screen). Maybe if the stability improves, I could like it more. The concept is great; the execution... well, I don't want to knock it necessarily, because I appreciate you even trying, and you've already done a better job than I could do.

Great for learning to type Morse, helped me memorize all the letters in less than a week. Could use a couple of improvements, like setting the min duration for the dash, seems like too long once you get better at it. Would be awesome if it added the entire character set (numbers and punctuation), and if there were a set of levels for listening.

Very fun game. The idea is very original and fun but some things have to improve. Its very annoying that if in one word you got a mistake on 1 letter ther is no way to erase it and it takes a lot of time to reset to blank and start writing again. There should be an erase word or letter button. Also i think it should be levels and not waves because then the first waves become boring when you already know morse. They have no ads so thats a great thing too.
