Thread: LCWO APP?

Back to the Forum

I would like to know if you're going to produce an APP for Android & Iphone based on your online website. Or if there is one specifically you recommend. I do have a free app "Claus' Morse Trainer", however I have noticed that the computer voice mispronounces words like THE, 0-ZERO, and a few others and it takes a while to get used to it.
I would prefer to use the same trainer as what you have here online. It's difficult to use the online side on my Android phone.

On my side, it's not that difficult to use LCWO website mobile. I use is quite often, and it's quite fine. As you only need to play the lessons or other exercices, it's not a problem for me.

Sure an app will help but it's not essential. A great feature on lessons should be to set a weight to letters (for example on the case of a new letter, could be interesting to have more occurences of this letter, instead of random).

Also, if you have some issues with a particular letter or set of letters, to have them coming out more often should be nice.

Many "apps" today are just simple adaptations of an existing web browser, and I've discarded several such apps, even youtube's, in favor of storing favorite sites in a web browser. Rather than making a dedicated LCWO app, I'd suggest minor html/css changes to make a mobile-friendly website.

I just opened LCWO in Safari on my tiny 2018 iPhoneSE (1st gen., 3.48 × 1.96 inches) and it works pretty well, within the tight confines of touch tapping on a wee keyboard. Where's my ancient Palm Pilot Fitaly key arrangement, optimized for pen entry? :)

I found IZ2UUF Morse to be a good Smart Phone APP

Exactly my experience. What I wonder about is if the touch screen of (say an android phone) will fast(responsive) enough for keying.

I second IZ2UUF. Its a little pricey for an app but it does a lot of things (including Koch method).
