  1. No Audio

    Running version 1.45 of the app and iOS 11.4 on a iphone 6S+. The audio works when connected to headphones but will not work (through the phone’s speaker) if the headphones are removed. Restarting the app does not fix the issue.

    • Don’t that is used can be a bit confusing when learning calls. 1 looks the same as l. Would be great if the font could be tweaked.

      I love this app and I use this most of the time. I also like g4fon due to being able to setup qrm etc. For a phone app this is great.

          • Include CWOPS pracitce sets

            Is it possible to create custom sets? I am using CWOPS to learn CW. they have a structured list of sets for practice, http://cwops.org/cwa/PIHA-Level1.pdf. while I have program the letters in the order produced. it does not include the words for their sets.

            BTW CWOPS included Ham Morse in their most recent news letter, https://cwops.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/solid-copy-201807-1.pdf

            • Make the app rotate horizontal

              I use my ipad with a keyboard cover so it is always in a horizontal mode. This app is almost useless to me without this feature. All other apps I have including calculators will work in the horizontal mode. Thanks

              • Incorporate a Keyboard Copy Option

                I use an ipad with a keyboard for copy practice. The application is perfect, with this one exception.

                    • Fix &apos showing up in news feeds

                      There are lots of funny html codes that show up in the news feeds like &apos. I thought my copying was terrible until I realized all the strange codes were being sent.

                      • help me solve sound problem on iPad 2017; iPhone works fine

                        I think I'm going to love this app. Started using it on my iPad 2017 (iOS 11.1) with headphones. Worked fine. But I can't get the app to play sound through the iPad's built-in speakers. Have confirmed that the speakers work with other apps. Have reinstalled Ham Morse. Have power-cycled the iPad. Still no speaker sound.
                        The app does play sound through the speakers in my iPhone.
                        Any suggestions?

                          Hi Doug, Have you checked the mute switch on the iPad – that’s the usual culprit in this situation. I’m looking into how I can handle that better but that’s what I would check first.

                          Simon, AA9PW.

                        • There’s a problem with this app. When I go to the tax or the words, either 100 or 500, you only play for about 15 seconds and then stops. I

                          When I put it on the word or the text output, it only plays for 15 or 20 seconds and then stops. I haven’t use this app in over year and started again today hoping this bug would have been fixed. I hoped you would’ve fixed it by now.

                            Hi there,

                            Can you give me a bit more information on this. When I try this currently (iPhone 7, iOS 11.3) then it appears to play to the end of the set of words as expected. If you can tell me what you see in a bit more detail (e.g. does it play 5 words and stop, or something like that?) then I can try and reproduce the bug and fix it.

                            Many thanks,
                            Simon, AA9PW.

                          • Support split screen

                            I‘d like to have notes next to ham morse. Would allow me to type while listening.

                                    Hi there,

                                    Its likely that this is actually coming from the particular newsfeed itself, rather than from HamMorse. These types of ‘HTML Entities’ (https://www.w3schools.com/html/html_entities.asp) are quite common as a way to encode certain symbols in HTML and browsers know what to do with them, however, I suspect Ham Morse is just taking the entity’s text string from the feed and using it as it is. It would be possible to implement something that checks for these types of things and converts them back to the appropriate character. I’ll add this to the ‘to do’ list and see what I can do.

                                    Simon, AA9PW

                                  • Hi, LOVE Ham Morse Iphone App, but maybe bug.

                                    ios 10.3.3 seems to have broken Ham Morse on my Iphone.

                                    ios 10.3.3 (14G60), AT&T 28.4, Model 7Plus (NN592LL/A.

                                    Symptom = No Audio. First few times restart program or reboot phone fixed. Now even with delete and reload not working. Side note, maybe my phone because Morse Mania has same issue. Pandora works as does phone calls.

                                    Help, Please
