      As one of the posters pointed out, there is a bug with the QSO and the personalization option. The app will crash if you have not replaced the default ‘undefined’ Name and callsign with something else.

      I am working on getting this cleared up but for now, filling in the name and callsign fields with any value will solve the problem.

    • More words

      I would like more words added to the list. Many are very short. Another 500 would be great! Add ham words too, like antenna, rig, kenwood, etc. Or, allow the user to add words to the list.

              Hi Ed, Thanks for the bug report. I am aware of the bug and I am working on it right now. There is a simple fix in the meantime – simply enter your name and a call sign (or any other text) into the Personalization Settings section on the Settings page.

              Clearly the app should work correctly even if you don’t enter something here and I thought that I had that taken care of but I must have missed something. Give the fix a try and let me know how you get on, in the meantime I’m working on getting things fixed up here.

              Many thanks,

              Simon, AA9PW

            • Learning booster mode

              Add operation mode whereby the app leaves a blank space to allow the operator to key in with a real key, at speed, the character or group just heard. In addition to the send practice drill, I believe this will also improve the ability to recognize a new character in Koch mode for example. 73!

                • Display bug found

                  I am practicing at Char WPM: 20. I found that for Speed >= 16 I copy 125 characters but only 124 are displayed. The very last character is not displayed.

                  • What is the equal sign for?

                    I admit I'm just starting out, but it throws me every time I hear it and I have to start over.

                      • Add support for accented characters - like äöå.

                        Many European languages have these, would be nice for completeness' sake.

                        • Select code lesson length in minutes

                          It would be nice to be able to select the code run lengths in minutes. i.e. each koch lesson need not be 5 minutes. Maybe I feel like only copying 1 or 2 minutes. (Yes, I can pause it and move to the next lesson but why not...)

                          • Which one is the new letter

                            When we add a letter in the koch method the runs now include the new letter. But we haven't had a chance to learn it yet. It would be nice to allow a minute or more of the single letter so that we can get used to hgearing it before doing 5 minutes of random text with the new letter.

                              Hi Dave, This sounds like a great idea.

                              I had some thoughts on how we could do this:

                              • When you push the [+] button I could have the app pop up an alert asking if you would like to add a run of the new letter to the start of your next practice session.
                              • Alternatively (or in addition) I could have this be on the Settings page so you could set this to happen automatically when you add a new letter, this would save you from having to respond to an alert.

                              I was also wondering if it would be worth temporarily increasing the frequency at which the new letter appears in the random text. This would show you the new letter more often for a while, then it would go back to appearing at random along with the other letters in your practice set.

                                    Hi Rob,

                                    The app is currently configured to prevent the phone from going to sleep and this should mean that the auto lock doesn’t come on, however, clearly this isnt working as anticipated in this case. Let me look into this and see what I can do.

                                    Simon.

                                  • read email

                                    add the option to read/send emails or stored song lyrics hey any added text to send would be great.
