    • Remember last settings

      It seems that the application does not remember the practice/rss settings. Could you store this between sessions?

      • Add'l plain text options-with interesting material. Full RSS articles, ARRL Bulletins/CW Practice?

        I'm getting more proficient and benefiting from the common words feature. But get bored listening to random words and RSS headlines. How about a way to get more news and articles of interest via morse code?

        • Add a morse reference chart, possibily tied into to turning character groups on and off.

          There should be a morse code reference chart included in the app. it would be good if it was integrated with selecting character groups, so you can see why the character groups are assigned the way they are.

          • Battery saving idea...

            Could you consider a switch to turn off the screen? I do not need it whilst I am copying text and when I leave it running 'words' as I drop off to sleep I wake up with it lighting up the room :-)

              Hi Paul, the problem I found was that when the screen goes to sleep the audio timing started to go completely off and the code becomes unreadable. To fix this I had to make the app turn off the auto sleep feature you would get with a normal app. I agree its not a great solution for battery life. I will at least try and see if I can have it act normally when its not playing code, that way it should turn off the screen and go to sleep a little while after the code is done playing.

            • You can't enter your own text?!

              I guess I just wasted $5. More people would buy this if you could enter your own text and have it sound out in Morse Code. Yes, I understand this is a learning tool, but it would be fun to have a simple text to tone generator.

              • Number of letters scroll bar

                I would appreciate being able to pick the number of letters given instead of simply groups. I find it easy to get overwhelmed by a large group of new letters. Maybe a scroll bar for the amount of letters as an option that would go sequentially through the groups you already have established. Once I have the characters learnt I would find the groups more useful to practice problem area's. Keep up the good work!

                • Add a "user's choice" RSS feed

                  On the setup page, have an entry box for a user to enter their personal RSS choice. On the left hand side "selector knob", add a corresponding selection on the knob that would choose the user's RSS choice they entered on the setup page box.

                      I would welcome thoughts on how this might work. It seems to me that you could do this by having the keyboard appear so you could type along to copy the code as it is played. This could conceivably be scored in real time or after the fact to give some feedback on your copying skills.

                      My hesitation for this is that given the tendency for iPhone typing to be not quite as precise as typing on a keyboard plus the autocorrection features, I wonder if the typing would be the slow step, as compared to your ability to copy the code…? At least if you are writing on paper then you are much less likely to mis-type or get ‘incorrectly autocorrected’.

                      I could see this working for shorter passages of text or individual letters, however. I would welcome ideas and thoughts on how best to do something like this.

                    • Allow people to practice sending code as well as receiving

                      It would be nice to be able to have a way to practice sending code - tapping on the screen to simulate the key

                            • Fix sound bug

                              IEvery so often it will stop making a sound. It seems like it’s when I do use the Bluetooth device on the phone but even when you stop the Bluetooth device somehow he forgets how to connect to the speaker. Eventually it seem to reset itself but I’m not sure how even when I totally close the app off and restart the phone.

                              • Repeat call signs, names and Qths in QSO mode since this is done in actual QSOs.

                                In QSO mode, this information is only given once. It makes trying to learn head copy more difficult. As stated before, in actual QSOs, this information is almost always repeated.
