  1. sprint feature for building speed,

    similar to what is done in speed reading, running, weight lifting etc. For example - the user sets speed say to 10 wpm, the app sends at that rate for a while then plays a high pitch tone to indicate INCREASE and then for a burst of characters sends faster maybe by 10% (or selectable) and then plays a low pitch tone to indicate DECREASE and returns to original speed - thus the listener is forced to copy faster but then gets a break. This works for so many other mental and physical things but no one does it for…

      • Help! I love your app! I've used it for three nights, and I am on 3 letter Koch. I just opened the app, and there's no audio. iPhone 5.

        Please look into why this app's audio stopped working tonight. I bought it after getting iPhone 5, and it worked fine until just now. Five stars, as soon as audio works again...

          • Can play back text from own file like pages.

            Great App. Really helping me speed up my cw copy. If I could have update wish... Be able to play file of own words, QSO, etc. input from pages/word/notepad file. solves several other inputs to extend word lists, etc. if you can link to press articles, can this extend to own file on iPad?

                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.

              • Great ap, it will teach you code! The struggle is adapting to different styles you encounter in real qsos.

                Add variations in style. Example, code sent from a bug, straight key, paddles, all sounds a bit different. This ap is probably as good as software can get, and will get you good enough to get on the air in weeks, but will not prepare you for the "human" element of code (most on air isnt perfect computer generated) and the qrm and qrn you will encounter.

                  • Allow the app to run in the background.

                    I like to listen to morse code apps with the phone in my pocket with earbuds but this app requires it to be on and open meaning the phone must be set down in a way they the screen isn't touched.

                    • Speak

                      It would be nice to have the letter spoken so I can practice without being near the iPad. I tried 20 years ago to learn morse but was doing the double convention. I think having the option to say the letter would help a lot

                        • Incorporate a Keyboard Copy Option

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

                          • Character and effective speed control

                            Like on www.lcwo.net implement Character and effective speed control.
                            This way charcters can be learned on high speed and "taking" can be learned at lower speed.

                            • words/ham abbreviations/call sign sessions with limited characters as you progress with Koch method.

                              not sure how easy this would be to include but I feel it would be useful to have a word/callsign session with limited characters to practice as you start to get proficient at chosen koch speed. i think it could be done at about 10 characters on. as enough words/ham abbreviations would be available with the limited characters. it would help progression to hearing words like THE, FER, TKS, SO, HW?, QTH, NAME, OP,etc.
                              The filter is useful, but lots of gaps, so it doesn't help hearing common word or ham abbreviations.

                                    • add text entry and comparison for Koch

                                      I may be missing it but I can't see any way to type in the characters that are being played and then compare what I copied to what has been received. I thought that was fundamental to Koch - adding a new character when your copy rate is regularly at 90% +. This seems to be a major and obvious omission to me (unless there really is a way to do it and I'm missing it).

                                      • iMorseCode--another app--was also working yesterday, and now is not.

                                        It also opens, but does not have sound. (Both apps worked fine last night.)

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