New Textkraft update for the iPhone

Textkraft Pocket @ App Store

Textkraft Pocket for iPhone is available in the heavily revised version 1.1. The update provides many improvements and some corrections. Here are the most important facts about it:

Textkraft Pocket is now optimized for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

More work space for your text: Textkraft Pocket on an iPhone 6 Plus, before and after the update. Both screen shots present the same text in 16px font size on the new sepia color theme. The cursor navigation offers additional functions. – Tap the image to enlarge it!

It provides more pixels, more work space, more functions and sharper typeface and graphics. In addition we included a text statistics module for the new iPhones and extended cursor navigation controls for the iPhone 6 Plus.

The text statistic function is counting words, sentences, paragraphs and pages and offers many more information as file size or average chapter/sentence length. The determination of the "Flesch Reading Ease" readability index marks another highlight. The index informs about the comprehensibility of your text.

The improved cursor navigation offers more choices to navigate easily and fast through texts. Jump to the line above or below, move the cursor step-by-step with just a keypress or quickly jump to the beginning or end of the text.

The following changes are available to all iPhone models:

  • The iPhone version of Textkraft offers more font sizes, which can easily be adjusted with a pinch gesture directly on your text.

  • Additional color themes: Besides the bright iOS 8 user interface, a Night Mode and a Sepia theme are now included. Both themes are less dazzling and allow a longer and less exhausting writing process.

  • The highly improved VoiceOver support now allows to trigger all operations of Textkraft and offers helpful comments for a better orientation. (We are interested in feedback from users who are dependent on VoiceOver. Please write us!)

  • The Textkraft start page, on which we communicate news, tips and warnings and offer access to our support pages and social networks, can now be closed.

  • The preview function now opens image formats as working model. Available formats are: png, jpg, jpeg, bmp, gif, tiff and tga.

  • The bracket function selects the current sentence automatically – if you do not define your own selection – and places quotes and brackets arount it. – Tap the image to enlarge it!
