I’ve taken a look at numerous text word/text processors for the iPad and the majority of them show up quite short. Pages, as an example, appears more of a “produce quite files” app than a durable text processor.
Textkraft (US$ 3.99) is most likely the app you long for. It’s effective, easy to use and supplies a composing environment you can do genuine operate in.
Here are a few of the leading functions I discovered appealing:
- You can deal with as much as 5 files at the same time, changing in between them with a tap.
- Cursor secrets support, something doing not have in the Apple options
- Total undo/redo
- Complete search and change
- Assistance for external Bluetooth keyboards
- Import and export with Dropbox, iCloud, Box and iTunes file sharing
- Showing Pages and Evernote
- There’s more, so inspect the app’s site or the App Store description.
Utilizing the app is straightforward, however as I initially began to type, I was shocked by a huge mid-screen display screen of words in boxes that alters as I typed. The app was recommending other words I might utilize, inspecting spelling and offering alternates. There are great deals of tips. It’s effective, however I discovered it disruptive. Gladly, the function can be concealed.
I believe the function I’m most delighted with is the cursor secrets. There’s no more adjusting stabbing my finger on the screen and aiming to move the cursor to the right position. Textkraft likewise offers delete-forward, something missing on the stock iOS keyboard, and a secret that I utilize all the time.
Files can be password-protected, and export supports text, Markdown, PDF and HTML (e-mail). I checked printing, and it worked wirelessly to my AirPrint-equipped printer.
The app operates in landscape or picture mode. While I’m a landscape junky, I liked utilizing Textkraft in picture mode due to the method the screen is arranged.
While there are 10 font styles to pick from along with complete strong, italics and highlighting, this is not an app for placing photos or doing page design. It is, without a doubt, a really effective full-screen editor for when you wish to do genuine work.
There simply does not appear to be much missing out on from this app. I would like for it to import and export Word files straight, however you need to utilize the Word-to-text converter app the very same designer offers $1.99. I believe that capability ought to be developed into Textkraft.
Aside from that caution, the app is total as it is, however there is an in-app purchase for more text designs for $1.99. I didn’t feel I required them.
If you wish to get a feel for the app, download the totally free Easy Writer Lite. It will provide you a concept of the GUI and how the operations is developed.
Textkraft is a really gratifying text processor for the iPad. It’s fairly priced, and I saw no bugs or crashes while utilizing it greatly.
Textraft needs iOS 5.1 or later on, and is iPad just. It’s a 24 MB download.
