Textkraft Pocket – the missing TextEdit for iOS 8
[MobilePRwire] – infovole GmbH releases a professional text editor and note taking app for Apple’s iPhone.
In March 2014 rumors were all about Apple’s iOS 8. The news predicted Apple would take the Mac OS X text editor “TextEdit” to iPad and iPhone. This didn’t happen, but now there is a perfect replacement for the missing app: Textkraft Pocket.
With 2.8 million downloads Textkraft is one of the most favorite word processors for iPad today. Now the app has been completely redesigned for the iPhone and iOS 8.
“After all the years of development, it’s still a challenge to write a few sentences on the iPhone,” says Marcel Uetzels, founder of infovole. “Constantly waiting for the text magnifying glass to appear, the complicated movement of the text selection handles and exhausting fights with the automatic spelling correction and the contextual menu. iPhone users know: Composing a message on the fly, without completely letting go the proper usage of language, is cumbersome and frustrating.”
Textkraft Pocket is the ultimate text tool, which solves all problems: The easy and precise cursor navigation, a variety of selection guides and extended built-in dictionaries with synonyms are complemented by a solid base of import and export functions, keyboard enhancements and styling options. While other apps maintain only a few key skills, Textkraft Pocket offers a broad variety of features at a high level: Importing, writing, correcting, formatting, storing and communicating.
“The experiences we’ve gained during the last four years with Textkraft for iPad, merged into the development of Textkraft Pocket,” said Uetzels. “We’ve taken many suggestions from our users and optimized existing concepts. Textkraft’s rapid memory concept, for instance, was revolutionary at the time, but always criticized because of the limited number of storages. Users can now edit many files at the same time, a simple swipe gesture switches between the documents … and you don’t even have to hide the keyboard. It can’t be any faster.”
Apart from cloud storages and local memory, Textkraft Pocket supports direct posts on Twitter, Facebook, Sina Weibo and Tencent Weibo. Users can also send texts via SMS, MMS, iMessage and e-mail, store notes on Evernote and share texts with other apps and devices. Markdown, plain text, HTML and PDF are available for export. Printing and PDF creation is facilitated with an interactive “what-you-see-is-what-you-get” preview screen.
Textkraft Pocket is now available for $3.99 / £2.49 / 3,59€ on the App Store. The app runs on all iPhones supporting iOS 7 and iOS 8.
The infovole GmbH, based in Neuss, Germany, was founded in 2011. The company focuses on the development and marketing of iPhone and iPad applications.
