Apps like Textkraft Pocket, from Infovole, are a rare breed. These apps are so damn comprehensive that they beg to be used by a desktop counterpart, and the fact that they’re designed and driven toward iOS is simply mind boggling.
Textkraft Pocket is truly a stellar accomplishment. Weighing in at under 30MB and boasting 16 International dictionaries, this app can take you from a writing amateur to veteran in weeks flat.
Whether you write for a living, simply take notes occasionally, or anything in-between, Textkraft is a must.
We’re blown away by the amount of features that are packed into this tiny little app. Given all it delivers, it certainly deserves a few bucks, if not more.
If you’ve ever taken notes via Evernote or the inherent “Notes” app included in your iOS device, you may have notice that they’re lacking when it comes to overall functionality. Sure, these apps let you write, but you sure won’t be drafting a manuscript or working to publish a draft on those apps.
Textkraft is different, it very likely has everything your word processor currently has, if not more.
Some of the best and most notable features are as follows: the ability to work with multiple documents by swiping, the ability to select words, sentences and phrases through tapping, placing your cursor via touchscreen, inserting quotation marks or brackets via abbreviated gestures, undo/redo to your hearts content, and hop between 16 (offline) dictionaries to utilize your language of choice!
These languages range from Dansk, Deutsch, English Español, Français, Italiano, Nederlands, Português, Svenska, Türkçe, and more, while including regional dialogue and nuance.
Most impressively, and fully utilizing iOS 7/8 functionality, words can be dictated directly into the app by utilizing Siri. Imagine a flawless combination of oral dictation and touchscreen editing, and you’ve got the ability to churn out a truly significant amount of content via Textkraft.
There are many more features to describe, but we recommend you download and explore.
Concept and Functionality:
The app is impossibly light, extremely quick, and somehow makes writing a breeze. Without having to cram words into a tiny space or worry about misspellings, Textkraft quickly becomes like your own personal editor, helping you to achieve profound content in minutes flat.
While it can’t get your great American novel published, it can actually make you far more efficient while writing it.
In general, the app was quick, never froze or crashed, and also displays an aesthetically brilliant logo and clean, sexy display. If you couldn’t tell by now, our accolades are definitely going out to this app and its developers.
Sure the app might cost a little bit more than usual, but this one is without a doubt worth every penny. With rave reviews soaring across the App Store, if you do even just a fair amount of writing, you’ll soon find this app indispensable. If you’ve ever thought you would benefit from having a full blown word processor in your pocket, Textkraft is your one stop shop to do so.
Textkraft Pocket requires iOS 7.1 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
