iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Do you like writing IN ALL CAPS LIKE THIS? Maybe you enjoy chatting with your friends in 1337 5p3@k. What if there was a way to transform text using cool effects instead of taking forever to write it that way yourself? Have no fear, the perfect app for such a task is here!
MyTexT Free, developed by Luca Rubin, whose full name is actually “MyTexT Free for WhatsApp Messenger, Line, Skype, Facebook, Twitter and Weibo”, is a must-have text editor for anyone who likes to deviate from standard writing formats. With the quick touch of a button you can transform a sentence or paragraph into something completely different.
Concept and Functionality:
As someone who does quite a bit of writing on a daily basis, I love tools that tend to make the task easier. MyTexT Free is designed to allow you to add cool effects to your text with a single touch of a button, meaning you spend less time altering words to suit your needs. While the app isn’t necessarily needed for doing something like writing in capital letters, a finicky text language like leet speak can take a tremendously long time to do, especially if you’re on a mobile device like an iPhone or iPad.
To transform text, simply open MyTexT Free and tap inside the text box. Once you’re finished writing, press the Done button and navigate to the Effects menu. The free version of the app only includes the all caps and leet speak effects. Once you’ve made your selection you can choose to preview the effect or apply it right away.
The last step is to share your creation with the world! You can do so by either selecting the transformed text and cutting or copying it, or you can use MyTexT Free’s built-in export menu. You can use this menu to export text to a new email, SMS message, tweet, or Skype IM. You can also print text.
MyTexT Free is a unique app in the sense that it does what it says without the glamorous fluff or unnecessary features of other apps. Very rarely can an app be classified as simple and still be pleasing to use. Even though this particular app isn’t stuffed with features, it still accomplishes what it was designed to do, which is to allow users to customize text with the tap of a button.
To compare and contrast with the paid version of MyTexT, I do want to say that the free version is really just the tip of the iceberg as far as what the app is capable of. I do wish there were a few more effects available instead of all caps and leet speak. Having tried both the free and paid version, I can honestly say that I’d buy the paid version in a heartbeat.
MyTexT Free doesn’t cost anything to download, but there are a few in-app purchases that are available, such as disabling ads and unlocking more text effects. You can choose to disable ads for $0.99, unlock all effects for $0.99, or skip the individual purchases and grab the paid version of MyTexT for $1.99. Also, both apps are universally compatible with both iPhone and iPad. Personally I recommend the paid version because the variety of text effects is astounding and the app works extremely well.
MyTexT Free is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
