iPad App Press Release by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

January 16, 2015 – Neuss, Germany Infovole GmbH has updated Textkraft Pro, a word processor for Apple’s iPad tablet that’s incredibly feature-rich and goes well above and beyond what’s expected of a mobile word processor. Professional writers, students, and anyone who wants to use the iPad for writing, will be thrilled with Textkraft Pro.

textkraft pro ss1Textkraft Pro takes word processing on the iPad tablet to a new level by being very well organized, very intuitive, and most of all, very fluid for the user. The UI is outstanding and, by being both powerful and well designed, enables the user to focus on writing, not the app.

There are myriad ways, both large and small, that make this word processor truly shine above the competition. From offering all the premium features and 16 dictionaries (including four that are extended with thesaurus) without additional charges, to providing a forward-delete button that discards the character ahead of the cursor’s position, just like on a PC, to seamlessly integrating with iCloud. This app does it all.

The latest update adds numerous enhancements to an already highly regarded app. The current version features key improvements such as a toolbar optimized for fast writers, detailed text information, color themes including a night mode, an extended “éüç” function that sets diacritical marks and umlauts automatically and offers keys for all dicritical signs and umlauts, and finally the determination of the “Flesch Reading Ease” readability index.

Marcel Uetzels, CEO of Infovole, states “The Textkraft writing apps are equipped with outstanding features, such as offline dictionaries, synonyms, WYSIWYG print dialogs, PDF export, and tons of import and export options. However, the thoughtful editing tools make the apps even more special, since they make writing on the iPad and iPhone much more comfortable.”

A recent review of Textkraft Pro by TheiPhoneAppReview gave the app their top rating of 5 out of 5 stars and wrote, “With a price tag of $9.99, Textkraft Pro might seem a bit out of your price range. However, I can assure you that the app provides an incredible writing experience that surpasses all other text editors for iPad.” [Editor’s note: the price of the app is $7.99 for a limited time]

For those writers who are not convinced that Textkraft Pro is the best iPad app for their writing needs, Textkraft Lite is now available as a free download with some professional features disabled.

Textkraft Pro is available to download from the App Store for $7.99 during the current promotion and is designed for iPad.

iPad App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

I’m always excited to try a new writing app, mainly because I use my iPad quite a bit for writing app reviews. Most of the time it provides a distraction free writing environment. However, I always had trouble finding the ideal word processing app that suited my needs. Until now, that is.

Textkraft Pro definitely isn’t a lightweight writing app. Developed by Infovole, this incredibly feature-rich app goes well above and beyond what’s expected of a mobile word processor.

Concept and Functionality:

When I try out a new writing app, there are a few specific things I look for. First, the app has to be very intuitive and fluid. What’s the point of using it if you have to spend half of your writing time navigating the app? Textkraft Pro is very intuitive, and I had no issues with creating a new document and getting right to work.

Next, I look for a clean and organized work area. Some word processor apps make it a point to give users access to every single feature in the composition area, which leads to a very cluttered interface.

Textkraft Pro is very well organized, and once you get the hang of where everything is and what each button represents, you’ll have no issue quickly finding the tool you need.

It’s worth mentioning that Textkraft Pro underwent a massive overhaul in version 3, and the app was essentially rebuilt from the ground up. This includes updated offline dictionary support and better text selection features. From what I can tell, the improvements made all the difference, as this is a truly incredible writing app.

Unlike comparable word processor apps, Textkraft Pro focuses mostly on the process of finding the right words and using handy editing tools to string your thoughts together easily.

Features:

Listing every single feature in Textkraft Pro would be a monumental endeavor, but there are a few which are certainly noteworthy. First, I find that the built-in dictionary and thesaurus is fantastic. In the past, I’ve had to resort to a dedicated app for word research. Plus, these tools are available offline.

Another awesome feature is the text select tool in the toolbar, which allows you to easily select a word, sentence, or a paragraph with the touch of a button. Alas, no more precision text selection! This feature alone saves a ton of time.

There’s also a text selection slider, which makes it very easy to select small bits of text without using your fingers and the on-screen magnifier.

Value:

With a price tag of $9.99, Textkraft Pro might seem a bit out of your price range. However, I can assure you that the app provides an incredible writing experience that surpasses all other text editors for iPad.

If you’re a serious writer, $9.99 is a small price to pay for a tool that will help you with all of your writing endeavors. It’s my new go-to writing app for my review work, and I’m sure it’ll be your favorite writing app, as well.

For iPhone users, there’s Textkraft Pocket, which TheiPhoneAppReview wrote about in October, 2014. It’s available on the App Store for $3.99.

Textkraft Protextkraft_pro.jpg requires iOS 7.1 or later and is compatible with iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.

The Progressive Jiffies App is a Successful Nod Toward Wearable Tech

Jiffies – The reinvention of the clock
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Review by Adam Itkoff

Review by Adam Itkoff

The times they are a changing. With the anticipated release of the Apple Watch coming this year, and CES 2015 creating quite a buzz in Vegas and across the web, everyone is looking at the App marketplace to keep up with evolving wearable hardware.

Now, Jiffies, from Diethard Seiferth, is poised to capitalize on the impending evolution of tech and specifically, “wearable tech”.

The developers set out to answer an important question: where is technology going and what is the most fluid and progressive method for incorporating it into our daily life? If it’s the Apple Watch, then what would make this item most useful on a day to day basis?

Jiffies was designed specifically to make your life more efficient, by creating a more fluent and fluid calendar, and succeeds in spades.

While the task seems simple, it’s not. Jiffies does an excellent job of bringing the functionality of the calendar to the size of a watch. It’s an interesting statement of modern ergonomic design and anticipates new developments in wearable tech.

Features:

The app will cost just under $3.00 off the bat, and will need to access your contacts to get up to speed. We’d like to see an optional sync with the “Sunshine” calendar app as well (or Facebook), as this app is used heavily and already imports Facebook events and birthdays, which are the most abundant source of contact details for many.

Most importantly, the app boasts a dual interface, displaying two circles, one inner and one outer. One represents AM, and one represents PM, but the display is wrapped around in a forward thinking interface.

Jiffies intends to maximize efficiency by doing so, and save you the hassle of thumbing through days and dates in your standard calendar app.

Concept and Functionality:

The app is easy to get used to, and is ultimately a successfully constructed experiment on iOS. We’d like to see it rolled out with different styles and customizable aesthetic templates to help users find their voice within the app, but the native display is clean in itself.

There’s room to grow, but the app has already accomplished a great deal. It also boasts a quick download, and no bugs or forced shutdowns.

Value:

This app could easily become part of Apple’s native calendar interface if it were to be adapted by the right people at the right time.

It’s forward thinking design justifies the price tag, and we’re excited by this app and it’s implications in progressive wearable tech.

Stormfrall: Rise of Balur, from Plarium Global Ltd, makes MMO style gaming easy and accessible on the iPhone.

But don’t think just because it’s an easy way to get into the genre that it’s shallow. Stormfall will keep even the most veteran of genre vets busy.

With hundreds upon hundreds of possible unit, skill and attack possibilities, there’s almost no end to the strategy fun.

Plus, the developers have included a plethora of other standards to keep you engaged with the community.

The bottom line is that if you enjoy MMO gaming then you owe it to yourself to download this free gem of a game. We highly recommend it!

Challenge Your Friends with Sparker’s Games

Sparker
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Sparker, a game from Spinapse, Inc., describes itself as the “Game of Games”, which is accurate since it’s not just one game. Sparker is a unique game offering its users many different games all in one convenient location.

Features:

What’s so cool about Sparker is how it differs from most other game apps. It’s actually a collection of 11 games rather than a single game itself, with the app developers promising to add more games, challenges, and bombs.

Additionally, each game features various levels, and these levels increase the variation of the challenges presented through Sparker as well.

However, perhaps one of the most interesting features of Sparker is the social aspect that the game features; players of this app are encouraged to challenge their friends to different games within the app, thereby creating a fun, competitive playing environment.

Additionally, it is worthwhile to note that each Sparker challenge/game is designed to be played in a less than a minute, allowing players to rally back and forth fairly quickly and not get bogged down in one long competition.

Overall, while I found the games within Sparker to be entertaining, I was disappointed to find that use of the app required that I first sign up through my Facebook account.

Sparker iPhone Game

While doing so was not a problem for me, anyone without a Facebook account (or anyone simply not wanting to link their two accounts) would probably be a bit frustrated with this requirement. We suggest allowing registration using an email address.

Appearance and Layout:

Sparker is an app that is well designed and simple to use. That coupled with the short duration of each game makes it something that you can easily pick up an play whenever you have a bit of downtime.

Finding new games to play is easy to do, and challenging friends is also easily accomplished. Graphics within the app are clean and simple, and I really appreciated the little details that were included throughout the various challenges that gave a feeling of continuity to the games.

For example, even though the games change, the little illustrations at the bottom of the screens stay similarly themed throughout the app.

Value:

As a whole, as long as you don’t mind using your Facebook account to login, Sparker is definitely a good value for its price (free). The games are quick, the challenges are fairly simple yet still entertaining, and the graphics are pleasant to look at. Plus, if you do connect with your friends it can be quite a bit of fun.

Additionally, I really appreciated the degree to which the challenges in the app can be personalized.

However, at the same time, I would have found Sparker to be a more appealing app if creating an account didn’t have to be linked to my Facebook account.

Call Levels – Simple Financial Market Alert Tool
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Review by Adam Itkoff

Review by Adam Itkoff

Everybody is looking for a smarter way to keep track of, and even increase their awareness of, what goes on in the financial world.

If you’re accustomed to tuning in to NPR’s marketplace or Bloomberg Radio and checking your native stock-ticker app repeatedly throughout the day, we may have a better alternative.

Call Levels, from Call Levels Pte. Ltd., brings a refreshingly simple approach to keeping track of Forex and Commodities markets, an activity that is typically complicated and requires constant upkeep.

Download the app, create an account and verify your email address. Then, login and select your financial asset of choice. Slide a meter to the desired level (positive or negative) and get immediate alerts on your mobile device if the price is hit.

We especially love that this app provides real-time data to users and their friends for up to the second information, free of charge! Say goodbye to 15 minute delays or paying extra for real-time financial data.

Features:

For newbies, the app does a great job of breaking down some complicated information into the easiest possible terms.

It boasts a clear and succinctly labeled interface to help you navigate and delivers a wide array of asset categories for you to choose from. It even allows you to add your friends email to your notifications watch list so that they’ll be hit with the same real-time updates that you are.

Currently the watch list of the app is as follows: Forex (foreign exchange) and Commodities (Precious Metals). They claim that Equities and Indices, Other Commodities, and Customized Market Snapshots will be added soon. We hope they don’t take too long since these features will no doubt be important to many users.

With only the ability to keep track of Forex and Commodities the appeal of this app will be somewhat limited, but for those who track those markets, this app will be very useful.

Concept and Functionality:

For anyone who is interested in Forex or Commodities this app brings a lot to the table and shows how keeping track of equities and other commodities will be just as simple.

If you’re new to the game, you may have trouble understanding the layout or the indexes being measured, but this app will help you move forward and learn more about this all important field.

For those in a learning mode, you may just want to download this app as a little helper. Between reading a few basic articles and playing within the app, you may be able to get a feel for a slice of the financial world that you don’t know too much about, and be a bit less daunted by the nuances of it.

Overall Value:

All in all, this app breaks down extremely complicated markets into easy to watch lists, and offers plenty of value to the user for no cost, which is a good first lesson in finance right off the bat.

So, whether you’re a seasoned stock broker or are just looking to learn a little bit more, Call Levels is definitely worth a download.
