    If you would like a promo code for a free download of this app from Google Play, then please contact me.

    This app will train you to copy Morse code at 20 WPM using an approach very similar to the Koch method. In this app, you learn first the vowels, starting with "a", then alphabetically the letters and ordinally the numbers. As you gain more experience copying Morse code, you will begin to recognize common short strings of characters such as "CQ", "73", "TU", "HiHi" and the numerous Q-codes.

    For learning the sounds of the characters, you are presented with a game-like keypad. A character is played in Morse code, and you must tap the matching character on the keypad. Note that only the characters you have learned will be enabled. The game is very easy at first as you only have the letter "a" available to tap, but it quickly gets interesting as you progress and learn more characters. Once you gain 90% proficiency within a character set, a new character is introduced. Press and hold any alphanumeric key to hear that character in Morse code without registering a hit or miss.

    The Copy Pad is for copying strings of characters by drawing with your finger on the white canvas. You are presented with a group of random characters composed of only the characters already learned, and you can then write down the characters as you recognize them. After 3 seconds, the group of characters is displayed, the Copy Pad is cleared, and a new character set is presented. You have the option to choose the word size from 1 to 10 characters. The Copy Pad works best with shorter strings. For longer strings, pen and paper are more practical. Please note: the Copy Pad DOES NOT attempt to recognize your handwriting.

    This app also includes a straight key transmit feature. A character is played in Morse code, and you must tap out that character with the code key. You need not send at 20 WPM and should use a speed that is comfortable. For such an endeavor, an iambic key is helpful. You can choose to see the code you are tapping out or the characters you have learned. You may also turn the sound of the characters off. Additionally, you may replace the straight key image with the International Morse code chart.

    Available from Google Play or Amazon Appstore:
