Review: Textkraft

We found a cool text editor app for iPad this week from the German developer Infovole GimbH. This iPad app is called Textkraft and is a smart text processor app that we tested on our iPad 2 device. This best iPad app allows you to transform your iPad into typewriter for on-the-go work. You can compose just about any size of text content from a quick Facebook status update to a large legal document.

Textkraft app for iPad offers users both a complete work solution, as well as a smooth interface for writing quick grammatically correct bursts of text. As I write this blog review I’m using the Textkraft app and it is a joy to use and I especially like the spelling aid that quickly advises me.

The list of outstanding features of Textkraft include:  (screenshots and video demo after break)

•Dynamic and sensitive spelling aid. No looking-up and no interruption within the writing flow. It identifies the right words, just the way you pronounce them.
•Cursor keys better than on a real keyboard. 8 keys with 10 functions.

•Quick selection-marker for word, sentence and paragraph without bustle or finger fractures.
•Undo/Redo- and history-function to test various phrasings.
•Upper and lower case can be switched by keystroke.
• Dropbox integration: Synchronize documents on all your devices.
• Text import from Macintosh, Linux and Windows.
• Text import from other iPad Apps, such as opening a text from mail-attachments.
• Text export via clipboard, e-mail, and immediate transfer to other iPad Apps.
• Direct printing with iPad. AirPrint™ compatible as from iOS 4.2.
• 9 typefaces at choice and freely selectable text size.
• Wide ranged text information, such as page and word count, as well as file size.
• Standard iPad auto correction can be disabled.
• Reading mode prevents accidental keyboard entries.

If you like to write and pretty much do everything on your iPad 2 then I think you’ll find this app for iPad a great companion for all your writing needs. They’ve done a thoughtful job of designing Textkraft so it integrates with all the apps I use on a daily basis including Dropbox.
The Textkrapt iPad app is available for a limited time for $3.99 (normally $5.99) on the app store.

Been an iPad user from day one of its release. Apple has been innovative from the beginning and now the rest of the world is getting on board. It's great to be able to spread the word about one of their mobile devices.
