You can use the six different color sliders to highlight what you want whether it be red, green, blue and even yellow. You can do a combination of colors to bring out what you really want. If you want a person to stand out you can use the mask mode and erase the color around everywhere but what you want to stay in color. for added accuracy you can zoom in to make sure you’ve got every fine tooth detail has even made.

Morse-It allows you to translate, interpret, type, learn, and convert Morse code in a way that isn’t too difficult to follow how it works. The basics is that you type something then press the translate button to show you what each letter will consist of a series of dots and dashes along with a flashing light and sound to show you how it is done or use the flashing to test someone at a certain distance from you. You can tap Morse code which will translate in text so you understand what the message is. There are many different input types that are used which are novice, straight key, memory paddle, and Iambic paddle.

There is a glossary of the letters, numbers and anything else you might need to use Morse code. This app can also decode by using the microphone to hear the series of dots and dashes. Your tapped and decoded text can be edited and exported to the clipboard to the In-app email and SMS.
