Is that one of Google's jokes?

I'd love it, but it may be a joke...

I've done mobile CW for decades ( copy in my head ) and would be willing to try it with my phone.  Play my texts in Morse so that I can hear it through my car speakers and let me tap a return message.  Eyes on the road -

I personally like the idea. I never could get use to those little key pads. But I think it would have a very limited audience and probably not worth the design time. Especially the part about sending email to two different recipients at a time. Now that's a stretch. I also noticed that there wasn't any sound from the phone. Just a lot of fingers flying around. Wouldn't they want to demonstrate that?

In the end, all it would do is bring up a new crop of users that would complain about having to learn CW just to use the application. I thought we got past that.

Sorry folks, it's not a joke. Here's the Play Store link to download the app.

Way back in the 1990s Nokia had the text alert that was ... -- ..., and the "long and loud" ringtone was "connecting people" in morse code. Personally I'd love to have text messages read to me in code, it would help me practice.
