What are users saying about Office HD: TextMaker BASIC

by U####:

I'm startled by how capable this is. Even without a macro language, keyboard remapping and styles enabled me to recreate customizations I've added to my PC word processor with AutoHotKey - so I can use the same keystrokes on both platforms, no learning curve. Now I'll be leaving my notebook at home more often, writing on my phone using this with a Bluetooth keyboard.

by V####:

Can't save a document. I replied to your email with the information of my tablet. I installed it in a Windows XP computer and will do it in a Windows 10 one. I will be playing with it in the Windows computers meanwhile.

by D####:

No way to work with such tiny font. Uninstalling.

by W####:

People use it for novels, such as myself would find it useful.. Consider adding it

by Z####:

Hard press on word to select before copy brings up a file menu.

by A####:

Good one.

by R####:

I had initially written this off when it first came out for Android but am I glad to have given it another look. This is as impressive on Android now as the old CE .NET version on my old Psion Netbook was. Great work guys!

by J####:

Big up

by F####:

Thx, excellent to receive reply. - edit: When exporting to epub, images aren't getting placed right, and show no image. Is there a specific size limit, for jpg or png. Is there a tag, ref, frame or other formatting I'm missing for export, from htm or rtf. Converting from exported pdf to epub works ok with ePUBator but it messes up the Contents/Chapter formatting. Thinking upgrading to full if necessary. Keeps not keeping dictionary downloads for spelling.

by C####:

After trying four other apps I finally found one that will allow me to edit and save rtf files. I am a happy camper!

by E####:

Is the label printable

by N####:

best my app

by B####:

Thx, excellent to receive reply. - Wonder would it ever be possible to edit or open epub with textmaker, would be perfect to fix all the various errors in my epubs, to correct them for better txt-to-speech reading.

by Q####:

With the in-app purchase, this is the same as the separately listed Full version. Easily the most feature-rich word processor on mobile, nearly identical to the one in the excellent SoftMaker desktop suite. The UI almost demands a hard keyboard for serious writing, but I expect many will use the app more for review and revision, with no fear of losing formatting applied on the desktop.
