RollerText allows the user to use their iPad as a virtual teleprompter in such a way that a body of text will appear letter by letter. So it's a good choice for those who use an iPad to make a quick presentation, who need a body of text to read that will appear letter by letter gradually. It can also be a good iOS application for little children who have just started learning how to read and need some reading device for assistance.
RollerText is designed in a way such that you can set your own body of text, controlling the speed at which it appears, setting text color, text size, background color and text font. You can also set a count down timer in order to delay in text appearance. Moreover, RollerText lets you save documents. So it'll be just a click away from selecting a body of text to roll from a popover window.
// Features //
1. Set text font, text size (8 to 150 pts), text color (216 colors to choose from), background color, text speed.
2. Use Auto scroll to let RollerText automatically scroll text vertically. (The Auto-scroll feature may not be effective when the text speed value is set to 8 or higher.)
3. Save documents with titles. Then select one to use as a body of text to scroll with just a click on a button.
4. Use a count-down timer to delay text appearance.
5. A built-in quick user's guide (Preferences > Help) is available on top of access to an online complete user's guide.
// Limitations //
1. The user can only select font color and background color out of the built-in color palette covering 216 colors.
2. A text size must be set between 8 and 150 points.
3. A body of text to scroll must have at least 10 letters.
4. The maximum delay is 60 seconds.
5. RollerText does not allow the user to open text files per se. They can paste a body of clipboard text into the text field. A couple of suggestions are the following. 1) Set up an e-mail address with your iPad. E-mail yourself with a body of text that you want to scroll with RollerText. Then open e-mail and copy text into clipboard. Finally, tap the Paste button on RollerText. 2) Upload a text file onto a web server. Then access it with a web browser. Then copy a body of text into the clipboard.
