THE CONCEPT:
Define as many banner texts as you like. Besides your own texts iTicker can show - well more or less - useful information like 100 digits of PI, the Morse alphabet, 1 to 10 in 26 different languages or parts of the Human DNA code (one of the most expensive texts in human history by the way). Learn them quite simple - along the way.

THE DISPLAY:
As display standard fonts and transparent "dot masks" are used. In contrast to LED simulations they offer a lot more facilities. You can choose dots and lines in many different sizes and gaps. If you use no mask you see the pure font. A mask with hearts as dots is ideal for special events and textes...

SMOOOOOTH SCROLLING:
This display technique results in smooth (choose 1 to 20 pixel) and fast (delay 1 to 20) scrolling and a free choice of color and brightness for both text and foreground.

PROPERTIES:
- Very smooth scrolling - from 1 to 20 pixel per clock pulse.
- Choose speed (1 to 20) and delay (1 to 20) as you like.
- Works in portrait and landscape mode.
- Single tap starts/stops the ticker.
- Select color and brightness for text and background.
- Choose from a variety of stencils to simulate pixels.
- 19 different masks included - more to come in the future.
- Use all fonts your iPhone offers (52 at the moment).
- Define text position and font size intuitively via dragging and pinching/spreading the text.
- Settings are stored on exit of course.

SETUP ON/OFF SWITCHES:
- Auto Lock: Prevent the iPhone from sleep mode.
- Rotation: Switch off rotation if you don't like that.
- Status Bar: Full screen display as option.
- Date/Time: Define the bottom line's format at will.

FREE TEXT FEATURES:
- Define, reuse and copy as many texts as you like. No limitation in length!
- Use nice symbols for polishing (arrows, office, weather, business, game - "heart" included).
- A configurable date & time text shown as bottom line and/or scrolling text.

10 DIFFERENT INFO TEXTS:
- PI (yes, it starts with 3.141 - but how it goes on...?).
- e (the first 200 digits of Euler's constant).
- Prime numbers from 1 to 997.
- 100 Random numbers (originally created by your iPhone).
- Numbers 1-10 in 26 different languages.
- Some Fibounacci numbers - a really interesting sequence f(n) = f(n-1) + f(n-2).
- First 100 square numbers x * x.
- First 100 cube numbers x * x * x.
- DNA Code - learn more about the building blocks of our life.
- Morse Code - get to know the Morse alphabet (including "@").
- More in future releases...
