How to send e-text like a kid.
There are two basic ways to send electronic snappy
chat. You can add the text you have created in Fat Cat Snappy Chat
to another application, or you can send text more directly from Fat
Cat Snappy Chat itself.
1) Pasting quips, call outs, and wisecracks into
another app: Everything in the Snappy Chat textbox is automatically
put into your device's pasteboard, so you can paste it into any other
app that takes text. However, pasting does not clear the pasteboard
or the Snappy Chat textbox.
2) Clearing the textbox: A two-fingered tap
on the Snappy Chat text box will clear it. You can also tap the gear
icon and then tap "Clear display".
3) Adding additional comments and wisecracks to
the textbox: A one-fingered tap on the text box will bring up
a keyboard. This way you can add words, phrases, or punctuation before
pasting or sending a message. However, these additional words and
phrases will not be spoken aloud. (Fat Cat Snappy
Chat does not include a text-to-speech engine.)
4) Sending text "directly" from Snappy Chat:
To send the contents of the textbox, just tap the send button. (The
send button is part of both the regular interface and the keyboard
interface.) Then choose where you want to send the text. You can send
it as a Tweet, E-mail, Instant Message, or Text/SMS or you
can send it to another Fat Cat Chat app for additional text. Fat Cat
Snappy Chat will automatically bring up the right app - at least if
you have it installed on your device. In some cases, Snappy Chat will
have automatically pasted your message into the new app, so you then
just have to tap "send".
Note, some apps will not let Fat Cat paste the text
directly into them, so when the app comes up, you may have to do
the pasting manually. For manual pasting, just hold your finger
on a text entry box for a moment, until you see the "magnifying
glass" pop up. Then, lift your finger and the select and paste
commands will appear. Then tap paste.
Note, some apps may let you add additional text
to the message from their keyboard, but might not let you get additional
text from the rest of the Snappy Chat interface.
Also note, some people have more than one app for
each of these different types of electronic messages, so the first
time you try to send a message, Snappy Chat may ask you to choose
which app you want to use. You can also configure this in the setting
In many cases, when Snappy Chat opens the other app,
this action clears the Snappy Chat textbox.
So now ... if you're stuck in a situation so lame
that it boggles the mind, you can send a note to the guys.
