Attributed String Creator takes all of the work out of programming with NSAttributedStrings by automatically generating native Swift 3 or Objective-C code from your formatted text.

Write, paste or import any text into Attributed String Creator and it will produce a neat and easily readable equivalent of your text in NSMutableAttributedString declaration form. Copy this into your Xcode project and you’ll have an exact reproduction of your text as a variable you can assign to labels, text views, buttons, tables and anything else that supports it.

There are lots of advantages to using attributed strings in your apps; the aesthetics of an app can make or break it so it’s important that your apps look their best. Having richly formatted, sharp, vibrant text can make a big difference to how users perceive your work and will help your apps stand out from the crowd.
