Yamli has released their iOS keyboard app, the app allows users to type Arabic without an Arabic keyboard. It is based on a real-time transliteration engine which converts words typed with Latin characters to their closest Arabic equivalent (from Yamli’s website).
Yamli app is very easy to use, just start typing latin characters and the app will start converting the words to Arabic words. iOS 3 and later support Arabic so it should not be an issue to display these letters. This app is also a Universal App so it can be run on the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
Thanks Habib Haddad for proving me a copy of Yamli to try. I usually don’t use “Arabish” but I got to test this app and it is very easy to use. If you are an experienced “Arabish” typist then you should find this app to be very useful.
Here’s a video of Yamli in action:
Yamli is available on the iTunes App Store for $2.99.
