March 29, 2017: A Bangalore-based specialist in Indian language solutions, Reverie Language Technologies, has just relieved a pain point of Apple phone and tablet users. T
he native iOS system software is not friendly to Indian languages. Android is a different case: Reverie has previously launched an indic keyboard called Swalekh.
Now the company has bridged the gap for Apple users by launching Swalekh Flip in iOS in 11 Indian languages, as a free download on iOS’ App Store.
The 11 languages are: Hindi, Bangla, Telugu, Marathi, Tamil, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Odia, Punjabi and Assamese.
The app occupies just 5.9MB memory space and provides real time transliteration
The Indic Keypad Swalekh Flip supports the following three modes with a user friendly navigation:
- The English mode allows the user type in English just like any other English keyboard.
- The phonetic mode allows the user to simply type in English characters and allows real-time transliteration into the chosen Indian language script. This is especially useful for English language users who would like to communicate in Hinglish, any other available Indian language combination along with English
- The native mode allows the users to type in their chosen Indian language.
The flip icon on the top left of the keyboard shows settings that are available in the language of choice. Users can select from 2 themes and 24 mood colours.
Reverie was founded in 2009 by Arvind Pani, Vivek Pani and S.K Mohanty and is led by a strong R&D technology team that builds technologies to bridge the language divide in the digital world.
