Our smartphones do have an English keyboard by default, at times creating frustration for those who want to send their words in Urdu. Alternately people opt for the Roman Urdu to convey their thoughts to their loved ones.
Easy Urdu Keyboard App
Fortunately, an easy solution for Urdu lovers is always there on Google Play Store with the brand name of Easy Urdu Keyboard. This award winning app is developed by a renowned software house based in Karachi – the Pakistan Data Management Services (PakData). The developers aimed to bring a better and painlessly simple way to use local languages in favourite chatting apps on internet.
Interestingly, Easy Urdu Keyboard has just reached the 3 million downloads milestone recently ever since its launch in 2015. Its developers claim that it is one of the most downloaded apps in Pakistan by a local company. Easy Urdu Keyboard is also the winner of the P@SHA ICT 2016 award.
- Easy Urdu Keyboard has a special feature of turning Urdu words written in Roman English into proper Urdu words, along with having an Urdu alphabet keyboard to write in Urdu.
- The dictionary feature allows the app to predict the next word user wants to write and aids in fast typing.
- The app also offers many themes for the keyboard.
- These keyboard apps work across all apps including Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter, Skype, SMS and all writing apps as well.
The CEO of Pakistan Data Management Services, Mr Arif Hisam, stated,
“We have been expanding our development efforts and trying to bring more ease and comfort to the smart phone users in Pakistan. As more and more people are adapting to smart phones, the demand for quality apps rising. The success of Easy Urdu Keyboard would not have been possible without the combined effort of the whole team of PakData.”
Multiple Languages Support
As part of its initiative to bring local languages to smart phones, PakData has also released Pashto and Sindhi Keyboards on Google Play Store that are seeing a lot of interest from the users. PakData is currently working on other local language keyboards including Punjabi for those who want to type and use their native languages on their phone.
