In the latter half of 2014, Apple announced the ability to develop custom keyboards for its mobile devices. Enter Sinhala for iOS – a keyboard extension for iOS that, as you guessed, brings Sinhala language support to all your iOS devices.
Developed by xinterium and Bhagya Silva (of wooroll.com), the app is based on a design supporting standard Wijesekera layout and SLSI 1134 standard character input. It features a algorithm at its core which also makes it easier by identifying natural typing styles. According to the developers, the purpose is to giving the Sinhala typist a best in class experience typing in their own language.
The app can be downloaded via the Apple Appstore and is priced at $12.99 in the United States (and accordingly priced in other regions). We haven’t tried it out yet, but if you feel the need to do so, do tell us how it is.
You can download it from here. For more information and for the official Facebook page, click here.
