KeyNounce is the easiest way to type in Oriya/Odia using just the English keyboard. KeyNounce uses a technique called "transliteration" that enables you to type the Oriya pronunciation in English, instantly giving you back the word written in Oriya.

For example, typing "Swaagata" will be converted into the Oriya letters right as you type! It’s simple, fast and super accurate. You don’t need to worry about typing in the exact English spelling for an Oriya word, KeyNounce is smart enough to accept many input spellings for the same output word.

If you can write, or read Oriya, but aren’t used to typing using the Oriya keyboard, KeyNounce is the perfect solution for you.

KeyNounce works in any app! Once you enable the keyboard you’ll be able to easily compose texts, emails, tweets, facebook posts, and search the web in Oriya.

The app needs all access

Looks like the app is well designed. However it requires access to everything or all access which means the developer can see everything you type. I don't understand why it needs that. Not sure how my data will get used. So I deleted it. Pl download at your own risk.

Amazing flawless transliteration in Odiya

I was searching for an app based keyboard to type in Odiya and was not too hopeful. Pleasantly surprised to see this app and installed it. Works flawlessly as advertised. I immediately paid for the full version.
As mentioned by other reviewer, this requires full access to the system. But I believe that’s an inherent limitation of the iOS architecture and not due to any bad intentions on the developer’s part. If you want the system to support 3rd party keyboard so that it can be used in any app, it needs full access. I don’t see how you can get around that limitation.
Finally a big thanks to the developer. If I come across something later, I will update my review.
