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

For example, typing "salam" will give you “سلام” 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 Arabic word, KeyNounce is smart enough to accept many input spellings for the same output word.

If you can write, or read Arabic, but aren’t used to typing using the Arabic 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 Arabic.

Good, but missing a few things

Specifically: the option to toggle on/off word prediction; what if I'm writing another language written with the Arabic alphabet? I know what I'm writing, I don't want to have to wrestle with my keyboard to write something. A way to write vowel diacritics would be wonderful as well. Otherwise an excellent keyboard!

Great start!

As I am starting to learn Arabic this is a great app to help me learn how to convert Latin script to Arabic script. Most Arabic I will be using is more casual and thus is written in Arabic "chat" or Franco-Arabic. Some additional features such as offline mode, being able to write script with your finger to convert it to text, and dialect settings (Levantine, Gulf, MSA, Egyptian, etc.) would greatly improve this app!
