Baybayin is the native writing system of the Philippines

Baybayin is the indigenous script of the Philippines that has made a resurgence as a way to express Filipino cultural identity. The Baybayin Keyboard lets you type baybayin characters on your iPhone or iPad. It functions seamlessly as an alternate system keyboard that can be used within apps such as Messages, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

The Baybayin Keyboard includes two keyboard layouts: Traditional and Modernized. The Modernized layout is laid out similarly to your QWERTY keyboard so you can type faster. It also includes modernized characters for RA, ZA, VA, FA, and JA, as well as alternatives for I and U vowels.

What’s New

Version 1.9.37

The modernized RA character compatible with iOS is now visible on Modernized layout without first tapping shift button.

Its good! but app needs improvement

Please include the following if possible:

1. it lacks of special characters like peso sign, bullets , "@" sharp "&" ☆♪➝etc.

2. No emoji

3. the spacing width is narrow

4. unable to translate the text via google translate because it don't represent English text

if you type "ᜊ" the translator will read the character as "ba"

5. add english keyboard inside the baybayin, I only use one keyboard and its pain to change keyboard everytime I want to add english character on my sentence.

6. the kudlit E/I O/U is redundant because there is a E/I , O/U as primary character. to avoid this, make a flick keyboard like japanese 12key flick keyboard.

6.1 the keyboard doesn't have character suggestion to save up spaces on the keyboard.

6.2 add pamudpod to the suggestion so you can remove one pamudpod on the keyboard and should be on the suggested character.

6.3 make the suggestion show emoji

example the user type ᜋᜆ(mata)
keyboard should suggest emoji like eyes 👀

I find this app enjoyable to have. The dalubhasa option is good, though it might require a little research before effective use because the dalubhasa keyboard is "all baybayin styles" friendly (not all). I just have a few issues: I don't know what the double kudlit is for. I've heard of a double kudlit that has one dot on top of the glyph and one below (tricky), but never two on top. Another issue/suggestion I'd like to address is the keyboard layout. I want to be able to type efficiently on it, however, the keyboard is too small for my fingers. Maybe it could be stretched? I don't know. I know there ain't as much keys for baybayin, but it's hard to type in a really small keyboard. Oh, and the backspace is weird. I can't press once and wait for the deletion. I have to press it multiple times to erase. Other than that, good job pare!

4/5 Improvements

Sa totoo lang, maganda na yung layout. The letters are complete. The scripture is accurate, and you can easily access it. However, some of the things I would recommend is making it a little bit more tweakable. The keyboard height as well as a better looking dark mode keyboard theme. You can even add a the trackpad feature of the factory virtual keyboard (the one where you hold the space key down and the keyboard turns into a trackpad). Kudos to your work in keeping Baybayin alive. ᜉᜇᜌᜓᜈ͓᜵ ᜃᜉᜆᜒᜇ͓!
