Biir is an Ethiopic Keyboard and Reader. It is a unique approach to writing Amharic and other Ethiopic languages.
The primary(geez) characters are shown on the screen. To write the modified versions of the same character the user presses the geez letter followed by the 'kitiya' mark shown at the top row.

Accurately functioning app + great customer service

I had made use of other Geez-based keyboards/readers before. With my recent iOS upgrade, however, I had issues reading any amharic texts. So when I came across this app, I thought it would solve my problems. I initially encountered issues while installing it. When I susbsequently reached out to the developer, he was incredibly prompt and helpful in his reply. Therefore, I was able to get past the minor hiccup and I am easily able to make use of the app. I appreciate how user friendly the app is and the speedy support I got when I encountered a problem. Thank you!
