Hebrew Nikud is a custom iOS keyboard that makes it easy to write Hebrew with vowel points - 'nikud' - using apps that support Hebrew language input, such as Pages, Keynote, Notes, Mail, Textilus, Captio, and many others.

Just tap the Nikud button, and a complete listing of all of the Hebrew vowel points appears on your keyboard. Tap the vowel character, and it instantly appears underneath, or above the letter. You can write one letter at a time, adding the vowel points after each letter, or write the entire document in unpointed Hebrew, and add the vowel points to each letter when you are done.

Davka Nikud supports all nikud characters as well as 'dagesh'.

Please add 3D Touch

The app is decent, but we could type the nikkud much more quickly if we could hold down the consonant and have the nikkud options pop up instead of navigating back and forth back and forth for each letter typed. For $5 it’s time for an update.

Great app!

I have used this app for about a year, and it truly is fantastic. Congratulations to the team!

Allow me to give one suggestion for the future of the app. The new iPhones contain 3D Touch. It would be great if, by pressing harder on a letter, it brought up the nikud options, and then the user would release their finger on the vowel they wanted. That way, with one press, both letter and vowel are selected.

Does not support long touch or 3D touch, incredibly outdated and thus overpriced.

Scandalous that this app, for $5, 2-3x more than the going rate for such an app with no trial version, hasn't been updated in three years (as of 2019), and does not work with new phones (with 3D touch where a long press on a button brings up the nikud, while a hard press on the keyboard should allow scrolling cursor back and forth. Will update this review if these features are added to at least keep up with the "normal" iphone hebrew keyboard, which unfortunately has only a limited nikud functionality.
