Good but has problems.

I've used transliteration before and hence it was easy to use. My big problem was how it integrates with keyboard. It seems to disables keyboard clicks setting and Apple auto suggestions even when I am not using the keyboard I.e in English keyboard setting. I don't like keyboard clicks and for this reason I had to uninstall it.

Thanks for your feedback.

Either "RTS Telugu" app or keyboard extension will not store or transmit (over network) any of your keystrokes.

"Transliterate Clipboard Text" is a feature of this keyboard which is intended to quickly transliterate a paragraph of text. To use this feature, user must allow full access to the keyboard. If user do not wish to use this feature or if a user donot wish to hear sounds for keystrokes, there is no need to allow full access to this keyboard.

The keyboard is fully functional without allowing full access. Please read our privacy policy following the link provided in the "RTS Telugu" app.
