Mobile Jawi for Android

While it might not be the winning app in the App Developer Challenge 2012, the Mobile Jawi app by Muthu Nedumaran of Murasu Systems managed to attract our attention more than the other apps on the list. This is due to the fact that the app enable users to use Jawi without prior knowledge of the alphabets, thanks to its rather nifty built-in prediction system.

It is much more interesting to see the app in action rather than us explaining it in words, so we had Muthu himself to demonstrate the Mobile Jawi app to you:

Priced at RM 5, the Mobile Jawi for Android is available for download through MyAppzil - an independent app store which is a subsidiary of UbiNuri Inc. of South Korea.

MobileJawi is an Android input method that enables text input in 4 modes:

  • Rumi->Jawi : Where user enters text in Rumi and the input method converts it to Jawi on the fly. Users are presented with suggestions based on the first few letters.
  • Rumi: Input method to compose Bahasa Malaysia text with prediction
  • English: English input method with prediction
  • Jawi: Native Jawi input method with prediction that shows suggestions in both Jawi and Rumi.

With this app, users can easily compose and send Jawi text via SMS, Whatsapp, Viber, Email, Twitter, Facebook and many other social network apps. No knowledge of Jawi is necessary as the intelligent prediction mechanism will guide the user through as the text is typed.

Requirement :
Android 4.1 (Jellybean) for accurate Jawi rendering. Accuracy in Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and below is not guaranteed.

Available for download from MyAppzil
