Arabic Soft Keybaord 1.1

Salaam again

i have replaced the letters with images, now those with no Arabic font can use it in ease, Arabic Notepad would come in handy.. other apps you will see squares when you type, but i promise words are connected.
The area above the keyboard will help you see what you are typing.

for those who had installed an Arabic font, you will be fine with the new one, if you want the one with no images download it from here

i am going to continue supporting it for myself, so don't worry.. if you want it on the market, please express that in a comment or an email.

thanks and happy typing


  1. Salam brother,
    First of I'd like to thank you for the great utility you've created for us arabic speaking Android users.
    As a way of thanking you and helping you to make your app the best, I would like to point out some of the tiny bugs:
    - when sliding out the keyboard, every word I type, shows up in the suggestion field reversed.
    - missing lam alef, alef mamdoodah "~"
    - merging the English keyboard, so we don't have to switch bettween them from the settings->local& text.
    -"arabizing" of the punctuations like the question mark and the comma...etc.

    Mansoor Abdullah

  2. Salaam there,

    the idea of English beside Arabic is on my mind. as well adding the missing letters.
    I am busy these days, inshalla it will done as soon as i have some free time. i will make sure to implement all your suggestions.

    Thanks for your comments, keep them coming


  3. Sallam Alaikum brother,

    I just installed Arabic Soft Keyboard on my HTC Hero. I can get the keyboard to install fine but when i start typing i get the boxes as shown on the picture you posted above.

    When i send a sentence more than one word long it doesn't get received completely. Only the last word would make it in Arabic but the earlier words would show in squares/boxes.

    Note: I didn't add any fonts. What i did when i received my new phone was search for Arabic in the market & i installed:
    1) Arabic SMS Reader.
    2) Arabic Soft Keyboard.

    Any suggestions?

    Jazak Allah Khair for this app.
