"Hindi SMS" is a Hindi SMS/Email application that can help Iphone users to sent SMS or Email in Hindi. Any phone, which has Devanagari Unicode support, can display the messages sent from this application. There are many Mobile Phone Brands, which support Devanagari.
Hindi SMS is one of the first attempts to create a mobile software keyboard for Hindi. This application fully utilizes the large iPhone screen instead of shrinking the buttons to default software keyboard. The main screen displays most of the common alphabets and other letters can be accessed by pressing "shift" button or double tapping the primary buttons on the main screen.
Double tapping a keyboard button may be a new concept to Iphone keyboards, but the large number of Devanagari glyphs made it necessary for easy access. Double tapping a button will add the secondary symbol of that button. For example, the symbol " ी " can be added by double tapping the button " ई ".
Eg1: की can be typed in following ways:
क + sfift + ी
क + double tap ई
Combination of letters can be entered in the following way:
Eg2: प + virama + र = प्र
Eg3: प + virama + य = प्य
Double tap on space bar produces a period followed by a space similar to iPhone keyboard. Number button gives access to the default iPhone keyboard which can be used to key in numbers, English alphabets, symbols or any thing that can be entered from normal iPhone keyboard.
Tapping the SMS button will take the user to iPhone SMS interface. The data entered by the user is automatically copied to the message body. The user can modify, cancel or sent the message. Tapping Cancel or sent options will bring back the user to "Hindi SMS" interface. For more information, please visit http://hindisms2010.blogspot.com/
