Google Hindi Input is a new Android App that is tremendously useful for users in India. This clever little app lets you type Hindi with ease in webpages, SMS, Email messages and in social messaging apps.
Once installed, Google Hindi Input adds a Globe icon and “a->?” button to your Android’s native keyboard. Tapping “a->?” button (*next to space button) will turn on/off transliteration mode. In transliteration mode, you type a Hindi word in English characters, and as you type, the app will automatically convert them to Hindi. There is even an ingenious auto-correct feature, which will predict words in Hindi and offer them as selectable choices in a field just above the keyboard. Just tap on a word to Enter it.
Pressing the “Globe button” brings a new Hindi keyboard with Devanagari alphabets and symbols to input Hindi words. Note that you can bring up extra symbols by pressing the paging button “1/2” “2/2 available on the left side of keyboard.
What do we think of it?
We simply love this app, and we think this app is a lovely surprise for all those Indian users who always want to communicate in “Desi language”. Also, we’re pretty sure that users might be expecting similar apps for regional languages such as Guajarati, Tamil, Teulgu, Kannada and Malayalam.
