iPhone and Hindi keyboard.

Hindi keyboard on iPhone 5:

This perhaps would be my first bilingual post in English and Hindi. But thanks to the keyboard of the iPhone, Hindi typing is as easy as English. Hindi keyboards are not easy. Hindi not only has letters but also symbols above, below and after the letters to pronounce sounds. Typing symbols is not easy. But iPhone’s Hindi keyboard is intuitive and easy. If you have not tried, please do try.

Massage in Hindi :

यह मेरा प्रथम दिवभाषीय अंग्रेज़ी और हिंदी लेखन होगा। इसके लिये आईफ़ोन के हिन्दी कुंजीपटल को धन्यवाद। ईसके कारण हिंदी में टाइप करना अत्यंत सुविधाजनक है। हिंदी के कुंजीपटल आसान नहीं होते। हिंदी में शब्दों के ऊपर और नीचे मात्राओं को लगाना पड़ता है जिससे आवाज़ें उत्पन्न होती हैं। इन मात्राओं के सूचकों को गोदना आसान नहीं होता। परंतु आईफ़ोन का हिंदी कुंजीपटल आसान और सुविधाजनक है। अगर आपने प्रयोग नहीं किया तो तुरंत प्रयोग करें।

To use this keyboard add Hindi Keyboard in settings like this:



Now press the Globe button on keyboard and Hindi Keyboard will appear. All the best.


Tinydesk for iphone: review

Blogging by Tinydesk for iPhone

Tinydesk is forum secular blogging tool. It claims to be able to connect to most of blogging sites like wordpress and blogger etc. but it is not able to connect to self hosted sites. So far I have not been able to find any solution for self hosted site except to post through email or install jetpack from wordpress.

Regarding Tinydesk, though it is good enough but often it publishes even when selection is to save as draft. Further if it is a published post (even if uploaded as a draft) it is not able to edit it. Which means once published it is final.

But not so final. Often a post is saved/uploaded several times. Of course it happens only when we press save several times but why? I do not know.

As it happened, while I was saving this article, it got published with title without any text and thereafter I could not edit it. Still exploring Tinydesk and shall revert if I missed something.
