Get Multi-Lingual With Abjad Keyboard for Mango
Say what you will about the importance of mobile entertainment, smartphones are ultimately about connecting people. It doesn’t matter where you’re from or what language you speak, our mobile devices should allow us to relay our thoughts to our friends in the simplest and most efficient manner. While this works as planned for those proficient in English, native speakers of other languages are sometimes left out in the cold.
To help remedy the situation for Arabic- and Hebrew-speaking WP7 users, XDA forum member Dr.Dev has decided to create Abjad Keyboard.

This is a standalone app which means you’ll need to switch to it every time you need to write in Arabic. However, thanks to Mango’s fast switching capability which made the whole thing a lot easier.
If you’re interested in getting multi-lingual, be sure to continue on to the application thread.
