FLAGSTAFF, AZ – Thanks to the groundbreaking efforts of Native Innovation, Inc., an American Indian owned and veteran small business from Arizona, Apple users can now download the Navajo Keyboard app for their iPhones and iPads through iTunes.
The application became available earlier this month and is free.
The Navajo Keyboard makes it possible for users to type in and removes many of the frustrations that users have with typing the Navajo language using the default iPhone and iPad keyboard.
This application places an extra row of keys on its keyboard, allowing you access to specific Navajo characters without depressing the letter. A slide bar is included that you can turn on and off to transition between your Navajo keyboard and the default iPhone and iPad keyboard.
“We wanted to provide something for our younger generations that is unique and promotes the language,”
said Jerome Tsosie, president and co-owner of Native Innovation, Inc.
The performance of the Navajo Keyboard app supports sharing what you have written through social media apps such as Facebook, Twitter, Messages, plus Email. Overall, Navajo Keyboard is essential to all Navajo Language Enthusiasts because of its speed, usability and plain usefulness.
