The reason why they are making this(Malayalam keyboard”) application is to type Malayalam very easily on Android Phones.They are three tabs namely sware, kootta and chillu,from those three type of tbas you can easily use all the alphabets. Mostly we found some difficulties when we type“Koottaksharangal”of malayalam other wise you should now the combination of letters to get “Koottaksharangal”.In this application “Koottakshrangal” is given in a separate tabs to avoid this difficulty. The vowel signs are given in floating groups so that it will be easy to select. Other letter groups are scrollable.
If we type letter like “Pa” in any Malayalam font by default,the result will be print “Pvu”. To overcome this problem,those are set it to the same letter in this application, so it only need to type just like you write Malayalam.
