Persian Keypad, Farsi Keyboard and Persian Keyboard are three keyboard applications that Farsi-speakers can download for free. The applications are available for iOS, Android and BlackBerry devices, respectively.
Promising to not require full access to phone contents, Persian Keypad offers various customization options for the keyboard such as changing the size and the shape of the characters, the color of the keyboard and the background image. The keyboard supports emoji characters, auto correction and word prediction. Persian Keypad also offers comprehensive paragraph formatting tools to organize longer texts. The application automatically saves all text when the user quits it. As such, returning to the application allows the user to continue the previous writing.
Available on Google Play Store, Farsi Keyboard features both Farsi and English characters in one layout. The keyboard supports the standard Unicode character set and mathematical operators. It also allows the user to change the theme and the layout. Farsi Keyboard comes with an installation wizard. The application works on Android versions 2.2 and newer.
Designed after the standard Persian keyboard layout, Persian Keyboard for BlackBerry offers a quick search option via Google, multi-function keys and the ability to switch to English characters without closing the application. Persian Keyboard does not restrict the number of lines written, has a speaker feature and provides a Persian help option.
