Yamli, the startup that specializes in smart transliteration technologies for the Arabic Web, just unveiled its new official iOS application for the iPhone and the iPad, bringing their technology to their users while on the move on their mobile phones and tablets.

The app is priced at $2.99, works mostly offline, and is pretty straight-forward in how it works. Once a user clicks on the purple Yamli logo, a text area opens up for the user to type in the text they want transliterated into Arabic; this text can then be sent as an SMS or an email message.

Using the app too, users can perform web searches, as well as specific searches on YouTube, iTunes and Maps. Obviously the search options would require an internet connection to work.

This move comes as a continuation of Yamli’s push to spread their transliteration technology across different platforms. They’ve previously released browser plugins for Chrome and Firefox, a Facebook app, and iGoogle gadget as well as an API and their enterprise search platform, all in order to make it easier for users to type and use Arabic text online.

The application can be found on iTunes here: Yamli Arabic Keyboard App.

The following is a video that was shared by Yamli showing how the application works, which should help in making the decision whether to shell our the $2.99 to get it or not.
