Making an app out of keyboard mappings

When a #Wikipedia title like ଇଣ୍ଟରନେଟ cannot be typed on your keyboard, what do you do? One way of coping with a bad situation is using the Gyanpad app created by Arjuna Rao Chavala.

What it does is using several layers of the Google Virtual keyboard API. Sadly this API has been deprecated but, it still works. It is one way of finding articles in Indic languages, using an app that makes use of interwiki links is another.


This is the keyboard layout for the Hindi Inscript keyboard. Google does provide you with the option to try the keyboard out.
Thanks,
