Just got to know that Google has came up with an handwriting recognition app – Google Handwriting Input.
And the good part is it has got Indian language support. Yay!!
But the bad part is that, it means the demise of my very own Thulika Keyboard. I had created it about 2 years back, and at that time there was no handwriting recognition app for any Indian language. I also had opensourced it, and have got requests from many to translate it to their language(Arabic, Hausa, Tamil to name a few) and some even have used it as part of their school/college projects.
RIP Thulika Keyboard, it was pleasure to have you around(it’s still out there, so you can download it and play with it, but with Google’s new app, mine seems a bit primitive 😦 ).
Google’s new app is awesome though, it recognises full words (mine could only do a letter at a time), and speaking about recognition, its very good at that.
So, here is me(Thulika), the old out dated tech giving way for the new stylish Google app 😉
