Iranian users have been the first target of FarsiTel, and that’s why we’ve translated UI into Persian, added Iranian calendar, and our default keyboard supports Persian. But the platform is the same for an Arabic solution too, and if we see interest among our Arab friends a customization of FarsiTel for their use will come very soon. Read more in FAQ.
By providing a Qiblah compass and calculating and providing prayer times according to the user’s current location, FarsiTel shows that GPS and the compass standard in today’s cellphones could be used for more than maps. Not just that, it notifies the religious activities of the current day and month (in Islamic calendar), and comes with The Holy Qur’an as an application.
Iranian calendar is now a built-in feature in Android, and when the user selects to use that, not only the default Calendar application, but everywhere in the system and even new applications installed by users will show dates in Iranian calendar. Even more than that, date and time and every other number in the system is displayed using Persian digits.
The text rendering in FarsiTel is 100% compatible with Unicode, providing Arabic script in its ideal form, as if the OS has been designed from ground up with right-to-left scripts in mind. Along with this, an optimized soft keyboard with typeahead dictionary, RTL user interface, and numerals in Persian digits provide a fully localized environment as a new experience for users.
