Sanhinda Sinhala Typing Pad for iPad and macOS

Sanhinda was the very first individual iPhone application I have built and submitted as an individual app for myself in early as 2011. The iOS app became the #1 iPhone app for Sri Lankan Apple App Store in December 2011.

Since then the app didn’t make much progress until I wrote the initially written ObjC code again in Swift recently with a Keyboard Extension. The motivation for the re-write was mainly due to a concern raised by one of my friend Thishya Weragoda regarding the privacy concerns over the widely adopted Helakuru Keyboard. We believed that the popular app retrieves quite a bit of personal information that is not quite required at all for a Keyboard app.



Thus, we believed that there should be major improvements for the decade old 100% Offline Sanhinda Sinhala Typing app for the users who are concerned about their privacy and personal information. There have been major improvements and bug fixes for iPhone app and published the app totally free of charge from its users.

Thereafter, I have worked on an iPad version of Sanhinda iPhone app and found that macOS version would be handy as same as a iPad version. Therefore I’ve used macCatalyst to build mac versin. The iPad app is optimized for larger displays and comes up with a full featured Sinahala Keyboard. The mac version works on any Mac with macOS 10.15 (Catalina) or later. iPad and Mac app is available for a modest 2.99 USD one-off charge.
