OpenHebrew – Free Hebrew Support for Iphone & Ipod Touch

May 22, 2009

After HebDev decided to stop developing their free Hebrew translation for the Iphone and leave the market only with the non-free solution, apparently another Iphone developer named Tom Zickel has decided to develop his own Hebrew support for the Iphone.
The Hebrew support is running for few months now, and the Hebrew support exist starting of march although I’ve heard of it only in the last few days.

as taken from the project site:

OpenHebrew – a free high quality Hebrew support for both the iPhone and iPod Touch.
This project comes in 2 parts, the first is only the Hebrew support without Hebrew translation of the interface (what most people abroad might prefer) and the second part is the Hebrew translation itself (which was done by the iVrit project).

I don’t know exactly how does this Hebrew support comparing to the other solutions in the market, but it’s good to know that there are some free solutions available until OS 3.0 will be available as RTM.

in order to get the Hebrew, you can follow the instructions in the following site:

The Hebrew support works on versions 2.2 and 2.2.1 as well.
