For years Persian speakers used the Arabic keyboard on the iPhone, which was not really ideal for writing quickly or accurately in Persian. There were lots of petitions to Apple, pressing them to add a Persian keyboard to mobile phones. That finally paid off with the latest release.
In the earliest Greek inscriptions after the Greek Dark Agesdating to the 8th century BC, the letter rests upon its side, but in the Greek alphabet of later times it generally resembles the modern capital letter, although many local varieties can be distinguished by the shortening of one leg, or by the angle at which the cross line is set.
The Etruscans brought the Greek alphabet to their civilization in the Italian Peninsula and left the letter unchanged. The Romans later adopted the Etruscan alphabet to write the Latin languageand the resulting letter was preserved in the Latin alphabet that would come to be used to write many languages, including English.
Typographic variants Different glyphs of the lowercase letter A.
During Roman times, there were many variant forms of the letter "A". First was the monumental or lapidary style, which was used when inscribing on stone or other "permanent" media.
There was also a cursive style used for everyday or utilitarian writing, which was done on more perishable surfaces. Due to the "perishable" nature of these surfaces, there are not as many examples of this style as there are of the monumental, but there are still many surviving examples of different types of cursive, such as majuscule cursive, minuscule cursive, and semicursive minuscule.
Variants also existed that were intermediate between the monumental and cursive styles. The known variants include the early semi-uncialthe uncial, and the later semi-uncial. At the end of the Roman Empire 5th century ADseveral variants of the cursive minuscule developed through Western Europe.
By the 9th century, the Caroline scriptwhich was very similar to the present-day form, was the principal form used in book-making, before the advent of the printing press.
This form was derived through a combining of prior forms. These variants, the Italic and Roman forms, were derived from the Caroline Script version.
The Italic form, also called script a, is used in most current handwriting and consists of a circle and vertical stroke. This slowly developed from the fifth-century form resembling the Greek letter tau in the hands of medieval Irish and English writers. In Greek handwriting, it was common to join the left leg and horizontal stroke into a single loop, as demonstrated by the uncial version shown.
Many fonts then made the right leg vertical. In some of these, the serif that began the right leg stroke developed into an arc, resulting in the printed form, while in others it was dropped, resulting in the modern handwritten form.
Italic type is commonly used to mark emphasis or more generally to distinguish one part of a text from the rest set in Roman type.This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
