App Description

“அகர முதல எழுத்தெல்லாம் ஆதி பகவன் முதற்றே உலகு” If your device can display this sentence in Tamil perfectly, then your device supports Tamil and Swarachakra should also work well. If you do not see any text, or if some of the words are incorrect, Swarachakra may not work well.

Swarachakra Tamil (ஸ்வரச்சக்ரா தமிழ்) is a touch-screen keyboard for inputting text in Tamil. (Swarachakra is also available in Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati, Odia, Punjabi, Bengali and Konkani.) Swarachakra uses a logically ordered design based on the structure of Tamil script. Swarachakra displays the consonants sequenced according to the logical structure of Tamil script, phonetically grouped and arranged in a grid similar to those found in most school textbooks.

Typing with Swarachakra
In Tamil, we frequently need to type a combination of a consonant (க) and a matra (ி) like க + ி = கி. When you touch a consonant, a chakra with combination of consonants and 10 frequent matras pops up (கா, கி, கீ, கு, கூ, கெ, கே, கை...). The chakra gives a preview of the possible character combinations. To select a combination, you slide the stylus or finger towards it.
Complete vowels (அ, ஆ, இ, ஈ, உ, ஊ, எ, ஏ, ஐ...) appear in a separate chakra on the bottom right. The less used vowels and matras are next to it (ஔ, ௌ, ஃ). Numerals, symbols and rarely used characters appear on a shift. You could also switch to the QWERTY keypad temporarily to input English characters.

Installing Swarachakra
First, install Swarachakra Tamil by clicking the “Install” button above.
Next, you need to “enable” the keyboard. To enable, open “Settings”, select “Language and Input” and check the box in front of ஸ்வரச்சக்ரா தமிழ் (Swarachakra Tamil) in the “Keyboard and input methods” section.
Finally, click on the “Default” option in the “Keyboard and input methods” section, and select ஸ்வரச்சக்ரா தமிழ் (Swarachakra Tamil) as the default keyboard. (Sorry, but that’s how Android works)

What is an APK file?

An APK file is an app created for Android, Google's mobile operating system. Some apps come pre-installed on Android devices, while other apps can be downloaded from Google Play, or site like ApksPC.com . Apps downloaded from Google Play are automatically installed on your device, while those downloaded from other sources must be installed manually.

If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

Yes, absolutely. As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've installed, it will commence an update.

What measures do you take to make sure all APKs are real?

Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from this site, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Why can't I press the Install button? It's grayed out on my Android device!

Disable any screen-dimming apps, like Lux or Twilight. For security reasons, Android will gray out the Install button when an app like that is active.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
