Punjnud: Dedicated Urdu Keyboard for Android Devices


Being an Urdu blogger and promoter of Unicode Urdu, I have to write lots of Urdu everyday. While doing so on a PC/Laptop there are many software and keyboard layouts available that let you write Urdu fonts but for smartphones and tablets you don’t have much options.

I had been using Multiling keyboard on all of my Android devices for last few months. It has support for more than 130 languages including Urdu, but today I found another great dedicated Urdu Keyboard called Punjnud Keyboard available on the Play Store for free.

The good thing about Punjnud Keyboard is that you don’t have to install any additional plugin or anything. Its just like any other keyboard (such as Swift) that you just download and ready to type in Urdu.

The app developer claims that it is the first keyboard to introduce Urdu, Punjabi, Pashto and Sindhi layouts on Android — which of course isn’t true, but its always good to have more choices.

How to use Punjnud keyboard:



After installing the Punjund keyboard application from the Play Store — here’s the link— go to your phone settings.

Select Languages & Input and then enable the Urdu Keyboard option, after that make it default keyboard and that’s it.

Please note that the system might warn you that the keyboard can collect your personal data and passwords, but don’t worry this app doesn’t have access to the network so even if it tries to store your data it can never transmit it.



Punjund keyboard has 5 language layouts, including Urdu, Punjabi, Sindhi, Pashto and English.

You can easily change them by clicking on the language button on the bottom left.



Unlike other keyboards it has a very basic and user friendly layout. However it misses some fancy stuff like themes, emoji and dictionary/word prediction. There are some minor bugs there too, such as key pop up doesn’t show the letter etc, but I hope developer will fix them in the coming updates.

According to the developer this keyboards is optimized for Jelly Bean users, so if you are using earlier versions of Android or if your phone doesn’t have Arabic support you will find some issues in typing Urdu as characters will not join together to make a word.

Just in case if you missed the URL above, here is the the download Link again.

Around the back lies a 5 megapixel camera with LED Flash, coupled by a VGA shooter at the front.

  • 9.3mm thick
  • Weight: 145 grams

Samsung Announces Note 3 Neo the Cheaper Version of the Note 3


Samsung has announced a new version of its Note 3 smartphone, in the Note 3 Neo with stripped down specs and of course the price.

The display of the phone is trimmed by 0.2 inches to a 5.5″ Super AMOLED unit. The big bummer is the resolution, which is bumped down from 1080p to 720p HD. The design is inspired from the Note, however, with a leathery back.

Beneath, you will find a quad-core 1.6Ghz Cortex A7 processor. The special “LTE+” version will get a hexa-core processor though, consisting of a 1.7Ghz dual-core Cortex-A15 and a 1.3Ghz quad-core Cortex A7 processor. There will also be 2 GB worth RAM and 16 gigs of expandable storage.

Towards the back will be an 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video, down from the 13mp/4K combo of the Note 3. A 2 mp camera completes the mix. Battery capacity is set at 3,100 mAh.

Being a Note, the most important aspect of the phone is the S-Pen itself which, thankfully, isn’t forgotten.

Here are the specs of the phone:

  • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean customized with TouchWiz UI
  • 5.5″ Super AMOLED display with HD resolution
  • 8.6mm thick
  • Weight: 162.5g
  • S-Pen functionality
  • 1.6Ghz quad-core Cortex A7 processor
  • 2 GB RAM with 16 GB expandable storage
  • 8 megapixel rear-camera with 1080p Full HD video
  • 2 mp front-facing camera

Mobilink Becomes the World’s Fastest Growing Brand on Facebook


Mobilink has been certified as the World’s Fastest Growing Brand on Social Media by Social Bakers, global provider of network statistics and analysis for the most commonly used social networks.

This is the first time a Pakistani Brand has led the global charts of any social media ranking. Social Bakers has also marked Mobilink as the most socially devoted Pakistani for a second consecutive month on all social fronts.

The achievement followed Mobilink’s fan base crossing the milestone of over 2.1 million Facebook fans and twitter followers growing to more than 89,000. This marks Mobilink as the leading telecom brand on social media with maximum likes on Facebook ( and the most followers on its twitter account (

Ali Murtaza, Director Marketing Mobilink said, “The overwhelming response of our growing fan base on the social media and our leading statistics are reflective of our focus on providing the best customer experience on all fronts. As social media and mobile internet become a popular way of modern communication, Mobilink continues to empower its customers with the best online experience to create ‘A better every day’ for everyone.’

Mobilink has recorded the best response rate of 94% for customer queries on social media according to Social Bakers. The Twitter statistics issued by Social Bakers for the month of December show that Mobilink has escalated through the charts to reach the Klout score of 61 with a clear 5 points lead over the closest competitor as of January 1, 2014.

Mobilink’s dominant strategy of connecting with its fans on the social media was part of the launch of its new brand identity Har Dil – Har Din in June last year. Mobilink has since seen a significant increase in popularity and has been acknowledged for its online customer engagement to become the most followed telecom brand on the social media.


QMobile Announces its First Tablet, the QTab X50 Price: PKR 24,500


QMobile has announced its first tablet for the country’s audience, the QTab X50.

The tablet measures 8 inches in size and comes with a quad-core MediaTek processor underneath.

The display is a disappointing aspect, however, with 1024 x 768 resolution. QMobile’s several phones themselves easily top that. The design is also rather uninspiring but we can live with that.

Under the hood, a 1.2Ghz quad-core MediaTek processor with 1 GB worth RAM and 16 GB expandable storage onboard. At the back sits a 5 megapixel camera, coupled by a 2 megapixel camera at the front.

The tablet comes with a SIM card slot but we don’t know whether phone calls and messaging are doable. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are also onboard.

Here are the full specs of the X50:

  • Customized Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
  • 8 inch display with resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels
  • 9.9mm thick
  • GSM support
  • 1.2Ghz quad-core MediaTek processor
  • 1 GB RAM with 16 GB expandable storage
  • 5 megapixel rear-camera
  • 2 megapixel front-camera
  • Wi-Fi, microUSB 2.0, Bluetooth
  • 4500 mAh battery
  • Price: PKR 24,500

PKR 24,500 , well, that’s not that much but when you think of comparable offerings by established names like Samsung through devices like the Nexus 7 and the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, it can be a bit tough to swallow.

You’ve got to be aware of the rights and wrongs before buying this one.
