Custom Keyboards for iOS Devices

While there is still no way to create custom keyboards for iOS the way you can for OS X, I have seen two apps which let you produce keyboards that can be used to generate text for emailing or copy/pasting into other apps. These are UniKey and Unicode Map. UniKey comes with keyboards already made for Georgian, Armenian, Chess, and Afrikaans.

The app UnikeyiPad works perfectly and is the solution for all diacritics missing from present virtual keybords on IPad.

I have tested the app and going to use it for my Master Memoire on Ugaritic Lexicon.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I'm trying to add Thaana letters to Unicode map keyboard, but no chow to correct it?

iOS has no font for Thaana, so you cannot read or type it, and it is not possible for users to add their own fonts. Tell Apple you want it via their feedback channels.
