* (New) Material theme
Helakuru now comes with customizable keyboard themes including the beautiful Material theme which you can choose from preferences. New Themes: Holo Dark (Default), Holo Light, Material Dark, Material Light.
* Word Predictions:
Revolutionizing the Sinhala character input mechanisms, Helakuru introduces you the innovative feature "Helakuru Predictions" which enables you to type Sinhala words in just one two taps, without typing the whole words. When you type with Helakuru, this feature will predict the words as you type so that you can just select your preferred word from predictions without typing it entering letter by letter. It will make your typing speed much faster saving your valuable time.
Helakuru Prediction also supports self-learning so that the new words you type which are not in Helakuru word database such as person names, nicknames, location names & etc will be automatically saved in to Helakuru database & predict them whenever you type those words again.
* Bilingual support:
Helakuru supports both Sinhala & English Input, so that you even don't need to switch to a different Keyboard to type in English. Just tap the (a -> අ) button to switch between Sinhala & English.
* Keyboard Layouts:
If you're familiar with Standard Wijesekara keyboard layout to type in Sinhala, you can use that. But if you're not, Helakuru makes your life easier by introducing a Sinhala phonetic (transliteration) layout. With that you can easility type Sinhala phonetically as "ammaa" for "අම්මා" in the same way you type SMS in Singlish.
* System-wide support
Helakuru is not just an app, where you can type in Sinhala only in that app. It's a Standard Android Keyboard which you can use to type in any app system-wide whether it is Messaging app, Facebook app, twitter app or etc.
* Sinhala Unicode Rendering
Helakuru comes with the in-built Sinhala Unicode Rendering Technology innovated by Bhasha Lanka, so you can type in Sinhala even if your device does not support Sinhala. Helakuru provides a "Sinhala Preview Bar" which helps you to see what you're typing in Sinhala not-supported devices. You can switch on/off the Preview bar from Preferences.
Enjoy typing in your mother-tongue, Sinhala with Helakuru!
