    Hebrew for BlackBerry



    "עברית"

    Chances are, if you can read the word in red letters above, then you can already read Hebrew...



    With yesterday being the final day of Hanukkah, I see it fitting to let our Hebrew speaking friends all over the world know about the Hebrew for BlackBerry app. If you are Israeli you will know that the Storm and Torch touchscreen devices are not sold in your country. And if you happen to come across a touchscreen device, you will have no luck with Hebrew support. Until... I stumbled across this app many months ago when I was trying to find Hebrew support for my Storm device. The app works great and does exactly what it should. This app will install a Hebrew keyboard in addition to your English keyboard on your phone. So, what is the news? Well, it seems that this app now supports OS 6 for the Torch. Although, I would not recommend this app for a device with a physical keyboard, like the Curve, Bold, ect, unless you have the patience to memorize where the Hebrew letters are in relation to the English keyboard layout. This App is free to download, but don't hesitate to donate to the developer if you can benefit from it. So I bid you farewell and Chag Sameach!


    UPDATE: Since I have written this post, Hebrew support has now become available within the BlackBerry operating system. In most cases you will have to manually install this language pack via Desktop Manager.

    UPDATE: Hebrew for BlackBerry has been updated to support OS 7.

    Update: The Hebrew for BlackBerry site has changed domains. You can now download and install Hebrew on your BlackBerry via OTA from... http://www.slsapps.com/

    Lol, no prob. With a simple search, you can find a ton of free sites out there that can teach you to read and speak Hebrew.

    Thanks for the pointer for those who would like the physical Hebrew keyboard.

    Do you have a touchscreen device? Because once you install the software I believe there is a button on your screens keyboard that will allow you to switch from English to Hebrew. You may also have to adjust settings in Options...

    Hi Nettie,

    From my experience when I had my Storm device, with the touchscreen keypad there should now be a button toward the bottom of the keyboard that you push to switch from Hebrew to English and vice versa.

    Also, you may also be able to just install the Hebrew language pack on your device from Desktop Manager. This would also give you access to Hebrew typing on your keyboard. Most operating systems are multi-language but you have to manually select which languages you want to install when you are in DM.

    I emailed the creator on this. Looks like content is gone. I'll post back here when or if I get a response.

    So the creator of the Hebrew for BlackBerry app has told me that the site will be down temp as he finds another place to host his content. I'll update when it's back up and running again.
