iPhone with Arabic

Peace be upon you

how are you guys? I am very sorry for the long time not posting, but I am really so busy this days, anyways, let us head to the point.

I have got a new book for iPhone development, I have started reading some articles about it and I really like it very much, it worth the effort.

The first thing came to my mind is to show Arabic strings to the screen of the emulator, and the shock was that iPhone doesn't support Arabic, for me I started to work on the emulator and XCode until I finally did it, now I am able to show Arabic in my application on the iPhone, for me it is very important as there is a lot of development will be done on such device and of course it will need Arabic, Here is snap shoot for the emulator after writing the word ALLAH.

Thanks to ALLAH that I did, it was nice try and I learn a lot to just show this word on the emulator.

I hope that I can do something useful to my Arabian bothers and sisters, this is just a step, I will work to get deeper into the system and provide you with open source solution to support Arabic on this magnificent device.

Now I really need to sleep, thanks for reading :)
