    With the latest release of 2.2, Arabic is now supported. Somewhat...

    What about connecting the letters? My Evo with 2.2 (rooted) displays arabic fonts, but they are disconnected making it worthless almost when reading online. The Arabic keyboard app helps connect texts when typing, but this is only inputting - displayed Arabic fonts are still disconnected.

    I've done some digging around and I'm still unable to find a reliable way to get Arabic fonts to display correctly.

    I would really like my whole UI localized into Arabic, and according to Arabic Android, this shouldn't be hard once Arabic is supported (which it is partly, now). https://sites.google.com/a/ut.utm.edu/arabic-android/android-native-arabic-support

    Can anyone out there help me with getting Arabic fonts to correctly connect on my Evo? I'll buy you lunch if you can get my whole UI localized as well.

    :)

    Thanks!

    Hi there

    I have a HTC Desire and I am trying to get the Arabic to join with the previous letter. The link that you have given has a version for HTC Desire but does not support the latest update by HTC. I have got the latest update since I updated around 2-3 weeks ago so I was wondering are there any other solutions??

    Please help I really need joint Arabic fonts on my phone.:(

    To be able to get arabic letters connected, use OPERA web browser, try it and let me know.

    yes with opera you can read arabic sites, but this doesn't solve the whole problem, reading arabic sms, facebook, etc....
