Is Arabic supported on Android devices?

hey @bader_mouti,. which application was this?

Are these apps in English or Arabic?

We’re actually quite a small company and there are an enormous amount of moving parts in our platform. The developers on our team are highly experienced and some of the smartest, hardest working people I’ve ever met, however they only have 24 hours in their day just like you and I.

We try to get to as many issues as we can but when something is broken or there is downtime that gets priority.

As I mentioned above, if you can help me our with reproducing this behaviour the we can work on finding out what’s happening here.

Thanks for your patience and understanding as we are not native Arabic speakers.


Dear @domhnallohanlon ,
What @bader_mouti needs is not Arabic per say but the direction of text which you can test with Arabic as well as Hebrew. Both use RTL text direction.

If you can fix the direction then his problem is fixed.

in English but its have the same problem
if the user phone language is arabic

we are not native Arabic speakers.
you dont need to a Arabic speaker … the problem will show up even is the app on English but the user phone is on Arabic

you will understand what is the problem if you download the app in the link above on your android phone and test it when your phone is in english language and then change your phone language to Aabic and then open the app you will see what the problem is and how the direction is change

Thanks for your patience and understanding
Trust me, when you work on something in all your seriousness and determination,
Then you discover that your work has gone in vain. You will have a reaction just like me

@bader_mouti yesterday’s release included an update for how RTL languages are handled on Android devices - can you upgrade to the latest version of Thunkable Live and let us know if that resolves this issue for you?
