Arabic Genie is a software application whose purpose is to help you write text in Arabic using a built-in virtual Arabic keyboard and convert the Arabic text messages to a format that is compatible with Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop, QuarkXPress, AXT fonts, old Windows Arabic fonts, as well as Unicode utilities.

Simple layout

You are welcomed by a clean feature lineup where most of the operations can be carried out with minimal effort. Everything is kept as simple and clear as possible, so there aren’t many configuration settings to tinker with.

Basic functionality

Arabic Genie gives you the possibility to type in the text directly in the primary panel or import data from various file formats, such as DOC, DOCX, TXT, TEXT, RTF, or CSV. You can also make use of the built-in Arabic virtual keyboard for inputting data in the main window.

What’s more, you can undo or redo your typing, perform basic editing operations (cut, copy, paste, clear), convert the numbers using the Arabic or Indian numerals, pick the keyboard layout, use hotkeys for a better control over the entire process, as well as customize the text in terms of font, alignment, and size.

Since it doesn’t require much computer knowledge to work with this tool, even rookies can master the entire process with minimum effort. During our testing we have noticed that Arabic Genie carries out a task quickly and without errors. It is quite friendly with system resources, so the overall performance of the computer is not hampered.

Bottom line

To sum things up, Arabic Genie seems to be the right choice in case you are looking for a simple-to-use application that comes bundled with several handy features for helping you write Arabic text messages.
