Your iPad 2 or iPhone 4 device can type in multiple languages within the same “Note” email, or even text message!  To make it happen, first, make sure that you enable your device to access multiple languages: Go to “Settings”> “General”> “Keyboard”> “International Keyboards”, then slide the desired language choices to “On”.

Now, all you have to do is begin typing as usual. When you come to a point where you’d like to switch to another language, just tap the “Globe” icon next to the space bar. This will then open up the different language choices (like Russian in the picture above), enabling you to add that personal touch to your message.

This is awesome for speaking with bilingual family and friends, when transliteration just won’t cut it.

A new series on the “Best 30 Apps For…” will start on Monday the 18th, so tune in and we’ll see you there!
