I downloaded this app and was about to use it. But I stopped right after installing it. I don't understand why Azhagi needs access to my personal photos and contacts to function? I am ready to pay if you have a paid subscription. But giving access to your photos and contacts is totally senseless. Ps. : I have been using Azhagi almost since it's inception on PC. Recently found out that there is a mobile app as well. Always been a huge fan.

I presume the accesses sought during Azhagi app's installation are due to the app being not updated (because of me, as the lone developer, not getting the time to update) to comply with the newer Android versions. You being a huge fan of Desktop Azhagi, I request you to kindly email me (, for me to explain further. Thanks.

Fantastic app for which I thank the developer with all my heart. Apert from Tamil, which is my mother tongue, I use this for typing in Hindi, Sanskrit, Marathi, and Gujarati. It works equally well in all languages taking care of all the finer points. It is also extremely easy to use. I have tried a few other multilingial keyboard apps but none is as good as this. Kudos to the developer.

Very user unfriendly:1. Azhagi plus does not show up in Google Play at all 2. When I try to update azhagi app, nothing happens 3. I am not able to use the speech facility in my desktop. Not very good for a 21st century app. Very disappointed as a true Tamizh anban.
