About this app

With this app you can transliterate text to runes based on a phonetic correspondence with Latin or Cyrillic letters. This app translates the sounds of words, not the meaning. It is a good source for rune pronunciation and learning about the runic alphabets.

Supports the following major runic families:

• Elder Futhark runes (Common Germanic Fuþark)
• Swedish-Norwegian Fuþąrk (Rök; Younger Futhark, short twig)
• Danish Fuþąrk (Younger Futhark, long branch)
• Medieval rune alphabets
• The runes that J. R. R. Tolkien invented for Cirth (the rune script from The Hobbit / Lord of the Rings)

Supports Ogham (Old Irish script):
• Aicme Beithe / hÚatha / Muine / Ailme
• Forfeda (the letters added later)

For premium users:
• Anglo-Saxon runes (Anglo-Frisian Fuþorc)
• Old Turkic (Göktürk script / Orkhon script / Orkhon-Yenisey)
• Old Hungarian runes (rovásírás)
• Armanen runes (Armanen Futharkh)
• Gothic
• Old Italic
• Glagolitic (Old Slavonic "Glagolitsa", sometimes known as Slavic runes)
• Phoenician

Text is transcribed to runes based on a phonetic representation (English, Russian or language agnostic).

Awesome overall. Some of the symbols don't matching up. For example the letter S in older futhark depicts it as an s with sharp straight lines, even in the "explore alphabet" tab but when using the keyboard it looks like this ᛊ I'm still trying to wrap my head around all this so it confuses me. Can't tell if it's a glitch or if I'm missing something.

I like it but.. a lot of people I send it too don't receive the lettering. they simply get boxes with an 'x' in the center. I'm guess that has to do with the compatibility on their phone as well as the age of the system, as both my iOS and Android do not have this problem. I enjoy it nonetheless. Very good way to learn and teach yourself as well if one wanted too.

Hi. You are right that this is an OS issue. Not all Android versions before 8 (Android Oreo) support runic characters natively. But new phones do, so the problem should fix itself as people upgrade their phones!

I like it. pretty good interface, nicely made, works quickly, well-researched and I could probably go on and on but I'll just touch briefly on it's relatively few flaws and then end this. I wish it supported more languages, but the producers are hard at work on that so I can hardly complain on that front, however my main complaint is hardly any more drastic. I just wish fewer features were behind a paywall. In conclusion... I like it.
