Wael Saad, a Copt as you may have noticed, has developed an advanced Coptic writing system, called Coptic Notes, for the iPhone and iPad. It is currently supported by iOS7 only; not iOS8, but he is working on seeding an update to support iOS8 and support for iPhone 6/6+ and iPad Air. He has contacted me to make his good work known to a wider readership, and I do that with pleasure – Coptic nationalists and Coptologists should use the new media to advance the learning of Coptic; and Wael has done an excellent job on that front. He wrote: “I thought you might be interested to know that one way to help revive the Coptic language is to increase its presence in the digital world. This is why I developed ‘Coptic Notes’ a powerful iOS mobile app for the iPhone and iPad to help communicate with Coptic online; it’s not perfect yet but close.”

To access Coptic Notes click on it. Please, visit Wael Saad’s facebook for support and update on how you find the programme!

    Hi All, I am delighted to announce the release of an important update to Coptic Notes v2.0.0 as of today you can communicate in Coptic digitally via SMS, Email,Facebook, Twitter, Viber, etc… A workaround (New option in the Settings View) was developed to enable/disable converting the text to an image so that when you click the share button within Coptic Notes you can send the text as an image to overcome the lack of not having Unicode support by Apple.

    Feel free to msg me directly at

    Thank you,
