Hieroglyphics Pro for iOS

By Aviametrix, LLC $3.99

Developer's Description

An interactive, self contained translator between English and Ancient Egyptian!

This app explains what the ancient symbols mean, how they were pronounced and how they formed words and phrases. The App contains over 1,160 hieroglyphic signs and over 22,100 words, phrases, titles, epithets, and locations used in Ancient Egypt. The dictionary can optionally add the Horus, Birth, and Throne names of all the known Pharaohs of Egypt.

Hieroglyphics Pro has several modes: Beginner, Student and Pro. Beginner mode uses a minimal set of 200 glyphs and an easy pronunciation guide. Student mode allows choice of over 700 glyphs, organized by shape, and standard transliteration. The Pro mode uses all 1,160 glyphs in Gardiner's classic categories with many additional New Kingdom and later signs. A unique feature of Hieroglyphics Pro is the ability to find glyphs by how often they are used in inscriptions. Adding the common signs to a phrase or word is a snap!

For Students and Professionals, the App now offers direct keyboard text entry of Gardiner codes (i.e., A1, D21, Aa2) or phonetic shortcuts as defined by the MdC (i.e., Htp, nTr, r, etc.). Very quick and convenient!

Hieroglyphics Pro is a modern iOS 13 App, Dark Mode and all. It contains help files and links to both on-line references and to printed books for advanced study.

Hieroglyphics Pro has been developed in consultation with professional Egyptologists.
