ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Android users can now text each other in Navajo thanks to a new app.
KUNM-FM reports that the company Native Innovations recently released the Navajo Keyboard app to allow smart phone users to practice their skills in the Native American language through text messaging and social media.
The new app comes loaded with all of the traditional Navajo characters and 65 pre-made phrases to help beginners through any basic conversation.

It can also act as a user's primary keyboard.
Native Innovations President Jerome Tsosie says the Navajo Keyboard has been available to iPhone users since February.

But because there are more android users on the Navajo Nation, Tsosie says the android release was in high demand.
