Google Translate updated w/ iOS 7 keyboard, additional handwriting language support including Arabic & Hebrew

Alas, we’re one step closer to an App Store not filled with iOS 6 keyboards. Google released Translate 2.1 today, bringing support for the iOS 7 keyboard released last September to the iPhone and iPad.

The update also expands support for its new handwriting input method to a number of additional languages including Arabic, Esperanto, Gujarati, Hebrew, Javanese, Maltese, Maori, Marathi, Persian, Punjabi, Telugu, and Zulu.

Google first introduced its handwriting input method last September. Google Translate 2.1 is available now on the App Store.

    I use this app a lot. They don’t update it often, but it’s about time they gave it a slight update to better match iOS 7. Still waiting on Google Voice to be updated…
