“Rekhta” is a mobile application available on Google Play Store as well as the iOS App Store.
This application is good for those who love Urdu language and poetry. There are tens and thousands of Urdu Poetry pieces arranged separately by the poet’s name. I personally used this app often, and I find it very good in terms of content and readability.
This app is basically a mobile-friendly version of “Rekhta” Website which is run by “Rekhta” Organization and have one of the largest online collection of Urdu poetry. The App has a wonderful browse feature as well as a powerful search option which never disappoints a user.
The App offers Urdu Poetry in three scripts, one is URDU, the other is HINDI and the third is ROMAN. The website is crafted very well for the users that give an ultimate light on the eyes reading option. They show “picks of the day” and some keyword specific and occasion specific poetry on special occasions.
One thing I liked the most about the app is its Audio feature when you came back at home with burning eyes after working all day on a computer screen, it provides a soothing experience when you turn on your favorite poetry in audio. You can enjoy the power therapy it provides.
Just imagine, after a hectic day, sitting on a balcony with a cup of tea and your favorite poetry is running in the background, What’s better than that?
