Arabic Unlocked: Learn Arabic and Quran - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Both I and my co-founder are non-technical founders with no development or coding experience.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

From a technical standpoint, it has been developing an input system to allow us to update the app content quickly and effectively.

The interviewee, Assad Masud, is one of the two co-founders of Arabic Unlocked. Both the founders of Arabic Unlocked, Assad and Ahmad, have their own journey to Arabic fluency. Their collective experiences gave them the insight to create learning programs ideal for second language learners.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Journey - A journaling app is minimalist in design and does exactly what I need from it.

How long have you been working on this app?

It has been almost 2 years since we initially began development and a year since our initial soft launch.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

Learning a language is a scary thing for most people. When you add onto that the reputation Arabic has as being one of the most difficult languages to learn, it becomes terrifying.

We wanted to break down that misconception and show people that they can learn Arabic AND enjoy it at the same time. Our focus was to provide users with an effective way to learn Arabic that was fun and enjoyable.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

There are many language learning apps out there, but most of them were created with teaching other languages in mind. Although they do have Arabic courses on their apps, the course has been fit into a framework developed for teaching English, Chinese, or some other language.

We wanted to create the best app designed specifically for teaching Arabic. This means the whole app from the content to the features was built around the purpose of ensuring users have the best experience to help them improve their Arabic.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

Our app curriculum has been redeveloped from the ground up over the past few months and the next major milestone is to roll out the new content. After that, we will move on to translating and localizing content to open our app to the world.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Download the app and try it out of course. Share it with anyone you think would want to learn Arabic for any reason. To understand the Quran, to travel, for work, etc.
