Sellinam has got inbuilt auto-correction feature. For example if you type "இலமை" it will be automatically corrected as "இளமை". This options works instantly when you press space after misspelled word and is not available in other Tamil keyboard application.

The keyboard enables user to feed input in Tamil, English and numerical. You can switch between languages by long pressing the space key. Numerical can also be entered by long pressing the first row of QWERTY keys as we do in default Android keyboard, this feature was absent in previous version of Sellinam keyboard. You can also add other foreign languages like Deutsch, Espanol, Polski etc.But there are tons of keyboard for those languages. It is full featured keyboard for Tamil.

Tamil Transliteration:

The keys layout are the same as default Android keyboard. This keyboard also has Tamil transliteration in it, it means that if you type Tamil it will automatically change the input as தமிழ். This option makes things simpler for those who find difficulties in Tamil keyboard. As I said before this keyboard also includes other languages, which can be downloaded optionally.
