The reader then gets to see the clean ads free mobile application where a reader can search the writer of interest, read the poem of interest, learn the new words, save and even share with the rest of the world. 

The dark mode on the settings tab helps the user to read even in the night time easily. Some of the poetry even have the link to the video and audio directly that also helps the reader to listen to poetry.

Though the internet is a prime factor for the app to run, readers can browse the writings they have favorited even in offline mode.

Final Thoughts

Rekhta has played an important role in the digitalization of Urdu Literature. It has gained the reader all over the world and the way this application runs smoothly is something awesome. The favorite section can even work in the offline mode that makes the reader share their favorite poets’ writings to friends in a small meetup without the use of the internet.

For me, being a fan of Urdu literature, I mostly use Rekhta for the learning of Urdu words and the writings from the legends like Mirza Ghalib and Mir Taqi Mir. The app is perfect for reading and learning. I spend every morning and every evening reading in Rekhta. 

This is the worth reading application if you are a fan of Urdu Literature. Though its older version in the android app had a slight issue, the newer version seems to work perfectly fine.
