right-to-left languages & the standard contacts app
Hi, I'm having an issue with the standard contacts app on my iPhone while using right-to-left languages:
While it's standard to list names as "FirstName LastName" or "LastName, First Name" in Latin based languages, when using right-to-left languages (like Arabic & Hebrew) the order is switched in both cases since the name is read from right to left.
However the iPhone contact list app insists on listing the names in the same manner that Latin based languages do, which makes reading the names awkward. Additionally it is all left aligned, which is not ideal for a right-to-left language readers.
Changing the country setting or the language setting does not solve the problem.
I'm hoping it's just a matter of setting, but I can't figure out how to get this done correctly. Any help is much appreciated.
