Gaston Santiago released the 1st Alibata (Baybayin) iPhone app now available on the app store (will launch iTunes) for $.99. Basically you click on the Baybayin glyph on the right and it shows you the Roman equivalent. Pretty simple and easy to use.

Here’s something I was thinking of last year while brainstorming with my festival partner, Ray from Malaya Designs. I eventually made a magnet Baybayin characters for the workshops we did at the Pistahan Festival last year. Here’s an early shot of the work in progress.
