YiddishK - Yiddish/Hebrew Keyboard by Lawrence Kay, is a free iOS keyboard (for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch)
that supports standard YIVO Yiddish orthography.
Hebrew Character Encoding for Internet Messages describes a
protocol for transmitting Hebrew in the ISO-8859-8 character
set. Since it only encodes the 27 Hebrew alphabetic characters and no
diacritics nor extended Hebrew characters such as Yiddish digraphs, it
has limited use for Yiddish.
Ulrich Greve's Free Downloadable
Yiddish Software site has great, original software with the
Yiddish language featured front and center. Examples: a Yiddish OCR
program, a Yiddish-English
Dictionary program, etc.

Raphael Finkel's Yidishe Shraybmashinke (Yiddish Typewriter), a
tool for Composing Yiddish through the Web, and also for translating
between various character sets, document formats, and encodings, at http://www.cs.uky.edu/~raphael/yiddish/makeyiddish.html
. It lets you compose a page of Yiddish text, typed in
transliteration, in a number of formats, including images (GIF's) that
you can immediately see. It also can produce Unicode documents in
Windows Hebrew Code Page 1255, MacOS Hebrew, Unicode UCS-2 and UTF-8
formats, and PostScript files. A heymish Yiddish font is also
provided. A truly wonderful resource. Thank you Raphael! Lang lebn
zolt ir, Rafoyl!
