In February 2019, in celebration of UN Arabic Language Day, Umniah launched The 8Log, a blog that is the first of its kind in the Jordanian telecommunications sector that aims to enrich the availability of original Arabic content on the Internet. With its rich and diverse content, The 8Log provides reliable sources of information and knowledge, as well as specialized material on a variety of subjects including cybersecurity, health, sports, art, culture, and entertainment, and sheds light on innovative Jordanian initiatives as well as success stories that stand out in the world of entrepreneurship.
Noon Library was established in 2019 by an innovative Jordanian youth passionate about improving Arabic content in all its forms and who believes that the educational system is not limited to schooling, but rather must include teaching students how to research, learn and add to their knowledge outside the curriculum. The app includes the Children's Library, the Young People’s Library, the Curriculum Library, the General Culture Library, and the University Library, each with including several branches in a variety of streams, including scientific, literary, cultural, developmental, religious, social, educational, to name a few. This offers readers an unlimited selection in Arabic that is easy to download, use and share with others. Soon, the app will launch an official website with exciting new features.
