PunjabiKosh App Released

Screen_shot_2010_03_31_at_12_48_12_AM_161x300.pngThe Ravi Foundation recently released PunjabiKosh – the first full-featured, mobile Punjabi-English and English-Punjabi Dictionary. Designed for iPhones and iPods, this Punjabi dictionary is the first of its kind created for this platform. The app is currently priced at $6.99.

The app provides for a clean, intuitive and easy-to-use interface thats both attractive and clean. Features include:

  • 30,000+ Word Dictionary
  • Includes Common Punjabi Phrases and Idioms
  • Full Gurmukhi Unicode Native-Keyboard
  • English & Punjabi Search Capabilities
  • Reverse-Definition English Search
  • Vowel Fuzzy-Search
  • Gurmukhi & Shahmukhi Transliteration
  • Part-of-Speech

100% of the profits made from the sales of the app will be donated to fund a project with The Association for the Welfare of the Handicapped. While the group is still attempting to fix some coding issues (the iPhone does not fully support the Gurmukhi unicode font) this application seems to be a great first step.

    Actually, PunjabiKosh 1.1 implemented a workaround for the Gurmukhi font rendering issues and everything seems to be working. Don't forget that according to the Unicode standard the 'sihaaree' character comes after the consonant when searching. (i.e. ? + ? = ??)
