HTC One Android 4.4.2 compatibility

Hello,

This dictionary is just the thing I've been looking for, but it appears not to be compatible with my device. Maybe it's because of the recent update of the system? I don't know if this is a common issue, but I would appreciate any kind of feedback. Thanks.

Compatibility with Nexus 7?

Play Store says that the app is not compatible with my Nexus 7 running Android 4.4

Is this going to be fixed?

South Asian Studies Editor:

This is strange since there are no compatibility issues until Android 4.3.  In principle, it should work with version 4.4 as well.  Google is not clear about what issue exists.  We need to investigate this further and it will be fixed eventually.  Thank you for brining it to our attention.  We will inform you once it is fixed.

BB10 app

Hi there,

Just wanted to update that there is now an app for a Hindi keyboard on BB10. It's available for free and it's called Mojo Hindi. I'm not sure whether it could be used in any way to enhance the dictionary app, but I thought I'd mention it just in case. There are rumours that the updated version of bb10, 10.2, will have a native Hindi keyboard but I haven't heard anything official yet.

Also, just a question about the breadth of the app: is it primarily a shuddh Hindi app? I tried looking up words like 'mulaaqaat' and 'taalaaq' but can't seem to find them. Just curious to know the focus of the dictionary.

Thanks for all your work,
James

Hi James, we have had two or three downloads of the BB10 app so far and we have decided to discontinue further development of the app on Blackberry because of the lack of demand.  All of the development is being done for the iOS version, which has seen an impressive adoption.  To answer your question, we have incorproated Platts' dictionary so you should be able to find words from the Persianate register as well.


James Nigh:

Hi there! Just thought you might want to know that a native devanagari keyboard did get added to the Blackberry 10 OS. FYI.

Translation of Epistle in HIndi

What should be the exact word for epistle in HIndi, if we translate the title 'Epistle of Colossians'.

Puru Gujrati: Epistle को हिन्दीमें पत्र या धर्मपत्र कहते हैं।

Thank you for clarification
