iOS Devanagari bug

Hello. For several years (as long as I've tried to use it) the Devanagari font on iPad and iPhone has contained a bug, so arha (for exmple) will always appear as arhe. This means I cannot use iOS for preparing Sanskrit texts. Since the bug affects this dictionary (try looking up arha) I wonder if you could push Apple to do something about it! Thank you. Guy

Ipad app crashes frequntly

I use it regularly on the ipad air (ios 7) but it crashes frequently. Especially with words that have a rru e.g. Mrugah, tarka etc
It just exit the applicatio. This is really disappointing. I am in a Sanskrit class when this happens and everyone just laughs at me for using this

Problem with Sanskrit Dictionary

I was very excited to learn about your Sanskrit Dictionary. I was very disappointed when I was unable to get it to work on my iPad. I type a Sanskrit word into the search field, tap the return key and . . . nothing. The screen remains black, unless I tap the area immediately below the search field, in which case the app quits.
I have installed and am using the Hindi keyboard. I tried restarting my iPad. I deleated and redownloaded the Sanskrit Dictionary, but it still doesn't work for me.
I am using iOS 6.1.2 on an iPad 2.
Any suggestions?

Arjuna Arnold: That makes sense. Fortunately I also have the Sanskrit Dictionary on my iPhone. That's the one I usually use to avoid changing keyboards all the time.

South Asian Studies Editor:

Greetings. The dictionary will be upgraded once a stable release of iOS 9 is announced. We have no plans to upgrade it for the beta version since it is not stable.
