Academic Room Sanskrit Dictionary is a premium Sanskrit to English dictionary app developed in the Harvard Innovation Lab.
Its massive database provides over one million definitions derived from classical Sanskrit dictionaries by Monier-Williams, Apte, and Macdonell. In addition, references from dhatu-patha (a collection of verbal roots with final forms) are also provided, when available.
All words can be searched using a Devanagari keyboard. Once downloaded, the app does not require internet access to operate.
This dictionary requires a Devanagari keyboard, which can be installed from your device's Settings app.
