Mahan Kosh() for Android

By Jagjeet Singh Free

Developer's Description

Mahan Kosh, is a Punjabi language encyclopedia which was compiled by Bhai Kahn Singh Nabha over fourteen years.

This app is based on the data extracted from MahanKosh pdf. As this MahanKosh pdf is not in Unicoded Gumukhi. So, the most challenging task was to first convert it into unicode. For this task, I got a great help from Punjabi Pedia. *******'s in this app are the replaced characters for the occcurence of all Arabic, Sanskriti and Persian characters.



This app allows you to search words within entries. Just start typing with Gurmukhi, for that you can install Google Indic Keyboard

To remove bookmark or history record, long tap a list item to enter selection mode, tap items to be removed, tap Trash Can icon and confirm. A bookmark can also be removed by tapping Bookmark icon when viewing article.
