After popular demand, Lane's Lexicon Arabic Dictionary is now available on iOS. Featuring all 8 volumes, find the meaning and context of a word by searching for it's root letters.

The app was developed to aide students in their noble pursuit of knowledge. It is intended for those who want a more in-depth dictionary with which they can understand the meaning of words, the context with which that meaning is in and some examples of the word in literature.

The dictionary can be searched using an Arabic keyboard, or if you do not have an Arabic keyboard, the dictionary can be searched using Roman (English) letters which have an Arabic equivalent.

Currently, the app only supports Arabic-English translation, however, new versions will be uploaded to add more functionality to the app.

This app could not have been made without the immense contribution from E.Taal and U.Iqbal. I pray that Allah (swt) reward them and their families for their contribution to this app.

Please also remember this developer, his family and teachers in your duas.

Not bad at all!

Although this looks like a pdf upload the fact is this is the best Arabic to English dictionary ever written and it’s available for free on the iOS platform which has helped immensely as I know any place I can open the application to check a word meaning.
Works really well when you type in the root letters in the search field with the response within 1-2 seconds maximum.

This colossal collection has now been put into an application for easy reference. For anyone serious about Arabic reading or translation, do yourself a favour and download all four dictionary applications produced by Omar Jahangir: Lane's, Wehr's, Penrice's and Steingass. They will make your referencing infinitely easier. Many thanks to Omar and everyone else involved, not forgetting Uwais.
