DDB (Digital Dictionary of Buddhism) and CJKV-E (Classical Chinese) are collaborative works edited by Charles Muller, University of Tokyo. DDB Access gives access to DDB and CJKV-E from iPhone and iPad.
DDB Access is a free app. Any user may access the dictionary by entering "guest" as the username with no password. This will allow a total of 10 searches in each of the DDB and CJKV-E dictionaries in a 24-hour period.
Contributors can get unlimited access by submitting a 350+ word entry as specified at http://www.buddhism-dict.net/contribute.html
DDB and CJKV-E are primarily resources for scholars. Contributors are required to have completed a graduate degree to at least the equivalent of the M.A. level in graduate school program at a fully accredited university, where one has received direct formal training in the reading of classical East Asian Buddhist texts.

Michael Beddow developed and steadfastly maintained the DDB/CJKV-E servers for almost two decades. Paul Hackett has now taken this responsibility.
This version can search both DDB and CJKV-E with one click:
- The user selects preferred dictionary and order.
- Lists can show short definitions for both dictionaries (verbose) or just the first found one (more clear).
- The lookup (right) part of the screen always shows both dictionaries.
This is for all types of lists: search, parse and history.
Bug fixed: keyboard shortcut now working to paste a text (home page)
