The Tibetan Dictionary combines several dictionaries into a single app. Words and definitions can be searched for in both english and tibetan, taking advantage of the Tibetan language support built-in to iOS.

It is a universal app and is optimised for both iPhone and iPad.

The following dictionaries are included:

* tsig mdzod chen mo
* dag yig gsar bsgrigs
* New Tibetan-English-Chinese Vocabulary
* New English-Tibetan Dictionary
* Rangjung Yeshe Dictionary
* Mahāvyutpatti

To type using tibetan script, you need to turn on the tibetan keyboard in the main Settings app:
Settings > General > Keyboard > International Keyboards > Add New Keyboard...

You can then select the Tibetan keyboard by tapping the 'world' icon on the keyboard, next to the spacebar.

== Keyboard Shortcuts ==

Command-F: Activate search bar
Command-Shift-F: Activate search bar for Search All Text
Tab: Move between search bar and search results

Best Tibetan dictionary

Amazing and helpful app. It has both Tibetan dictionary explanations and English (and sometimes) Chinese translations. Sometimes the app gets stuck and doesn't show any results, and you have to close and reload. But still a great app and service.

Highly Recommended!

Equally functional for studying contemporary as well as classical Tibetan language. Compiling many dictionaries, it is convient because it does not require you to carry multiple dictionaries. I highly recommend this app for any learners of Tibetan.

This app is very useful to us. In the future please add more english and Tibetan new sciences words which is more reliable to use!
