Disappointed. Though it's claiming to be a pan-Indian app, any user can experience the Kannada language got the highest priority; Hindi and English comes at 3rd & 4th... Other languages are just kept as additional for the projection of this as pan-Indian languages' app. Sanskrit and Tamil are forgotten. Whatever search, 80% of the result is shown in Kannada irrespective of the user's choice of language. Only Kannadigas can use this app in its full potential.

It's almost a fortnight since the app doesn't work on my android phone. Please help! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Why is this app down for more than a week now? I could not even access the website on the browser to lodge a complaint. For such an excellent resource, it is difficult to believe how irresponsible the web site owners are regarding maintenance. In addition, the app and website are so very user hostile and take a long time to provide results for each search.
