About this app

Tipitaka for Android is an app for reading the Theravada Buddhist Pali Tipitaka, commentaries and sub-commentaries in Pali. It is suitable for advanced students of the Pali language, as it does not include English translations. It does have several Pali-English dictionaries.

Features:

- Entire Pali Tipitaka, Commentaries and Sub-commentaries, as well as other texts
- Text search and in-page search
- Bookmarking
- Concordance for switching between Mula, Atthakatha and Tika passages
- Pali-English dictionary resources, including the PED, CPED, CEPD, and DPPN.
- Instant dictionary lookup with declension matching by highlighting words in text (Android 3+)
- Pali-English quiz to test vocabulary

Android Tipitaka is based on the free and open source E-Tipitaka project by Sutee Sudprasert:

https://github.com/ssutee/E-Tipitaka-for-Android

and is available on github itself:

https://github.com/yuttadhammo/atipitaka

Tipitaka files are taken from the VRI tipitaka here:

http://tipitaka.org/romn/

On first run, the app will download the required database file (20+ MB). That's the only time it uses the Internet; there are no ads, etc. If it doesn't download the database properly, download the file here:

http://static.sirimangalo.org/pali/ATPK/ATPK.zip

put it in your sd card directory and unpack it with a file manager.

As others have noted, English is unavailable - you get an error message when you attempt to download/install it. So unless you are (already) fully fluent in Pali, this will be of absolutely no use to you.
