This program downloads latest dictionary files from the internet, and stores it in the SDCARD/dictdata folder, for Stardict apps to use. We assume that you already have or will install Stardict-compatible dictionary utilities (Eg: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.twn.ebdic [Rated high], ColorDict, GoldenDict, GoldenDict paid ...) separately.
We use the indices maintained by the stardict-sanskrit project (See: https://github.com/sanskrit-coders/stardict-sanskrit , https://sites.google.com/site/sanskritcode/ ). [If you want to contribute new dictionaries to the stardict-sanskrit project or code to this app, that is welcome too - visit sites above.] Short-link to this app: bit.ly/SanskritStarDictUpdater
