Sparsh Apps have now been downloaded more than 525K times across Android and iOS devices. It all started of as a personal set of tools to aid my study of Sanskrit and texts of Sanatana Dharma and I’m still amazed to see these apps continue to appeal to so many users across the globe (and with zero marketing!).
The popular Bhagavad Gita app has been re-published in the Play store. It had to be taken down briefly because a violation complaint was received against the icon (I had no idea that it was a copyrighted image until then). This no-frills app has really struck a chord among the users (100K+ across Android devices) and many had requested that I get it back on the Play store. So it’s back as a new app with a new icon!
Sanskrit Primer is now being made available for free both on iOS and Android devices. Here’s to hoping that more folks will get re-acquainted with the mother of all languages!
It’s quite humbling to see these apps continue to strike a chord with so many users. Thank you all for your suggestions and support!
Sanskrit Primer 2.0 is now available both on iOS/iPhone and Android. This release includes the Dhatupatha which is a listing of all the verbal roots (~2000) available in Sanskrit. This is also a veritable treasure trove for etymologists of the Indo-European family of languages. A large number of the words in these languages (especially Indian languages) can be traced back to these roots.
The dhatus/roots have been arranged alphabetically to aid in quick lookup. The english meanings have also been provided for all these roots.
