No internet connection required. Carry a dependable hieroglyph dictionary in your pocket.
Change your manner to visit museums. The louvre in Paris, the metroplitan museum in New York, or the museo egysio in Turin. Visit Egypt without heavy dictionaries.

Aaou is a hieroglyph dictionary, which currently contains more than 23 000 words. It is useful to find the most frequent words. Other words are added regularly (collaboration by email welcome).
You can search by hieroglyphs, transliteration or translation. The number of matching words is displayed on the screen top left. To avoid too many words, it is recommended to select at least 2 hieroglyphs or 2 transliteration letters.
Search by transliteration must be done in alphabetic order.
Search by hieroglyph does not depend on the order of hieroglyphs. After selection add a hieroglyph with + button or remove a hieroglyph with the – button.
The number of words displayed is limited to 50 to avoid having too long list. With 3 hieroglyphs the number of words found is very limited.
The choice of French or English is automatic. It is set by the language used on your device. To change the language, go to settings / general / international / language
To modify the transliteration mode (mode j & q or i & k) go to settings / Aaou / choose the transliteration mode.

I love this app. A true tool for understanding and deciphering hieroglyphics. Well worth the money. The interface takes a few days to get used to. But like anything else you do get used to. Thank you for putting this app out there!

Well Worth It

Create Nickname Was Taken

This is really the only game in town and we're lucky it's so good. The interface can be a little clunky at times, but it's still much easier than a analogue dictionary. Easily worth the price and a huge help to my studies

Egyptian is hard, this app is easy


This app doesn't solve all the problems of reading Egyptian, but it is invaluable in solving what for me is the hardest part - vocabulary.
