Arabic Almanac is a digital version of the famous Hans Wehr dictionary. You can search through the dictionary by using the root letter of the word and the app will display the corresponding page from the Hans Wehr dictionary.
This app was developed to aid students of the Arabic Language in their noble pursuit. The app will remove the need of carrying around a bulky dictionary and replace it with the convenience of your smartphone. Now you have access to all the same information, but at the comfort of your fingertips.
The dictionary can be searched using an Arabic keyboard, or if you do not have an Arabic keyboard the dictionary can be searched using Roman (English) letters which have an Arabic equivalent.

This app could not have been made without the immense contribution from E.Taal and U.Iqbal. I pray that Allah (swt) reward them and their families for their contribution to this app.
Please also remember this developer and his family in your duas.
A few updates for Arabic Almanac.
•Removed the “loading” that would appear at the end of the page
•Fixed the issue where the words would be cut in half for people who have updated to iOS 10

Tremendously useful app
This app is just was I was looking for. Flipping through a PDF copy of Hans Wehr on my phone can be quite cumbersome. The search function makes finding the definition you are looking for very simple. The text is clearly scanned from the book, but the writing is very clear and easy to read. The search function actually allows you to find a definition with the phone faster than you could with a book. I definitely recommend this app for all Hans Wehr users.
I graduated from university 7 years ago and studied in Jordan 8 years ago. At that time we all had to travel with our bully green Hans Wehr dictionaries. I recently started studying Arabic again and couldnt find my old copy. Im so happy this is available on an app now so I dont have to worry about buying a new copy or finding my old one. Thank you!
I was hesitant to give it a four star but I did it anyway for the usefulness of the book but my only complaint is I wish the developers would make the text more clear as the text looks like it was a copy of a copy
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
