iGurbani - A powerful Gurbani Search Engine that allows you to search the Sikh scriptures.

With the Grace of God the Akal Design team developed iGurbani with a new database from the ground up. The focus of this app is to allow the user to accurately read the shabads from the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji following a revolutionary style of showing the vishraams. Instead of commas and other punctuation the vishraams are highlighed in a specific color.

PLEASE NOTE: Since the Gurmukhi is from a new source and the database has been rebuilt from the ground up there are some errors that we could not catch during development. We are going to rely on the Sangat to help us identify and correct those errors.

1. Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji
2. Sri Dasam Granth Sahib Ji
3. Bhai Gurdas Ji Vaaran
4. Bhai Nand Lal Ji

- Dr. Sant Singh Khalsa
- Bhai Manmohan Singh Ji

Latest update deleted all favorites


As much as I loved this app, the latest update really messed things up. All favorites were deleted after the update, and I’m not even able to import an old backup file anymore.

Additionally, when you’re viewing a shabad, you now have to scroll up to access the back button/menu bar. Previously, all you had to do was tap the screen anywhere once to bring up the menu bar. This small detail has made a big impact when using the app while doing keertan. You have to lose your place in a shabad in order to access the menu bar.

This is still my preferred iOS app for Gurbani search. But I wish the developer team would respond to feedback and address these kinds of issues.

Amazing App!

VaheGuru Ji Ka Khalsa, VaheGuru Ji Ki Fateh!

I don't write reviews, but I had to for this. You lot are amazing. This is one of the most beautiful apps I have on my phone. The effort you put into this is clear. The fact that its free just adds to the fact that this was done as Seva not self-profit. Thank you greatly. However, with the new update the app has begun crashing. Please provide an update. Chardi Kala!

The best app for Gurbani Search

Java savvy

This is the best app for Gurbani Search I used so far.

This app used to have Bhagat Jaswant Singh's Santhiya option but in the recent version, that is removed. I really miss that. I hope the developers will restore that in the next version.

Thank you for your hard work.
