English to Bengali dictionary for mobile

I am happy to announce the initial release of English 2 Bengali Dictionary designed for mobile. Bangla dictionary is now on your pocket and is free. I have used Sun Java Wireless Toolkit 2.5.2 with Mobile Tools for the Java Platform (MTJ), an extention to Eclipse frameworks, to develop this application.

Browse from your mobile. This will start the installation of the application.

Please read all the comments below if you face any problem installing this application. I hope you will find your answers to your problem.

Supported Platform:
This application should run on any mobile that supports CLDC 1.1 and MIDP 2.0. This application is tested on Nokia 3110c and Nokia 6300.

1. This application can be configured to run both online and offline. Default configuration is to access necessary raw data online.
2. GRE Word Filtering can be enabled to view words that appear on Barron’s GRE Word book. This will be helpful to those who are preparing for GRE and want to know the meaning of words that starts with ‘a’, for example.

To access the dictionary offline:
Default configuration need internet connection when you want to find meaning for any word. To be able to find meaning when you are offline (not connected to internet) all files or raw data that are used should be downloaded from the URL ‘‘ to the memory card of your mobile. All the directory contents from ‘A’ to ‘Z’ should be downloaded. Let us assume that all the folders are downloaded/copied to the folder ‘dictionary’ of your mobile’s memory card. Now start the application and go to ‘Settings’ window for this application and change the value in ‘Raw Data URL‘ field that locates to the dictionary folder of your memory card. In most cases mobile’s memory card is assigned the drive letter ‘E’. So in this case our final URL should be ‘file:///E:/dictionary/‘. Dont forget to Save these settings. Optionally you can change the attribute of the ‘dictionary’ folder to hidden so that other application of your mobile do not find this folder.

This application is not signed by any trusted CA. Please let me know if any one can help me in this regard.

I would be thankful to those who give me valuable feedback to improve this application. Thanks in advance to all of you for using my application.
