There are about 6 Android Apps on Google play store related to Khmer dictionaries.

Beside going through to each app, I am first introduce Khmer language to some foreigners since when they come across the apps, some of them keep asking what is “Khmer”. I would first recommend you to read a wiki page about Khmer language, Cambodian language in speaking and writing system.

Taprohm English Khmer Dic by KhmerInnovation

Taprohm English Khmer Dictionary is the largest and most word definitions dictionary for android phone.

It’s a paid dictionary, it’s not free. It’s too old app since April 9, 2011 and remain version 1.0.
It has overall rates of 21 and only 2.8 average rates there are many compains on this app.
If comparing to current free app, I don’t see why we need this one or I might be wrong?
But of course, I haven’t bought it so I don’t know detail about it, if you have it, please tell us about this dictionary in comment.



Per my opinion, I think per now, you can try Phum Dictionary which is 3 in 1 dictionaries so that you do not need to install many apps but if you prefer only one kind of dictionary, just try one another.

Of course, my presume should including as well for how many words are there in each dictionary but I could not find these info yet. I will update later if I found out.
