FAQ
  • Why are there two versions of aFarsi (with and without database)?
  • Unbundled database version avoids unnecessary downloads of the database with each release. However, some users have not been able to download the database, so we have provided both versions. Please try our suggestions under the question "I can not download the database, what should I do?" and if they do not resolve the issue, please try the version which includes the database. There are links to both versions in Download section.
  • I can not download the database, what should I do?
  • In rare cases we have received complaints from users that they can not download the database. Here are recommendations that have solved that issue for them:
    • Disable and then enable your WIFI and try to download the database
    • Uninstall and then reinstall aFarsi and try to download the database
    If these do not solve your issue, please try the bundled version under Download section or contact us at info@farsitown.com with details (device info, Android version) so we can look into the issue.
  • Can I move the database to external SD storage?
  • This is not currently possible. However, we are implementing this feature and it should be avaialable in upcoming updates.
  • Why are ads showing at the bottom of the application?
  • We show advertisement to cover the application development and maintenance expenses. We are also considering a paid version that would not display these ads.
  • What does "Beta" next to "IPA Pronunciation in both languages" feature mean?
  • This feature is in testing phase. Although it is functional, it has room for improvements. We will update our database with more accurate and complete pronunciations using IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) in near future. This will also affect Pinglish/Finglish word entry resulting in more accurate results.
  • Why isn't the database bundled with the appliction similar to versions 1.0 and 1.1?
  • Unbundling the database allows us to release updates to the database and application separately. In cases where we fix minor issues with the application, users would not need to download the database with each release.
  • What is new in Version 2.1?
  • Here are the new features in aFarsi 2.1:
    • Minor bugs that were causing the app to close in rare cases are fixed
    • Smaller file size
