The size is about 2.9 GB. The zip file contains two folders, one named “aa” and one “mr” which you should place somewhere on your PC’s drive or on your phone’s SD card. For desktops you should then be able to do “File->Open” and select the index.html file within the “aa” or “mr” folder for root based or alphabetical dictionaries respectively. On smart phones & tablets there are 2 ways you could try to get it installed: 1) Install the free Opera browser (the full one, not the Mini) to go the following url: file://localhost/sdcard, then locate the “aa” or “mr” folder and click on index.html or 2) Install the free Astro file manager and navigate to the aa or mr folder that you’ve extracted from the zip file onto the sdcard. Tap the index.html file and it will either open in your default browser or you can choose any of the installed browser to open the file. Once in your browser you can bookmark it for quick access. I’ve found the Dolpin browser to have the best performance, but the Chrome or Firefox browsers should work as well.
