You can find two free mobile apps at this link, one for Lane’s Lexicon and the other Hans Wehr, the distinguishing factor being that the results are not shown as scanned PDFs that are difficult to read on a mobile, here the actual text is searchable and way more readable.
The font size of the results can be adjusted to make it easier on the eye along with a few other settings:
By clicking on the blue box link shown at the top of the image above, instances where the word or its root occur in the Quraan are listed:
Clicking on one of the Quranic links should detect a Quraan app if you have one installed on your phone and open the listed aayah in it:

Many thanks to the developer, Gibreel Abdullah, may Allah reward him with good.

Those of you who may need to use the dictionary search facility mentioned in the previous post whilst offline will be pleased to know that you can download the whole thing and do precisely that. The file is about 600MB, once you’ve downloaded it, unzip it, and then from your browser, click: Open File, and locate the file called: “index” in the directory that you downloaded. It should then open up and you can work offline, walhamdulillaah.
Here is the link to download the whole thing: http://ejtaal.net/aa/readme.html#download-for-offline-use.

Here’s a truly remarkable resource for those who regularly need to use Arabic-English dictionaries. On this page you can search both Hans-Wehr’s dictionary and Lane’s Lexicon at the same time. What is most useful is the fact that you can type in the base root of the word you’re looking for in Arabic and it will show you the word in Hans-Wehr first and if you scroll down it will then show you where the same word occurs in Lane’s Lexicon.
