  3. There is also an app called Donguibogam In My Hand that has an English text setting, but is annoying to find bc you have to navigate the controls in Korean to set it to English.

    1. Thanks for this Roonja. I’ve been meaning to post about the Donbuibogam iPad App for a while but have never got around to it! I agree the App is a bit annoying, but it’s a useful reference tool.

      For anyone who wants to download, search for 내손안에 동의보감 in the App Store.
