When it works, it's nice, but I wanted to avoid having multiple dictionary apps for different languages, and it keeps losing my PT-En dictionary and just searching everything in the Fr-En dictionary . Dictionary still shows installed when I look it up, but can't be used and doesn't appear in the "installed" tab. I don't want to have to keep clearing the cache and/or reinstalling every other week.

I always said Lingvo is the best dictionary application. Both PC and Android. The quality of dictionary articles and the visual style of them are beyond comparison. But a couple of days ago when I've made factory reset, the only app reinstalled wrong was Lingvo. I can not restore all my purchases (I spent a lot for them). The app even can not load a list of dictionary. I see rotating circle and "Lingvo server is not available". What a shame. UPD. Today it works.

I've been using this app for about four or five years. The vocabulary is not very rich, so for the less common terms I use other dictionaries. There are 2 reasons for me to use ABBYY: 1) it works offline 2)it provides different forms of words, which is handy for such languages as Latin or German. However, I wish the vocabulary was larger. And also what did you change the red design to a blue one for? It feels like I'm using some other app instead of ABBY and the blue also a bit depressing

Hello! Thanks for your feedback! Already passed your comment to the developers. Regarding our design, we have 5 different app themes and Nostalgic theme looks exactly as the previous one. Have a nice day, ABBYY Lingvo team.
