Our mini-review of English dict apps.. We just checked out tons of dictionaries for my wife that has to teach English. At the end the best is the (real) Oxford Advanced Learning one, but it costs 28€.. This comes a close second best, but at 3€. Only problem, it is AE, and not BE at all. At the end she kept the Oxford and I kept this one.. For a free solution (although much more messy) check out TheFreeDictionary.
Everyone needs a Dictionary app like this! Speech, especially English is spoken or pronounced differently around the world and often abused. However, I can't remember every English word out there, I need a Dictionary. So much to learn, but not enough time in the world, great reference at your literal fingertips. It's nice to lookup not only the meaning of words, but hearing the words spoken correctly is an added bonus of this dictionary. The word games help challenge what I know or learn what I don't. Awesome
Fun extras I really enjoy the games. It's replaced the other time wasters I had on my device. After the game you can review all of the vocabulary you encountered and then favorite what you want to look up again later. I hope in the future that the games expand the vocabulary, or maybe work in some kind of memory so that words you miss frequently appear again.
I for one am very disappointed in the voice recognition of this App. I have even tried contacting the Developers to see if there was anyway of improving its ability to recognize voice commands. I was told to speak more clearly and then a quieter place. This was a totally unprofessional responses. As of May the Latest update to the app is a very big improvement. Thumbs up
Value for money is evident I have been using the App for four years now. It's value has recently increased by adding "word games" like "name a thing" and "difficult words" which keeps my grade six daughter at her fiercest edge in English, her parents third language. Great App.
Together with Wordweb and Chambers my favourite by far. The small price for the premium version is a price well worth paying. It hasn't let me down yet, even when I've thrown it some words peculiar to a niche discipline. The layout and colour scheme are just right for the small screen. Two or three euro for this? Don't think twice about it.
Bug fixes and stability improvements.
