The content is okay but the app driver is poor. Mobisystem wake up, do something better. The word lookup you're taking glory for, only works when the dictionary is open or running in background, unlike Oxford advanced learners and Cambridge advanced learners which can lookup words from anywhere through share, even when not running on background. Learn from them please! Your developers are either lazy or unskillful. I would advise Collins to start developing there own apps driver and not to be over dependent on mobisystem. I'm only giving 4star for the content, minus 1 star for the poor app driver belonging to the mobisystem. We're tired of mobisystem one style of app driver for over twenty different dictionaries from different sources. Change!!!!
Rated 1 star. Always used this on my previous phones. New version seems to require me to pay again? Surely I am not the only person to switch phones every so often...
Very disappointing. It always asks for download offline content even if i downloaded multiple times. Tell me solution if any.
I paid the subscription but every time I try to download the offline file it never works as it keeps asking to download it again. Very poor. Will need a refund unless there is a fix.
I still hate the new interface, but in all fairness to the content, it's a good dictionary. It's nice to have Collins's IPA transcription for words rather than the accented Latin characters common in dictionaries from the States. Definitions in the CED tend toward concision over detail, which I find helpful in many cases. The interface—while cluttered and bright (I'd love a night mode)—is quite useable once you're past the welcome screen. The interface in this dictionary is identical to that of the American Heritage Dictionary. The same developer makes both, and they simply load a different database into the same skin for these two dictionaries' separate apps. A nice feature of both the CED and AHD is the ability to export the definition to Anki flashcards, including the IPA transcription, a big help to EFL learners.
