Don't get this app - instead, go for the Larousse English-French dictionary, which is better than this in every way, but for around 1/8th of the price. I expected WAY more from Oxford and an app developer working so extensively with dictionaries, but this is essentially the Larousse dictionary with an inferior interface. You can't search conjugated verb forms (although can't do this in Larousse either), it doesn't have audio pronunciations (Larousse has it), and you can't choose your primary language (Larousse does this). It has language notes, but it may as well not have, because it's presented in huge slabs of text that aren't indexed nor searchable. It also has an offline mode which may be useful for some folks. Oh, and forget about the Sony Small Apps support - all this does is let you pretend that you are running this on top of other apps - the interface isn't optimised at all and you have expand the widget to full size to even read the definitions at all. Might as well just switch between apps using the normal app switcher interface seeing as that's where you go to open the small app anyway. A disappointment in every way.
Good reference but its frustrating that phrases and phrasal verbs are not searchable
Great dictionary. Good for self study French.
Suggestion Suggestion is that you make a button on the front for quick language switch
No pronunciation of words Excellent written dictionary, but... They rely on phonetics only. Seriously, who in the world prefers reading the phonetic alphabet to listening to speech?
Great app. I would have liked it more if this app also provided sample pronunciations.
