This app is extremely fast, which I really appreciate. (Pro tip: to make it even faster to use, there's a setting to open the keyboard first thing when you launch the app.) The dictionary content is generally great - it's from the French Wiktionary. I have the Larousse too, but these are often more complete - plus this app is far nicer to use than Larousse's.

It's free, no adds, works great, lots of features, seems to be based on (French) Wictionaire or Wikitionary so very complete, nice features, conjugates, pronuncation including speaking the words, and customizations, just works. Seems vastly underated should be at least a 4.8 on average, maybe higher. I think it even works offline but haven't tested that. Get it, use it, see if it isn't one of the best. (Linguee is good too.)

Great app, with all the definitions you could possibly need. Never crashes. I have the English and Spanish versions also and can go back and forth between them as needed. Handy for travel and reading books and newspapers in the target language. Just wish there was a version you could use on an iphone or iPad. Highly recommend.
