I find the dictionary useful but not as much as I hoped. I'm disappointed that there is no additional information on the search term, like synonyms in the source language. I'm disappointed also with the search function, which is too simple-minded - even a blank space entered by mistake in the search box will break the search - not to speak of searching for words which are "close" (i.e. tolerance for spelling mistakes). Finally I would have appreciated a possibility to jump to the translation of a word by clicking it (i.e. I see an English word in the text and I want to see how it's translated into French, or vice versa). A last small imporvement I'd like to see would be that if I close the app and reopen it I will see the screen where I left.
Functionality is good on phone, limited on tablet. Would greatly benefit from expansion of lexicon. Developer unresponsive. This works for a basic dictionary, I wish they would expand it to a more complete version (and would pay for such increased usability!)
Menu cannot be opened First off, the content of the dictionary is first rate and it is worth paying for. However, the app has clearly not been updated or tested with new devices for some time. On my phone (Android 4.4.2) it works fine, but on my tablet (Android 6.0.1) which does not have a menu button, the menu is not accessible, which means that the history and bookmarks features are not available.
Great program, needs word add feature I really love this app, I use it all the time and it works wonderfully with defintions, pronounciation and even a conjugation chart. Yes, the word pronounciations require a network connection, but that's really not a deal breaker for me. My only big issue is that this app is missing a bunch of common words (reread?) and it doesn't give you the option to add them yourself. Please add this feature and the app will be perfect!
Excellent dictionary Head and shoulders above the rest. Each word presented in a variety of idiomatic contexts (see screenshots) without which you're flying blind or speaking Franglais. Quibbles about implementation far outweighed by quality of the content. Full conjugation of each and every verb; you won't need a Bescherelle with this in your pocket.
Love this app, I've been using it for years now, first with my iPhone and now with my Android as well. One thing that would be really great though, is if the android version had the option to sort your bookmarks alphabetically like it does on iOS. That was a super helpful feature on iPhones, and would love to see that on Android too!
