Review from Kasey Corbin
Power Learning Made Fun In my estimation, It's the best dictionary app on the market that fills the mold of my intellectual world, and I use it daily. I bought the pro to expand my use. Farlex makes my learning experience fun fun fun.
Comprehensive and informative This is a portable encyclopedia. This dictionary succeeds where all my others failed as there are no words you cannot find in it. As if it wasn't enough you have wikipedia available in it in a mobile-friendly format, you have games, word of the day and even highlights on famous events or people. I paid a little price to get rid of commercials and I do not regret it. You also have an offline mode in case you can't access the internet. 5/5.
Good only for English, but there is better After checking out tons of dict, this is a good choice. It's very complete, altought very messy. If you pay 3 € then you have offline dicts et no ads. BUT. For AE there are much better choices (Merriem-Webster, equally free/3€ for no ads, much more polite). For French, attentions that the offline dictionary for this app is very small. The same TheFreeDictionary has a dedicated French dictionary that has a much larger offline dictionary (free/1€ no ads). So, I can not see the user case to keep this app..
Update I use this app all the time. It is much easier to keep track of and manage bookmarks than using computers. I do wish that the search function was easier to use. I can't double tap on words in my browser and look them up automatically either. UPDATE 12/27/16: The newest version is wonderful and makes bookmarking much easier with a touch of the star on any page. Everyone should have this app.
Krusty I'm totally mystified, all I can see is the on line / off line page? Where is the HOME page? Also the registration would NOT allow me to use my existing gmail but instead it made me create a NEW Gmail account which totally messed up my phone. Am I missing the Obvious? I paid for both the pro & the non pro but see no difference!
Farlex is nearly above criticism And that's a good thing. There isn't a person who doesn't think he cannot do something--anything--better than what's been done by others, myself included. However, when language matters, Farlex is the best tool yet to dissect every aspect of words short of a deeper semiotics study, though you can do some now.
It can find very rare words One of the best dictionary I ever found. I am studying theology and the word are very difficult to find among other dictionary. But farlex proof it otherwise. Try searching for words like paresis,expromissor, Neonomianism and fidejussor and you will know what I meant. And for the price of $4.99, it is really a give away consider I have spend around $100 for other dictionary and yet they cannot find the word I am looking for. Thank you Farlex!
