Review from Le Furieux
Good databases (when not broken), obsolete UI in the age of Material Design ■ I'm a lover of Chambers dictionaries, however there are some issues with those offered here. "Ultimate" (the full Chambers 13th Ed.) has many entries not in the index because of hyphenation: e.g. "commando" (written "command'o") is under "command". Otherwise, great dictionary. ■ "Concise" (actually "21st Century") LACKS ALL THE ENTRIES STARTING WITH "Q"! The defective database is 52CA_0.27.sdc. Moreover, some entries are truncated, e.g. "lame duck" only has 2 of the 4 defs in the printed ed. I've checked a lot other, they correspond to the letter. ■ I e-mailed them about these issues, but they couldn't care less! ■ Beware, the option to D/L the optional audio files is hidden in each dict. under Settings, Components. ■ If you don't need the audio files, the Ultimate is much cheaper from WordWeb Software, as "Chambers Dictionary".
I purchased Chambers Thesaurus Ultimate Edition after downloading this 'free' app. and I'm very happy with the content and usability of the application I bought. Negative ratings for this app. are mostly down to its misleading description. The developers should really think about adding the word demo/trial/taster? to avoid the disappointment that this is in fact not Chambers English dictionaries all bundled up and provided free of charge but instead a 'shop window' to allow users to try their offerings before deciding to buy.
Misleading Name. It's not free. When installed it requires registration code
