Ratings and Reviews
I’m a non-native student of Arabic. This is a great, easy-to-use, fast dictionary.
This is a revision to an earlier review I wrote and to raise my rating to 5 star. I have used this program for about 6 months now on a daily basis. I have used other electronic Arabic-English dictionaries in the past and this is hands-down the best. Being able to parse the morphology is even handier than I expected when I bought it. This is just an outstanding piece of work and resets the standard. I have notified the developer of a couple of root errors that I found which they gratefully accepted and corrected.
If they would just add an English > Arabic function it would move up into the luxury class.
Translates Only from Arabic to English
When I purchased this, I didn't realize that "Arabic-English" meant "from Arabic to English" and only "from Arabic to English." I also foolishly believed the word "bilingual" implied "bidirectional" translations. Whoops. Aside from the bit of confusion and disappointment I experienced when I first purchased it, this is a great app. Although considering it only works in one direction I think it is overpriced by about $10. I'm hoping that a future update will include English to Arabic translations as well, but I have a feeling that's pretty unlikely.
