Best dictionary for iOS
I used the PC version of this for years and I have to say that it is the best Spanish-English dictionary for iOS. It is a mirror of the big, thick $40 printed version. Pretty good for students.
The content of this dictionary is five stars but this app is 1 star, maybe. I am *CONSTANTLY* asked to review the app. Also, newer makeovers are making the app less intuitive. It's difficult to tell whether "Spanish" or "English" is selected. Also, this app should have a persistent state: when I come back, I'd like to see where I was when I left it last time.
Great content, ok interface
I think Oxford is about the best content you'll find, and they deserve more than 2 stars, but I'm so sick and tired of them trying to force me to write a review, I've decided to punish them for it. It really is annoying and probably legitimately lowers the user experience by at least one star. I want to look up a word, but before they'll let me see the results, they make me close their plea for a 5 star rating. Not cool.
Un excelente diccionario!
This dictionary was recommended to us and we have not regretted the money that we spent on it! We are native English speakers who frequent a country where Spanish is spoken. This dictionary has been very helpful to us!
