Ratings and Reviews
Great content, very good software
I have tried several reputable dictionaries on the iPhone. This is my favourite. By contrast, although The Oxford Dictionary of English app has very high quality content, that piece of software is poorly designed and full of advertising, even though it's the most expensive by far. This Collins dictionary app is my favourite. Not only is the written content good and the software highly functional and easy to use, but the audio package that comes with it is of very good quality, unlike others I have tried.
Quality definitions from a trusted name in a bespoke, well designed and inexpensive dictionary app.
Collin's really impresses
Excellent feature rich dictionary, that is a pleasure to browse
