Fast, reliable and easy to use

Brilliant App. I was looking into other stardict dictionaries compatible apps for my Iphone 3gs and decided on this one because of good description and documentation on the website. Had no problems with installing dictionaries and very pleased with performance and functional. It is very easy to use, will reccomend to anybody who require an online dictionary.

For some reason the App cannot be found if you search stardict in the Itunes but it is stardict compatible.

9/10

Best of all the Stardict dicts,but Wordfree has a wildcard search which is a great feature and would greatly enhance this App.

Great App!!
