Spanish/English version - A weak offering from Barrons


Bought a paper copy of Barrons Spanish/English dictionary.
After a bit of hassle, managed to download the complimentary e-version - though in line with other reviewers, it was a different version, the German/English one. Pretty disappointed in what seems to be pretty casual indifference upon Barrons part to fix a fairly minor issue and ensure that their customers actually receive their bonus offerings. Hard to interpret some other attitute here, especially considering some other reviews already exist.
At any rate, it’s a good, comprehensive paper dictionary offered with a free-gimme sort of ebook - just spin the wheel and see what you get.
Though it’s a small thing, Barron’s, you’ve lost a couple points in failing to take the simple advantage in assisting your customers to appreciate your company further.

A poor quality Product


I downloaded and paid for ($18) the German-English dictionary thinking it would be like the “Shorter Oxford English Dictionary” or the French “Dictionnaire Larousse”. It is enormously disappointing. The interface is slovenly, messy and poorly conceived. It looks very 1990ish. Don’t waste your money on this product. I’m certainly sorry I did. Also I wanted the App on my Ipad, not my computer; there seems no way to transfer it. Barrons: A plague on all your houses.



There is nothing free about this app. it only pretends to be. You pay a hefty price for it to use it only once.
