Ratings and Reviews
Great when you don't have a dictionary handy
Currently I don't have a large german dictionary handy so this is really helpful in looking up difficult words. It might be even better than most dictionaries in looking up idioms and expressions! And the ability to easily switch languages is cool.
This app has made my life so much easier, with the little indicators of the uses of a word it’s much harder to accidentally say something you didn’t mean to. Additionally it’s very fast and I love that it’s offline. I just wish the Vocab was more organized and that there was a widget so I could look up a word with my phone locked.
I think that the bilingual dictionary is underrated. It is much more useful, in my opinion, to be able to find more information on a single word than to translate complete sentences with errors (e.g. Google Translate).
I also appreciate being able to download the dictionaries for use outside of areas with cell coverage.
Although some of the dictionaries are not as large as I'd like, some are very comprehensive.
Overall, this is a good app and I use it daily in my German studies, and I used it very often while in Spanish speaking countries.
