Great app all around. While I have not used it to look up pronunciation, I have found every word searched and found elaborate and informative definitions. In addition, it is so practical to have definitions and conjugation tables in the same location. My favorite feature of this app is that it records a history of searched words, and has a favorites list where you can save definitions. Fantastic way to learn and remember new words - I speak French and English fluently, and still do this for words to expand my vocabulary. Thanks for this high quality app, Larousse!
Superb reference--please offer Spanish counterpart
This is a superb all-French dictionary that almost never lets me down, even for very obscure words and expressions. I keep hoping that Larousse will offer its all-Spanish counterpart based on the Pequeño Larousse Ilustrado. That would be linguistic heaven.
The pronunciation feature doesn't work. The graphical design is so awful and amateurish that ruins your motivation to learn French. Also, iOS 10 keeps prompting me that "this app may slow down your device and the developer should update the app".
