Great new arrival among Stardicts


This is a great app that is functional and intuitive. In the meantime, Dictionary Universal was the best among the Stardict dictionaries. However, Dictionary Universal has been lagging behind with recent improvements (the app still does not support Split view). At this time, Dicty is well-formed to be more than a substitute for the Dictionary Universal. I would like to expect only two improvements to this app. First, I would like to be able to use the pronunciation voice files as supported by Dictionary Universal. Secondly, I hope that the search interface is improved so that one word at a time can be easily converted into multiple dictionaries (in Dictionary Universal I can swipe fingers left and right to change the dictionaries).

Powerful and slim


By far the best I've seen.

Developer Response

Thank you very much for your feedback!



This app allows me to use my dictionary files on my phone--it's great and very useful.

Unfortunately, however, some definitions make it crash. "Time" in the OED for instance. I've had to switch to another app, because especially longer definitions sometimes simply caused this app to crash.
