Ratings and Reviews
Great dictionary; Problem with search functions
I love this dictionary and use it everyday. It has a ton of idioms and expressions that are super useful and mostly accurate. I have some French friends who disagree with the meanings of certain phrases but that’s to be expected. Overall a great dictionary.
My main caveat with it and why I only give it four stars: I have a lot of trouble searching for verbs that begin with “se” or “s’”. For whatever reason the app sometimes (most times) refuses to allow me to search for verbs like that. It will say there are no results. I’ve tried restarting and reinstalling and it never seems to work. The search function works great otherwise and I have absolutely no other issues when searching for verbs that aren’t prenominal. I would love for this feature to be more reliable since a verb that takes an “se” or “s’” in front of it often has a different meaning than the root verb and I can’t search to confirm it.
Best English/French dictionary out there!!
I've tried most of the other dictionaries on the app store (even the really expensive overpriced ones) and this one is far and beyond my favorite! Being able to "favorite" words is a gem and a feature many of the other dictionaries fail to implement (or implement poorly). I love the inclusion of common expressions - it makes it really easy to find which usage of a word you're really looking for. Also love the fact that this is a universal app - and for $6 this app is a steal!! Anyone considering some of the other dictionary apps out there - don't. This is it (trust me, I've tried them all).
If you translate from English to French you get only English grammar. You have to then copy the French word and reverse the search to get the French conjugation. Lack of imagination on the developer's part.
This problem is worse. A search for a conjugated form of a French word comes up empty. It's like if you typed to an English dictionary 'goes' and got no result. You have to know the 'infinitif' form of a French verb, which makes translating very difficult. That's laziness on the developer's part.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
