Better than my hard copy dictionary
Overall this is a great app for English-speaking students of the Russian language. The entries are more comprehensive than the bulky red dictionary I used to lug around. I particularly like the verb conjugation tables, declension tables, and the ease of cross-referencing words by simply clicking on them. Examples of idiomatic usage are decent. And of course I love the Safari extension that allows me to look up words on a website while I'm reading.
There are a few tweaks that would make this app even better.
1. Conjugate the perfective of all verbs. Right now, only some are fully conjugated. This is particularly important for verbs of motion.
2. Add case usage for verbs. Does a verb take the dative? Genitive? With which prepositions?
3. Add a reference document with a table of declensions. This is a normal one-page feature of hard copy dictionaries.
4. The Safari extension doesn't always recognize a declined word and will come up with zero results. Other times, it will say a word is the perfective of a particular verb, without defining that verb or allowing me to click through to the definition. So I have to open the app to look up the imperfect.
5. Provide English definitions for the abbreviations of the parts of speech.
In conclusion, this app is an indispensable part of my life. I love that I can whip it out to quickly look up a word while studying or in conversation without needing a wifi or data connection. My suggestions aren't criticisms, just ideas to make this app even more useful for people who already have a solid base in the language.
