Best Swedish/English dictionary app
Lexikon makes looking up Swedish and English works quick and simple. I married a Swedish speaker and the Lexikon app has made a huge difference, allowing me to look up new words whenever I need them. Swedish-to-English and English-to-Swedish translations are equally simple thanks to the app's intuitive design. The app uses an online dictionary, which allows it to provide full definitions for all words and many examples while at the same time taking hardly any memory. It's also fast, taking about 1 second to look up a word. I've had other smart phones in the past with Swedish/English dictionaries that had only shortened definitions that were of little use. Lexikon's extensive definitions with examples and forms (tenses, plurals, etc.) are a huge help to those of us learning Swedish.
The best Swedish dictionary and language learning resource
Lexikon is the indispensable Swedish language learning app for the iPhone! Not only is it a great Swedish-English, and English-Swedish dictionary, it now has been updated to include more words and synonyms. Of course, it has all of the verb forms that are vital to students. I've been using this app continuously since I began studying Swedish - well over a year - and I no longer carry around any dictionaries.
The explanation and examples provided are especially useful since you have a chance to see how the word is defined in Swedish as well as an example also in Swedish.
Importantly, the developer is very responsive and the two times that I contacted him about issues with the database, he got back to me within the same day and fixes were soon forthcoming.
If I were to have just one Swedish language resource app on my phone, it is this one!
Not a good choice
This app is NOT user friendly. You must TTP the entire word you are searching, the app does not accept partial spelling and will not propose words "starting with" a given four or five letter combination. The gender of Swedish words is not easy to find and very few idiomatic phrases are included. I am deleting this app.
