Outstanding And Versatile Tool

I purchased this app in spring 2011. I have used it at least several times a week, if not many times a day since. I work primarily with English-Ukrainian, but have also needed Russian, Slovak, and Hungarian at times. In Ukrainian I use the basic, explanatory, and pronunciation dictionaries. I lived in Ukraine for four months and this thing was the single most valuable tool I brought. It works really well, has tons of useful info, and almost never crashes.

Update: 2017
I have used this almost daily for six years. Awesome product!

The free Russian English alone is first-class

So far I use only the free Russian-English and English-Russian dictionary.

And it is marvelous... far richer than the expensive Oxford version. It includes copious example sentences.

I am extremely happy with this app and now use it as my primary Russian dictionary.

One suggestion for improvement, since English speakers learning Russian are also users: the stress marks of Russian words should be shown. This is vital for foreigners whose native language is not Russian. Most dictionaries have this.

One further note: i own some other ABBY apps and all of them are very good.

Fabulous app for Russian

This app is wonderful for Russian. It’s able to search for and show declensions. The main thing it is missing is accents, which I very much hope they will add.
