Ratings and Reviews
Had a great repository even for a lesser known language. Also love the flash card exercises.
Translations are accurate and fast. Reverse translations help ensure correct intent.
The example page is for a German dictionary, but a polish dictionary was downloaded. No option to change the language in the settings. Not useful if I want to look up German words.
