Ratings and Reviews
Better than Oxford Italian Dictionary yet free
I spent over €20 to buy the Oxford Italian dictionary and it seems to me this app and it’s associated website is better despite the fact that it’s free. For example, if you look up the conjugated form of a verb with the Oxford dictionary you will usually get nothing as if the word does not exist. For example, andiamo. But with this dictionary it takes you to andare immediately. Furthermore the conjugation tables are much clearer and intelligently laid out. In other words this is a modern app/dictionary, and the Oxford one is pathetic. So don’t be fooled by the names.
I almost never write reviews, but Word Reference is such a wonderful app that I thought I’d write this little blurb.
I’ve used WR for years. It’s like having a language course on your phone. I’m primarily focused on Spanish (although as of this writing I count 15 language dictionaries that are included in the app). You can look up words and have them translated with multiple meanings and subtleties included - even short phrases and expressions that include the word.
Perhaps best of all is that you can tap a little arrow next to verbs and complete conjugation of the verb will be provided - everything from the indicative to the past present subjunctive and negative imperative. Good for us language nerds who actually strive to use the correct grammar and hope to some day be truly fluent in a language.
The designers of this app are real scholars who have done an enormous amount of work. Thank you to them.
Word Reference is incredible - no more paper dictionaries to pack around. I can search a word in Italian or easily switch to English. It gives definitions with sample sentences in both languages; has a section for compound forms of the word, including idiomatic usage; and gives verb conjugation, among other features. It is also my go-to English dictionary. Can’t say enough good things about this app!
