Description

We wouldn't call it a full dictionary but WordRoll ES can be your handiest and quickest Spanish/English reference in your pocket. It provides direct and precise word to word translations between Spanish and English.

Plus, everything is on one page, probably the longest page you will ever see. The page scrolls as you type right into the entry you look for. No selecting, no navigating, the content is there the moment you complete typing.

Features:
- 38,000 entries in each direction (English to Spanish and Spanish to English)
- Changing translation directions in one tap
- Two column scrolling page presents contents at a glance

---
Note: WordRoll ES does not require Internet connection to run.

Too many wrong and obscure definitions

This is a good idea, but it has too many errors to rely on it.

The good:
1) A quick and easy interface
2) Landscape mode, which is very helpful for longer entries
3) Links to the excellent Word Reference web site, a big plus

The bad:
1) Missing letters leave words unintelligible (the ñ seems to be missing a lot)
2) No capitalization
3) Many wrong definitions
4) Most importantly, too many obscure or archaic definitions for words that make no sense. This is a typical weird entry:
comer in English = comest/t.v./to eat in Spanish;
comer in Spanish = comic/corrode/eat/feed/lunch in English.
Or my favorite, ir = locomote (when was the last time you used that word?)

Wish list:
1) Rank definitions by most used, not alphabetically.
2) Add a shake feature to take you to a random entry for learning new words.
3) Edit the dictionary to make it really useful. (There are similar complaints on the other versions of WordRoll.)
4) Add articles for nouns.

As nothing material has changed in a long time, I guess the developer is happy with the app the way it is. Too bad.

Functional and entertaining.

Easy to locate and pull out the word you need. The app is blended so well with online dictionary. You can click the word to find out more information about it. I love both skins of the app, although the scroll skin look more appealing. For the price, it works like a charm.

WordRoll ES-Spanish/English Translation Dictionary

I am somewhat disappointed in this app because it is intended more for the european application of english spoken in England and spanish spoken in Spain. It is not adequate at all if it is to be primarily used for common english spoken in the US or common spanish spoken in Mexico. There are terms, phrases and spelling of words commonly used in the western hemisphere that are apparently quite different in Europe.
