Fixed issue with apostrophe in word.
Ratings and Reviews
Great app, just needs to be updated regularly.
I found out about WordReference in my foreign language classes in college; even my most honored professors rely on it, and I use it very frequently too. It is accurate and covers a vast vernacular, but it would be great if the app would be updated to work properly. As of now, I can select which dictionary to use, but the results won’t pull up. I get a crash notification saying there was an error. I just recently updated my iOS to the new 12 version, so maybe that has something to do with it. I’m not able to afford the newest iPhone every time it releases. I hope a new update fixes this issue soon, as I would really like to continue using it.
WordRefrence Itself Gets 7 Stars
The dictionary—the way it is always in progress and professionally moderated—the large and hungry board community, make it almost the only tool you need for learning. It is missing an aspect however, as it provides no way for us to take what it showed us and put it in long-term memory. They main website at least has the lists area, even though it still provides no way to drill those words other than clicking through the list. They could enable exporting to .xml which you can import to Quizlet and Anki. It’s up to them to figure out how people can choose the definitions that they want to study.
I am also giving them a lower score for their design that hasn’t been updated since the 90s. It would be cool if they let the community vote on it.
Can you imagine this. The app does not give you the conjugation of être!! Pretty important word to neglect.
UPDATE: It does, if you can figure out how to get to it. For MOST verbs, if you look up the French verb and see the English definitions, you are looking at the top-left tab: French-English. If you click the top-right tab: French Verbs, you get the full conjugation. But not for être. While viewing the English definitions, if you scroll to very near the bottom of the page, you find a link, in French, that gets you to the conjugation. I know the app is free, but really. It isn’t what I would want as an example of the quality of my work.
