Shockingly good dictionary app

Everything you ever wanted from a German dictionary app - everything I ever wanted anyway.

You can filter by noun genders, by prefixes or prepositions, by A1-A2-B1-B2 etc. level.

Lots of useful examples for most entries.

If you type, for instance, “ha” in the search bar, first it will show you all the words that begin with ha-; scroll past those and it will show you words that have a prefix but whose root starts with ha- (like “erhalten”); scroll past that and it shows words where the translation begins with ha-

Clear, extremely usable format

The one tiny complaint I have is that if a definition has too many characters for the space, it ends in a “…” and as far as I can tell there isn’t a way to see the whole definition. Unless I’m missing something, which is quite possible.

It has a lot of features I haven’t explored yet. Very grateful for this super handy and thoughtful dictionary

Great app but words missing

I’m a beginning learner of German. I bought the online upgrade of this app and have so far found it very useful! Every entry has a list of different forms of the word, synonyms, etc. and examples in sentences. I also love the unlimited word lists that I can create so I can save new words I’ve learned. The AI chat is handy, if not all that comprehensive. The only problem I have is that some fairly common words such as “Bekannte” are not included. That makes me wonder how complete this dictionary is. I’ll probably need to find a bigger and more comprehensive one later. But for now this one suffices my needs for the most part.
P.S. Some entries are confusing and I (as a beginner-learner) suspect erroneous. For instance, “ziemlich” is categorized in this dictionary as an adjective while it’s more like an adverb. Interestingly, the AI teacher also said it’s an adverb. I don’t know. I’d consult other dictionaries when there’re doubts.

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much for your great and good review. Words like „Bekannte“ are declined just like the corresponding adjective, because they are derived from them. We have planned to add the most common ones as nouns as well. But for now you can have a look at the adjectives (e.g. „bekannt“).

The decision wether a word is an adjective or an adverb is sometimes fluent. But in this case it is very clear. The word „ziemlich“ can be declined and builds comparison forms. Both characteristics of adjectives. An adverb can’t used in front of nouns and builds no other form. But an adjective can usually used like a adverb as well. A good indicator of this usage is the presence of „Predicative“ at the bottom of the adjective page.

I suspect the chat means exactly this special usage. A good practice is to ask the chat a second time, like this: „Are you really sure?“ In most cases, the chat specifies his previous answer.

Should be replicated for other languages

This app is be far the best language resource app I’ve yet used.
I encourage the creators - time and motivation allowing, of course - to use their codebase to create more apps for other languages.
