Updated and fixed

UPDATE: Thanks for the update. There was nothing minor about the known problems, but they're gone, now, and this is a wonderful app--lovely and functional.

I would love to love this app. It's precisely what I was looking for, a pure French dictionary. Unfortunately, it crashes when loading words--verbs, mostly, random inasmuch as the words that crash it, but consistent in said words crashing it. Furthermore, the home page shows arrows with no text at their sides, which by no means matches the home screen in the sample image, the one where the arrows are followed by claims of vocabulary volume.

Please test and correct. I'll revise my rating and ammend my review when stability is restored and the product does what it's advertised to do.

My most used app on my iPhone

This is a fantastic & easily-accessed reference for any person with a working knowledge of French. I’ve had this app since it first came out so it’s paid for itself many times over. Highest recommendation.

Stop translating in your head and start thinking directly in the language.

Refreshment needed

Larousse database is definitely the best, but the app really needs some refreshment and modern interface.

The website has been recently updated and you should consider updating the app as well. Especially since we paid this app, you should definitely take more care about the app.
