Ratings and Reviews
The “Go-to” dictionary for the serious student
The completeness of word/phrase usage & application is not just helpful but essential, highlighting the inadequacy of smaller, simpler dictionaries. I rarely use my 2000 page Oxford hardback any more because of the completeness & obvious portability of this. A truly superior “investment”.
Suggesting an alternative
The Oxford content is first-rate, but this app provides no way to look up words from other apps—something that many other dictionary apps provide (you should be able to select a word and tap "share" to consult any dictionary). Advanced and full-text searches are not possible. The MobiSystems interface feels like shareware. It is bloated, clumsy and, at times, slow, despite being a paid app. On every startup, the splash screen displays for too long. The app constantly nags you to "rate 5 stars." Many reviewers have complained about this, and MobiSystems's response seems to have been to make the message appear even more frequently. It used to stop if you gave the app any rating; now it doesn't (unless perhaps you do rate it 5 stars?). I had to turn off banner notifications to get rid of the red "1" that constantly appeared next to the app's icon. MobiSystems, these things would be easy to fix, and then I would give your app 5 stars! In short, I very much prefer the Collins Spanish Dictionary Complete & Unabridged from developer Cole Zhu (the Collins content is on a par with Oxford's and the interface is better).
So disappointed. Don’t buy it.
As a Spanish teacher and one who travels abroad with students, I’ve been an outspoken advocate of this app for years. I originally paid $24+ - which at the time was outrageously expensive. But the benefits of “use anywhere at anytime” made this worth the investment. It had no ads and was available offline. Then came iOS updates that the original app and Mobisystems weren’t ready or able to handle. When traveling abroad and in places with no WiFi, this app used to be a go-to. Now ... it’s just a run-of-the-mill dictionary. The ads slow down the search and only the premium version is available offline. Save your money. Use Word Reference or Google Translate. Cheaper. Faster.
