First multi-dialect Arabic dictionary, containing dictionaries for MSA, Levantine, Egyptian, and Maghrebi (North African). Users can search by root, Arabic word, and English word. The Egyptian, Levantine, and Maghrebi dictionaries are some of the largest Arabic-English dialect resources ever created, including tens of thousands of definitions and examples, non-transparent phrases, sayings and proverbs. The database is updated monthly with new entries. Future plans are to add other dialects (Gulf, Iraqi, Yemeni, and Sudanese).

My go to mobile dictionary 👌

Love the app. Love the fact you can create flashcards. If there was a way you can create decks to make it easy to review i think that would be helpful. Im beginning to build a lot of saved vocabulary. It becomes difficult to filter through them all during a study session since they cant be broken into groups. Maybe an english to arabic and arabic to english quiz for the words chosen could be very beneficial. I appreciate all of your effort. Love the app, just wanted to share what i thought would help take my experience and possibly others to the next level. I would definitely purchase a subscription or onetime payment for those study options. This is certainly my go to mobile dictionary. Great job!!!

Best tool out there for Shami/Egyptian Dialects

If you’re learning shami and don’t have this app, you’re doing it wrong. I would have paid $100 for it easily given the lack of alternatives. it’s got examples for most of the entries which is invaluable for a dictionary (much more useful in this regard for Hans Wegr). I’m less interested in the Classical Dictionary given how many resources there are but this is the difference between mastering a dialect and stumbling with it for years in a sea of loose threads

The BEST 3amiyyeh dictionary!

Been using it for years now, and it’s simply the best resource out there. The most helpful thing by far is that the amount of example sentences for each word to help put it in context.

That being said, I’m not a huge fan of the most recent update. The font was already small before the update, but now it’s so tiny that it’s difficult to read. Maybe make it larger? Otherwise, it’s the best thing out there.
