What’s New

Version 3.4.5

New feature:
Filtering. After searching for a word, you can now lock one or more dictionaries by swiping left to only see the results from those dictionaries. The search results will remain filtered until you change the settings by swiping left again or selecting different dictionaries from the list in the menu.

Fixed issue where the app could close unexpectedly during logout.

Super useful app!

Great app with nice user interface and access to all the necessary dictionaries (I use Danish <-> English). Something I’ve been looking for for a long time!

Very buggy. Danish - English dictionary vanished. Tried deactivating all dictionaries but when I tried activating them again, I was asked if I was sure I wanted to deactivate them?!?!

The GUI also changed for some reason. Worked well few days ago but now its crap - no way to change it back.

Now there are only 3 dictionaries but I have multible copies of each one. This app makes no sense to me anymore. Seems like they took a perfectly fine app and "fixed it" so its unusable now.
