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.
Best way to learn Amiya
Only thing it could use is a night mode. The white light can be a bit jarring at night; it’d be better if it gave you the option to have white text with a black background. Also you have to use the search button in the app instead of the one on the iPhone keyboard which is a little annoying. Other than that perfect.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
