Best Thai Dictionary

This s far and away the best dictionary for Thai. It works offline, gives great example sentences, and has a transcription search feature to help find words you can say but aren't sure how to spell. If anyone reading this also studies Mandarin, this is the Pleco of Thai dictionaries. No ads and a flea dedication to the language. I would pay for add one if the developer creates them.

Very helpful

I find this app very helpful to my Thai studies. It has a plethora of vocabulary and the categories make it easy to find groups of words.

One thing that would make the app easier to use is if the “bookmark function” wasn’t as inaccessible. An app called ‘Imiwa?’ Which is a Japanese-English dictionary has a really good example of the quick bookmark function. If the star or bookmark function was available when on that word, it would make the app easier to use for studying.

Used for over a year now

I have the other Paiboon app, and this app has more translations and extremely helpful example sentences. I have been using this app for over a year now and was the critical factor for my fluency in Thai. Freaking hard work was put into this bad boy right here and it's more helpful that any other app for Thai, hands down.
