    Very easy to use, and very handy to have.
  • Barely functional

    Beyond the main menu, the definitions page is simply a web browser which unfortunately has no control over its appearance except for text size. Double tapping zooms in/out but it’s choppy on an iPhone XS. Further, you would expect to be able to tap on other words and be taken to their definition; it appears this is the intent (shows selecting the word 50% of the time) but does not actually work.
  • Phenomenally irritating splash screen

  • Extensive examples of usage

    This dictionary has a great strength. That is the extensiveness of the examples of each word used in a phrase or sentence. For most words there are many examples. At the same time, this may be a weakness. Some entries provide examples only and lack a simple listing of possible translations of a word. For an advanced learner this is fine, indeed excellent because examples are a better way of conveying nuances of meaning and usage in context. But for a beginner this is a less satisfactory solution. For verb conjugations, the reliance on verb tables is a weakness. They present a model verb whose conjugation is similar to that of the verb you have looked up, are in small print, and do not show all forms of all tenses. For an advanced learner, this is fine. For a beginner, it may be less satisfactory. Some competing dictionaries list every form for every tense for every mood for every verb, a much more satisfying solution it behooves this dictionary to adopt. Overall, I’d say if your knowledge of Spanish is already well advanced, this dictionary will serve you well. If you’re a beginner, other less sophisticated dictionaries may be adequate. Later you can graduate to this one, which as I wrote at the outset is commendable for the many examples of usage it provides.
