    Every time I start it up it is in English-to-French no matter how I try to set it the opposite! Irritate the user! That’s what it does!
  • Great dictionary with many annoyances

    The dictionary itself is very comprehensive. But as reported by others, there are many small issues that are annoying every time you use it. One perhaps not mentioned is that you are forced to choose a default direction (French to English or vv.) to which it always reverts. It won't stay with your most recent choice. If your default is F->E but you have a few hours of E->F, you may have to switch direction repeatedly. Then you have more steps to clear the text box and get the keyboard back. Support is non-existent. I have written many emails to Mobisystems over several years with questions and suggestions but have never gotten a single substantive response. All I get is a robo-reply saying I will get an actual answer in 24 hours. The latest update (12/23/18) wiped out all favorites and “recent” with no warning. Add that to the inability to save favorites any other way and I’m moving my rating down to two stars.
  • Great !

    It’s a very good, very thorough French dictionary. However, it would be better if they wouldn’t keep prompting every so often to rate them with 5 stars (the prompt gets in the way of typing the word you want to look up, so you have to dismiss it before you can continue). Also, I have their English dictionary as well, and it would be nice to be able to look up the current word there, through a hyperlink, or at least to be able to cut and paste a word from the French dictionary into the English one (or to paste it anywhere else, for that matter). For example, a French word is sometimes defined with it’s English cognate. If I knew what the English equivalent meant, I wouldn’t be looking it up. So then I have to go out to the English dictionary to find out what the French word really means, in plain English.
  • Extremely well done

    I find all the words I need. Always. And easily. The app is intuitively laid out and thorough.
