REVIEWS: (5 stars) "Best French dictionary ever - In the 30 years that I have been studying and using French I have yet to find a better French-English dictionary, whether in-print, online or an app. This app is totally worth the price." -User review (5 stars) "Wonderful for an high intermediate reader like me who often needs a clarification but doesn't want to haul around a heavy dictionary. The interface is great because it anticipates the word as you type and if your French spelling is weak - like mine is - it saves a lot of time." -User review Follow us on Twitter and become a fan on Facebook for app news, language learning tips, and more: http://www.twitter.com/ultralingua http://on.fb.me/ifI8Hy

  • Worth it

    By chanimal27
    It’s worth it to spend a little money and get this high quality product over the free French to English translators. They have an extensive list of example sentences which is very helpful.
  • The Best

  • Beau

    Ça marche très magnifique pour moi qui étudie le français en debout.
  • Not 5 stars

    4
    By Joe the part time observer
    This is a very good French dictionary. I took away one star because you cannot just touch a word to hear it. You have to copy it first, and then, if you want to hear it again, you have to copy it (or the phrase) all over again.
  • Cumbersome but detailed

    By Jrdptts
    This is a little cumbersome and difficult to navigate and use, but it makes up for that with in depth definitions and example sentences. Great app.
  • C'est Parfait!

    I'm going to France tomorrow for the 5th time in a year. I love this app. Translations are detailed, often with example phrases. I like looking at words I already know just to pick up a new French phrase or two. Tap on a word in an example phrase and that word is opened. Don't worry, the back arrow takes you back to the original word you were studying. Verb conjugations are complete. This is the only French/English dictionary I need.
  • Inadequate!

    By mgramunt
    I just spent $17 for this dictionary, and within 10 minutes I've already been unable to find definitions of several words that I found with ease on the Collins dictionary site. And these weren't arcane words, but ones I had stumbled across, as an intermediate French student, in Courrier International: "mise en garde" (warning) and "bourbier" (quagmire). Until you can offer a complete dictionary similar to the one you have online, don't advertise it as such!!
  • Collins has been the gold standard

    For over fifty years. If you need a dictionary of real quality this is it.
  • Initial Confusion was Unfounded

    5
    By SomeoneLearningFrenchNow
    I was a bit confused when I first used this application. However after reading the introduction and the tips and tricks, I have found that this is an absolutely fantastic dictionary. It provides quite a few examples for each entry and is easy to use after just a minute or two.
  • Change of heart

    By Blue Pine
    I've gone from disliking this app to using it every day. I was wrong before. I should have taken time to get to know it and understand it, and now I have. I value it not only for helping me with my French pronunciation, but for providing a seemingly endless number of relevant examples for almost every word I look up. This app has become indispensable to me, and I'm grateful for everything it provides! Keep those examples coming!
