    Content is pretty good, but it’s very frustrating to use. Every time you open the application it defaults to English-French. I don’t see a way to set the default to French-English which I mostly use. Also, after looking up a word you have to delete the previous word to enter a new search term.

    I've been learning French for about a year now, and recently decided I needed to start practicing the four main abilities (e.g., writing, speaking, etc) more systematically in order to approve. Because I have and absolutely love the Italian version (Paravia) of this dictionary, I specifically looked to see if Oxford had a French version, and then immediately bought it. There are several reasons why I love this dictionary. Specifically, it has a large database of words, provides accurate and detailed translations, includes related french words in the definitions, and provides context words to help you distinguish the situations to use the words. The paid version also can be used online, which I appreciate. In addition, and particularly useful, a large portion of words also include idioms/sayings, which I've found are particularly difficult to understand when learning a new language. The Oxford dictionaries are helping me learn and refine two languages, and are one of my most used and go-to resources. Therefore, I highly recommend this app!

  • Best French English dictionary I have found

    The examples given are so delightful and plenteous I amuse myself just reading, and trying to remember them. My favorite translation dictionary. When I reported a problem, I got instant, courteous and knowledgeable responses from support staff. BTW: it does show you all verb conjugations: when you look up a French verb you will see the phonetic spelling, then an "icon" such as [verb list 99] and you press that to see the conjugation. You have to know basic conjugation to understand the verb lists, however, but you can look that up too in the dictionary. BBTW: I use this dictionary a lot. I like it. However, the mild but too-constant sexual stereotypes in the examples are beginning to wear on my nerves just a tad. I wish the he’s and she’s would be more equal regarding gender stereotypes and perceptions. When I copy examples onto flash cards for memorization, I find myself changing he’s to she’s or vice versa.
  • Great dictionary !

  • They cheat

    Don’t buy it. They are cheating. Other dictionaries are not like this. I purchased this app. When I tried to install it on another iPhone (pronunciation), it asked me to pay again.

    I had the old 32-bit version of this app so when I upgraded to iOS 11 it was gone and so I was forced to pay again. This was not the case with other dictionaries I have. No reply from customer service on this issue.
