rso544's Review of Collins German English

Reviewed on 12/23/18 1:15 PM

Pretty pricey but great on the go dictionary. Far more functional than paper copy. The only better feature might be pronunciation, but not critical for intermediate (and beyond) speakers.

Ok but Not worth the cash

This program is only OK. I find I Need to restart it several time durring my German classes because it no Longer Open the keyboard. Will not speak the word for you though, which for 25 bucks one would think it should.

Terrible Terrie's Review of Collins German English

Reviewed on 12/23/18 1:15 PM

It is a great dictionary, with many usage examples. It has many words in it that my previous paid dicionary did not. So glad I found it.

Great app, with one little issue

YesNoCancel's Review of Collins German English

Reviewed on 12/23/18 1:15 PM

This is easily the best German dictionary app. A lot of care was put into making the interface clean and intuitive. The only issue is that it's clumsy to close definitions. You open a definition by tapping on the word, but to close you have to click on a little "arrows" button on the other side of the screen. The definitions also stay open forever, so after awhile a bunch of definitions are open. I'd expect them to be closed automatically at some point, like when you open the app.

AustinWW's Review of Collins German English

Reviewed on 12/23/18 1:15 PM

I love this app, it is very useful. Anyone out there looking for a dict, get this one. It works well with tons of translations. It has many common phrases and idiomatic ones under each entry. Being able to clicl on any word listed in the definition is real handy too, especially when clicking on a verb and then hitting conjugate.

atinin's Review of Collins German English

Reviewed on 12/23/18 1:15 PM

I cannot use this app by itself, needs more colloquial expressions. A suggestion: please add the option to write a word instead of just typing. Nevertheless, it still my first go to for translation, especially for verbs and conjugation.

Extremely disappointing!

Snags40's Review of Collins German English

Reviewed on 12/23/18 1:15 PM

The first word I looked up wasn't there - besudeln - nor were several others. Their French/English dictionary is wonderful but this one, German/English, is NOT worth a small fraction of the price.

Awesome

TheDruidCM's Review of Collins German English

Reviewed on 12/23/18 1:15 PM

I have the French and German dictionary apps from Collins, and both are grear because they will parse words for you, and you can put an inflected word into the search bar, and it will give you the meaning of that form and the dictionary definition of the base form. Very, very helpful for learning a language. I used the French one to read a book; I didn't know French when I started, but can read it fine now,clargely thanks to the Collins dictionary. Highly recommended.

Update 1.2.4 made things worse

pritish18's Review of Collins German English

Reviewed on 12/23/18 1:15 PM

In general it is a very useful tool for students learning German. Definitely one of the better dictionaries out there. However, there are some issues have yet to be fixed: when clicking on a German word found within the definition of another German word, it attempts to look for the word in English. A recently introduced bug with v1.2.4 is that when switching among verb conjugations, the tense default to präsens each time. This is very annoying when you are working with a different tense as for each verb you have to re-select the tense. Please fix these little bugs.
