  • What’s with your logos? This isn’t Android!

    Been using your suite of dictionaries since they first came out on the App Store close to 10 years ago, and I have to say it is disappointing to see more change in the app icon than in the app itself. While I’m not going to tell you what I think should be improved about the app because I don’t see you ever implanting it, i will say that your new logo is infuriating. For one, I own a few of your apps and when you changed the ‘Collins-Robert’ to the current logo I thought it didn’t look right next to your other dictionaries and so I justified buying the exact same app that is ‘Collins French’. Just so the dictionaries would bear the flag of their language; making it easy to differentiate all of them. But now that you’ve replaced the flags by an ‘A’ that means nothing to me, I have to wonder what the deal is?! Bottom line is, if you’re not bringing the flags back and you f-up ‘Collins EN’ too I will delete them all and move somewhere else! Now that the rant is over, I still love your products and learned many languages thanks to your easy-to-use dictionaries, so thank you for that.

    Perhaps it is simply user error/lack of technological know-how, but honestly I liked the version of this dictionary on the Internet rather than the app itself, because I have not been able to determine how to find examples of a given word used in different sentences, which was available on the free Internet version.
  • So useful, so good

    Really, *the* best French-English dictionaries that there are, both for your iPad/iPhone and in hardcover book form. Definitions, examples, pronunciation using audio, easy look up verb conjugation tables. Buy this for convenience and portability when traveling and as a companion to the hardcover book version. You should not be dissapointed!
  • The BEST!

    I’ve been struggling for weeks with those other French dictionary apps. Yes, they’re free or far less expensive, but they also don’t have as many words, nor do they have the feature most needed by beginner students - the feature that allows you to look up a verb in its conjugated form and find the root word! Yay Collins! Then I thought the text to speech feature was going to be robotic and terrible like the others, but it’s not! It’s fantastic. Now, I’m a beginner and can’t really say how accurate the pronunciation is, but it sounds French to me! Such a relief after nothing but frustration with the other 3 apps I had before. They are all deleted now, as this one has it all!
