  1. guest-avatar

    Can't look up a single word without having to buy premium because "my trial is over" right after i installed the app and did nothing with it yet.

  2. guest-avatar

    Easy to understand definitions Excellent pronunciation

  3. guest-avatar

    A complete dictionary useful for English language students and all those who want to improve their English language skill👍

  4. guest-avatar

    Slow: word search fails: visually unappealing. Do not buy. Stick with the online dictionary, because it looks better, works faster and succeeds at word searches.

  5. guest-avatar

    Paper dictionary is excellent. Hope this is as good, but why the daft naming of the app - 'English' instead of 'Collins' puts it in the wrong place in the app tray - and lousy icon, should be full size!

  6. guest-avatar

    PROS: Excellent Collins content. CONS: No “share” feature to select and look up words from other apps. Search functionality is very limited; there’s no full text, example or idiom search. The “smart" search that seems to be happening only slows down the app and never comes up with anything relevant. Favorites don't sync across devices. The interface has an adware-like appearance. In a paid app, I don't want to see "Invite Friends" and "Rate App" on the home screen as if these were features for my benefit. The nagging "rate 5 stars" popup is especially annoying. The front matter or “special topics” of the printed dictionary are not included as they are with some other titles. I much prefer the WordWeb dictionary interface for which currently only the Chambers dictionaries appear to be available.

    I expected to use the app for translating words, sadly I found it as an advertising tool. Sure it is ok to make ads, but this system is very distracting to use, I hope you would improve it.

  8. guest-avatar

    Excellent dictionary. Would have given it five stars if the app hadn't kept asking me to provide my feedback.

    I think it should be very useful if it could work offline. Beside the is okay

  10. guest-avatar

    Nirmal Bhattacharya


    Without the inclusion of a thesaurus the dictionary is ineffective. Besides many words are without examples. A hopeless app.

  11. guest-avatar

    It's very good, certainly helps while reading H.P. Lovecraft's works

  12. guest-avatar

    I have paid 575 earlier but now I have changed my mobile but it is not giving me free of cost dictionary and full of ads

    Robert Shiplett


    better than the Merr Webstr to my surprise; many words here that M-W is missing, both new and those now seldom used. A bit of a shock, after decades relying on new editions of MW

    It's nice to have Collins's IPA transcription for words rather than the accented Latin characters common in dictionaries from the States. Definitions in the CED tend toward concision over detail, which I find helpful in many cases. The interface—while cluttered and bright (I'd love a night mode)—is quite useable once you're past the welcome screen. The interface in this dictionary is identical to that of the American Heritage Dictionary. The same developer makes both, and they simply load a different database into the same skin for these two dictionaries' separate apps. A nice feature of both the CED and AHD is the ability to export the definition to Anki flashcards, including the IPA transcription, a big help to EFL learners.

  31. guest-avatar

    I've always had a copy of Collins Dictionary since I was in Primary school and my mother bought me a Collins Gem version, now having the full library on my phone and tablet is just perfect for me.

  32. guest-avatar

    Very disappointing. It always asks for download offline content even if i downloaded multiple times. Tell me solution if any.

  33. guest-avatar

    Jago Philippens


    Rated 1 star. Always used this on my previous phones. New version seems to require me to pay again? Surely I am not the only person to switch phones every so often...

  34. guest-avatar

    The app is so far ok, but that you are pushed to rate them with five stars is annoying.

  35. guest-avatar

    Matthias Beboux


    Guter umfassendes Nachschlagewerk für Englische Wörter, auch für seltene Ausdrücke in Literatur und Romanen. Benötigt gute Englischkenntnisse für's Verständnis der Bergiffserklärungen. Very complete dictionnary. I love it.

    I've been using this App since the time I had a S2! I need a dictionary on my phone and it has to be a Collins.

    In my quest to dominate scrabble this book is essential to me. :-)

  38. guest-avatar

    Not a bad little application, very helpful.

  40. guest-avatar

    Excellent tool for a tournament Scrabble player like me or for anyone who just loves words.

  41. guest-avatar

    Good for me when I see a word that I do not know the exact meaning of. Quick answers are essential to me.

    I paid the subscription but every time I try to download the offline file it never works as it keeps asking to download it again. Very poor. Will need a refund unless there is a fix.

  57. guest-avatar

    Not as good as WordWeb dictionaries. Does the job though as a backup.

    You need more definitions for words used as nouns,adjectives, verbs, etc. I am disappointed in the cost. I expected more.

  60. guest-avatar

    Too many annoying suggestions, f.e. rate app, invite friends, etc.

  61. guest-avatar

    Sébastien Le Batteux


    Very poor quality of the recorded pronunciation. Please make it like the web site.

  62. guest-avatar

    Great addition to UB Reader. Now I can read all books in original language and don't waste my time searching for words in other program.

  63. guest-avatar

    I bought this for the database as I have several other dictionary apps including the Oxford Dictionary Of English, also by Mobisystems. My issues are that the interface is identical in both apps, it really is like I'm using the same app when for £40+ outlay I should be able to have a different feel to each app. Quite why the Oxford dark blue was changed to the same light blue as the Collins app as well, just to ram the identical themes home... That's the aesthetics talked about but there is also a problem with the word search in both apps. If I type a word and spell it correctly then I should be taken straight to the definition of that word, and not to a list of words with my chosen one at the top which I then have to select. That's one too many screen presses for me. My main gripe though is regular screen freezing within the search box. If I go elsewhere on my phone to another dictionary or internet search and then return to any of the recently updated Mobisystems dictionary apps, I type on the keyboard to input a word and no letters appear in the search box. I have to us my 'go back' button and then click in the search box to try again. This happens far too often and it is a symptom of the new interface. I much preferred the look of the old UI and what's more it performed better too. I'm sure that Mobisystems will fix this word inputting bug as they're fairly on the ball but they really do need to address this lazy 'all our apps look the same' user interface issue. At least give each app a different colour scheme!

    1 star it is - for forcing people to do so

  69. guest-avatar

    It is very Good.

  70. guest-avatar



    Hope there are usages of words. Overally satisfying.

  71. guest-avatar

    It is very useful and convenient, especially because it offers you all the information about every word and not just the general definition as other dictionaries do,in addition,it opens pretty quickly

  72. guest-avatar

    App is useful. Thank mobisystems a lot when let me exchange for this app with the refund.

  73. guest-avatar

    I need some for learner,and I can't copy the words in the app

    I have the older MSDict Viewer of the same Collins dictionary and now if I wanted the updated MSDict viewer for this same dictionary I have to paid full price again. Why wasn't this a free update to the original app like on iOS?
