    Most people just go to dictionary.com on their iphone. and we touch users don't really need it. and without cut and paste, a lot of functionality is lost.

    NOOOOO!!!!!

    I have the Polish SlovoEd dictionary and it's definitely the worst app I've paid for so far.

    No definitions are given, no guide to usage. For example Type in the word 'train' and it returns over 20 Polish words, and you're left to guess which one is one you're looking for.

    Not sure which dictionary you're looking at, but look at the screenshots and see if it actually gives definitions, not just word pairs. If you can't see any, don't buy.

    If you're looking for a Spanish dictionary try the Collins/Ultralingua one, it's excellent and I would recommend it.

    Why don't we touch users need dictionaries? Not sure if I understand you.

    Thank you, I'll pass. I was thinking about buying the either the French or Spanish packs. I'll take a look at Ultralingua, then.
     
  8. Well I want to get the SlovoEd Japanese one which is $10 but there is also an Oxford one $15 which has same amount of definitions and pronunciations. I've tried contacting the company but haven't heard anything back as to what the difference is.
