recommend this program - this app already contains many dictionaries, but it has a more exciting function of adding stardict format dictionaries. oxford, collins, webster, etc.. many famous dictionaries can be installed into this app.

Review by Colonel Bat Guano

Complete garbage - I am a foreign language teacher, and thus quite familiar with different dictionaries. UsualDict is very problematic and not even worth .99. Before buying click on the support page. There is no information there, nor is there any included with the application. The Chinese-English and English-Chinese are very weak. Good luck adding Stardict dictionaries too. They are no longer available due to copyright infringement. Save your money and stick with Apple's Dictionary app, adding what dictionaries you need there. Far better than this app, which is nowhere near "awesome." Someone is just hoping to make a quick buck. It's really too bad that no trial for apps exists on the App Store.

Review by —yay—

Want to waste $5? Look no further. - It just uses Apple’s standard dictionaries and comes with one of its own (WordNet 3.0). But it doesn’t let me install StarDict dictionaries like it says it does. Each StarDict dictionary consists of the following files: *.ifo, *.idx, *.dict (and optional *.syn). This app won’t recognize or install any of those. Nor there is any documentation on what file format/extension this dictionary expects. The website is not helpful either.
