• Import/Export from File Sharing (shared folder), internet URL, or peer app running on another device/computer
• Diacritics-free, punctuation-free, and in-headword matching
• Phonetic, wildcard, fuzzy, full-text search

Additional Features:

Combines dictionary lookups with a basic text viewing application. It can be used to read eBooks in plain-text/UTF-8 format or to read/translate text such as news.

• Text Indexer
“Import Text” option creates dictionaries from arbitrary text that could be extracted from any document, including office documents.

• Vocabulary Exerciser
Picks random words from dictionaries or history and asks you guess it.

• Desktop Companion
The app also works on desktop computers. The desktop version can be used to set up dictionaries on a computer and then synchronise with the mobile version using a common wi-fi connection. It’s completely optional and distributed as freeware.

A few English dictionaries (WordNet, Moby, FOLDOC, etc.) and several bilingual dictionaries are available as downloads within the app. You can find many useful dictionaries on the internet free of charge.

Not just a simple dictionary Very useful dictionary. I use only it and it performs all the necessary functions. Profiles are really convenient to use. I have one question to the developers: why does pressing the back program key on my device reset the active profile to another one which I haven't chosen? Now I have to long-press a button and choose Fora dictionary from the list of recently opened programs in order not to let it reset the active profile. I use Galaxy Tab 3.

Poor application Does not integrate well with my Moon+ Reader Pro AND downloading databases is a hassle. Better off with ColorDict.
