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

great dictonary. compare to golden dictonary or aard I use fora dictionary daily in Moon+ reader. I ended up choosing it over color dict (ads!) and Golden dict (Better font size control in Fora). Fora's font size is easy to control and this is a big win for me but it's control menu is a tad fussy and over crowded. Fora's only flaw is that it does not include pre packaged online access to Wikipedia or wiki dictionary like color dict or downloadable offline versions like aard does (albeit with some level of pain in the download). Its interface is tad less helpful then either Color dictionary or aard but its default dictionary is good enough. I had a problem with the licensed version and the developer was responsive and helpful.

that's a wow, This dictionary runner is really a fantastic application, this is what i was looking for since long.. this should be called a combination of great dictionaries like oxford longman collins, i wondered if i could ever get those highly recommended popular dictionaries like oxford lngman,and this fora met me as a dream coming true, the only problam is I'm not able to download dictionaries from the source of repository option, please fix it and five star will be given,
