User reviews of Fora Dictionary
Best offline dictionary on the market, and the only ad-free and low resource option on the market. Colorization configuration is a touch non-intuitive.

This would be even better if there was an option to import all dictionaries within a certain folder recursively. I had to manually add 25 dictionaries one by one!

Remember, this is just a shell. You still need to download or import the actual dictionaries. But if you do, you'll be blessed by a very functional dictionary app, that can be customized as you wish. Now I have several groups of dictionaries on it, and it's made very simple to alter between them. Highly recommended!

text-to-speech just disappear after the last update. thats so aweful.

the best dictionary shell i've tried so far — and i have tried most free ones in the android market. probably not so polished interface-wise as some of the others, but versatile, without ads or stupid limitations. very useful. give it a try if you really do need a dictionary.

Very good App, Very old design! This dictionary App is absolutely Great! But the design is quite old styled and needs to be renewed by following the new Android directives.
