Android dictionaries done right

Postby Fruchtenstein » 2019-01-09, 12:51

I would appreciate recommendations of dictionaries for Android, especially, but no exclusively, French, German, Latin, etc to English (or monolingual) which:

- allow the user to share words selected in some other program to the dictionary;
- can find words from their inflected forms.

Offline mode is welcome. Freeware is even more so :)
Other useful language learning software for Android would be great, too

So far, my favorite is Reverso Context. You can 'share' selected words to the dictionary. You can find inflected forms. You get a huge number of examples, including synonyms and similar phrases. You can translate whole sentences. It's free (with a premium version). It collects your searches and offers them as flash cards. And it just does feel right :)
Highly recommended.
