4.0 out of 5 stars It's a dictionary - what more is there to say?
I bought this because I was fed up with the American spellings in the dictionary that was built in when I bought the Kindle. So far there have not been any words I have looked up that I have not been able to find. It's a dictionary - does what it says 'on the tin'.
Would have liked to be able to get an instant definition from it though, simply by bringing the...

2.0 out of 5 stars Electronic Dictionary
The dictionary itself is adequate, it is simply the links that do not work. It can take ages to look up a word and find the correct page.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hard to use, 24 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: An Electronic English Dictionary (Kindle Edition)
I have this installed on my Kindle Fire. It has no inbuilt search facility so, if you want to find a word in the Dictionary the Kindle search system searches all documents on the system in addition to the Dictionary. The only way to find a word is to guess how far into the pages it is and move the slider to that area. After that you have to flick through page after page to find the page with the required word on it.

I no longer use it and am looking for ways to get it off my Kindle.

This is not an english dictionary. Quite frankly, I don't know what it is. Thankfully, I only wasted £1.96 but if you want a proficient english dictionary by the oxford.

first few words I looked up in the default dictionary were not there so tried this one. However, even worse, and no pronounciation guide. also took a little while to find and install, but that may just have been me.
Avoid

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value especially considering it's low price., 25 Sept. 2014

This review is from: An Electronic English Dictionary (Kindle Edition)
I have edited my original entry and upped the star rating to ensure the publisher receives a fair review.

The first word I looked up wasn't listed (mouseion from Dan Brown's 'Inferno'). It also took about ten times longer to not find it than it would have done by flicking real pages in a conventional dictionary. A real disappointment until I found where to enter the required word (see below)!

Publisher might also note that the word 'below' on the inside front page is spelled incorrectly as 'bellow'! Not a good start for a dictionary I would suggest. Finally discovered where to enter the search word. It was not as described. I hope the publishers and/or Kindle (whoever is to blame), can rectify this as the devil is in the detail with this type of thing.
