pretty useless on KIndle.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Collins French to English (One Way) Dictionary & Grammar (Collins Dictionary and Grammar) (French Edition) (Kindle Edition)
Not bad in its content but it's just too slow finding a word. Swiping through to the right page takes ages. This is made worse by the spread-out layout, which looks nice on each page but as there are so few entries on each page it multiples the number of pages you have to swipe through to find your word. Using the Kindle search facility is too slow and gives lots of irrelevant results. The KIndle scroll bar is too blunt a tool to help much. Disappointing. I had hoped to avoid carrying around a dictionary as well as a French-language book. Silly me to expect user-friendly technology. Maybe eventually they will produce something. You can't put a foreign language dictionary on Kindle Fire HD to click straight through from the source text (though Kindle support told me you could to start with). I gather you could on one of the earlier versions. Ho hum.
