This could have been a great product but it falls short by being a "compact" rather than a concise dictionary and so I have graded it as OK.
Oh, and this dictionary can translate words begining with l' all' etc (eg dall'accaduto). Unfortunately it cannot cope with infinitives with pronouns attached (eg parlarne).
To do this you need to replace the default dictionary (which just gives an explanation in Italian).
I spent much of a day trying to do this replacement first on the "Kindle app" then using the old "Kindle for PC". I don't believe that either Windows Kindle version supports the use of an alternative dictionary.
Therefore while this dictionary seems good, I'm giving it 2 stars because it needs to be made clear that Kindle on Windows doesn't support the lookup option.
I'd like to give zero stars to Kindle for Windows for not having this feature when it is available on Kindle proprietary platforms and on Android.
It has transformed my foreign language reading experience. Now I just move the cursor to the start of any word and a dictionary entry in a small panel appears at top or bottom of the screen and if I don't understand it immediately I can press the more key to see the full dictionary page and scroll up or down to see related words - just like an ordinary dictionary. Then press back to go back to the book.
Pros - instantaneous and integrated. Has lots of verb conjugations within the dictionary (unlike my paper dictionary).
Cons - doesn't have colloquialisms, only literal translations so doesn't completely replace a fuller dictionary. Can't remove the L' from nouns beginning with a vowel so you can't always look these up (you could type them in and look them up that way).
It's not perfect, but it's perfectly usable for the majority of words.
