This is what you would expect from a trusted name like Collins.
It is rammed full of definitions and flips both ways i.e. French/English or English/French, the trouble is that like many apps out there it is quite complex to find your way around and there doesn't appear to be a user guide included.
In short lots of information but could do with an easier user interface.
I expect that given time I will find my way around and this will be a really useful tool.

HASH(0x9b35e39c) out of 5 stars Not remotely near the quality that the name Collins implies 4 Feb. 2013
By Myrna Minkoff - Published on Amazon.com

I really do not know how a dictionary could offer any less and still call itself "a dictionary." This is nothing but a list of words, phonetic spelling, and very, very thin definitions. There are no conjugations or other inflected forms. I kept looking for the interface to turn on more verbose treatments or provide other features. Like "dictionary," the word "interface" hardly seems appropriate...there are just no features to be accessed.

This looks like a direct port of an inexpensive calculator-style device. Those devices were okay, I guess, in their day when you could not hold real computing power in your hand. But this thing is ridiculously primitive on a capable device like the Kindle Fire.
