Translate words and phrases in Spanish on your Android gadget with SpanishDict

Interpret Spanish words and phrases and test your knowledge using SpanishDict.

A good Spanish dictionary readily available on a smartphone can be useful to many people, ranging from language students to travelers. SpanishDict app offers a fully functional Spanish dictionary for your Android device. It has many features that are not available on other similar apps, and it works well. Even though it is a good application, there are some inconvenient drawbacks as well.

The download of the main application goes pretty quickly and easily, but it's also followed by a pretty large download from an outside source. This external download is for the content of the dictionary, and comes in both text and audio files. While testing SpanishDict we noticed that it takes up quite a bit of memory, too. The application layout is clean, easy to read, and easy to use. It features a simple translation window that helps you interpret words or phrases. There is also a game mode that will allow you to challenge your knowledge. You are also able to listen to your translations to make sure your pronunciation is correct. We realized the main drawback of this program when we went to listen to our music collection on another application. Because the audio files are in a simple MP3 format, the music player recognizes them, and your music collection will be riddled with thousands of Spanish words. This is very inconvenient and should be improved. Furthermore, when the user uninstalls the software, the MP3 files remain. They must be deleted manually.

While SpanishDict could be a very useful tool for many people, ranging from students to travelers, developers still have some work to do to make this app completely user-friendly. If the audio file problem is solved, this would be a great application.
