Description

“Dictionaries” is an electronic dictionary viewer app made to allow users to efficiently use various dictionaries. Our popular standalone apps have been integrated into a single app where users can search multiple dictionaries at once. Users can purchase and use a variety of dictionaries, including English, Japanese, French or other language dictionaries, from the “Dictionary Store” which can be accessed from within the app. Searches • Batch Search (Consolidated Search) allows users to search multiple dictionaries at once. • The display order of dictionaries used in the batch search can be customized. • The keyboard language switches automatically depending on dictionary search groups. • Handwriting input is possible for Japanese, Old Japanese, Kanji, Chinese, Korean, and Russian dictionaries. • Using Pattern Search, users can search for words even if a part of the spelling is unknown. Trace and Jump • Users can easily jump to not only other words in the same dictionary but other dictionaries as well simply by tracing words in a definition, allowing users to go on a journey of intellectual curiosity through the dictionary as their hearts desire. Collection • Purchased dictionaries are shown as icons on the Collection screen. • By opening a dictionary from the Collection screen, users can also carefully go through a single dictionary. Even in this case, users can use the “Trace and Jump” function to easily jump to another dictionary. • The display order of dictionary icons on the Collection screen can be changed to the user's preference. Bookmarks • Users can bookmark their favorite words. In addition, users can also efficiently categorize these bookmarks using the Bookmark Folder. • By turning on Quick Bookmark, users can quickly add/remove bookmarks simply by tapping the Bookmark icon. Search History • In History, display frequency is automatically recorded so that users can immediately recognize words they search for repeatedly. iCloud • Users can synchronize Bookmark and History data among all devices by turning on iCloud. Dark Background Colors • In addition to the standard white background color, users can also select from sepia or dark backgrounds. Dark background colors improve concentration abilities. Multitasking • Users can display websites, documents, and more alongside their dictionary by using the Multitasking function on the iPad. By turning on Clipboard Search, users simply have to copy the word they wish to look up in order for the app to find that word in multiple dictionaries. Substantial Lineup • The Dictionary Store carries a large number of full-scale dictionaries, and we plan to further improve this selection in the future as well. • The following English dictionaries are available as of July 2021. Check in the Dictionary Store, which can be accessed from within the app, for more information on each of these items. - Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary 10th edition (OALD) - Oxford Learner’s Dictionary of Academic English - Oxford Learner’s Thesaurus - Oxford Collocations Dictionary - Collins COBUILD Advanced Learner’s Dictionary 9th edition - Collins COBUILD Advanced American English Dictionary 2nd edition - 柯林斯COBUILD高阶英汉双解学习词典第8版 - Collins COBUILD Advanced Dictionary of English, English/Japanese - Collins English Dictionary with Thesaurus Concerning Switching Over From Standalone Apps Users who already own standalone apps from Monokakido will be able to download the corresponding content for free by performing procedures to switch to the new app. All standalone apps can be migrated to the new app, including everything from WISDOM English-Japanese/Japanese-English Dictionary, originally released over 10 years ago, to our most recent releases.

Errors

5
I cannot restore or update dictionaries that I bought. It says there is an unexpected error and I need to force restart iOS. I did force restart many times, but it does not work. I have plenty free storage space left, so that should not be the problem. Also, sync issues: devices do not have the exact same number of bookmarks.

Great English and Japanese Dictionaries on the App Store

4
I love the user interface and the contents of bilingual dictionaries inside this app However updating the dictionaries inside this app is still a problem since it forces me to sign to my iCloud account as my iTunes account is not the associated Apple ID (updating the app from the App Store is ok though) I do hope that there would be any solution for this any time soon Thanks for listening to my feedback anyway

Best Dict App in the app store

5
There are many dictionaries apps in the store. this is definitely the best one based on my experience ( I tried almost every one). 1. Appearance The app looks polished and the dictionaries is beautifull(no matter the font and the interface) 2. diversity there are some other apps that looks good but there are limited dictionaries that you can select from the app. 3. Search function It has a cross-app search function which is fantastically good for ESL users.

Great for Japanese, but Missing a Crucial Feature

4
First off, I love that this app combines multiple dictionaries in one. For me this is useful because I first look in the 三省堂 dictionary since it is a bit easier to understand and has shorter definitions. However I often have to look in a more complete dictionary like 大辞林 for more complicated things. This app lets me do that with a single search! One feature that I feel is crucial, but this app is lacking, is the option to export your bookmarks. This could help users e.g. to make digital flash cards from bookmarked entries.

例解学習辞典欲しい!!後定義内活用語検索も

2
現時点では、定義からは、ある気になった活用形を選択しても、その活用語を引けません。せめて見出しの中で前方一致検索を有効にしてください!!! 後、小学館の例解学習国語辞典は、クソiPadでは使えるけどなぜiPhoneで使えないでしょうか。それが一番欲しい辞書なのに。図がなくても、表示が変でも、お願いします!!なるべく早く…

Can’t download any content !

1
Hi, I am a guy who’s currently working in mainland China. I love this app a lot and have purchased 37 dictionaries already, recently I reset my iPad and started to download the content again but I just can’t ! Each time I try to download, it says an unknown error occurred. (Btw there is a lot of storage left so I am sure it’s the app’s problem) Downloading has always worked badly .. but now it stopped working completely
