A super fast offline English dictionary
This extensive offline English dictionary app features 169,000 words and 114,000 inflected forms, with definitions sourced from English Wiktionary. It's a super quick and easy way of looking up words when you're without internet.
The features are basic but function well. You can look up words from the search bar or leaf through pages alphabetically by swiping left. Each definition has an audio for pronunciation, as well as translations into various languages. You can bookmark your favorite words and back them up for safe keeping.
If you're a crossword fan, you can search for words replacing the letters you don't know with ? and English Dictionary will provide possible answers. There's also a random word shuffler for you to learn new words and their meanings, and the app is compatible with both Moon Reader and FBReader.
The UI is sleek, smooth and user-friendly, and there are various options for customizing the screen (font size, colors etc). Being an offline dictionary, it is indeed super fast to do searches, but you do still need internet connection to search for words not featured offline.
