Spanish is widely used in the U.S., in homes, schools and in the workplace and is the second most spoken language here. This language is extensively rich, thanks to its vast diversity of terminology. If you want to learn Spanish, the dictionary can be an important resource.

Therefore, users can get English definition for Spanish words or vice versa.
The homescreen features the list of alphabets and by selecting a letter, you can access all the words that start with that particular alphabet.

The top bar offers the option to switch between English-Spanish and Spanish-English dictionaries, while the search box facilitates locating a particular word. Activities section adds an element of fun by letting users play quiz with flashcards and multiple choice questions. The Help area is there to make it easy for the users to explore the features of the app. However, it is available only in English.
When it comes to price, Spanish-English Dictionary 6th Edition is a bit on the higher side – USD 9.99. I think this price might make a few users to look for other options. Having said that, you can buy only a pocket dictionary for $10. It is still better than any comprehensive paper dictionary as it can be referred in no time.
