“WORDS, WORDS, WORDS — I’M SO SICK OF WORDS!” Free | www.u-dictionary.com/home U-Dictionary is one of those apps that is as useful as you make it. Dictionary, translator or language learning. It’s primarily an app for English-as-a-second-language users, but that’s not to say you can’t use it if you’re a boring native English speaker, like your humble reviewer. If you need it to be a simple translation device, it can do that easily for 38 languages, providing you with contextual sentences including the word you’re looking up or a translation of a whole sentence. But as far as helping English-speakers goes, that’s pretty much it, unless you want to sink some serious hours into the Synonym Game. If you want it to help you speak English, it has planned tests and conversations you can practise. If you want to brush up on your vocab, it has a variety of ways to help you do that, too. There are groups to discuss certain topics or words. And lots of videos. Does it suffer from trying to do too much? That’s hard to say, but the interface could probably use some work. In order to find out what the app can do, you have to scroll through all the different activity types, rather than see them all in a dropdown menu or hideable sidebar. It’s all potentially very useful, if you can find what you’re looking for.
