    That’s a very nice tool for an Arabic translator like me. Hope it will be available for Android as well!

    It amazes me that they could want to charge for using a dictionary. Some old-money picking habits die hard. Oh well, Google will do it better, quicker and for free, soon.

    $15 for a dictionary, even a well known one, is an astronomical price as far as iPhone apps go.
