Learn Russian


Hi everyone! I'm sure this has been asked before, but what apps do you recommend for a Russian-English dictionary? I love Multitran and how detailed it is, as well as ABBY Lingvo (when it was still alive...) but I can't seem to find an app from them so I can pull this information easily from my phone. Help? Спасибо заранее!

I check stuff on the go by opening Multitran website in my smartphone's browser - it works just fine :)
They don't have app for modern mobile operating systems, sadly. Only for ancient Pocket PC/Symbian...

Lingvo, on other hand, has:

Golden Dictionary as a shell. You can add a lot of dictionaries into it, including those made for Lingvo.
This app has free version, which supports up to 5 dictionaries.

I use an app for my iphone that is called Langbook. It was cheaper than ABBY Lingvo but it takes a lot of memory. Other than that I'm satisfyed with it.

ABBYY Lingvo has an app for all mobile platforms: Android, iOS, and Windows Phone. They also have desktop application for Windows PC and for Mac.
I usually use their online service to translate words. I used to use Lingvo Online but now it redirects to their new service Lingvo Live. You can use it for free but it requires registration. There's also Lingvo Live app.

Glosbe app is pretty nice, although I'm not sure how reliable its maintainers are.

Otherwise, Google Translate is a good and easy option.
