    MUST BE ON WIRELESS--write up should make this clear

    While I realize this supplied by a company called MobiSystems, it was not clear that you had to have an internet connection for this to work. My other aps do not require this interface (well the Lonely Planet tour book needs the internet--another disappointment) This is only a dictionary not a news service or something that needs a constant feed. I am extremely disappointed because if I have internet access I like the website WordReference--I bought this for when I am on the go and have no wireless. I live in Mexico and thought this could be my mobile reference because I often carry my Nook and not my paper dictionary. An item should stand on its own unless it clearly cannot ue to content.

    it works well but you have to play with it...once you get the drift it works beautifully in both directions

    It took me a little time to figure out...but it works in both directions very well..it is quick and I love it...but at first I was stumped...the person who gave the bad review should have tried a little harder to get the drift...maybe it could use some directions..it goes 50 times faster than a book (spanish to english or the other way)

    Does Not Work

    Since B&N changed the format for accessing files, the Spanish/English switch does not appear. The default setting is English to Spanish. Good if you're a native Spanish speaker, but bad if you're trying to learn Spanish. I have talked with the service department twice and achieved nothing! They have been "working" on this problem for 5 months during which time I haven't been able to use this expensive dictionary.

    Great!

    I really like this dictionary - once I figured out how to "change directions" it was all I had hoped for.
