    Do you have experience with this dictionary? Are you satisfied.

    I am looking for a good stardict compatible dictionary in android. Is the interface comfortable ? I already have a lot of dictionaries for stardict. I suppose I can use them here also.

    Thanks for the information.

    Hi. I am using the app on my Android phone and it is great! Thanks for the effort. I have a question regarding adding resource files to the app dictionary. I have a dictionary that I use with Goldendict on my desktop, and it contains a compresses resource file (audio files). I converted the dictionary and it works in fora. I want to know if there is a way I can add the resource files to the dictionary. I tried to do that but fora tried to extract the compressed resource file and since it contained MANY files, basically it took forever, and I had to use some tricks to be able to delete those files from my phone because of the number. As I said, I am looking for a trick to add the resource file to the dictionary in its compressed form. The dictionary is in dsl format (Lingvo). MAny thanks for your help in advance.
