This is an English to French dictionary
By Blair Anna
I am surprised everyone is getting so confused. This dictionary is for French definitions of English words, not the other way around. So obviously it's going to seem basic, and obviously, 99% of words won't be in it if you're looking for definitions of French words. This is NOT for English speakers trying to improve their understanding of French texts, but for English speakers wanting to know the equivalent of an English expression in French, or for French speakers wanting to better understand and translate texts in English!
It is actually a very good dictionary, not basic at all, as it focuses on translation issues, by giving you English words in different contexts, and their equivalent in French.
And it did say in the product description: "Access French definitions and explanations for English words"...

No alphabet links - poor navigation for an ebook
By Lindley L. Karstens
While this may be a perfectly fine English-French dictionary in hard copy, asking a user to "page" through the entire alphabet worth of content to get to the 'T' section is just plain stupid. I was planning to use this on the fly. I need a Table of Contents that allows me to jump to the section I need in a couple of touches.
Downloaded it and tried to get to the TOC, but got the A section. Returned it. Enough said.

A good english-french dictionary (and no it isn't an english-french/french-english one)
I am french and I read mostly in english. When I read in french I don't need to translate words to english, but when I read in english I do need sometimes to translate a word to french. That's why I looked for an english-french dictionary and not an english-french/french-english dictionary. This one does the job, when I don't understand a word in english it gives me the meaning in french.
I completely agree with M.A. BLAIR and I really don't understand how people don't know a one way dictionary from a two way one.
So if your first language is french and you like reading in english but sometimes need to look up a word in a dictionary, this one is for you !
