Last time I used dictionary.com,it was useless in offline mode. I'll try again and see what has changed. Meanwhile I'm using WordWeb Audio and it deserves a mention here being a good performer.

The Farlex dictionary is great (though the app has the worst design)

I would like to introduce another type of dictionary, Floating Dictionary. Instead of switching between a dictionary and a pdf reader, this application is a pop-up window. Therefore, you don’t have to leave the pdf reader to find the meaning of the word you're looking for.
