QuickDic can still be installed via F-Droid but it is not possible to download dictionaries. Error “Download failed: null”
The app also vanished from Google PlayStore:
and it seems as if it was removed intentionally:
Will there be a replacement?September 19, 2015 at 10:18 pm #17393
I don’t know what happened to it, but I rescued/restored it as far as possible: https://github.com/rdoeffinger/Dictionary
Someone would need to update the fdroid configuration to build that version though (e.g. the 5.0.7 version), I’m afraid I don’t have time to learn how to do this.
The build system is replaced and uses gradle now.
As a stop-gap measure it is also possible to just manually download the dictionaries from here: https://github.com/rdoeffinger/Dictionary/releases/tag/v0.2-dictionariesOctober 19, 2015 at 8:09 am #17778
Thanks for this work, Reimar!
It would be great to have the resurrected project be included in F-Droid.November 13, 2015 at 7:40 pm #17990

Could someone put this in the description or the link-section of the app?
So normal use could easily find where to download the dictionariesNovember 17, 2015 at 2:54 pm #18042
I got some help on creating a F-droid build file: https://github.com/rdoeffinger/Dictionary/issues/5
Combined lack of experience with gradle, git and F-droid from my side makes it a bit messier than it should be I guess.May 30, 2016 at 8:42 am #19961
What is the difference between EN-DE and DE-EN? Shoudn’t that be the same (in size and content)?
Both contains translations in both directions, but sizes are so different …
A wish for the future would be, that the folder for the dics can be selected by browsing, not just by typing. Thanks for this great tool!

I’ve got a problem with my INKBOOK ebook reader, which has dictionaries based on QuickDic. I need an English to English dictionary, as the one I’ve found among the links above isn’t working. What I mean is that all those bilingual dictionaries are based on two columns layout, whereas in EN dictionary you need to press on a given word. It seems that my INKBOOK simply copies the content from the second column and that’s why with EN-EN dictionary it only shows the word I’m trying to explain, not the full definition.
Any fixes for that?January 1, 2017 at 11:21 am #23182
DE-EN is just the old dictionary, EN-DE is the newer one (order changed from alphabetical to primary-wikitionary-source first).
There is a issue open on github on making storage directory selection more user-friendly.
Generally, please consider putting issues/feature requests and possibly even questions about the project itself on github, this forum doesn’t work very well for that and I think it’s also kind of off-topic here.
@macu88: sounds like the problem is that there is only a “EN” dictionary, not “EN-EN” so to say.
I don’t think there’s an easy way to get what you want currently.
Does that ebook reader even support the v7 dictionaries at all? Because – at least for now – I completely dropped support for generating v6 dictionaries, and the ebook reader I have for example doesn’t support the new ones (the joy of companies forking projects without actually having the manpower to do even basic maintenance or communicating with upstream at all, I wonder how many of these might be exploitable via the Java deserialization issues the old version had…).
