When it first came out as a booklet, the 'travellers picture dictionary' Point it was lovely to work with.

It had pictures of common household items, foods, medicines, transportation, tools, sights, professions, anything you might be searching for/wanting in a foreign country that you don't speak the language of, together with some geographical maps. IIRC some 20-30 pages full of stuff.

They also made an app, but it gets bad reviews (I e.g. agree with the complaint of the pictures having watermarks).

Does anyone know of an alternative?

  • It does not have to be free (let's say up to US$10).
  • I don't need texts or pronunciations.
  • It has to work offline (no Internet connection)
  • Lookup speed is essential, you don't want to have to fumble with your app for a minute to point out something. Their current app does that with an index like this, so that you are two clicks away from the photo:

  • While I usually recommend taking a look into the corresponding app listing of mine: I'd done that for vocabulary, but I don't have a list for this kind of app. Though some of the Language Guides might have that (includes "travel helpers"), like Travel Interpreter. – Izzy Aug 5 '16 at 11:08
