Hi all,

I always wanted to be able to use my Kindle dictionaries on desktop. Hence I am happy to announce Mobidict 1.0 which lets you read azw/mobi dictionaries on Linux/Windows and macOS.

Binaries are available from https://github.com/ismail/mobidict/releases

I appreciate any testing & feedback.

Thank you!

Release History:

v1.1 - 04.06.2018
* Updated libmobi for better mobi file compatibility
* Windows/macOS binaries now use Qt 5.11 (upgraded from 5.10)
* Removed a hack used for broken mobi dictionaries.

v1.0 - 16.11.2017
* Initial release

Unfortunately it doesn't work for me, I tried it with 3 dictionaries taken from this page https://bookfere.com/en/dict:
The Italian one seems to load endlessly
That German one says corrupt
That "internet" one says corrupt the same

correcting me, the Italian dictionary works

Thanks for testing, if you use the official Kindle dictionaries (which you can download for yourself from the http://amazon.com/myk interface) it should work.
