Ratings and Reviews

Very helpful

David in CA

I really like this app. I cannot pretend to any great expertise in Latin dictionaries. But I like this one because it identifies words if you give any of the many forms of the word. Latin, of course, has endings which can multiply the forms to a bewildering number. And sometimes there are forms that are just unrecognizable by a humble student such as myself. I recently, for example came across the term "lautus erit" in Familia Romana chapter XXX. I could not figure it out. But this app got me to the future perfect passive form of the term for wash. I had puzzled over that for days before I finally broke down and consulted this app. It got me there in moments.

So I recommend it.

Not as great as other Ultralingua dictionaries!


I was initially excited to see a Latin dictionary on IPhone, but ended up dissapointed. I own two other Ultralingua dictionaries (Italian and French) and am satisfied with those. I expected that this dictionary would come with the conjugation as others that I have bought, but unfortunately it does not. The conjugation on verbs and additional noun declensions would be a great addition to this app. Without those features, I find it hard to justify the money that I spent and thus the 2 stars rating. Once they have implemented the features, I will upgrade the review.

Low quality info, great logistics


Logistically this is a great app just like Ultralingua's other apps. As far as quality of information (amount and accuracy) this app needs a lot of work though. I am disappointed at the lack of accuracy in the translations for some words and at the fact that when I look up a noun or verb I do not see declension number or principle parts. Please update, I trust Ultralingua's apps to be of high quality.
