* Fixed problem with random words
* Hundreds of additions and corrections to the database
I use this constantly and find it very helpful. The interface and organization are good. I agree with those who say that the verb conjugations should include the English translations. That is its one major flaw. To get those I bought the sister product with just verbs. That app does the job but searches can return odd results sometimes. I also bought the add on to this app that gives more example phrases. I like having those too. To make this app even more useful I would like to see it work with Siri. Often I want to look up a word while I am driving. If this app could do that it would fantastic. I would pay extra for that feature. Another request: make it work with iCloud so that Favorites are the same on all devices.
Occasional errors, but well worth the price
Occasionally, I have found quotations with Spanish on both sides (not Spanish/English). I have also found quotations with the desired word on the English side but not on the Spanish side. (I think this may be due to the fact that the database of Spanish is generated by a program.)
However, the vocabulary and verb conjugations are excellent, and I have not found any errors in them. I use this a lot in learning Spanish, and it is amazing that I have such a resource in a device that I carry in my pocket!
When I recently traveled to Baja Mexico, I realized I was missing a Spanish dictionary. I bought this App after careful review of the various competition.
I was delighted. It does English- Spanish and vice- versa. It is smart and provides an easy user history of words previously looked up. There are many more features that would take too long for me to discuss here. Suffice it to say, I'm pleased with this app and would highly recommend it.
