Quality App for German Learners

I am a retired high school language teacher. I still tutor a few students and I try to find tools that younger people will use without having to twist their arm. iPhone apps are an obvious choice.
This app is one of my favorites. Every student needs a good dictionary even if they have lesson type apps like Duolingo or Rosetta Stone. It has a good breadth of vocabulary and has more slang terms than other apps I have tried. After students master the basics, learning slang is a big motivator so they can talk like a local.
There is a nice phrase book with hundreds of useful translation for a trip to Germany. You can add phrases too which is great because no app contains everything you need.
I highly recommend this app for language teachers and students.

Thorough & Easy to Use

I’ve used this app for several trips to Germany and Switzerland- both to prepare for the trip, and once I’m there. I can work on phrases for common situations whenever I have a few free moments, and refer to it overseas when I need help with a sign or menu, or get some help when asking for something. I use it many times a day when in Europe. It is very fast and intuitive. Highly recommend it!

Buyer beware it Shows adds even after purchase!

I paid for the full version $9.99 German Dictionary & Translator +
Guess what? After "translating more than 12,000 characters" the app informs you that you've translated 12,000 characters and ads will be show again. The description says nothing about showing ads after their limit of 12,000 characters. Do I feel cheated? You bet! Silence from the author when I challenged them on this. They need to update their description and be honest that you are not getting unlimited use of their app when you buy it!
