Attikos provides the reader with in-text access to morphological data and short definitions for these texts in their entirety, along with easy access to entries in Logeion, which includes lexical entries from LSJ, Autenrieth, Slater, Middle Liddell, and examples from the corpus. Attikos also features an easy to use Greek parser that provides accent sensitive parses for a word and displays the Logeion entry for the corresponding lemma. Finally, as a resource to Greek students everywhere, handouts have been included that display verb paradigms, noun/adjective declensions, and articles/pronouns.

A Gift From The Gods!

I can't believe I just found this app. I've been collecting and reading OCTs and other hard-copy texts for over 40 years, the "Middle Liddell" at my elbow and the ponderous LSJ stationed on its own table across the room. They're not obsolete now - especially Commentaries - but I'll be doing most of my reading now with just my iPad mini on my lap. It's such a pleasure to read these authors unencumbered by two or three other books.

Since I hadn't read any Attic in a while, I tried the app out by reading one work each from Plato, Xenophon and Lysias. Yes, it crashes when switching screen orientation, but that's more of a endearing eccentricity than a real bug. Meanwhile, I have the font scaled to suit my aging eyes, and lose myself in the Greek, enjoying the easy access to the dictionaries.

Just wonderful. It will (optimistically) be two years before I run out of books I want to read. But I'd like to suggest that it might be nice to add in The Homeric Hymns, Lyric Poets, Xenophon's Hellenica and Memorabilia, and maybe Theocritus for a touch of Doric. Adding further texts seems to me the only way to improve this already extraordinary app.

Many thanks to those who conceived and made this superb tool.

Probably the best Ancient Greek app available

When trying out Ancient Greek apps, it's a little frustrating since many of the apps offer some features, but not others. This one does a great job in collecting all the great features that you will need – texts, dictionaries, and parser. I have deducted one star just because of aesthetics. It is not very pleasing to the eye, but certainly gets the job done.

Also, having an iPhone version would be really nice.

Rough but amazing

The app is utterly fantastic - having the Perseus library with a better UI at your fingertips is worth the price of an iPad. There are things that I wish it did, and some bugs I wish would be fixed, but with all of its imperfections it's hard to exaggerate how useful I find it.

Bug: It crashes hard when changing screen orientations.

Problems: iPhone support would be a huge win. The font isn't bad, but it could be better. More text, of course!

Opportunity: I'd pay lots of money to have the full Liddell & Scott integrated, or one (or more) of the Homeric lexicons. It's probably a pipe dream, but I'd pay more than the cost of the print lexicons without blinking.
