Must-have app if you speak English and German (or are trying to learn). I love that all words from both languages are in one list so you don't need to specify which language you are translating from and to. I like the provided list of common phrases (awesome when you're traveling) and I like how the dictionary entries are cross-linked and clickable so it makes exploring related words a lot easier. I use this app a lot while trying to learn German by listening to German podcasts. One thing that I've noticed that is a bit annoying is that the sound volume of my podcast always drops when I open up the dictionary so sometimes I have to adjust the volume up and down but I'm sure that is an easy fix that will hopefully be done soon.
This app has a nice user interface and lots of bells and whistles. But as a dictionary, it has some serious problems.
1. I purchased this app for $9.99 because it boasts 628,000 offline entries, so I thought it would help me read real German literature. I was planning to use the app while on a plane, so the offline dictionary was key. To test the scope of the dictionary, I looked up the words in the first paragraph of my book. In the first paragraph alone there were 12 words not in the dictionary. The dictionary is simply not useful for reading literature.
2. The dictionary offers full conjugations of German verbs, even verbs that are fully regular. This is a nice feature, especially for beginners. However, the dictionary does not indicate the plural form of German nouns. This is a bizarre omission, as the plural form of German nouns is often unpredictable. While the verb conjugations would make this app useful for beginners, the absence of plural forms make this dictionary a very poor choice for beginners.
The dictionary is too limited for advanced students, and omits information that is critical especially for beginning students. So I could only recommend this app to tourists.
Based on the many wonderful reviews I purchased this tool. On the positive side there are many features offered that seem to work reasonably well. If one only needs a quick and easy tool for searching very common words along with verb endings this might be ok for you. But if you are serious about getting a good German dictionary this isn't it. There are numerous errors in gender, spelling, and translation that make this utility confusing to use. On many occasions I've brought up these errors -- along with the serious omission of noun plurals -- to the authors. Their "canned" response is that they know about it and the next release will fix it. After six months I've never seen a new release.
