Very good but could be better
I am a beginner student of latin and wanted a latin dictionary that worked offline and was simple but not lacking and that is exactly what I got. It is reliable and hasn't been wholly lacking in most words I've searched. The primary problems I've seen is that, when searching, it almost always requires you to search a word from a particular declension or will not find it rather than the alternative of being able to predict what the word is you want. Also the fact results aren't shown as you type is mildly annoying. Overall very useful for beginner students such as myself and could be more so with minimal effort put into it. (Highly recommended for beginners; all others should keep looking)
Decent, but could have more
This app is just a dictionary used for looking up words that are not declined or conjugated. The words need to be in their original state in order for this app to fin them. Example: the app does not know what the word Feminae is, but knows what the word Femina is. This app is only helpful in looking up words in their non declined/conjugated state. However, once you find a word in that state, then it is helpful in the fact that it gives you a lot of detailed information as stated in the other reviews.
Has conjugation/declension chart for every word, awesome!
I use it with SPQR. SPQR is good, but it doesn't have chart for every word in all cases, gender and number, so I have to look for case endings and put them all together. But with this one, I don't have to do it anymore! It tells you the declension/conjugation, the word translation and its all endings. I love it!
