Customer Reviews

Good Data; Frivolous, Annoying Design


The update created a monster. This app does not now feature "lovely animated graphics." It features the image of a Latin bookplate that wastes time rolling in and out of view with every lookup. Cute first time, but gets old quickly. Worse, the pretty image so lacks space for the data that many definitions are truncated. (They scroll, but that's not obvious, nor should it be necessary.) Arcane navigation.

Very helpful!


I am a teacher and use this app often. Students who have a grasp of latin abbreviations and root words perform much better on comprehension tests and simply understand the language so much better.

Good useful app, especially for college paper!


Easy to use. Good size database. Could be better with more Latin words. Would be more educative if it had voice pronunciation guidance for the Latin words.
