One of a kind
The app has the most expansive (and credible) dictionary of Latin and Greek I have yet to find in iTunes. On top of that, it works offline! The only problem is that the search engine is a little limited when it comes to searching different word morphologies; with Latin, for example, I can only find words if I search its nominative form. Of course having all forms would take up a lot of memory. Perhaps the app can become online compatible in the future? ;)
Thanks for a truly awesome app! Indispensable for scholars on the go without an Internet connection.
So much great data
This application is the Greek and Latin dictionary I've wanted for years. Finally, the data is clearly formatted, information is organized, and multiple sources are collated. The aesthetic is pleasing, but the data is gold. I could not recommend this application enough for a classicist!
Best Dictionary App Ever!
Spectacular app! Totally comprehensive. I can't believe I didn't know about it before!
