Use one app to look up any Greek or Latin word: Logeion was developed at the University of Chicago to provide simultaneous lookup of entries in the many reference works that make up the Perseus Classical collection.

Excellent and Useful
I love this app. It makes working with classical texts easier, since I do not have to switch both application and keyboard to use it. I removed my separate Latin and Greek dictionaries after I saw what this allowed me to do!
Helpful changes might include: some kind of back button (as of now, one must type the first letter of the word to get back to the previous list) a way too skip down to a specific dictionary instead of having to scroll through them all (LSJ, DGE, Autenrieth, etc.), and, ideally, some kind of parsing feature to help with the more obscure conjugations of certain verbs. Although I own Marinone's "All the Geek Verbs," this last feature would help me when I don't have the book with me!
All things considered, this is an excellent reference application and with the added boon of being free!
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.
The Best Classics App Available
This is the most useful Classics app around. Having Lewis & Short, the LSJ, plus a number of other dictionaries and Classics encyclopedias - all offline - is nothing short of a godsend. Every other dictionary app that I've encountered offers only Latin or Greek; to have both languages included in one package is fantastic. I highly recommend this for all advanced (and even intermediate) Classicists.
