*** Please note: If you are familiar with the version of Ultralingua sold from our website, you'll notice some minor differences in this version. In order to make the app available here, we had to remove two features that didn't meet Apple's guidelines:
• The hotkey keyboard shortcut
• The dashboard widget

For teaching graduate students to access French journal articles in their research, I have found no better resource than Ultralingua. The program is accurate, fast, intuitive, and affordable. Students who have tried other print or software French resources, inevitably come to agree that Ultralingua is unsurpassed in design and usability.

Customer Reviews

Italian/English app is weak

I have Ultralingua English/Italian on my Iphone and Pad. They're way better than this. They provide phonetic transcriptions for Italian words, this doesn't. Their entries are far more robust, more like a real dictionary, with usage and grammatical information.

As an example, on this app, the entry for the Italian verb "fare" which has a gazillion meanings looks like this:

fare v.
1. do v. 2. execute v. 3. have v. 4. make v.

I needed something for my laptop, for writing offline and thought the $20 was an ok price. Now I'm thinking it was a waste.
On the good side, the interface is clean. Verb conjugations at hand are nice too. The imperative tense however is incorrect I believe. It looks like the subjunctive.

Good, but not worth $40!

This is a decent (portuguese) dictionary, but I could be a full language suite for this price. $40 is especially much when you consider the online resources that do the dame thing. One thing in particular that annoys me more than anything is that if you look up a word while the conjugate menu is up and then realize you need the definition, you have to start the search over again because they apparently to talk to each other...

Its just ok.

I find myself having to go quite often to other sources to find definitions to the words I’m looking for. I would describe it as adequate but noticably incomplete. The dictionary I’m using is German-English.
