Great app, just needs to be updated regularly.

I found out about WordReference in my foreign language classes in college; even my most honored professors rely on it, and I use it very frequently too. It is accurate and covers a vast vernacular, but it would be great if the app would be updated to work properly. As of now, I can select which dictionary to use, but the results won’t pull up. I get a crash notification saying there was an error. I just recently updated my iOS to the new 12 version, so maybe that has something to do with it. I’m not able to afford the newest iPhone every time it releases. I hope a new update fixes this issue soon, as I would really like to continue using it.

great dictionary, poorly maintained app

i use wordreference for spanish/english nearly every day. it has much better information and context than google translate, but it seems like the app development has just stalled out. the interface is out-of-date and clunky. more importantly, it has numerous bugs that often cause it to be unable to search, and when it is able to search, sometimes it fails to find entries that do exist. in the last week, it has gotten even worse. i haven’t been able to search for anything for several days, and the latest update has not fixed this. i hope this gets fixed soon, because i like this app and it’s 100% unusable for me right now.

Typically great but buggy lately

I’ve used this app for Spanish/English translation constantly over a couple years. I’ve never had a problem until now. It’s gotten increasingly buggier since October and now I can’t search at all. The last update kind of made it worse. Please fix it soon! Google translate is garbage and Word Reference has always been my go-to.
