    But why isn't it up to date with your reliable French and German dictionaries?
  • Nice, but not what I wanted

    I initially thought that this dictionary would be fine, but the more I use it, the more I am disappointed. Many common day words are not available in Spanish, i.e. if you're reading a Spanish newspaper or book and look up a word, e.g. sudario. If you look for that, it won't find it. However, if you look for the Spanish word for shroud in English, it will give you the Spanish word, sudario. As I said, many examples of this non-cross referencing, which is bothersome.
  • Insufficient.

    Very disappointing. Most entries are extremely brief, lacking examples and any but the most basic of definitions. NOT worth $10; the SpanishDict free app is just as good, and free online dictionaries (Spanishdict, Reverso, and Wordreference) are much better. PLEASE update this to a more comprehensive dictionary. Also, please include functionality specific to the iPad, such as zooming.
  • Just what I need

    This application is titled "dictionary & grammar." I had hoped to find materials such as those in Collin's outstanding grammar section of their Spanish Concise Dictionary. Sadly, I am disappointed to find little if any grammar content.
