  • Best available, serious flaws

    This is a good dictionary, but the developers need to add some basic functionality to allow recognizing conjugated forms of verbs — lack of this basic feature makes it impossible to look up words in example sentences because it doesn’t recognize them since they are conjugated or declined. Hope they will add this. Still, very good content for medium-size Gk En Gk dict!

    I read Greek newspapers and use this dictionary to help with the words I don’t know. I like the word of the day to help build vocabulary as well. Occasionally I don’t find words I’m looking for and have to go to Google for them.
  • Important feature doesn’t work

    The flash card feature of the app doesn’t work properly!!! I can’t believe it this was such a practical feature and when I look up the definition of the word - it gives a different card!! I can’t believe the function doesn’t work. Why have it then?

    I like the app OK, but I miss the ability to copy and paste like I could do on the Android version.
  • Expect more!

    We should all expect a lot more from electronic dictionaries. A dictionary for Greek should conjugate every verb in every tense and mood, and every noun and every adjective in every case. It should be possible to look up every word in every form in which it occurs. This one does not even give the genders or the plural forms of nouns. To get the gender you have to look up the English translation. There are no verb conjugations at all. So many common words cannot be looked up at all. The Collins German-English dictionary at least provides a complete conjugation table for every verb and the genders and plurals of nouns. So there's no excuse for not doing a little better with the Greek. An outrageous feature of this app is that it periodically pops up a window that asks you to give it five stars. You can close the window but you cannot decline.
