    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.
  • Not ‘readable’

    Have followed this dictionary for a very long time. Since it came out the updates have been good. I like how now the dictionary is able to change the keyboard when the search is changed from English to Greek/vice versa BUT last thing to improve is for those who are trying to read the dictionary it is very very very inconvenient to have to scroll back down to where you were when you leave the app. It should be able to recall which page of the dictionary you were on when you leave the app. For example I’m reading the dictionary and see a word I’d like to write down in my notes app. I leave the dictionary interface to write it down and then when I return the dictionary has not kept my place. This would be absolutely wonderful and essential for those who are reading the dictionary and writing down unknown words - such as any student. The rating I gave is because it is very difficult to use the dictionary without this functionality. But again good updates so far over the years.

    There almost hasn’t been a word I couldn’t find in this dictionary. Can’t say that for others I’ve used. Glad I bought it!
