  • American pronunciation

    By Alexbbbb123
    Finally the app was updated and American pronunciation was added. Missing American pronunciation was the biggest disappointment for me.
  • Money theft

    By Dworak1
    In the latest update they removed pop-up translation. You pay almost $40 for an application. It’s not cheap, but the application comes with a set of useful features which justifies the purchase. Then suddenly one of these features (the most useful one for me) is removed for no reason. I am very disappointed. It’s equivalent to a money theft. I won’t be surprised if next they remove the ability to translate and we’ll have to buy another dictionary.
  • App was not updated for ages and now it crashes a lot

    By dmitry.mikhailov
    I rarely write updates, but this time I have to. The app was not updated for ages, that means there were features, no new dictionaries or updates to existing ones, no speed improvements, ugly UI. Even a simple feature to arrange available dictionaries to have some on top is not possible. Of course, no pronunciations for EN dictionaries. Now it was updated, and it crashes A LOT. just try to search for “Märchenschloss” in DE-RU mode. Every time it crashes. I’ve bought it to use for EN, DE languages but now I think I’ve made a mistake. I should consider buying other solutions (from dictionary publishers which cost even less!). I hope it is a useful info for all considering this specific app as the main dictionary.
  • Can’t live without it

    By eugenekardash
    The dictionary is awesome. Rarely I can’t find a definition. My everyday desktop tool to translate from English to Russian and vice versa. Thanks!
  • if you slow why to show a splash srceen and block users?

    By PoohFromSpb
    If your app starts forever why do you show a modal splash screen (habit from 90x) that blocks from using the computer?
  • Bad UI

    By Splixed
    It works as a dictionary, but UI is so bad I can’t even imagine how you can make it worse. So OK, it’s formally functional, but you’ll hate it.

  • Version 1.9.6 - Supports El Capitan

    By npcarey
    I just purchased ABBYY Lingvo for my Mac and so far I am very impressed with the power of it. The pop-up translations when I’m reading Russian news online is extremely helpful. The dictionary lookup has been great so far, and I’m looking up a lot of words I cannot otherwise get a decent translation of. I’m just learning to use it, but so far it has been great. And it is working with El Capitan.
  • Awful, clunky product that’s a scam.

    By Third Rome
    I bought this in 2013 thinking that Lingvo would send me free updates to keep my dictionary running with every new IOS release. Uh uh. They stopped updating last year’s release and just re-released a new software package. So this package might work with Yosemite but give it a year, it won’t work on any new IOS.
  • Excellent programs for other OSes, OK for Mac

    By Pete0596
    This program would be very difficult to use, except that there are good macro programs available (like Keyboard Maestro). By making a macro that opens Lingvo, pastes text, and hit enter, I was able to make a good “lookup word” shortcut, which suddenly makes the program very helpful. This functionality should be included in Lingvo, though. Nevertheless, for value considering all the dictionaries, and for the fact that there’s really nothing else out there, it gets 5 stars.
