    A very useful dictionary for students and professionals. Periodical updates will be needed to maintain its high level. Congratulations!
  • Simply the best.

    I’m a California court certified interpreter and have used many dictionaries over the last 28 years. This one is simply the best.
  • Best dictionary for iOS

    I used the PC version of this for years and I have to say that it is the best Spanish-English dictionary for iOS. It is a mirror of the big, thick $40 printed version. Pretty good for students. The content of this dictionary is five stars but this app is 1 star, maybe. I am *CONSTANTLY* asked to review the app. Also, newer makeovers are making the app less intuitive. It's difficult to tell whether "Spanish" or "English" is selected. Also, this app should have a persistent state: when I come back, I'd like to see where I was when I left it last time.
  • Bad UI and functionality

    Too many useless features but the app doesn’t even have a good search functionality. Good luck finding any expression of more than one word. Wanna search how to say “on time” in Spanish? Good luck finding that either under “on” or “time” - it’s literally like find a needle in a hay. Another annoying thing is that you have to click twice to add a word as favorite while in almost any other app, it’s a one-click. Whoever designed the UI of the app should be ashamed.

    The pronunciation is awful. Hard to hear. Seems to be computer generated.

    Every time I start the app I get to see their advertising for other apps AND the word of the day in English. You have to type in a word and switch to Spanish in order to then see the Spanish word of the day. This used to be a great app from a trusted source with an old out-of-date interface. Now it just feels like any other free dictionary app. It’s a real disappointment.
