The dictionary is quite large. The at-a-glance conjugation tables are fantastic.

    I use this app multiple times every day and really pleased with it. I like that it keeps track of my search history and allows me to keep a running list of words that I want to review. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that there are times when the definition of an Italian word is incomplete because it doesn't include all of the common synonyms.
  • I love it

    Traveling in Italy for three weeks has given me plenty of opportunity to use this app. Having some proficiency in Italian I have found it very useful for learning new words and verbs. The swipe function makes it very easy to switch from vocabulary to conjugations. I'm looking forward to discovering other features that I haven't used yet. A VERY GOOD APP! Well worth the money.
  • I absolutely love this

    It took a while to figure out how this app works but since then I am very happy to have it. It's easy to switch from Eng to It. Entries often have several uses of any given word (very helpful). If you've chosen a verb, pull down slightly on the screen and see an option to conjugate. The most impressive function here is seeing the opposite language underneath each conjugation - this is crucial to knowing you've chosen the correct tense. Swipe right to go back to the dictionary. Save favorites by tapping on the star. I use this app often and would buy it again in a heartbeat. I find the value gained by its high price is commensurate. Kudos to the developer! And thank you for making an incredibly useful app.

    Have never had a problem with it.
  • Inexcusable

    $25. The app structure is terrible - visually disorganized, forcing you to wade through text to find what you're looking for. Often requires typing the word out fully, with perfect spelling, in order to pull up a result. Includes no reflexive verbs, which differ in meaning. Often excludes important context for compound tenses - sometimes verbs use different auxiliary verbs depending upon meaning. Example: cominciare uses essere for pp when intransitive, but avere for transitive. Ingrassare means to fatten or gain weight - with avere, it would mean you're fattening something else up. Gaining weight would require essere. Piovere may use either, though the app shows only one. I repeat, $25 for a messy, incomplete and sometimes incorrect app. Not happy.

    Worth the price. Nice to have access to a detailed offline language resource while traveling. Lots of helpful information for someone serious about learning a language. I especially appreciate the conjugations. I had a problem with the "speak" function, but sent an email to support and got a prompt and helpful reply. Turns out that "speak" doesn't work in silent mode(my default mode), so I turned on the ringer and it works fine. Probably not an app for those who just want to learn a few survival phrases for occasional travel. But for those who want to dig deeper it is excellent.
  • Excellent Dictionary for Italian Learners 😉

    I have studied Italian for many years, read many books, and purchased many dictionaries, verb conjugators, etc etc. I have the Collins interactive dictionary on my Kindle, and it is great, but a bit compendious at times to switch between it and the book I am reading. This is faster to use even though on a separate device. Now, the next time I travel to Italy I can use only this! The verb conjugations are excellent and the possible uses, translations and idiomatics are all there! It does not need a WiFi feed in order to use it either. Plan to purchase the French one as well!
