"I NEVER write reviews for apps but I HAVE to with this one. Ive been using it for about a year now in my Spanish classes and while doing homework. It has helped me tremendously! If I cant remember how to conjugate a verb, it can easily do that." -User review

"A linguists dream. When you look something up, it presents you with a wide range of possible meanings, tons of idiomatic expressions, and also the next several head words alphabetically- so you can discover other words just like when you use a real dictionary! Unlike a dictionary, however, Ultralingua will correct my spelling. I have recommended it to several people already!" -User review

Pros and cons of Spanish-English Translation Dictionary and Verbs app for iPhone and iPad

Spanish-English Translation Dictionary and Verbs app good for

Im an expat living in Mexico and I use my Ultralingua translator constantly. Worth every penny and the usages are quite current The conjugation tables are great too, and the entire guide is well-organized and easy to use. It would be great to see future updates that incorporate some more Mexican colloquialisms and street slang. Are any planned?
This is a great dictionary. Even for the high price. Im a Canadian living in Peru and I use it all the time.
Acts like a complete dictionary. Everything is indexed and searchable. Conjugation table and various tenses is quite complete. Number translation is quite handy!! Well worth it and invaluable for somone learning.
Dictionary is very good and i think worth the price; its helping me a lot here in argentina. However, Developer, please update the app and include one touch definition from the verb conjugation feature. Why cant we click on the infinitive of the verb for definition when using the verb conjugator? We need to re-type the word in the definition search, this can be time consuming and is not intuitive! Otherwise keep up the good work
Ive been using this app for months now and it has replaced my hard copy span/eng dictionary. I use this app daily. The history feature makes it much more useful than a traditional dictionary since I dont have to re-look up a word if I forget it. I agree with Mr.bear18777, there needs to be a link between definitions and verb conjugations, why do I have to exit and retype the verb to see the definition? Fix that and Ill give it 5 stars.
Absolutely fabulous !! and the upgrade is so much more efficient than the previous version

Some bad moments

This was the first app I ever bought (2008). Its been very helpful in my travels when I didnt have access to the internet. Unfortunately, theres a bug in the program that only shows up after continued use. The only way to solve it is to uninstall and reinstall the app. If I leave the app open and then turn the phone off, it crashes when I turn the phone on again. If I jump to another program and then back to this app, it starts the app anew. The history function stops working and the app always opens at a word I was searching for weeks ago. My other problem with this app is that you can only copy one word at a time which is absolutely useless.
BRING BACK OLD INTERFACE - as option perhaps. OR FIVE NE MY MONEY BACK!! The old design had its flaws (too thick, more taps necessary) but it was efficient. Now u have to scroll kilometres and miles of text to get to what I need and its not good on eye too.
I love this app. Its the best translation/ learning tool around!
This WAS a 4-star product. Now the rotation bug they mention makes this UNUSABLE on the iPad. They discovered this serious problem on Jan 28 but dont have it fixed yet. Great dictionary, the best, when its working. A worthless $20 piece of junk right now. They should have pushed a fix in 24 hours.
I also have the German & French dictionaries from Ultralingua, and cant believe that with this update, the landscape mode is gone from all three. Frankly Id much rather do without the latest improvements but at least be able to use this on my iPad. The worst part about it is that even in portrait mode, when you try to enter any text for search, the keyboard that pops up is in… landscape mode, which blocks the field where youre supposed to enter the text. Thus rendering this app TOTALLY useless. Please fix this PRONTO!
The new graphics are a disaster. The new font is very hard to read. A giant step backwards. The new logo is another step downward. Thank God I have the old version on my iMac. This new version will soon be deleted.
