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

German-English Translation Dictionary and Verbs app good for

Especially good because you can look up the verb from its conjugated form which even a dictionary cannot do. History good for flash card lists.
Update: Still amazing. Would love to see a word of the day integrated! I am very impressed with this and is well worth the 20 dollars. It will keep me brushed up on my german always. Great interface to search words within a searched word. Two thumbs up!
The best UI of any other English-German dictionary app. Puts the Langenscheidt and Pons apps to shame.
Pls. retina support!!!!! Translator is top! And pls give the possibility to show more tenses at one time.
Nice German dictionary application. It is comprehensive, but as a learner I would like to see more examples of how words are used in the language. For example, multiple definitions are given for the English word "pathetic"; such as, pathetisch and traurig. They are both adjectives, but unless you know that traurig means "sad" you may use the word in the wrong context. I guess they both reflect a negative mood state and thats why they are grouped together, but examples of their use would be helpful. Another note... I really appreciate the colloquial language (Ausdruecken) that has been integrated into the App. It would be great to have more information on the origins of these expressions. Understanding some of the statements can be mind-bending; an example being "Mach mal Dampf" which is supposed to be equivalent to "pull your finger out"????
Offers both a comprehensive German-English dictionary as well as verb conjugations. This app is worth every penny.

Some bad moments

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.
The latest app iOS 9 update seems to be defective. Im encountering problems and bugs such as, when I enter a word into the search field, it just remains there, no matter how many other words are researched. Using the back arrow keys does nothing to remove the entry. Additionally, after looking at verb conjugations, it is impossible to back out to the original screen. These "issues" need immediate attention and resolution.
I should have read the other reviewer saying there is no pronunciation. Seriously, I would have never dropped 20 bucks for a dictionary that doesnt have pronunciation, I dont care how good this dictionary is. How could you possibly have a dictionary that doesnt help you pronounce the words (especially German!) I want my money back.
Ive owned this app for well over a year now, and it is by far the best German dictionary app on the market.
This program is a joke if you need a dictionary just use "Google Translate" its free and ten times more likely to give you correct congegation you can even talk to the program and it will in a sense talk back please for your sake dont get this
If you are looking for a serious dictionary, please get another one!
