  • Expensive for what you get

    By Orakledba
    On the good side there are 365000 entries. But, since this is an English-German dictionary then only about half are German words. Still, that is a decent number given that others contain 50,000 or fewer German words. When you are offline that can make a big difference. On the negative side is the absence of noun plurals and this is a big deal! Many German nouns take on very different forms which makes looking up the word you want challenging. For any serious German student noun plural listings are a must have. I wound up having to purchase both the German dictionary -- it contains noun plural endings-- and the German-English dictionary so that I have a more complete resource for learning German. Unfortunately the German dictionary only has 60,000 words.
  • So limited for the $$ spent

    By SwissMs.
    I agree with the other reviews, there could be so much more built into this app. You get more help from Leo, which you can download for free. I was most disappointed with the almost zero effort on verb conjugation - if you don’t enter the infinitive, good luck, and no partizip II will be offered. I also hit the limit on my “flash cards”??? Buy Verbix and Leo combined would be great.
  • Plurals and Conjugations

    By Tatlav
    App is great but would be perfect if there are plural versions of the words and also verb conjugations. It is an expensive app and these can be easlisy imported to this app.
  • Decent, but Missing Some Features

    By Fritz D. Katze
    I've recently purchased Langenscheidt's Standard German - English dictionary app for iOS. It’s a decent collection of over 70,000 word entries and definitions, but I have the following suggestions for improving the app: 1. Include plural spellings and genitive endings for all German nouns. 2. Include verb conjugation tables for all German verbs. For some reason, the English verb conjugation tables are available, but the tables for the German verbs are not. 3. Make it possible for the user to save multiple, custom flash card stacks, so that one may have a stack focusing prepositions, a stack focusing on a particular set of verbs, another stack focusing on a set of nouns, etc. Currently, there is just one configurable flash card stack. 4. Include pre-loaded flash card stacks for typical areas of study (e.g., accusative prepositions, or dative prepositions). 5. Bring the interface into alignment with the new look and feel of iOS 7.
  • weak update

    New iOS7-like icon, but the app design is still the same? Come on you can do better for such an expensive app! Otherwise good app, more stars when updated.
  • No Plurals! DO NOT BUY!

    By bonkydog
    This edition does not include plural forms for nouns. Note that their more expensive editions do. They have this information, they've just deliberately hobbled their cheaper offerings, perhaps hoping you'll shell out another $50+ once you learn enough German to realize that a dictionary without plural forms is pretty useless. This is a shabby way to treat your customers.
  • It's ok

    By DianaR9999
    I was disappointed that unlike a paper dictionary, this version does NOT show the plural forms of nouns. This is important on German and is shown in any other dictionary.
  • Like a lot

    Flash card feature greatly appreciated. Like being able to use when abroad and not connected to phone/Internet. Translations useful. Highly recommended.
  • Don't buy & don't waste your money

    By Enttäuscht - disappointed
    No German verb conjugation. Not even the preterite or the perfect. Word formation? Who needs that in German. Definitions are very limited. Very poor examples. Too expensive for what this app does. It should be free!
  • Translate

    By minguset
    Not significantly more useful than many lower cost apps. Agree with previous reviewers the lack of plural and conjugations seems like a basic oversight.
