Thumbs way up

I LOVE this app. So worth the money when living in Switzerland and trying to learn the local dialect. Very easy to use and navigate.
Highly recommended

Well made Swiss German-English dictionary

The only critique I have is that all the Swiss German sentences (examples) should have had an accompanying audio, not just the words.

Terrible dictionary

This dictionary has the vocabulary of a four-year old. I bought it to do research in the Swiss Federal Archives. Could not locate basic words like aussenwirtschaftsbericht. What a waste of money! Would like a refund.

Developer Response ,

Hi JayEss21, this dictionary is for translating Swiss German, the dialect spoken in the Swiss German part of Switzerland to English and vice versa. For your purpose you should use a regular High German - English dictionary. Please approach Apple for a refund.
