Very good

The content is excellent and is vastly cheaper than the hard version software the Oxford Paravia Italian Dictionary. It is a must for learners of Italian who are past the beginner stage as it gives the various different meanings and contexts for the words. I would agree with other reviewers that the functionality of the app could be improved. I created folders for various categories of words and accessing them is a bit of a palaver as you have to go via ‘my favourites. It is not intuitive. I would give this app five stars for content and three for functionality.

Not user friendly

Two main annoyances: first is that clicking the “back” button takes you to the preceding word in the list of search results rather than back to the list of search results (as would happen in a web browser). There is no “forward” button so it makes no sense for the “back” button to do this. Second is that you can’t use it one handed on an iPhone since the text input box is at the top of the screen rather than above the keyboard (like iMessage and WhatsApp are). This is very annoying if trying to read a book with one hand and translate words on the iPhone with the other. If these problems were fixed then I would give it a higher rating as content is good.

As other reviews have observed, the ability to search the different forms of a word (e.g different person and tense of verb) would make for a significant improvement.

I don’t find the gimmicks like word of the day of any value.
