Beautiful and effective

Great definitions, diction (in precise IPA), and design of app. Needs work in small areas.

1. When using a Bluetooth keyboard on ipad, the app cuts off the bottom half to make space for the onscreen keyboard, even though it isn't there.

2. Could use basic hotkeys, so that one could, without having to take their hands of the keyboard, select the search bar, type their word, then use the arrow keys to select their word and see its definition.

I will check back and raise or lower my rating depending on whether or not the developers are given the chance to actually continue to support the app.

Not worth paying for.
1. Word of the Day is set up backwards. Instead of giving you a German word they give you an English word. Backwards from every other Word of the Day app I have used.
2. Bare minimum of a dictionary. For example, if you look up the word ‘boy’ in the app, it gives you only a one word translation, Junge, and absolutely nothing else. Correct, but what about the other 3 definitions and all the sample sentences that Collins’ full website has? Really - 1 word on the app vs 4 complete definitions and 7 samples on the full website.
Overall, a very bare bones app - for the cost a full dictionary should be provided.

Pretty good

Most words but missing some. Also, doesn’t provide perfect tense helping verb (hat, sein) or even corresponding past tense form of verb.
