My go-to translator

This iPhone app has an extensive range of words and expressions. Having lived in Germany for decades and then come back to the USA, my fluency in German has decreased although my passive knowledge is still fairly good. However, the accuracy of my spelling and idiomatic expressions are greatly improved with this dictionary.

Great App, a Few Issues...

This is a fantastic dictionary app that covers a huge range of modern & outdated words as well as idiomatic expressions. Definitely the best free Ger-Eng dictionary out there!

Would be a five star app if it weren't for the extremely frustrating organization of the entries. All possible definitions of a word are organized alphabetically instead of by frequency or meaning, which sometimes makes it challenging to figure out what a word actually means. There are also frequent typos in the entries which may or may not be a big deal, depending on how much german you already know.

Love the dictionary, the functionality leaves something to be desired

I've been using this for several years, and both the number and quality of definitions are excellent. I love how it's all offline too. It is really irritating, though, how every time I open the app it cuts off my music if I'm playing anything. The fact that I can't tap a word in a definition to go to see other translations of that word makes it difficult to make sure the word I've got is the one I'm looking for. If these two issues were fixed, this would be a five star app.
