Good Italian English dictionary!

I use this Dictionary all the time – it used to be the first one I went to (I have several on my iPhone) it can be used off-line. Unfortunately after some update in 2018 the user interface became cumbersome. Multiple tabs are required to switch between Italian and English and to erase the previous entry. Also Tapping on any link in the dictionary does not work. For example to go to the verb list to see how a verb is conjugated no longer works. I tried to give feedback but was not successful. I dropped my rating to 4 stars. However it is still among my first choices for an Italian English dictionary. It includes good examples and thorough explanations.

Love it

This is my favorite app. So many so-called dictionaries give one word or overly simple definitions. This one, like it’s huge hardcover version, gives comprehensive information on every word. It’s like a portable language textbook at your fingertips.
Many definitions begin with a paragraph about subtle differences in usage. The many examples help a beginner like me understand how the word is used in sentences.
Other favorite functions: tap any word in the definition or example and you are sent to its definition. If it’s a verb, there is a link to a page with info on tenses. Another tap and you can hear the pronunciation. There are links to grammar explanations.
Like all similar apps it’s fast. But I love to explore the relationships between words and subtle synonyms. If I search from the English side I can take that info to the Italian side and study it further.........I could go on and on. Love it!

The best...

As a an ESL teacher for Italian students, I really appreciate the quality of this dictionary. How is this only $10? I also have the hard copy of this dictionary, which has been by my side for years. Now with the digital version, I am overwhelmed with joy. Nothing beats the convenience of the digital version. It is such a powerful language learning tool! I use it for learning/improving my Italian, too. In my opinion, this is the one and only English/Italian dictionary. Having used practically every available Italian/English dictionary, I believe this one far exceeds the rest.
