Update suggestions

There are two updates I would like to see. First, I would really like to see medical terms put in. Imagine when you are sick and don't have the words to understand what is going on.

Second, I would love for the verb to conjugate directly from the search. Currently, when you find a verb you have to retype the verb in the -ir search. It would save time if I didn't have to retype the verb I had just found.

Otherwise, I love this app. I am fairly fluent in Portuguese and am currently living in Brazil, so this app is so helpful for the words I don't know. I also love the verb conjugation. Thank you.

I bought this dictionary because it was probably the first available for the iPhone and it also always shows up first in searches for Portuguese-English dictionaries. I spend a lot of time in Brazil and having a dictionary on the iPhone is an enormous convenience. But I often find serious problems with the entries in this app: (1) often I can't even find the words that I am looking for, encountered in Folha de Sao Paulo or some revista about the novellas. In other words, palavras that should be in a useful dictionary. (2) many of the definitions offered are too brief and misleading or offer only one meaning when several can be found in other dictionaries (eg the iPhone Aurelio). Sometimes it actually seems to be just plain incorrect.

What is strange is that Ulta-lingua offers the excellent Collins dictionary at the same price. they should simply remove this dictionary from their catalog and stick with their much superior alternative

The app does offer conjugation of verbs however, and this is very useful but this same feature is available in the Collins dictionary also.

I wish all apps were this good

Shortly after buying my iPhone two years ago I bought the Ultralingua Portuguese-English dictionary app for it. Although I was hesitant given the price, it turned out to be a well-spent $20. The dictionary quality itself is as good as a medium to large-sized dictionary (not as good as the two-volume reference dictionary I have), but the UI is what makes it worth it -- making it easy to switch between definitions and verb conjugations -- everything is linked the way you want it to be. And they have made regular updates to the app as needed. When I bought my iPad, I was very pleased that they turned their dictionaries into "universal" apps so it had a special UI for the iPad without requiring a separate purchase. I can't recommend this app enough.
