Best Dictionary App I have ever tried now for MAC - I 've been using this dictionary since 2004 on Windows because It has best dictionaries comparing to others in my opinion. After I migrated to MACs, I tried all Existing Dictionaries for MACs and could not find anything similar to Lingvo. I could not believe my eyes when I saw a MAC edition. I installed it. The UI could be better, but I don't care. I have my Lingvo for MAC. This purchase made my day. Thank you so much…..

Review by solgjest

Why does PC version is better? - I read reviews and decided to buy it though, because I used Abbyy Lingov for PC since 2007. I was happy with PC version: I was able to point the mouse and have Internet words translated; it looked nicer, there was history button; it could translate words from the word when pointing. BUT, Mac version looks like REAL DEMO. I am very very upset. I wonder why Apple sells it to us?!

if you slow why to show a splash srceen and block users? - If your app starts forever why do you show a modal splash screen (habit from 90x) that blocks from using the computer?

No American pronunciation - I was very disappointed to find that the version for Mac doesn’t have American pronunciation which was one of the main points to buy it. Other than that evrything is fine so far.

Review by Splixed

Bad UI - It works as a dictionary, but UI is so bad I can’t even imagine how you can make it worse. So OK, it’s formally functional, but you’ll hate it.
