Review by Viking Woman

Fast and Free Dictionary - I love that it's free. It's easy to find words and get translations. You can learn to pronounce words, that's the most important.

Absolutely Worthless - This is purely an advertisement for the full $10 version. Don't waste your time

Review by Nickname578

Marginally useful - I'm disappointed. Sure, it's a dictionary. But it doesn't even give plurals of nouns. It has a lot of verb conjugations, I'll give it that. The definitions are just lacking. In order to get all the information I need I still have to refer to Ultralingua's dictionary on my iPhone. I expected FAR more from a Mac OSX application. After spending $13, I guess I wanted a more full-featured dictionary. It does integrate with the German voice available as part of OS X, so it speaks the word to you in German, which is nice. I'd really like to have the ability to record my pronunciation of a word and then contrast that with the way it should be pronounced. Before that, I'd like to have better coverage of nouns. This is just OK - not great by any means.

Review by Matt.LastName

Works Well, but annoying - One World Dictionary is a great application — I'm learning Spanish, and it has good support for conjugations, it's well put together, and has reasonably complete word lists. My primary complaint is with the popups asking me to rate the application. It does have an option to "Don't Ask Me Again", but unfortunately it doesn't work. If not for the annoying popups (which I am writing this review to get rid of), it would be a 5-star application.

One World Dictionary - Spanish - This free dictionary and phrasebook is very helpful. The pronounciation of the words and phrases are excellent. My only disappointment is that I wish the dictionary had more words. I would be willing to pay a price for that.

Version 2.1.14
Review by mngeezer

full version missing essential Spanish verbs - Firstly, this review is for the full, paid version, not the free one. This generally is a very handy tool, and if the word you want is in there, everything is great. Sort of amazed that some common and essential Spanish verbs like "andar" are missing. Andar is usually considered on the the "Top 55" essential Spanish verbs. Merendar is also missing. Seems very odd to me. I only used the Spanish dictionary part, so this is not a review of any other language.
