Excellence turns terrible
An example of "please let me downgrade". This used to be the best app available on the market with its simplicity and fast results. It has become the worst now in terms of usability with its overloaded and unintuitive UI. Cannot recommend it any more. Would give it -1 stars if it were possible.

This App Was Good
I downgraded this app from 4 to 2 stars with the version 5.0 update. It went from simple and easy to use, to a muddled and overly complicated interface overnight. I can't believe such drastic change could have been approved. My guess is that someone new took over the development team and felt a need to make their mark to stroke their ego. Whatever the case may be, I'm looking for another German dictionary app. I just wish I could take my Favorites list with me. Very disappointing. Good riddance.

App Only Crashes after Upgrade to 5.0
This app worked fine until a couple of weeks ago. Then. it started to crash intermittently for no apparent reason, but would always work after being relaunched. Hoping for a fix, I made the mistake of upgrading to version 5, and now when this app is launched, it briefly displays it's spiffy new graphic before promptly crashing. The app is installed on the newest model iPod Touch running the latest version of iOS. I haven't ben able to check-out the new interface yet, since the app doesn't actually work. This is all something of a problem for me as I'm currently studying German in Berlin. I have started the use the PONS Deutsch als Fremdsprache Wörterbuch app and am very pleased with it, but it is a single language dictionary and is, I believe, only available in the German iTunes store. The definitions obtained from this app are okay, but not top-notch. That is, the definitions given don't seem to appear in the correct order of usage, as is the case with academic-level dictionaries from PONS, Duden, etc. Note to Bitknights LLC: Stop sexing-up your interface and work on improving the quality of the definitions printed by this app. There was nothing wrong with the interface before, so you didn't need to work on that.

Awesome
Easy to use. Quick and to the point. Love the sentence examples and how easy it is to go back and forth from German to English.

Mediocre
OK, but it's really frustrating to type in a word you know is a word and get no results. Example: type in any German adjective like verwundbar and if you type verwundbare, the dictionary comes up with nothing. How difficult would it be to have the app come up with possible options? But I guess you get what you pay for. Also, there are many words in common usage (newspaper) that don't appear at all.
