They should charge much more for all this
This app is just packed with wonderful features. Any Latin student or class should rush to get it. Admittedly the instant lookup too often produces wrong and absurd definitions. I guess it's hard to create a direct lookup of inflected forms in a highly inflected language. If it could be made better, it would increase the value of the app. While I'm wishing, I might as well wish for more of the texts to be switchable to the English version. But great.

So Much for So Little !!
I agree with other reviewer, there is a lot in this app, & i got it when it first came out & have been really pleased to see it improved along the way- easier to navigate & better lay out w/ more info to access - not just little bug fixes along the way. I only took Latin in grammar & high school, years ago, but wanted to re-learn again - A Little ! But didn't know where or how to start, this was perfect ! So it depends on what u are looking for; this is not the beginning & end to latin for $5. But it is at least the beginning to middle & lots of doors to open & close, to decide what & how much 'Latin' u are looking for ! ( revised ) there is more vocab. !

Simply flawless
One of the most used Apps on my iPad, and absolutely unbeatable in every particular. A workhorse set of dictionaries, Latin texts, translations, and grammatical helps. Layout is pleasing, intuitive, simple. Content is top notch. Price is amazing for what you get. The dictionaries alone hv saved me hours of page flipping. For any Latin student of any level: just get it. No golden soul will ever regret this one.

Great App
This app is amazing. It has tons of stuff to help me practice and learn the language and history of Latin. There is literally weeks' worth of reading on hereIt could use a few changes though. Like what the person before me said, the dictionary can be pretty confusing, especially the L&S one since it has tons of words and stuff all crowded together in each definition. The dictionaries, although helpful, can be pretty restrictive in searches, in ways like sometimes you can only look up the first principle part, and no other form of a word. Also, I really like the flashcards, but I wish there was a way to also review English to Latin with them too besides making a whole new deck with the words reversed. And also I would like it If I could make my own completely custom tests to practice things like declensions and stuff. This app is otherwise awesome. Every student or teacher of Latin should definitely get this app.

Old translations.
This is a very well thought out app and an excellent tool. The issue I have is that the translations I've looked at look like they're a century old or older. I've taken three years of college Latin, and our goal was to translate into grammatically correct, modern English. We created modern English translations that made sense to modern English readers. The time should have been taken to find a modern translation if not create one. That being said, it is a wonderful tool for any Latin student. I would personally work through the original texts instead of using the translations provided.
