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.

Not impressed with the dictionary
I clicked "look up" on the first four words of Horace's first ode (Maecenas atavis edite regibus). Every definition was completely wrong. Not quite as bad with Caesar, but there were still some howlers.

Very resourceful!
I've used this a lot in my Latin studies, thank you so much for developing it. However, in the Comic Latin Grammar of the Learning section, there is a racial slur which was honestly really horrifying to find. I suggest editing it, please, for your own good.

Love it but
You should make some exercises to praxtice the declensions and stuff like that also all of the words definitios are kind of messy I struggle to find the actual meaning of the word because there is this bunch of letters make it clear and easy to use, but I love it but pleaase do it

The best Latin app available
This is hands down the best Latin app available! The work put into this app is amazing, and much appreciated. While certainly not perfect, this app is so much more extensive than you could imagine--I know I was surprised to see so much packed into this. Dictionary, readings, quizzes, flashcards, grammar... And I think the recent update is excellent. I personally study Medieval Latin so it's great to have some here, especially my man Bede! Can't wait for the next update--this app just keeps getting better. It's a little pricey compared to the standard app price of .99-1.99, but every cent is absolutely worth it. I mean come on, how many pounds of literature, reference texts, and dictionaries does this app squeeze into the convenience of your phone/iPad? A no-brainier for any student of Latin, at any age.
