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.

Good but there are problems
I like this update, but it needs some fixes. The Lewis and Short has some problems now. For example, look up aequus. In mine, the entry says (null). The way that Jerome's vulgate was entered is atrocious -- verse by verse! Why? Who wants to tap next constantly? If you read very slowly and have to look up lots of words, I guess that the format is not a problem, but for the more advanced reader, this is useless. Even Olive Tree's unpunctuated version is preferable to this. Why no Terence? A staple of the ancient curriculum, preferred to Plautus for the training of youngsters from Cicero's day to Erasmus (who memorized him) -- why is he still missing? This is still the best thing going in apps for Latin, but I hope we don't have to wait several years for the next update again, especially regarding the above problems.

The new update made my jaw drop. The only thing that could make this app better now is if the author continues to update pictures and texts. I'd personally like to see some later texts added fro. The medieval period and beyond. History of the King's of Britain and Utopia are two that specifically come to mind... A full screen feature for the texts would also be appreciated. Thank you for keeping Latin alive and relevant!

Best Latin app
The latest update is more than I could have asked for!! Now SPQR is not only an incredible Latin reference for the advanced student (most notably the searchable L&S dictionary and excellent Latin authors), but now it is a perfect tool for the high school classroom! There is a flash card feature, which can be shared with students, as well as a new grammar quiz option. Not only can students practice translating and identifying verb forms, but now teachers can create quizzes and informal assessments. This app is fantastic!!

this is the most amazing thing in the universe
If you are worried about paying for this app because of the negative reviews, don't. its AMAZING!!! i am in AP Latin and this app is so helpful. We are translating Caesar and Virgil this year and I love that i don't have to take my books home because the original latin texts are right there. i absolutely love the dictionary. don't listen to people that say its confusing. If you take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the dictionary, it makes complete sense. I absolutely adore the learning section. It is great for reference and the Comical grammar section makes me smile :) there is also a great grammar game section that I use to brush up on the subjunctive and other verb forms. The quotes and pictures are great. I love the amount of history included in this app. There are complete books in latin and english included, such as the Aeneid. Also, all six volumes of The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire are included in the history section. AMAZING! Thank you SO much for making this! there is so much information in here! I was debating buying latin textbooks so that i could simply have the original latin of Ovid and Catullus- not anymore! The information included in this app is easily worth hundreds or maybe even thousands of dollars. This is totally worth every penny. As soon as i found this, i sent a message to my old Latin teacher telling her how amazing it is and she will be buying it as well. I will also be buying all of the other Latin apps from this creator. Thank you for making this. I have been nerding out over it and squealing like a little girl since I bought it. The only thing i could recommend is a less formal english translation of Latin text. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for making this! Buy it! its totally worth it! even if you only slightly like Latin you will LOVE this app!

Pretty much the best app of hundreds that I've bought. I use this as a supplement to working through Wheelock's Latin on my own. The grammar test tool would have been worth the price alone.
