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.

Very Good App — a couple of features would make it awesome
This app offers a very nice package of Latin resources, which work as advertised. It's got a better collection of resources than any other Latin app I've seen on the App Store. There are just a few more features, however, which would put it over the top: (1) A word-analysis tool – something like the Latin morphological analysis on Perseus, or just the Whitaker's Words program available on the web; put in a form and the tool tells you what it could possibly be — for nouns, which number and case; for verbs, which tense, person, number, mood, voice, etc. (2) If you have the word-analysis tool, you could also search for inflected forms in the dictionary — so you wouldn't have to figure out the root in order to find the vocabulary (3) Last, this would also let you highlight a word in one of the included texts and do an immediate dictionary lookup for it, which would be very helpful to students, instead of flipping back and forth between text and dictionary.

Unresponsive author, scrolling problem
When switching between English and Latin, the scrolling position is not kept. A very significant drawback for me.

Waaay too expensive
First off, you can only search for lexical entries without it giving the root of the word. Yes, the app uses a basic version of Whitaker's words, but it is so much less useful then the website. This was my main purpose of buying this app. Second, the translations of historical works don't give line numbers. So you have to fumble through hundreds of lines to find what you're looking for. $6 for this app?!? No way! What a waste of money... Do not be me.

Awesome Dictionary
This Ap is the best buy out there. The dictionary is the digitized version of the huge Lewis & Short Latin dictionary that "grown up" classical scholars use. Now I can take it with me wherever I go. For beginners there is Whitaker's words as well as a basic Latin grammar. If that weren't enough, there is a nice selection of major Latin works, some even have translations (e.g. Vergil & Caesar). As a Latin teacher, I would especially recommend this Ap to those who will be taking AP Latin. Please don't listen to the haters who whine that the dictionary is confusing. It is one of the best there is. Another advantage is that the poems in the authors section have line numbers -- which are lacking in other Latin Poet aps. Perhaps the only addition to this ap I would suggest is that a search engine be added so that you could look up word usage within an author's works or through different authors. Other than that, I think this ap is perfect.

Great app
This is a great app overall, with only one slightly annoying flaw. There is no ability to bookmark. When I'm reading through vergil and want to check my translation a lot of scrolling is needed. Please add a bookmarking feature!!
