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.

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!!
