  • A Very good product!

    By Massmary
    Reliable and easy to use for lyric diction. I’ve never had a problem with updates, unlike Oxford products. Buy Collins.
  • Lame

    By byocarbon
    Not worth paying for. 1. Word of the Day is set up backwards. Instead of giving you a German word they give you an English word. Backwards from every other Word of the Day app I have used. 2. Bare minimum of a dictionary. For example, if you look up the word ‘boy’ in the app, it gives you only a one word translation, Junge, and absolutely nothing else. Correct, but what about the other 3 definitions and all the sample sentences that Collins’ full website has? Really - 1 word on the app vs 4 complete definitions and 7 samples on the full website. Overall, a very bare bones app - for the cost a full dictionary should be provided.
  • Great Product

    By Clxx
    Have used Collins through Spanish and German courses. It is dependable and excellent for immediate reference.
  • Pretty good

    By Trampenator
    Most words but missing some. Also, doesn’t provide perfect tense helping verb (hat, sein) or even corresponding past tense form of verb.
  • Beautiful and effective

    By Fenrirxc13
    Great definitions, diction (in precise IPA), and design of app. Needs work in small areas. 1. When using a Bluetooth keyboard on ipad, the app cuts off the bottom half to make space for the onscreen keyboard, even though it isn't there. 2. Could use basic hotkeys, so that one could, without having to take their hands of the keyboard, select the search bar, type their word, then use the arrow keys to select their word and see its definition. I will check back and raise or lower my rating depending on whether or not the developers are given the chance to actually continue to support the app.
  • Basic documentation missing

    By Sjmiller777
    There is no introduction explaining the abbreviations used in the dictionary. This is essential to it's usability, but I have not been able to find it after many attempts and navigation.
  • Seems to work now under iOS 4.

    By WhySoftwareSucks
    Seems to work now under iOS 4. Thanks. One criticism: Saying in the app ad that it is now "Optimized for iOS 4" is a little silly. Old Review: Does not work under iOS 4. Crashes on startup under iOS 4. Was a nice (if a little pricey) program before so I hope they will update it to run under iOS 4. I hope they won't leave it broken hoping to sell the even pricier Pro version. That would be completely unethical.
