Italian-English Translation Dictionary and Verbs App Reviews

30 add


Only thing that can make better is audio, but thats sort of update and it would be huge One request though. Can you make a 5 dollar upgrade to pro?

It’s an awesome dictionary. It worth to buy it

Well I was suspected about the price but after buy it, it worked a lot everything is inside and I suggest you all :)

Great, but expensive!

Ive been using Ultralinga for years now and it was one of the applications I missed the most when I gave up my Treo for my iPhone. Ive been PRAYING that Ultralingua have an app someday for the iPhone. The conjugator is great and the upgrades have always been spot on. However... $30 BUCKS!!! As much as I love Ultralingua, I have to think that somebody will come up with a similiar application at a price equal to most of the iPhone applications. Sorry Ultra, but Ill jump ship in a heartbeat.

too much for this

i bought this even though it was a little expensive. i hope it gets an update and when it does, the words are read to u, because that would make learning this a lot easier

Works great, IMO the price is reasonable now

Yes, I admit that I would like the price to be lower as well, but I think for $20, this application has plenty of features to make me happy. I travel on the airplane a lot and so the offline access is very valuable for me. The ability to lookup for words in the airplane without having to bring an additional paper dictionary is a wonderful thing. And some of the places that I travel do not necessary have the wifi or the data access (e.g. when I am not in the US). The app is better than the online dictionary since I could look up the word faster via the search without having to wait for the response to come back from the server. The integrated conjugation is a welcome addition though I would like to be able to look all type of tenses without having to tap the type of tenses that I want to see.

Couldnt be happier with this app!

This little app is awesome and definitely worth the money! Look up a word, tap the desired verb to conjugate - a much faster process than using a paper dictionary. Just think how much money youve paid for your books that take forever to flip through! If youre a serious student or a scholar, I cant tell you how much time and effort you will save! I now dont have to carry half the books to my Italian lesson, this is incredible! Get this thing now, you wont regret it!

Not perfect, but does some crucial things no print dictionary can

Two major reasons to get this: 1. You always have your iphone with you, so it eliminates the need to carry an additional pocket-sized dictionary around with you; 2. If you enter some conjugated verb, it will tell you what the verb is -- for example, type in fu it it tells you that it is a form of to be (it is the 3rd singular remote past). No small print dictionary does this -- try to look up fu in a pocket dictionary and you dont get anything (though some of the bigger and better print dictionaries have SOME odd verb conjugations listed, but this has all of them, as far as I can tell). This is very helpful if, like me, you dont have all the many tenses and conjugations memorized. However, there are 2 things that keep me from giving this a 5/5. First, relative to the last point, while it will tell you that, for instance, fu is a form of to be, it doesnt tell you what form. You need to click on the conjugations tab, and then go through the different conjugations until you see where it is. This only takes 30 seconds or so, but it could be much easier. Still, a print dictionary wont even tell you what verb it is. But even so, it seems that instead of just telling you that it is a form of to be, it could also just tell you the conjugation. Presumably it knows this information in order to tell you it is a form of to be to begin with. Second, it is not a replacement for a BIG, GOOD print dictionary, since the entries it has dont go into the kind of detail and examples that a good large dictionary will. Again, this seems correctable. Just adding a few megabits to the file size. If they were to make these two very makable adjustments, this application would be an amazing product that could replace even large good print dictionaries. Hopefully they will. Then Ill change my score to 5/5. But until then, it still is extremely useful, easily merits a 4/5, and is well worth getting.

Needs navigation

Seems like a good app but it would really be helpful if you could navigate backwards and forwards through screens youve viewed.


I live in Italy and was hoping for a decent dictionary, especially for the steep price tag. This is not. I have yet to find a word that I have searched for. Do not bother.

Not enough words

For twenty dollars, I was expecting this to be my main dictionary, but Im still left dry on many words. Increase the vocab a bit and this would be worth it. Other than that, I like it.


This is an extremely helpful dictionary. I have used it extensively for intermediate Italian homework and out of 500 words or more that I looked up it only missed one (minestrone). It is also tense-aware and the various conjugations of verbs is invaluable. It also understands plural nouns so if you type in “case” (houses--plural) it goes to “casa” (house) with the correct definition. There was just an upgrade released adding a forward / back and history feature among some other improvements. Although a bit expensive it does way more than any pocket dictionary.


Review of version 1.1 Well, my Italian fiancée visited me for the holidays so I purchased this App for those times when we needed clarification. Unfortunately, it was only marginally useful as it found less than 25-percent of the words we entered. I see the developer offers a larger and more full-featured (6.1mb vs. 1.9mb) offering, although I don’t feel inclined to pay another 25-bucks on top of the $19.99 already invested. I’ll hold off until another variant from another vendor comes along. - Not Recommended Regards, ~DD

Sorry I spent the money

This is a disappointing program ... about a third of the simple everyday words one looks up -- words like "afford" -- arent in the dictionary. I get better results from the FREE translation program I downloaded than I do from this. Its the worst value of any iPhone program I have.

Very good missing one thing

Use this almost every day in learning Italian. It does not provide Italian pronunciations as it does for English. (unless Im missing something) Maybe the program will be upgraded? I find 99% of both Italian and English words when I use this program. It took a bit of getting used to toggling back and forth from verbs pages to Italian/English look-up pages, but once you know how to use it, it great!

Amazing App for Serious Italian Students..

I have been using this app for about a year, and it is absolutely the best I have seen yet. Im studying italian grammar with a private teacher, and I rely on this app for everything. Cannot do my homework without it!! Its amazingly easy to conjugate any verb in all tenses, and the dictionary is really very precise. Easy to jump from italian to english, and look up any word by clicking on it. Latest update lets you sort your history which is nice. If youre looking for a more precise study tool and not just an inaccurate phrasebook, this is the app. The price is worth it!

Ultralingua Italian-English dictionary

Very disappointing. Not easy to use. Many common words missing. Compares unfavorably with Larousse French English dictionary available for one-third the price.


Its now also optimised for iPad. Thank you for that!

iPad interface is awesome!

The new version wonderfully uses ipads screen and after the bug fix works well. The app is highly useful, especially the verb conjugations. The dictionary itself is large, but missing a lot of words and expressions. I hope there will be updates to fill in the gaps.

Good App, Great customer Service

I have several foreign language apps and this is one of the best. Its iPad version is excellent. The verb conjugation is especially helpful with its full-screen. I had several questions and the staff was receptive, prompt and helpful. I would definitely recommend this app to anyone studying a foreign language.

Delusa! Expected better.

I have Ultralinguas French ap, and I use it frequently. So I expected the Italian ap to be similar. There are many gaps in the word bank in this ap. For example, key words related to current technologies are not to be found, including email and software. Even if the Italian equivalents are cognates, they should be included. These are just two examples of many that I have found to be missing. Disappointed!
