Pros and cons of French-English Translation Dictionary and Verbs app for iPhone and iPad

French-English Translation Dictionary and Verbs app good for

Previously it was a very good program to use and it is now very much better and easier to use in every way. Thank you very much. However, like several users, I dont find the dictionary adequate and have to use others from time to time to find synonyms or various words which are not there, otherwise I love it.
Improvements Id love to see in coming versions: - The app crashes when you search certain words, its always the same words. Its happened on about 4 different French words for me. (So I dont have to keep a separate list of words not included in the app, so I can search everything in one app) - ability to add new words to the dictionary - ability to add other definitions/translations to words already in the dictionary - ability to add phrases and their translated equivalents - The "switch language" button is a bit too close to the x (clear search field) button - more example usages/phrases such as the ones in real (book) dictionaries (Robert Collins, larousse, etc) - many French expressions are translated into only UK expressions, and I have to then google the expression, itd be great to have US equivalents also - ability to lock the screen orientation within the app (I use this app a lot while reading in bed)
This is one of the main apps I was excited for and its every bit as good as the desktop version and cheap to boot. With a great verb conjugation dictionary, its also much better than Wedict and well worth the price.
Works great so far. No idea what the other complaints are all about. $20 is a bit pricy though.
its pretty good and all but $20 is pretty steep for this app its good in french class for me so considering ill be using this for at least a yr i guess $20 is somewhat worth it i dont recommend this for a one time kind of use thing tho
Great app with a nicely implimented verb conjugation feature - with all the tenses (in both languages). Solid value, considering my two daughters are studying French & they (& I ) have this deep resource easily at hand. Next feature request is for a voice synthesizer.

Some bad moments

I hate the new version, why did you change for such a crapy one. Totally pissef off
Please, fix this! When I click in the bar, nothing more works...
There is a bug because it does not turn as you turn the ipad.
I was about to update this app on my iPad but it was rerouted to app store and asked for my confirmation to pay 19.99 !!
A proverb says tha the best is the enemy of the good. I think that it is what happened with the Ultralingua dictionnaries (I have three of them), they are surely not more useful than the previous version! And before I could chose the right one instantly by looking at the flag on their respective icon. Now I need to put on my reading glasses to read the barely readable text on the icon!
BRING BACK OLD INTERFACE - as option perhaps. OR FIVE NE MY MONEY BACK!! The old design had its flaws (too thick, more taps necessary) but it was efficient. Now u have to scroll kilometres and miles of text to get to what I need and its not good on eye too.
