Bob in Tampa's Review of Ultralingua Portuguese English

Reviewed on 9/11/19 2:12 PM

I lived in Brasil 12 years and read/write/speak Portuguese. I'm familiar with most of the available dictionaries but have never seen one as good and as useful as this one. The conjugation option is particularly helpful. This is a quality product worth much more than the $20 price!

Fantastic.

Brian Horneck's Review of Ultralingua Portuguese English

Reviewed on 9/11/19 2:12 PM

Living in Brazil and had the false idea that the most expensive dictionary would be the best. I was way wrong! This dictionary is seriously lacking and often does not have what I'm looking for or gives a bad translation. I have another dictionary that was practically free and I use it more. Look elsewhere!

Awesome app!

Don't like it at all. Very limited. Hardly enough words. Mainly hate it because definitions are so skimpy. Want my money back.

In Brazil now

App is great for anyone serious about learing portuguese, really easy to use and very intuitive. One star short of 5 bc it doesnt distinguish between portuguese portuguese and brazilian portuguese, please please please update and fix this there are some very distinct differences.

It's just ok

Eatsoy's Review of Ultralingua Portuguese English

Reviewed on 9/11/19 2:12 PM

I originally gave this a good rating bit since studying and learning more português I found this dictionary to be seriously lacking. An entry will offer several possible translations without explanation. The dictionary tries to oversimplify the language and sometimes give you a misleading translation. Careful.

Disappointing

Dpslm's Review of Ultralingua Portuguese English

Reviewed on 9/11/19 2:12 PM

In the first week since purchasing this pricey app, here are the words I looked up but that were not listed in this dictionary: anzol (fish hook), arrai (ray fish, skate), comover (to move, to stir), ralar (in the colloquial usage meaning to exert onesself), paquerar (to flirt), iguaria (a snack, delicacy), sovina (mean), bitolado (narrow-minded), quitute (snack), guloseima (a rich snack), caule (stem), foods like moqueca, feijoada, vatapa... the list goes on. I wasn't looking to see what was omitted - these are just words that I came across in my Portuguese studies. Considering the high price, this app is in serious need of major updating, and despite some nifty features (a history of words looked up, verb conjugations), I cannot recommend it. At all.

Frustrating

viajante_americano's Review of Ultralingua Portuguese English

Reviewed on 9/11/19 2:12 PM

I bought this dictionary because it was probably the first available for the iPhone and it also always shows up first in searches for Portuguese-English dictionaries. I spend a lot of time in Brazil and having a dictionary on the iPhone is an enormous convenience. But I often find serious problems with the entries in this app: (1) often I can't even find the words that I am looking for, encountered in Folha de Sao Paulo or some revista about the novellas. In other words, palavras that should be in a useful dictionary. (2) many of the definitions offered are too brief and misleading or offer only one meaning when several can be found in other dictionaries (eg the iPhone Aurelio). Sometimes it actually seems to be just plain incorrect. What is strange is that Ulta-lingua offers the excellent Collins dictionary at the same price. they should simply remove this dictionary from their catalog and stick with their much superior alternative The app does offer conjugation of verbs however, and this is very useful but this same feature is available in the Collins dictionary also.

Easy to use, but lacking words

xfan's Review of Ultralingua Portuguese English

Reviewed on 9/11/19 2:12 PM

This ap saves a lot of time over using a paper dictionary, but I find only about 75% of the words I'm looking for and some of those I do find, do not have the appropriate definition. I am taking a Portuguese class, so am not looking up exotic words. I love the features though - it has some really clever usability. Just wish it were more complete and offered an audio pronunciation. I also wish they had a feature comparison of this ap and the more expensive ap. Not sure it's worth the money.
