This has a decently large number of entries, but too many of them provide obscure or uncommon translations of what should be ordinary words. There are also often far too many alternatives provided, with no indication of usage for each one. And be sure to use correct accents when looking up Greek words, otherwise you will not find what you're looking for. All that said, it's a good effort and among the few really useful Greek-English dictionaries for iOS for someone who has a decent grasp of grammar and syntax but needs to build vocabulary. Four stars for that, which would be three if there were any competition.
As a first year Greek student I find this app to be convenient. I like the vocabulary words that pop up to test my knowledge and provide New words for new learning. I do wish some of the pronunciations of the vowels would be Consistent with the textbook from William D. Mounce basics of Biblical Greek Grammar. I realize this App is set up for modern Greek and not Koine Greek, so, what I really mean is it would be nice if this app included Koine Greek or aBiblical Greek option. No disrespect to modern Greek intended here. In fact, as implied above, the modern Greek is great for expanding my knowledge and possibly preparing me for a trip to Greece some day. For the curious of Koine Greek Mounce students, I leave the following; α as in father β as in Bible γ as in gone δ as in dog ε as in met ζ as in daze η as in obey θas in thing ι as in intrigue κ as in kitchen λ as in law μ as in mother ν as in new Ξ as in axiom ο as in not π as in peach ρ as in rod σ as in study τ as in talk υ as in chute or German “u” φ as in phone χ as in loch or bach ψ as in lips ω as in tone
I don’t understand the point of this if it doesn’t work as it’s fully intended to. Waste of money !!!! I want to learn the definition of a word in Greek. This will not tell you what a word means in Greek. It only translates the word for you. This isn’t at all a dictionary. It’s a translator.
This is the best of the Greek dictionary apps. I'm living in Athens for the year and use it all the time. Note that it is English, not American, so some of the English requires further translation if you're from the US. (Minor inconvenience for such a useful tool.) The new phrase book is useful, both as a resource and as a study aid.
