"Ultralingua has been an invaluable tool for me! I travel outside of the United States with some regularity. Ultralingua Spanish has helped me expand my vocabulary and help with conversations and written correspondence. It's also helped me understand a lot of the signs and informational placards that are posted. It has really boosted my confidence when traveling abroad!"

"I have your Spanish/English and have been using it for many many years. I love this app so much that I tell everyone I possibly can about it. Every time one of my friends gets a new iPhone and asks me what apps they should get this is at the top of my list."

"I'm an undergrad linguistics major, and you're apps have helped immensely so far with learning foreign languages!"

"With an Italian father-in-law, a German mother-in-law, and Mexican parents, the languages fly fast and loose in my family! I am in need of help with my German, and your dictionary is a Great help!"

"Ive been learning Italian with the Ultralingua App and my study group have been impressed with the ability of quick searching whereas the traditional dictionaries take ages. The Conjugation has been an excellent way for a very quick verification."

"This app simply works. Its not filled with gimmicks, its intuitive, its the best!"

"Working in translation, your apps offer me immediate access to a wealth of information whenever I am on the go. Keep up the good work!"
