The app is perfect but since yesterday it has some problems with translations, often it doesn't find words and if it does, it provides just one translation without examples or conjugations as it was before. Please check the app to fix it. It was so useful 🙏

It's just awesome! I love especially the vocal translation: push button, speak, listen (and read) translation in different language - Done. Also good if you need to tell somebody something in their language. Or take picture of a text (in picture, etc) translate all text or only chosen parts. So simple. It also works to crossover to other available languages, just pick the next language. Tip for developers: for learning purpose it would be great to be able to slow down the spoken translation.

An excellent dictionary showing the possible uses of words. I use this for individual words, but I still use Google Translate for sentences and phrases I don't know. One downside is that PONS has to restart every time you switch to another app, which is annoying when I'm adding a bunch of flashcards on my phone. But otherwise, really useful.
