Greek-English Lexicon is an Ancient Greek dictionary suitable for students of the Ancient Greek language. It is the 1924 Liddell & Scott edition, which is in the public domain and has entries for 116,505 words, including definitions, etymologies, and citations. There are App Preferences for setting the font size, even if some users couldn't find it.
User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.
There's no question that having a portable LSJ is a great boon for reading Greek. Kudos for a fine job of porting this classic work to the iPhone. I would have preferred, however, to see LSJ come to iPhone as, well, more iPhone-ish. Despite the screenshots, the app takes up the whole screen, covering up the status bar at the top; there's really no need for that, and I for one like to keep an eye on the time and the battery meter. The problem with the lack of a splash screen or set of instructions is simply that the app blanks the screen and takes a long time to load, so perhaps what we really need is some indication that that is precisely what is going on. Finally (and I think worst of all), this app, like its Lewis & Short Latin Dictionary counterpart, has a name that is longer than the iPhone can display, which makes it an ugly duckling as it sits next to other apps on the main screen. But the good news is that the developer is obviously responsive to user feedback posted here (to any who have missed it, you can change font size, keyboard click, and keyboard format under "Settings"). Let's hope this app continues to evolve.
This app fills a real need. Students of ancient Greek will find it very useful to have L&S in such a convenient format. Unfortunately, the application itself has some flaws. The lack of a final sigma is distracting. (If this is a coding issue, maybe the developer should consider switching to a lunate sigma?) Worse is that I sometimes have problems getting the keyboard to appear, in spite of multiple taps. Restarting my iPhone seems to help here. And cross-referenced words are only sometimes hyperlinked; it would greatly increase the app's utility if all cross-references had links. Despite these issues, it's a useful app, and at $1.99, the price is right. I'd happily pay a little more for an updated version that was a little more functional. I'd also be curious to know whether the abridged L&S (the "Little Liddell") is out of copyright. If so, it would be worth converting to the iPhone: with its expanded collection of morphological forms, it would be even more useful for Greek students wondering whether something is an aorist or a perfect.
Update - the final sigma was added in a recent update, which is great. And I'm not having a problem with the keyboard anymore, which is good. I would still like some sort of opening menu or cover page. It just feels unfinished. I'm extremely glad to have a Greek Dictionary on my iPhone. I have been waiting for this since the App Store was released! However, I do agree with the earlier reviewers on a couple points. Namely 1) no final sigma. I mean, we have an L&S on our phone and we can't get the alphabet right? 2) a list of abbreviations used would be great for most people. 3) a cover page. It isn't very nice to look at when the opening screen comes up; confused me the first time. 4) fix the bug that doesn't bring up the keyboard. 50% of the time I have to re-launch the app. I'll improve my rating if some of these get addressed. Overall, I'm glad to have it.
As a student of Ancient Greek, I'm delighted to find this app. Just wish I had found it before I bought my hardcopy of Liddell & Scott (which I don't bother to lug to the coffee house where I study Greek.) My only minor gripe (and I'm a font developer, so go figure) is that the lowercase sigma at the end of words should be the final sigma form, not the medial form. Should be easy to reprogram the app to know when to use the final form, I would think. Just a minor annoyance for a typophile and perfectionist such as myself. Other than that, it's great! Well, it would be nice if there were a way to get back to the search field after following some of the links. In fact, an interface like that of the Collins Spanish dictionary would be really fine; but then, it cost a whole lot more! (But, highly recommended!) And how do you enlarge the font size? Maybe I'm overlooking some features.
Despite the few things lacking from this program, it definately deserves five stars. Having L&S on my iPod has made translation work go by much quicker and has taken a few pounds off of my back--both of which are appreciated. The final sigma problem is fixed with the update and the settings menu now let's us choose our own keyboard layout. The only things I would like to see at this point is some kind of intro page with information on the lexicon as well as an instruction page on the program and an abbreviation guide. A splash screen on start-up would also give it a sense of polish--which is really all the app needs right now as the basic functionality is all there. Three dollars is a steal for this. Buy it.
