Mac App Store: News and FAQ

Last month, we launched a brand new app in the Mac App Store. Ultralingua Dictionary for the Mac App Store is an easier way to find and install our Mac software and we wanted to say thanks for all your support! If you've been waiting to see if the new app is worth it, wait no more - We have received excellent reviews and were even featured in the "New and Noteworthy" section of the Mac App Store four weeks in a row!

Mac App Store FAQ

We've had a couple questions about the Mac App Store version, and we answered them here.

To celebrate, we gave our Mac fans 50% off Ultralingua Dictionary version 7.3 last Friday. We hope you took advantage of the sale and want to thank MacZOT for partnering with us. Check your preferences here to make sure you receive information that is the most relevant to your favorite platforms and languages.

Check out this video featuring developer insights and favorites regarding the making of the Ultralingua app.

Sneak Peek: Ultralingua Update for iOS

We're really close to launching our Ultralingua 1.5 app for iPhone and wanted to give you a sneak peek! The new update is for Ultralingua, Collins, and Vox dictionaries for iPhone and iPad.

With this update, iPhone users get infinite scrolling, one of the most popular features of our iPad apps. iPad users will get an updated retina display.

You'll love the benefits of infinite scrolling. When you search for a word, you won't see incomplete entries and you'll be able to continue scrolling so you can find the word you're looking for.

Apple's retina display on the new iPad is amazingly clear. With this update to your Ultralingua app, we bring you completely new icons and text display to take advantage of all retina has to offer.



Look for the update in your Ultralingua app soon and stay tuned to our blog, Facebook, and Twitter to be the first to know when it becomes available!

Ultralingua for Android Users

You've been asking about the availability of our apps on Android, and we wanted to fill everybody in. We hope to offer an option for Android users in the future, but have something to hold you over in the meantime: the mobile version of our online dictionary.

Visit our online dictionary from your Android phone for limited searches in any Ultralingua dictionary. It includes the verb conjugation and number translation tools in addition to your favorite dictionary content. Read the blog post and try it for yourself at ultralingua.com/mobile.

As always, you'll be the first to know about product launches at Ultralingua. Check our blog, Facebook, and Twitter pages for more updates as they come, and let us know how you like Ultralingua Mobile.


An Inside Look at Hyperpolygots

Have you heard of Michael Erard? He's a linguist, journalist, and more recently, an author. His latest book, called Babel No More, is about hyperpolygots, individuals who can learn more than just a handful of languages.

Mr. Erard is a monolingual himself, but has studied English and linguistics since the early 1990s. He's written another book on disfluencies, but Babel No More has a more narrative nature. He has done endless research and has great tips for language learners.

Read the complete interview with Michael Erard on our blog and check out book details at babelnomore.com.

We would like to thank Mr. Erard for talking with us about his language experience and new book. If you have any interesting stories or news about your language learning experiences, contact us via Twitter or Facebook.

Tools to Try: Tip of My Tongue
