***** “I’m much more confident in my Portuguese now that I have a way to quickly find words I don’t know.” - User Review


***** “Just got back from two months in Brazil...and this app was my bff. It was extremely useful having this on hand for translating both directions. The quick-tap autofill is really good when you’re not really sure of a spelling, and having a list of my most recent searches helped jog my memory and actually learn some Portuguese.” - User Review


***** “To use as a translator, it’s the best in the world. It’s better than carrying around a small dictionary! It also brings up the words you type, which is handy if you’re not a good speller! And you don’t have to be online! Great work Accio!” - User Review

Pros and cons of Portuguese-English Dictionary from Accio app for iPhone and iPad

Portuguese-English Dictionary from Accio app good for

Great app. Tons of words, no Internet needed, only two bucks. What more is there to say?
To use as a translator its the best in the world. Its better than carrying around small dictionary! It also brings up the words as you type, which is handy if your not a good speller! And you dont have to be on-line! Great work Accio!
I travel very often, and this beats using any other kind of translator. Its wonderful not needing the Internet! Thanks much, but I think the app would be more attractive at $1.
The interface is very easy and it does what is expected for a pocket dictionay, including idiomatic expressions. It also shows, when needed, the different portuguese words used in Brazil and Portugal.
Has every word you will need. And I mean not just basic tourist thing. It does not pronounce it, so you have to be able to read it.
I had been looking all over the app store for a good, easy to use Portuguese dictionary, and Im happy to say I found a great one. Im much more confident in my Portuguese now that I have a way to quickly find words I dont know. While this is not an app that teaches Portuguese, it is a great supplement to ones that do, and is easy and quick.

Some bad moments

I guess you get what you pay for. Ive used more expensive translators with success, but I decided to give this little one a try. Many common words on signage and such dont come up with anything when I type them in. The phrasing, or usage, of the words is minimal at best. I say skip this one, buckle down, and pay for one of the more complete translators.
I personally dont like this app. For a paid app I was expecting more vocabulary and verb conjugations but you get none of that here. This is at best a free app but did not expect this for 3.99. If you need a dictionary app for Portuguese I suggest you wait for a better one or search for a different one. Get this app only if you really need a dictionary and cant find anything better.
Very Poor vocabulary and translation. The author clearly does not know much about the Portuguese Language.I would never recommend this app. As a Portuguese and English teacher, I need to have good tools. This product is certainly the worst tool ever. It is a shame Apple store does not have a good variety of is kind of product.I have been waiting. Mibagyn California/ Sao Paulo.
