German Language Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for speakers of German wanting to discuss the finer points of the language and translation. It's 100% free, no registration required.

There are a number of applications relating to introductory German, dictionaries etc. available on the app store. Have people had any success with any of them and which ones are worth trying?

Specifically I am interested in a full course (like Rosetta Stone), rather than just applications for memorizing words.

Is anyone able to find a English-Deutsch-English dictionary for iPad/iPhone? –  hhh Dec 23 '12 at 0:20

I have created an iOS app that helps you learn more than 1000 German nouns for free.

We all know how hard it is to learn der, die, das, so I have created an app that makes you learn by playing.

Learning German nouns has never been so easy. Try it by yourself, for free.

Take a look at this new program for iPad and iPhone: http://www.learngerman.ch About 3'000 words for level B1 and B2.

Apart form the apps Gigili and Splattne suggested I also discovered:

Busuu: This is a course based format. You can try it for free, but you must pay for the more advanced lessons.

Rosetta Stone: If you buy Rosetta Stone, you get access to the iPad app. This is a fairly expensive option, but its the full Rosetta stone experience on the iPad.

I didn't try it myself (yet):

CanooNet Mobile

From the app's description:

  • German dictionary, grammar reference, and spelling aid combined in a single app
  • offline Mode: CanooNet works without network access
  • fast and powerful search engine
  • convenient search and browse history
  • direct access to LEO translations and Wikipedia articles

You can try it for free (20 searches), the full version costs 15 Euro. The download is around 600 MB.

Bought the full version when it was reduced 50%. It's quite good and includes a lot of content from the website (not only the actual dictionary) in a form that is well-suited for a small display. –  OregonGhost Aug 7 '11 at 13:21
    
...this is much simpler and much easier to use dictionary over Duden, Pons and Langenschaft iPad/iPhone dictionaries. But this does not have pronunciation --. I like the synonym-tree, Leo/Wikipedia redirection and integration of rules close to words (unlike with other apps). +1 –  hhh Dec 23 '12 at 0:18
