"Scam artists but older versions still work"
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
The upgrade prices and the ridiculous prices for each module (now duplicated with Collins dictionaries as well) should alert anyone with any sense to stay away from this pack of wolves.
I see people who upgraded to version 5 have been shut out in Leopard and have to pay another $20 per dictionary.
If you are online, there are better versions for each language which you can bookmarklet in your browser for quick use - dict.leo.org for German - English for example. On the other hand, when you find yourself offline Ultralingua (or its equivalent) can be useful.
Good news - if you can live with non-Universal Binary, version 4 works just fine under Leopard and doesn't show any signs of breaking in future versions of the OS either. The interface I don't find particularly Windows-like, just very plain-jane. But it works. And that's all we need.
Screw Ultralingua. After seeing what they did to the people who upgraded to the most recent version, they will not be seeing any more of my money.
Talk about a good concept gone bad.
