Mate for iOS
Great translator
I compared it with Yandex translator, and was surprised to get the impression that Yandex translator in some sentences simply translates each word separately without seeing the sentence as a whole. Translate as accurately as possible translated all the sentences that I tested.

Very handy
I really like the totally reduced design. Compared to the other dictionary apps it seems to provide the biggest vocabulary. Great app!

Great for free version!
ThankU so much! Very comfortable and simple application, clean UI and without adware. Killer feature is: disable history in settings! That's really good idea, no one didn't made it ;)

History, synonyms and quality!
History is implemented extremely conveniently! The quality of translations is also very good. At least from German to English and French. Variety of synonyms also pleased.
