Electronic Latin Dictionaries

Linda Emanuel shared some "reviews" from a UK Latin listserv regarding a variety of electronic Latin dictionaries. There are several which are available as an iOS (iPod/iPad/iPhone) app:

Two Latin Immersion Experiences for Summer 2015

Not only teachers, who may wish to develop their ability use Latin actively and extempore in the classroom to augment whatever teaching methods they prefer to use, but anyone at all devoted to Latin, such as professors, graduate students, and those who read Latin for personal enrichment, can benefit from both of these week-long seminars, which are exclusively aimed at helping those who take part to acquire a more instinctive and active command of the Latin language.
