Wired calls it a "hidden gem". It's a "staff pick" on http://www.apple.com/webapps. AppSafari says "Overall this is a powerful and extremely well designed app and a must have in your reference list." The new Ultralingua Mobile multilingual dictionary for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch has received rave reviews since its release.

Light usage of the Ultralingua iPhone dictionary is free. Those needing more than a few searches per day will want to subscribe to the service. For $29.95 per year, users have unlimited access to all of Ultralingua's online dictionaries from their desktop and laptop browsers.
