iCaramba Spanish Dictionary is a small dictionary with pronunciation. This app was part of the Spanish course by iLoveLingo, but it has now been released for free on the Mac App Store. There are quite a few words, but not nearly enough to be called a dictionary. It is more of a list of words with their pronunciation.

There are two ways in which you can find words. The main window shows them all in alphabetical order. There is a column for the word in English, and one for the word in Spanish, and articles are added to the Spanish words when needed, which is nice. On the right of each row is a button that lets you hear the word's pronunciation. Although the speaker doesn't seem to be a native, his pronunciation is very good. If you don't want to scroll to find your word, you can access a menu with all the letters of the alphabet, which, when clicked, will take you to that section of the list. So, for example, if you want to find the word "East", you can simply click on "E". It is certainly faster, but a search function would have been nice.

This is not the kind of dictionary that you would need if you were serious about learning Spanish, mainly because it is short and there are some errors in it. Despite of that, it has some useful words, especially for travelers.
