Other things...
・Attikos is a work in progress and feedback is very much appreciated. The updated app provides a 'Report a Problem' button that makes it very easy to let us know of any bugs in the app, typos in the texts, or errors in the morphological information. This can also be used for general suggestions or thoughts concerning the app. Additionally, if you provide your email address we can update you on our progress in regards to your request or ask for clarification if necessary. 
・Attikos is currently being used by Greek readers all over the world. One thing that we would like to do is to provide a more localized application for international users. If you would like to translate the information provided about the application in the app store, as well as other information within the app please send an email to


  1. We're all very excited! But any date yet?

  2. All apps and updates have to be reviewed by Apple before they can be sent to the app store. Presently the Attikos 2.0 update is sitting in that review limbo. Barring any unforeseen issues during the review process it should be available for download any day now! I will post additional info as it arrives!


  3. Great! Hope to have it before I leave for Russia at the end of the month!
