So Incredibly Easy to Use
Having been brought up by a Mother who was OCD about not only word and and phrase usage but the entire "language" we spoke at home. It's a habit for me because it was the way she grew up herself and we had no idea that others would often misunderstand us. It's sometimes difficult because I've been accused of using words that most people have never even heard nor read. I simply did' understand when I started school. I am definitely not smarter than they but it forces me to constantly need to use both synonyms and antonyms that are perhaps more colloquial than what we spoke while growing up. THIS IS THE THESAURUS FOR ANYONE. Period. So easy to use, immediate results, so many words from which to choose thus making my own "language" much more understandable.
I had been looking for an app that would speak as well as give me another word(s) to use. I was truly happy with my selection.
This app has been by far the best app I've used when it comes to finding words that I don't know.
