Terminology is a browser for the English language – part dictionary, part thesaurus and part research tool. Terminology makes it easy to explore words and phrases, diving down to more and less specific terms - accessing the web and other apps for more detail and sharing.
More than a dictionary, Terminology can be extended with custom actions to search the Internet and other reference apps – making it a great place to start all your searches.
Use the share extension to select text anywhere, in any app, and look it up in Terminology.

Will charge you twice if you update.
I purchased the pro version of Terminology a few updates back - around their second version. After the update, features were revoked and I was seeing ads again. The Pro option doesn’t carry over.
This is very stupid.
I love the simple layout of this app. I like the alphabetical order of the listings. Highly recommend this app.
