You would think that the big name dictionary Apps would offer the best iPad dictionaries, but for some unfathomable reason the bigger the name, the more user unfriendly and poorly designed they seem to be.
This App is the opposite - I've used the PC version of WordWeb for years and found it to be useful, accurate and functional, and so is this version.
Best of all, you can turn off Noah Webster's abominable made up spelling, what a joy!

The best dictionary app

I have tried many dictionary apps.
This one is outstanding.
So impressive and so user-friendly.
