The best dictionary app

Brenton Barron

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

Number One. The Best. No need to say anymore.

A great dictionary at an even greater price


This is easily the best dictionary I've found so far. One of its best features is that you can click on any word in a definition and jump to a definition for that word, which is helpful if a definition contains a word you don't know. I originally had a problem with sticky keys, where the magnification of a letter on the keyboard would stay magnified, but this problem seems to have fixed itself. I've also been informed that a version 3.0 update to this app is on the way, so this might stop the problem from recurring in future.
