Ratings and Reviews
International English is not US English!!
Extremely disappointed with this - it’s the awful and hideous US English. Words that end in ‘ise’ such as recognise, organise, etc., are listed ONLY in the US equivalent. The Thesaurus only suggests American spellings. For example, the Thesaurus entry for ‘distinguish’ suggests words such as ‘particularize’ and ‘characterize’. There is no option to switch off ‘US English’ for the excellent British English. I don’t know why they say International English in the description, which is misleading... International English is British English and not the disgusting ‘US English’. Anyway, I asked iTunes for a refund which they’ve given me.
