- Sounds-like and often-confused
- Fast pattern-matching search

One of the best Thesaurus
The Chambers Dictionary and Chambers Thesaurus apps are class leaders. I don't think you can get any better apps, for general English dictionary use or for helping with crosswords.
These apps are well presented, easy to use and full of useful information. As an avid crossword doer, I find these apps invaluable, especially when a "little help" is needed (e.g. anagrams, wildcard characters, etc.).
Special mention must go to the developers who are very responsive when contacted about any bugs, etc. First class service!
This is a great app which we wouldn't be without. There is also a great development team behind the scenes. We emailed them recently when an upgrade on the ipad caused problems with the keyboard. They responded promptly and also let us know when the bug had been fixed. Fantastic service!
Separate but integrated
Lots of synonyms
