Needs meaning of words

I think that it would be better if this dictionary had the meaning of the words as well, as it would help with kids learning the words if they understood what the words mean. It would also be better if they could be sound button that spelt out the words as well as just say it. Other then at the speech of the words are clearly pronounce and is spoken at a good speed.

DD's Dictionary

This App is perfect for my young dyslexic pupils, and for older ones too. They can change the background colour, it speaks the words to them and it's making writing fun. I've recommended it to parents of the increasing number of youngsters who have iPads, and they love it. I'm really looking forward to seeing how is App develops in the future to extend the vocabulary to suit older users. Thank you!
