Excellent App


I have tried a few dictionaries and found this app to be amongst the best. Mainly due to the search tool and it's availability off line. Often I know a word but cannot spell it correctly. The app offers up many "sounds like" results and more often than not I will find the word that I am looking for.

Superb & easy


Never feel lost for words again as this app doesn’t just cover spelling but gives meaning, used the word in a sentence, for context, plus it has a thesaurus in it too. Of all the apps i own this is the most used and practical.
Thank you
