Ratings and Reviews

First word I looked for wasn't there !!!!

sheely-wheely

I purchased this app to help with my son's spellings. Part of the homework is to look up the words in a dictionary, so I thought I would spend the £11.99 on the Oxford English Dictionary, as this was bound to be the best! The first word on his list was "anaconda" and it is not in here!

The whole point of purchasing the app was to avoid "Googling" the words, but this dictionary failed at the first hurdle. Very disappointed.
