Ratings and Reviews
Extremely well thought out
Simple example, if you open the app with something copied in the clipboard - it automatically looks up that word! Love it.
Much better and easier to use than the stock ILS dictionaries.
This app is really helpful and very straightforward. It even includes some geographical terms. However, could you please add 'Replacement Level'. Thank you
Luke ayling has ruined this application because he has downloaded and I think he should it as he is destroying this applications credibility
